Fathers Day is coming on the 19th so I thought I would give a list of 5 scents that I think Dad would like. I’m not going to be totally niche-y here since A) I don’t know that the average Dad really needs or wants to be smelling of glove leather, Tikka Masala and sweat the way I do and B) when this is posted there will only be 5 shopping days for to one to purchase. So this list is going to be very Mall Friendly.
Bloomingdale’s carries Annick Goutal, and any Dad would love a bottle of Eau de Sud. It’s citrusy and green, wholly wonderful and often overlooked. At $115 for 3.4oz it’s a bit on the high-side, but it’s worth every penny.
They also carry the gorgeous original Acqua di Parma Colonia in the huge 6oz bottle for $136. It;s a gorgeous classic citrus that was a favorite of Cary Grant. Nothing wrong with that..
Sephora is of course one-stop shopping for this type of thing and they have them practically on the moon, the one place that Bloomingdale’s has not yet reached. So here’s 3 that I like from them:
Dior Eau Sauvage is a classic for a reason. It’s a gorgeous scent with its petitgrain, citrus and vetiver. It’s entirely work friendly; I’ve been wearing it since I was a teen and will continue to do so. Heck, I might want to be buried with it. 1.7oz is $54.
Bvlgari Black would be for the more adventurous Father, with its black tea and hint of rubber. But it is a masterpiece and at $77 for 2.5 oz, a bargain.
I wrote about Tom Ford for Men last week on PST, and I have to add it to the list of scents that would be perfect for Dad’s day. It smells expensive and suave, like the interiors in “A Single Man” look. You can’t go wrong there. At $62 for 1.7oz it’s also a steal.
If you have any suggestions for easily available scents for Father’s Day, leave a comment.
