As the day approaches to thank your father for all he’s done, why not consider gifting him a different aftershave to shake his out of his cologne comfort zone this year?
Givenchy Gentlemen: A zesty top of lemon, bergamot and rosemary are given more depth thanks to unexpected tones of musky iris.
Tom Ford Costa Azzurra Acqua: Perkier than its predecessor, the new generation of the Costa Azzurra fragrance is ideal for the warmer months, and its salty freshness evoking the scent of the rolling seas.
Dsquared2 Wood: Opening with Mediterranean freshness of bergamot, mandarin and lemon, the aroma is enriched with sharp notes of ginger and vibrant tones of violet leaf and cardamom.
Malin + Goetz Stem: Rather than the blooms themselves, this number looks to the greens of the flower, as the name indicates, for its essence. For the outdoorsy type.
Guerlain CUIR Intense: If your father likes a strong, oud-y aroma, then this is for him. Leather scents are balanced by woody notes, delicate florals and smooth apricot accents over a blend of sandalwood, cedar and tobacco.
Father’s Day is right around the corner, falling on Friday, June 21st for 2019 in the UAE. Meaning it’s time to start planning the perfect surprise for your old man, be it a family day out to remember or sourcing that fitting present he never knew he needed.
But whether as an addition to treating him to lunch or a stand-alone present to send for him to open over the weekend, receiving a new fragrance is always a welcome gift.
From Dsquared2’s new Wood fragrance (fresh bergamot, mandarin, lemon over sharp notes and ginger and vibrant tones of cardamom) to Givenchy’s update on the classic Gentlemen scent (a lighter, summer-ready version of the original with notes of bergamot lemon, rosemary iris and musk) there are plenty of new aromas on the horizon to awaken the senses.
See our pick of the best new buys from 2019 to give your father this June, whether you’re celebrating on the 21st or the 16th in accordance with the UK and USA date.
