Forget the socks and the tacky tie this year, for Father’s Day, treat your Dad (or fab Fatherly figure) to something more memorable – a true classic scent! Fragrances come and go, but these 5 eau so amazing fragrances have stood the test of time for all the right reasons, and we’re sure Dad will understand the hype too when gifted one on Father’s Day.
1. Pour Monsieur by Chanel
If soft and subtle is your Dad’s vibe when it comes to fragrances, then we highly recommend Pour Monsieur by Chanel. Delicate and dashing in so many ways, it has been wowing wearers since the 1950s! An absolute gold standard in men’s chypre scents, it opens beautifully with neroli and light citruses before developing into a smooth and warming concoction of spices. It’s a fragrance of pure quality that is guaranteed to put a smile on Dad’s face this Father’s Day!
2. Eau Sauvage By Dior
Released in 1966, Eau Sauvage by Dior has reached legendary status. If your Dad fancies himself as a bit of a dapper gent, then treat his senses to this ground-breaking formula that burst open with robust, uplifting citrus notes before drying down into an elegant earthiness that exudes class, confidence, and charisma. An excellent echo of the past that we’re sure Dad will treasure!
3. Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier
As one of the most distinguished bottles and acclaimed male scents of all time, Dad may be left wondering what he did to be so spoilt come Father’s Day! Smelling as good today as it did when it was released in 1995, your Dad’s spirits will be lifted all day long and beyond, with its powerful notes of mint, cinnamon, vanilla and orange blossom.
4. 1 Million by Paco Rabanne
Ah, 1 Million by Paco Rabanne – it’s bold, it’s ballsy, and with one bottle sold almost every 5 seconds, it’s easily one of the bestselling scents of the last decade! Those numbers are mindboggling, really, but it’s no surprise really when you experience it! With its energising notes of peppermint, blood mandarin, musk and cinnamon, it’s a true day-to-night fragrance, and we reckon Dad will want to take it everywhere with him.
5. Aramis by Aramis
Aramis is one of those iconic scents fans of fragrance have been talking about with awe and admiration for years – over 50 years, in fact! Rich and spicy in aroma, it’s gallant, audacious, and as masculine in characteristics as they come!
