Am I the only person that almost forgot that it’s Father’s Day- TOMORROW!
I’ve picked a few last minute gifts which you can pick up in town (or even tomorrow morning) which I think any dad would love to receive.
A fragrance is always a great way to go in terms of gifts especially if you already know your Father’s (or partner’s taste).
If you’re looking for a woody night time fragrance then John Varvatos Platinum Cologne is a beautiful option, it’s a real man’s man scent. I actually gift John Varvatos fragrances quite regularly and they’re always loved!
If you’re looking for something for a younger man (like the father of your kids) or maybe your dad is just cooler than mine then I have a few picks too.
Paco Rabanne Invictus is one my boyfriend wears regularly and I really love, it’s the perfect summer scent with citrus and marine notes. Alternatively, I know there are lots of One Million fans out there, again by Paco Rabanne and they made the bottle even better with a rather epic Monopoly Limited Edition.
A recent launch is the Mont Blanc Emblem Absolu which is a new favourite in my family, it’s sweet and fruity but with warm spicy and woody notes which keep it very masculine, plus it comes in a beautiful gold bottle.
But my favourite is the Gaultier Le Male Superman Eau Fraiche, for the bottle alone. If you’re looking for a gift for your perfume-loving Superman then you can’t go wrong with this one, it’s perfect for the summer with notes of neroli, mint and aldehydes.
Also, worth noting, there is a Wonder Woman version which I might buy as it would be the perfect addition to any perfume collection- but maybe not for Father’s day.
If you dream of gifting your dad something luxury but can’t quite afford a Cartier watch then the L’Envole De Cartier gift collection is perfect! It is a unique oriental scent which is both soft and intense, notes of musk mixed with a real freshness and masculine wood and honey notes. All packaged in the famous red Cartier box with an Eau De Parum and Shower gel.
Alternatively, Etro ManRose is another great luxury fragrance, I stupidly didn’t photograph the bottle but it’s a really beautiful but yet elegant one. With warm spicy, aromatic and of course rose notes, it’s a little on the pricier side but with the extra money. Another new launch this year is the Issey Miyake Nuit D’Issey Bleu Astral a citrus, woody and leather scent in a very classic bottle, perfect for any age.
But if you’re not looking for perfumes I have a few options which are easily available in Boots
If you’re on a budget there are two options which I have for you the Superdry Sports wash pack and the Ted Baker Trio set, both include essentials that every dad needs, maybe not the most personal but very useful,
There is also a great offer on the Wahl Classic Grooming Set, it’s a great set with clippers, precision trimmer, combs, scissors and so much more! It’s limited edition and currently half price! I really love the retro feel of this one.
Hope this help you last minute shoppers like myself and hope you have a great Father’s Day tomorrow!
