It’s a universally known fact that shopping for Dads is incredibly difficult. Every year, when Father’s Day is around the corner, our messages are flooded with questions on which fragrance would be the best for Dad. While many are tempted to purchase a new bottle of the fragrance that their dad has been wearing for years, we would highly recommend that you should use this opportunity to introduce him to a new style, a new scent.
Buying a fragrance is extremely personal and very tricky. So here are some key questions that you need to ask yourself before heading to checkout.
First, think of the ingredients in the perfume that he already wears. Does Dad prefer a musky scent or does he go for a fresh, cool fragrance? The one way that you can’t go wrong when choosing a perfume for Dad is to ensure that you pick a new perfume which has similar notes to the perfume he likes, but is of course, slightly different. That way, you know he will wear it. A second tip that we can give you is, think about his interests. Does he read a lot, or is he adventurous? Does he like swimming or does he spend his days typing away on his laptop? It’s essential to choose a perfume that evokes his vibe and matches his energy.
While you can always get in touch with our Fragrance Expert to help you out, we’ve assembled the 6 best perfumes for men from our collection that will suit every type of Dad.
