When it comes to shopping for Father’s Day, gifting cologne sets is tried and true but it can be a little tricky to pick the perfect scent for Dad. To break the cycle of men’s fragrance bottles collecting dust around the bathroom sink, here is a quick roundup of latest men’s scents to match your father’s unique personality — whether he’s a man’s man who likes warm musks or a hip guy who prefers crisp citruses!
1. L’Occitane Mer & Mistral Collection ($95) – Reminiscent of a summer’s day at the beach, this sparkling fragrance features zesty top notes of lemon and mandarin that give way to a generous heart of cypress, pine and rosemary, so emblematic of the Mediterranean coast. This collector’s set includes: Mer & Mistral Eau de Toilette 2.5 fl.oz, Mer & Mistral After Shave Balm 2.5 fl.oz and Mer & Mistral Shower Gel 6 fl.oz
2. Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Gift Trio ($90) – Encased in a hand grenade shaped bottle, this spicy, woody and oriental scent is highly seductive and intense. An explosive encounter between two accords with detonating tones: the first fuses zesty, fresh notes while the cold spices leave their icy bite. The second, addictive, combines a middle note of incandescent spices with a wholly masculine combination of leather and tobacco and the brute force of vetiver. This set contains: 1.7 oz Eau De Toilette, 1.7 oz Shower Gel and 1.7oz After Shave
3. Tom Ford Noir ($132.19) – Perfect for the Dapper Dad! This oriental, sensual fragrance is an obvious choice for the refined, sophisticated dad who stays sharply dressed and wants his signature scent to match. He’ll appreciate how Tom Ford’s blend of bergamot, violet flower, leather, vetiver and black pepper accents his suit and tie.
4. Versace Eros Gift Set ($85) – Versace Eros is described as the perfect scent for a strong, passionate man who is master of himself. It is a striking fragrance with a wealth of vibrant, addictive notes including fresh mint leaves, Italian lemon zest, and green apple combined with tonka beans, geranium flower, vetiver and cedarwood. This set contains: 3.4 oz Eau de Toilette Spray, 3.4 oz Shower Gel, 2.5 oz After Shave Balm and 2.5 oz Deodorant Stick.
