Dads are quite possibly the hardest people to shop for and although gifting cologne is tried and true, chances are you’ve probably overlooked important factors such as Dad’s body chemistry, personality and lifestyle while spritzing through the latest men’s scents.
To find the perfect cologne for Dad, check out the six colognes from FragranceNet.com to match every personality below.
The Dapper Dad: Now Dad can smell as good as he looks. Tom Ford Noir ($128.99) is an obvious choice for the 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, and black pepper accents his suit and tie.
The Outdoorsy Dad: Ideal for the Dad who is an aspiring Paul Bunyan, Dior Homme ($87.99) features a great blend of deep woody smells with a slight, fresh sweetness Citrusy Bergamot, sensual grapefruit blossom and cotton-fresh white musks infuse to create a radiant, contemporary signature.
The Modern Dad: Designed for a Dad who is sophisticated and refined, Valentino Uomo ($109.99) opens with bergamot and myrtle, succeeded in the heart by roasted coffee combined with gianduja cream, on a rich base created of cedar and precious leather.
One of my all time faves, this fresh beachy scent is clean and crisp and perfect for dads young and old. This is one of those scents I can’t stop smelling its warm and comforting and is a great daytime scent.
The Beach Dad: If the beach house is Dad’s most prized possession, Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani ($71.99) is the cologne for him. The blend of sea notes, lime, lemon, and orange shine through from the very first spray till the end. It is at the base where the white musk develops, making for the perfect daytime cologne.
The Prada Luna Rossa Extreme is definitely a standout from most men’s colognes. The warm black pepper and citrus combine to make a strong spicy, warm scent. I love the notes of citrus and how they blend with the warm leathery notes.
A great gift for the dad who loves a crisp, clean suit and is always the office’s best dressed.
The Exec Dad: If your Dad’s office is his second home, Prada Luna Rossa Extreme ($94.99) is the ideal scent for him. This masculine fragrance plays up his serious side while offering a twist of spicy intrigue. The earthy warmth of black pepper contrasts with sharp and citrusy bergamot and is softened by the clean scent of lavender. The complex blend is cradled by the leathery fragrance of labdanum with a highlight of fresh juniper berries.
This bottle is a must for the sporty dad in your life. The trophy like bottle is sure to catch his attention and he will love the fresh scent. One spray goes a long way and I love the staying power of this fragrance. The woody notes draw you in and the grapefruit and mandarin orange notes add a unique quality to this scent. Really love this scent!
The Sporty Dad: For the Dad who is inspired by sporting and the thrill of competition, Paco Rabanne Invictus ($82.99) is the fragrance of a champion. This aquatic, woody fragrance blends the excitement of sport with dreamlike elements that celebrate victory and power.
The Preppy Dad: If your Dad is a fan of golf and tennis then look no further than Lacoste Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc Edition ($44.99). Classy and outgoing, this cologne features a fresh blend of grapefruit, rosemary, Cedarwood and Ylang Ylang.
