FATHER'S DAY FRAGRANCES GIFT GUIDE


A staple gift for any Father figure in your life, is often considered to be a fragrance. With so many choices, and so many different scents, you could be forgiven for feeling slightly overwhelmed. However, with my help and guidance, I am hoping that these fragrances that I have chosen for this Gift Guide, will help put your mind at ease, and steer you into making the right decision for this Father's Day!

RALPH LAUREN - POLO: RED EXTREME

RALPH LAUREN

POLO: RED EXTREME

Top Notes: Blood Orange

Middle Notes: Coffee

Base Notes: Ebony Wood

Ralph Lauren's latest offering to the 'Polo Collection' comes in the form of Red Extreme. The fragrance begins with a sweet opening of the Blood Orange note that soon settles into a richer, denser take with the coffee note taking over.

In terms of the longevity of Red Extreme, it lasted an impressive 6-7 hours upon my skin! I would recommend wearing Red Extreme on a nighttime, perfect for those cooler Summer evenings.

You can purchase Polo: Red Extreme here.

GUCCI GUILTY: PLATINUM EDITION

Top Notes: Lemon, Lavender

Middle Notes: Orange Blossom

Base Notes: Cedar, Patchouli

Gucci are absolutely my go-to brand right now. Anything that they create, I instantly want, and the Guilty fragrance is no exception.

Inspired by the Creative Director; Alessandro Michele, the fragrance is a beautiful blend that is as equally citrusey as it is woody! The opening bursts with the Lemon note, instantly creating a fresh, vibrant feel which after a while, dries down into a spicy, more earthy fragrance.

The longevity of Guilty lasted for up to 6 hours upon my skin, and I would recommend wearing this both during the Summer days and nights. Versatile enough to be worn for any occasion!

You can purchase Guilty - Platinum Edition here.

DAVIDOFF

HORIZON EXTREME

 

Top Notes: Grapefruit, Ginger, Rosemary

Middle Notes: Cypriol Oil, Cedar, Nutmeg, Leather

Base Notes: Amber, Sandalwood

The opening of Horizon Extreme is a strong, powerful start that begins with a spicy yet fresh beginning. During the dry-down, the fragrance becomes more woody which comes with a rather a loud projection! 

Possibly the heaviest fragrance out of my choices for this Gift Guide, with the leather and woody notes blending together. Perhaps this may be better suited to wear towards the end of Summer with the cooler weather beginning to change. 

Horizon Extreme lasted for up to 7 hours upon my skin, and is available to purchase here.

MONT BLANC

LEGEND

Top Notes: Lavender, Bergamot, Lemon Verbena, Pineapple

Middle Notes: Coumarin, Oak Moss, Geranium, Rose, Red Apple, Dried Fruits

 

 

Base Notes: Sandalwood, Tonka Bean

 

A sweet and fruity fragrance from Mont Blanc, that opens with the bold Pineapple note than quickly dries down into a cleaner, and spicy scent.

Longevity of Legend was slightly disappointing, and only lasted for up to 4 hours upon my skin and the projection was light to medium. I would recommend wearing Legend throughout the day!

You can purchase Mont Blanc - Legend here.

BOTTEGA VENETA

POUR HOMME PARFUM

Top Notes: Calabrian Bergamot, Siberian Pine, Juniper

Middle Notes: Pimento, Canadian Fir, Clary Sage

Base Notes: Labdanum, Leather, Patchouli

Sophisticated, bold and classic. The opening begins with a refreshing citrusy feel that very quickly dries down into a woody, earthier type of scent. The Juniper and Siberian Pine notes blend perfectly together and add a real masculine touch!

The longevity of Pour Homme lasted for up to 6 hours upon my skin and I feel is definitely worth wearing during a night time as it could be a little overpowering throughout the day. (A little side note, if you like Tom Ford's discontinued Italian Cypress, then you may like this one...)

Pour Homme is available to purchase here.

JOOP - WOW!

Top Notes: Bergamot, Cardamom, Violet Leaf

Middle Notes: Geranium, Balsam Fir, Vetiver

Base Notes: Tonka Bean, Vanilla, Cashmere Wood

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of attending the Launch of JOOP - WOW! which you can read here for more details on the Event and the fragrance itself.

I have included it in this Gift Guide as it is a personal favourite of mine! A loud projection with a sweet opening that takes a creamier direction throughout the dry-down.

You can purchase WOW! here.
