Father’s Day is just over a week away, so it is time to get your thinking cap on and treat your dad to a present. Investing in a new signature scent is a popular gift idea but not as easy as it sounds, especially if you aren’t already au fait with male fragrances. To help you in your quest, Savoo has rounded up our top fragrances for Father’s Day for under £50- with some cheeky voucher codes included too.
Aligning itself with money, fast cars and girls, Paco Rabanne’s 1 Million is the ideal gift for an extrovert dad. With a strong spicy fragrance, 1 Million may not be for the faint hearted, but its luxurious gold bottle and masculine leather notes will ensure your dad gets noticed. And right now Fragrance Direct is offering 40% off all Paco Rabanne fragrances.
Dior Homme seems to create a ‘love it or hate it’ reaction, with a modern floral scent that will challenge your expectations of a traditional masculine fragrance. Incorporating the iris- a rare note in male perfume – Dior Homme is not a macho smell. Think elegant, slightly feminine and musky; if your dad is metrosexual and likes a soft long-lasting fragrance, this is the one to pick for Father’s Day. Order through the Fragrance Shop and get free delivery on orders over £40.
Ideal for the summer, Happy for Men by Clinique brings to mind evening walks in the sunshine and drinks on the terrace. Combining lime, mandarin orange and lemon to create a sweet and pulpy citrus smell, this fragrance is totally refreshing and light. A great buy for energetic dads with enthusiasm for life, you can get 15% off a Clinique Happy for Men gift set from Mankind.
If you haven’t heard of Yohji Homme it is definitely time to broaden your horizons. Understated and modest, this is a true gentleman’s scent with a blend of coffee notes, rum, cedarwood and leather. If you can picture your dad sat in a library by a roaring fire and sipping rum with a box of dark chocolates, Yohji Homme is perfect for his Father’s Day present.
We can’t lie to you; the eighties style Versace Eros bottle verges on ostentatious, but don’t judge a book by its cover. Taking inspiration from Eros the God of Love, Versace has created a scent that smells not only sophisticated but also masculine. Combining Italian lemon zest, mint leaves and green apple, the fragrance is intense and woody; plus if you buy from Boots you can get it at a great price.
Haven’t got a clue what fragrance would suit your dad? Portrait for Men by Paul Smith could be a failsafe choice; and at just £29.99 from Fragrance Direct it won’t hurt your wallet. Described as fresh and masculine but not heavy, Portrait for Men combines green tea, pink pepper and cedarwood for a refreshing scent (and some perfume aficionados say it smells exactly like the more expensive Gucci Pour Homme II!).
