Perfect Father's Day Gifts / How to Pick The Right Perfume


Maybe it's just me but I find buying for men to be very hard. No matter how many Father's Day gift ideas you look for, if you're shopping last minute it can be stressful. 
Whether it's your dad, your boyfriend or your best mate, when there's a birthday, Christmas or special day, I low-key panic trying to figure out what to buy. Sometimes you want to go beyond the DVD set and get something a little more personal but when you risk it, the result can either be a success or a failure. Scary thought, huh? I think it's just me being very panicky and stressing over the little things but I know there's other people out there who are the same. 

Perfumes are always a good shout, especially as a gift for dad, but how can you pick the right scent for someone? If it wasn't that I know my best friends really well now, I wouldn't even try to buy perfumes for them, let alone a male. Scents are very personal and with time, seasons and moods, people change and so does their taste sometimes. Well, there's a Fragrance Finder quiz that Fragrance Direct has created, to make it super easy to find that perfect fathers day gift for everyone. I gave it ago and today I'll go over with you the ones that matched my results. 


Boss Bottled Tonic* - a well known scent - is refreshing and not too intense. Described as an ideal scent for work and for everyday occasions. It contains notes of grapefruit, bitter orange, lemon and apple that provide zestiness at the top, with the spicy heart of ginger and cinnamon. The signature woody base of the fragrance line features a vetiver accord, described as dry, earthy and elegant.

Hugo Boss MAN* is an aromatic green fragrance. Probably my favourite one, it contains top notes of lavender, green apple, mint, grapefruit and basil; middle notes are carnation, sage, geranium and jasmine; base notes are patchouli, fir and cedar.

Gucci Guilty Absolute*  is the new edition of the masculine Gucci Guilty fragrance. The top notes include leather, which I found to be very interesting. The heat is made of patchouli and the base captures golden wood and vetiver. I love the look of the bottle as well. 

How do you shop for perfumes for important people in your life? And what did you get for your dad is Father's Day? 


I also want to take a short moment to tell the people who can't celebrate Fathers Day with their dad for one reason or another, I see you. You're all amazing and you've turned out great! Have a fabulous day!

  1. I think a perfume will definitely be a good gift for dads. If I were to pick a scent, I would choose Boss Bottled Tonic. As you've said, it's refreshing and not too intense; great for everyday occasions. It will be nice to know that your gift is used daily. He will surely remember your thoughtfulness everyday as he sprays the perfume.

  8. Every time my boyfriend's birthday comes around I'm filled with dread because he is one of the hardest people to buy for. Aftershave is such a good idea though; thanks for the recommendations - I'd have no idea where to start.
