It’s been an odd few months hasn’t it? With next to no shops currently open for obvious reasons you may be at a loss as what to purchase a loved one for Father’s Day? I know the category of fragrance isn’t exactly groundbreaking but you could use the upcoming event to dip into some lesser known yet wonderfully constructed fragrance brands.
This beautiful, affordable (just £15.99 for a huge 100ml bottle), Italian brand is a glorious blend of substance and style, the beautiful boxes (and scents), complete with inner gift card, make gifting a breeze and with seven fragrances to chose from, there should be something for everyone.
My picks for Father’s Day are: Notebook Fragrances Patcholi & Cedarwood Eau de Toilette for Him; deep, musky, woody and aromatic – it is sophisticated without being overpowering nor stuffy and should appeal to most wearers of gentleman’s fragrance. For something a little more aquatic and dare I say lighter, I would recommend Notebook Fragrances White Wood & Vetiver, it is fresh, cooling and a little sporty – perfect for the warmer weather or perhaps more casual endeavours.
As a side note, I am going to invest in a few of the female aimed scents within the Notebook Fragrance line and will report back. You can shop all seven Notebook Fragrance Eau de Toilette – here £15.99/100ml – link.
If you have yet to experience any of the Banana Republic Eau de Parfum’s you are truly missing out; well priced, luxurious, oddly readily available in retailers such as Superdrug and yet the packaging hints at something far more up scale than your local pharmacist!
As this is a Father’s Day article, I thought I’d mention a brilliantly unisex and ultimately easy fragrance by the brand – Banana Republic Neroli Woods Eau de Parfum. Again this is fresh and carefree, with notes of Neroli and Orange Blossom; it has a certain Tom Ford quality thanks to the addition of Neroli but without the hefty price tag (currently just £25).
Once upon a time, we associated Yardley with lavender and perhaps our grandmothers? Well the brand has shaken off it’s once stuff image and now offers a whole array of products for every taste and budget. Over the last few years I have found myself growing quite fond of a few of their fragrances and have found a wonderful one for Father’s Day in Yardley Gentleman Urbane Eau de Parfume.
With notes of bergamot, lavender, thyme, tarragon, sandalwood, patchouli and musk this is the most aromatic and dare I say complex scent within my run down. It is modern yet classic and should appeal to men of all ages, it is a rare scent in which it is perfect for work and play.
