If there’s one gift category that dads will surely appreciate, it’s a good bottle (or two) of the latest perfumes to try. While most men don’t think they need it and won’t buy these fragrances for themselves, trust that the wives or even the children will gladly pick the best ones for one of the most wonderful and hardworking people on the earth.

Acca Kappa
Don’t be fooled by the star of Acca Kappa Giallo Elicriso Eau de Parum. Even if it’s inspired from the scent of yellow helichrysum under the sunflower family, this particular scent, when combined with diamond cedar, violet leaves, white pepper, nutmeg, cedarwood, and vetiver makes for a sensual scent. A whiff of this will transport you to the Eastern Adriatic Sea.

Who doesn’t love relaxing mint scents? Well, L’Occitane does it again with its Cedrat Eau de Toilette. Infused with an masculine mix of citrus and woods, the icy notes make this a soothing and relaxing one for the wearer and those around him.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian
A unisex perfume that can justify the price point, since everyone in the house can use it, too! Not to mention, your dad will be touched that you chose such an in-demand scent for him—Maison Francis Kurkdjian Universalis. Made with citrus notes such as bergamot and citron, it is mixed with subtle floral scents such as roses, mock orange, and sweet peas. White musk adds a touch of musky wood into this concoction.

Calvin Klein
An oriental fragrance that has the rich notes of amber and leather, Calvin Klein Eternity Flame for Men adds a twist to this warm scent with its fruity notes of pineapple and refreshing scent of rosemary. A masculine scent that gives off a casually sensual vibe.

Jo Malone
Is your dad a plantito? Then he will love Jo Malone Cypress & Grapevine. This cologne intense will bring him to the ancient Hanging Gardens where the aromatic scents of everything you can smell in the garden is encapsulated in this bottle. Imagine the fresh green scent of cypress trees mixed with wood grapevines, it’s definitely an intense combination that will soothe the senses.
