What’s your dad’s scent style?

We’re going to share a secret about fathers that you likely haven’t heard before. While they may say that a gift on Father’s Day isn’t necessary, they secretly love to receive a little package with a heartfelt card. Dads are raised to be stoic and hard workers, but they also take great pride in their families and love their children and wife dearly. It’s wonderful there is a special day each year to recognize these remarkable men. And while many have gruff exteriors, don’t be fooled. They love the attention and the love of their family.

With this in mind, we’ve handpicked five different fragrance gift sets to suit a wide range of dads. What is consistent with each set is it offers really good value for the price. For slightly more than the cost of a single bottle of fragrance, you get an extra piece such as a travel spray or deo stick for free. And it comes in a beautiful gift box.

    I really enjoyed reading this article featuring scents for Father’s Day. I’m the one who picks out my husbands fragrance. Back in the day sons wore what their dad wore 😳 I broke that chain😊 My husband owns two out of five fragrances featured. My husband may have been born in Italy, but that’s where that ends 🤣😢. I will keep these fragrance choices in my back pocket for the next time.
