He answers to Dad, Papa, Big D, the Main Man and sometimes even, Sir. No matter what you call yours, make sure that when you do, you say his name with love.

To get you started, our grooming expert Adriana Ermter has picked three fantastic scents to help you call out your father on his special day

Calvin Klein, CK One Summer EDT
This unisex scent is one part ocean waves, another part desert sand. Fresh and tart cucumber, lime and citron notes open the eau, then intertwine with a fiery hot pepper trio. Creamy musk and wood and sweet saffron give the scent its soothing finish. It’s available for $80 for 100 ml at the Hudson’s Bay and Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.

Dior Homme, Sport EDT
Woody and aromatic, this incarnation of the 2008 original is bursting with fruit, spice and botanicals. A mix of grapefruit, lemon and pear introduce the scent before heating it up with pink pepper, sharp geranium and sweet nutmeg. Green vetiver and warm sandalwood ground the eau, providing it with a chic and timeless quality. It’s available for $85 for 50 ml and $109 for 100 ml at the Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora stores across Canada.

Valentino, Uomo Acqua EDT
Signature to the brand’s Uomo line-up of scents, this latest version is as replete with intrigue and elegance as it is mystery. Italian garden favourites, mandarin, green tomato and citron open the eau, while herbal clary sage and spicy patchouli take centre stage before easing into sensual white leather and smoky iris. It’s available for $115 for 125 ml exclusively at Nordstrom stores across Canada.
