Dad’s come in all shapes and sizes with a variety of names and even, roles that they play in our lives. But one thing remains the same: they all deserve our recognition. Our grooming expert Adriana Ermter picked five fantastic scents to help you wrap up your Father’s Day gift giving with ease.
With his easy-going nature, this dad is happiest when everyone is laughing. Renowned for being the life of the party, he’s fun, funny and charming. Naturally, One Million’s enchanting blend of tart citrus, cool marine accord and spicy cardamom replete with warm tonka bean and sensual leather appeals to his senses. Plus, the addictive one-of-akkind scent comes in that fantastic gold bar-inspired bottle. It’s available for $68 for 75 ml and $92 for 125 ml at Shoppers Drug Mart and department stores across Canada.
Not only does this dad enjoy the salty spray of the ocean on his face, he’s up for any kind of sporty adventure so long as it includes the great outdoors. This fresh and aromatic aquatic eau opens with an energizing burst of grapefruit and spicy black pepper, before mingling with an uplifting ocean air accord. Aromatic fig leaf, cypress and juniper berry ease into the brand’s signature notes of warm driftwood, sensual musk, and magnetic amber. It’s available for $86 for 100 ml at the Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart and Sears stores across Canada.
Design duo, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana know how to capture Italian, island living in a bottle. Much like diving into the clear, crisp water of the Mediterranean, this aromatic eau is a fresh combination of sea salt accord with juicy grapefruit, invigorating mandarin and cool rosemary. Only when it dries down into a finale of sensual ambergris, dry woods and musky notes, does its intense masculinity seep through. It’s available for $77 for 75 ml and $99 for 100 ml at the Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora stores across Canada.
A hero in his family’s eyes, this dad has high energy, confidence and is more than a little OTT when it comes to sharing the love. And Ultra Zest is the perfect embodiment of it all. Vigorous, tangy notes of mandarin, blood orange and ginger make their presence known before mixing with bold and spicy coffee, black pepper and cinnamon. A smooth blend of vanilla, tonka bean and patchouli round out the cologne. It’s available for $99 for 100 ml exclusively at the Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.
Not only does this dad command attention at the office, he’s a true leader at home. And since he’s been there done that, this eau’s intriguing combination of elegance with mystery hits the perfect mark. Smoke and wood with dark coffee and rich giandula cream introduce the scent before releasing a spicy compilation of musky white leather, majestic cedar and zesty bergamot. It’s available for $98 for 100 ml at Holt Renfrew and at the Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.
