Top 10 Perfumes to Gift Your Dad

Updated on February 18, 2015

Top 10 Perfumes Your Dad Will Love!

Perfumes are always a classic way of expressing your wishes to someone. Be it birthday, anniversary or any occasion, fragrances always make a special right gift. While buying some fragrance the main thing to keep in mind is to select something that suits the personality of the person well. If you're gifting scents to some lady who has a knack for sports and outdoors, buy a refreshing, and energizing sporty fragrance -something that has a high note of citrus.

Finding the right perfume or cologne for a man is equally tricky. But the key is to know the man quite well before buying anything -you can't always be right with your guess.

Here is my list of best perfumes that can be gifted to your dad. Although these can be gifted to any man but this list mainly focuses on some sober fragrances -ones that suit the personality of a 'Father'. Father's Day is just approaching, so you better get one your dad for this great day, although you can buy him for his birthday too.

#1: Burberry Classic for Men

It's great cologne with a smell great enough to be liked by any father. Containing the rich notes of nicely blended mint, lavender, sandalwood, cedar and amber, the eau de toilette makes a good fragrance to be worn just anywhere. The richness is not overpowering and it can be worn on daily basis.

#2: Nautica Voyage for Men

This cologne is just perfect since it is not overwhelming. Being very light and quite sweet to smell, it is for a dad that likes sweet mellow fragrances. The smell is quite refreshing but not on the musky undertone. Great to be worn on daily basis -almost everywhere.

#3: Addidas Deep Energy for Men

As the name says it all -it's for an energetic father! High on bergamot and mandarin notes, the scent is laden with middle notes of cardamom and green apple. Smells great and is quite rich and strong, with some base notes of wood and musk. Not every dad will love it but still makes a perfect choice for an outdoorsy father.

#4: John Varvatos Vintage for Men

This yet another great cologne smells of burnt cinnamon that turns on everyone! If your dad is a lively person he'll surely love it. A bit spicy one with a soft note of wood and musk, the scent can be called 'sweet & spicy' and makes a great gift if your father likes spicy scents.

#5: Kenneth Cole Black for Men

This scent has a quite trendy and distinctive smell that makes it a nice perfume for contemporary dads. Like JV Vintage it has a spicy smell but on a strong side which makes it a great scent to be worn on special occasions. Again a great gift for a dad who likes spicy scents.

#6: Ferrari Black for Men

High on musky note, this eau de toilette fades into a very sweet and soft fragrance. Although it smells a bit sweet in the base note yet the scent is quite masculine and kicking. If your dad loves strong musky scents, it is a great choice.

#7: Juicy Couture Dirty English for Men

This nice scent is quite rich with woody, organic smell. Being high on cypress, mandarin, bergamot, sandalwood notes, this fragrance is great gift for an adventurous yet home-loving father. The musky scent is quite warm with base notes of amber, cedar and black moss.

#8: Bvlgari Pour Homme

This yet another nice perfume is a blend of woods and spices with low notes of lavender. It's quite soft and sweet, making a perfect gift for a loving father. The smell is quite musky and warm but never overpowering. Best to be worn casually.

#9: Realm by Erox for Men

This cologne may not be great for a typical father but makes a great perfume for a sober dad. The smell is quite manly -neither too much sweet nor a rich one. It contains 'pheromones' that are known to attract others; so makes a nice present for a father who has a high-profile social life.

#10: PS Fine by Paul Sebastian for Men

This good old cologne is quite popular among some circles of men who have been using it for many years. If your dad is not one of them, you can make him join them. High on spicy notes, the cologne blends nicely into the sweet base notes of citrus, soft wood and musk. Great cologne to be worn in the evenings.

Have something to say? - What's your favorite fragrance as a man/for a man?
