Whether youre shopping for your husband, your dad, or your grandfather, there are a few options out there for the best Fathers Day cologne you could give him. Scents that combine fresh and spicy, sometimes with a bit of wood, are perfect due to their complexity.
- Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb: Spicebomb comes in an interesting bottle that looks like a grenade. Despite the name, it isnt as strong as its sister, Flowerbomb. Its weaker and has less projection, but its still a masterpiece that combines zesty bergamot and grapefruit with the spiciness of cinnamon, chili, and saffron. The bottom notes consist of tobacco, leather, and balsam fir for a strong, manly fragrance.
- Dolce & Gabbana The One for Men: This scent isnt so sexy that you couldnt give it to your dad or grandpa, but its also a suitable gift for your husband. Its a comforting scent, made up of basil (a note that isnt in too many fragrances), coriander, and grapefruit on top; cardamom, ginger, and orange blossom in the middle; and then settles down into tobacco, cedar wood, and ambergris, according to Ultas description of the notes. This ones warm, with medium projection, and lasts almost all day.
- Christian Dior Pour Homme: This is a mens cologne thats perfect for snuggling up with. The notes include lavender (relaxing!), sage, iris (which gives it a hint of powder), cocoa bean, leather, patchouli, vetiver, amber, and cardamom, according to the notes list on Sephora.
- Artisan John Varvatos Cologne: This is one of the best Fathers Day colognes not only because of the intensely complex scent, but because of its beautiful hand-woven rattan bottle. Its a mix of citrus fruits, like tangelo, Sicilian Clementine, and orange; spiciness, like three types of ginger and thyme; and a combination of amber, lavender, and jasmine.
