Sit back, relax, and take a look through our Father’s Day Gift Guide, where we have gifts to suit all tastes and budgets.
Tom Ford Private Blend Lavender Extrême Eau de Parfum
If dad loves his fragrance sophisticated, he’ll love the new Tom Ford Private Blend Lavender Extrême EDP. Two distinct lavenders from France mingle from the start of this aromatic Oriental Masterpiece – one pulses with adrenaline, while the character of the second develops amber-like facets. At the heart, of the scent, freshness continues with carrot seed oil, and a third type of lavender, Lavender Absolue France, which pushes up the balsamic core with green undertones. To finish, Lavender Extrême features an Oriental dimension, building on the warm glow of wild-grown tonka bean and the creamy wood effect of benzoin, sourced in Laos, for a final dose of charismatic audacity that’s excessively luxurious. Eau De Parfum 50ml RRP $460.00
Paco Rabanne Invictus Legend
The latest fragrance in the Paco Rabanne Invictus family is a sure fire winner. Retaining the same sensual keys, and signature ingredients of laurel, grapefruit, and guaiac wood as the original, warm powerful woods create a woody-spicy scent with fiery intensity. Don’t let the coolness of the blue shaded trophy bottle fool you – think of a burning hot breeze as you leave the coolness of water to tread on hot sand! Invictus Legend EDP 50ml RRP $109.00. Also available in 100ml (pictured).
Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Night Vision
A welcome addition to the popular Viktor & Rolf Family, Spicebomb Night Vision is a sensual Fougère Woody fragrance that is as fresh as it is explosive. As if bathed in the green light that denotes night vision technology, the green cardamom, green mandarin essences and a Granny Smith accord lift the edgy black chili accord and the dark virility evoked by black pepper, clove and nutmeg essences in the scent. Roasted almond transforms the darkness, warming the scent into its addictive side with tonka bean absolute and woody notes. Eau de Toilette 50ml RRP $89.00. Also available in 100ml.
