If there’s one fragrance you can’t go wrong with when shopping for a gift for Dad, it’s the Dior Sauvage.

The concentrated Elixir opens with fresh, spicy notes that are characteristic of Sauvage, intensifies with a “tailor-made” lavender essence, and then leaves a sillage of rich, woody accords.

This heady, masculine scent has remained a favourite for men since it first dropped.

Another best-loved fragrance for men in 2023 is the Bleu De Chanel Eau De Parfum, an aromatic-woody fragrance that’s inspired by “men who refuse to be bound to rules”.

We all know that Dad still lovingly abides by your mum’s rules, that’s not to say that he can’t dream a little. We’re kidding.

The Bleu De Chanel Eau De Parfum opens with top notes of lemon and grapefruit and unfurls with base notes of woody sandalwood and ambery cedar. It leaves a warm sillage that ups the ante on sophistication for every man.

This one’s for the dads who love the sun and the sea.
