Father's Day is Sunday, June 17 — if you need to shop, time to get going…
In the event that your Dad deserves the very best (and you're willing to pay for it), here is the Acqua di Parma Colonia Edizione Murano: “Acqua di Parma uses its signature fragrance to pay tribute to Murano glass, a prime example of Italian craftsmanship and tradition. Each beautiful coffret contains a completely unique 200 ml Murano glass bottle, a 180 ml bottle of classic Colonia and a funnel with which you can decant your fragrance.” £490.00 at Harrods, also available at senteursdailleurs & first-in-fragrance.
Not enough cash for the Colonia Edizione Murano? Try the more reasonably priced body gel cleansers from Anthony for Men: “Two-in-one gel cleanser that combines natural botanical and conditioning agents to moisture and soften skin while it cleanses. Exfoliates surface skin, an exceptional body wash for daily use.” $16.00 for 237 ml, and available in citrus, coriander, spice or eucalyptus at Luilei.
From Caswell-Massey, the Presidential Soap collection, including “three bath soaps (5.8 oz.), triple-milled for lasting performance and fragrance: Number Six, Washington's favorite; Almond Cold Cream, selected by Eisenhower; and Jockey Club, the choice of JFK. A five-star gift.” $24, and if you can add a few more items to your cart, you can get free shipping with coupon code FDFS (good through 6/3 on orders of $65 or more).
Dad need help relaxing? Here is a gift box of Cedre incense from Esteban, including 45 sticks and a ceramic incense holder: “an experience for the senses and the soul….It makes a perfect companion at home, when traveling or as a gift. It helps create a more serene atmosphere and its fragrance links us more intimately with nature. Top notes lemon, cedarwood, clove, vetiver.” $24 at Gifts That Make Scents.
From Czech & Speake, 100 ml of Cologne Spray in No. 88: “Based on an original Elizabethan recipe, but still definitively modern, this masculine fragrance contains specially selected natural oils of Sandalwood and Bergamot that give it a rich, woody aroma. A variety of middle notes, Geranium, Rose Otto, Cassie & Frangipanni bring out fresh, sharp flavours that make this scent stand alone”. $162.00 at Apothia. (And if Dad doesn't like it, you can send it to me.)
