If you are reading this, then that means it is that time of the month again, the day to celebrate all fathers: Father’s Day! At this time, the chances are that individuals will be scouring shopping centres and online shops to find the perfect gift to give the father figures in their lives.
Among the most common gifts to give to Dad this Father’s Day is cologne. While it might be something traditional, you can still make your gift unique and new by taking the time to pick one that reflects the recipient’s unique personality and style.
To help you in your search for the perfume that best represents Dad, here are some questions to ask yourself when finding the best scents that appeal to men;
1. What fragrance are they using at the moment?
Knowing the fragrance that your dad or husband is currently using is one of the best discreet ways to understand their preferred type of scent. If they are often using a particular scent, then the chances are that it is the type of fragrance they are drawn to for themselves.
There are many ways to go about learning their favourite scent. A way to do so is by finding out the dominant fragrance in their grooming products, such as shower gel and body lotion. From there, you can begin your search for perfumes with similar notes.
2. Are you looking to play it safe or be more adventurous?
One of the first few steps to buying cologne before anything else is to decide whether you are seeking a mass-marketed fragrance or one that is one-of-a-kind. While choosing a more common fragrance may be the safest way to go about it, you risk them smelling like other men.
Hence, if you would like your father or husband to have a scent that is unique to them, it would be the best time to make your own fragrance that fits their personality or style. Not only would it be a sweet gesture on your part, but it also makes for a distinct scent that they are sure to appreciate!
3. Will the scent suit the recipient?
Suppose you would like to forego the usual and instead give them something new but are unsure of what to get. In that case, you can base your choice on their personality and style. Their clothes, hairstyle, hobbies, and demeanour will tell whether they are fun-loving, easy and practical, refined and sophisticated, independent and unconstrained, athletic, accommodating, adjusting, or others. You can then base your selection based on the information you gather. That way, you are bound to know that the perfume you buy for them will suit them well.
4. Would you prefer for them to choose their own perfume?
To play it safe and ensure that they will love your gift, you may consider letting them choose the scent they prefer. By allowing them to make their own choice, you can guarantee that they will make full use of the cologne. Here at Perfume Workshop, we provide a perfume personality test for men (and women, too!) before you make your own perfume. This way, you can have peace of mind knowing that the recipient chooses one that they will actually like and use often.
Whether you are looking to get a Father’s Day gift for your father or husband, the key to picking out the ultimate present is to think about their personal style, taste, preferences, and the like. Doing so will help you narrow down your options and find the perfect present.
