Father’s Day Gifts #NoTiesPlease

Author: Beth Cox May 29th, 2014


Are you guilty of presenting your dad with a shirt shaped present on Father’s Day? What about that pair of socks you know he’ll LOVE because, well, who wouldn’t love a pair of socks? Ladies and gentleman, it’s time to confess your Father’s Day sins and think outside of the box for this impending Father’s Day occasion.

Aside from treating him to his favourite bottle of fine wine, why not swap it for a bottle of cologne? Buying a fragrance for a loved one not only shows that you’ve put a lot of personal thought into your gift but it’s also a gift that’s going to create a lasting memory for your loved one. Read on to see our favourite picks for Father’s Day.



The newest fragrance release from the highly regarded Lacoste brand is LACOSTE L!VE; an energetic and impulsive scent designed for men. Paired with an impressive ad campaign and an even more impressive bottle (rubix cube, anyone?), LACOSTE L!VE is an exciting new fragrance release that is set to be summer’s hottest scent.

LACOSTE L!VE includes notes of fresh lime, green leaves and hints of the sea. Paired with the unusual ingredient of liquorice and guaiac wood, this urban fragrance is one to treat the effortlessly cool and stylish dads to (we know they exist somewhere!). Save £5.00 and also be in with the chance of winning 1 of 3 iPod Nanos when you purchase LACOSTE L!VE from Fragrance Direct. Simply add the promotion code LACOSTECOMP at the checkout.


Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Vulcano Pour Homme

An adaptation of the original D&G Light Blue fragrance, Light Blue Vulcano is Dolce & Gabbana’s new fragrance for men this Spring/Summer. A touch fresher than the original Light Blue fragrance, Vulcano Pour Homme is inspired by the remote and exotic island of Vulcano which is north of Sicily.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Vulcano features notes of Italian lemon and ginger which are fused with ingredients of cypress, lavender and warm spices. This is an ideal scent for the warmer months and would make an excellent companion for your dad’s summer holiday (maybe you’re feeling really generous and will treat him to that too?). Save £7.00 off this Dolce & Gabbana fragrance if you purchase it from Fragrance Direct now.


Gucci Guilty Pour Homme Stud Edition

If he loves Gucci Guilty, you really need to feast your eyes on Gucci Guilty Stud Edition Pour Homme. Housing the classic Gucci Guilty fragrance but with a much classier outfit. This fragrance will be a real treat to open on Father’s Day, if not for the seductive aroma then for the bottle which is adorned with more than 400 studs.

Housing an attractive scent inside, Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme Stud Edition features notes of lemon and lavender, blended with poignant drops of African orange flower and patchouli. Powerful and masculine, dad will more than thank you for this exciting addition to his fragrance collection. And what’s even better? Purchase this scent from Fragrance Direct and receive the free gift of Gucci Chime for Change headphones.
