We’re adults, so why do we still care what our parents think of our choices?

  • For the traditional dad...

    If your dad is a bit of a traditionalist, then he’ll love BOSS Bottled Eau de Toilette from Hugo Boss.

    Sandalwood, vetiver and cedar are classic masculine bass notes, while the citrusy top notes make for a refreshing twist on a winning formula.

  • For the cool dad...

    You’re shopping for a man who likes to keep his finger on the sartorial pulse, and Tom Ford is just the right level of cool – a designer your dad will probably have heard of, while still feeling suitably cutting edge.

    Ombré Leather Eau de Parfum smells pleasingly floral, with more earthy notes of leather to balance things out.

  • For the outdoorsy dad...

    Dior’s Sauvage Eau de Toilette claims to be inspired by wide open spaces, making it the perfect match for outdoorsy dads, even if their domain is more back garden than desert wilderness.

    Citrusy and peppery, with some rough herbaceous notes for good measure, it’s an airy, modern-smelling fragrance that’s reminiscent of a trip into the great outdoors.

  • For the adventurous dad...

    Does your dad fancy himself as a bit of an adventurer? The kind of dad who corralled your family into hiking holidays in the lakes, when all you wanted was a lovely Spanish beach?

    If the answer is yes, then he’ll probably love Montblanc Explorer Eau de Parfum, a woody/aromatic/leather fragrance fit for the hardiest of swashbucklers.

  • For the sporty dad...

    If your dad is spending most of June glued to the EUROs on telly, then he’ll appreciate the input of megastar footballer Neymar into Diesel’s latest fragrance.

    Spirit Of The Brave Men’s Eau de Toilette is a fresh and playful scent, bursting with bergamot, elemi oil and tonka bean, and it comes in an extremely jazzy bottle. Bonus.
