Some last minute gift ideas for Father’s Day and three tried, tested picks that make for a luxurious treat for any skincare & perfume lover!
Cartier Declaration Eau de Toilette Limited Edition ($136; bloomingdales.com) - A new edition for Father’s Day that comes in Limited Edition packaging. The fragrance is the classic Declaration by Cartier, with notes of Bergamot, Bitter Orange, Cardamom and Cedar wood. I would classify the scent as unisex, though intended mostly for men. The Cardamom keeps it from being too musky and the bitter orange adds a zesty touch.
L’Occitane Cedrat Collection - Two products were sent to me from the new range and both absolutely loved by my husband - the After Shave Cream Gel ($34; usa.loccitane.com) and the Stick Deodorant ($18; usa.loccitane.com), which is alcohol-free. Cedrat is very fresh, the citrus notes toned down by the Ginger and the Cedarwood base. Very masculine with just the right amount of spicy notes added to the mix.
Penhaligon’s Juniper Sling Eau de Toilette ($150 for 100ml; penhaligons.com) - One fabulous fragrance that I’ve loved it on myself personally. It is quite pricey, but the fragrance is just as beautiful as the packaging. Very aromatic, zesty and deliciously fresh and intoxicating, inspired by London Dry Gin. The notes that stand out the most are Orange, Vetiver and Pepper in a Amber-y base. Amazing longevity too!
