You can still smell it, can’t you? Father’s Days of the past. The air thick with Brut and Old Spice.
To be fair though, really, what did we know as kids about choosing signature scents for the father figures in our lives? Nothing. Aside from the fact they were always smiling ear-to-ear (or gritting their teeth and bearing it) when dabbing on the stuff.
Today though, well, we’ve got no excuse, especially when it comes to the new dads in our lives -- our partners. This Father’s Day capture his essence with one of these 5 contemporary scents and fill the air with laughter, love, and, of course, great smelling memories.
