These three colognes have been vetted by my male testing team and have been declared perf for Dad’s Day:
LACOSTE Essential Collector’s Edition ($65) is fresh and modern. On application, it yields a burst of green, derived from the scent of tomato leaves. The dry-down is notes of citrus, fruit and water. At its heart is a masculine floral accord tempered with black pepper for spiciness.
Hugo Boss Pure Eau de Toilette ($50)was inspired by the idea of a man becoming one with water. The scent includes fizzy Mediterranean citrus with juicy fruit notes, fig water, and water accord. The heart of the fragrance is notes of lily and hyacinth with base notes of pure wood – massoia- for a woody, creamy scent for added masculinity.
Banana Republic Slate ($45) has a crisp scent, featuring a blend of glacier citrus water, silver sage,and ginger root. This one’s fresh and spicy with an innate coolness.
