For the sensual dad: try Ralph Lauren's limited edition Big Pony coffret with 4 different pony scents so he can be 1. sporty (lime and oak notes) , 2. seductive (chocolate and musk), 3. adventurous (mint and Ginger), and 4. stylish (pink grapefruit and kyara wood) - A$75  or
Armani Sports Code for the dad wanting to improve his art of seduction with notes of minty citrus, amber, ginger and cool woody velvetier  - 30ml A$84

What will you be getting for your dad this Father's Day?
Mine is getting a dinner and skincare as he is so vain!

*Father's day is celebrated in June in the northern hemisphere but in September for Australia and New Zealand


  1. Probs skincare stuff, he neglects his skin, especially his hands :( I usually have so much trouble finding him a present though, cos he's too pratical a guy >.> Awesome post :)

  2. Thank you Michelle :)

    My dad's got very rough hands and feet too. I give him stuff to use but he hates greasy items and is so picky with scent - they have to smell awesome or he won't use it.

    The thing is, he has skin allergies so scent can irritate his skin... but he just can't have scentless product - he's such a weirdo I Know.

  3. The dad in my household is getting Bleu de Chanel, coz it is his birthday weekend as well :) My dad will be getting something delivered to him as he lives overseas. It is so hard to choose for men in our lives. Great suggestions :)
