A scent for every dad


Givenchy Gentlemen Only Parisian Break


Givenchy Gentlemen Only Parisian Break is the fragrance of joyful, carefree escapades, the fragrance of a day off.


The natural radiance of petitgrain lemon blends with the purity of Nepalese mint to create a citrusy freshness. A charming smile unfolds at the heart of aromatic, bursting notes of sage. A woody addiction begins to form.


Vetiver’s noble elegance embraces an amber effect, which infuses the fragrance with sensuality.

For the man who is always up and about, who loves sports and outdoor activities, choose a fresh scent that will energize him through his active lifestyle.


The new Eau de Lacoste L.12.12 Energized captures the essence of the beautiful emotions that sports stirs in those who live for the game: the pride of cheering for a team and the joy of belonging wholeheartedly to a nation.


Hugo Extreme


Hugo Extreme is the new intensely uplifting and invigorating counterpart to its iconic and original Hugo Man fragrance. If dad loves Hugo Man, this is definitely the perfect choice for him.



Boss Bottled Unlimited

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue pour Homme


Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue pour Homme is made for the more sensual and modern man who likes to take care of himself, enhancing his healthy body with sports. There is an understated blend of American musk wood, incense and oak moss that together gently establish this signature, sensual scent and finished off with an air of innate sexiness.


Wildblue by Banana Republic


Wildblue by Banana Republic is for the more outdoorsy and rough-around-the-edges dad who, like a gentleman, takes life in paces, leaps and bounds to achieve success, overcome challenges and enjoy the adventures that each day brings. The leather-rope-wrapped bottle strikes a handsome and masculine touch.

Modern Man by Banana Republic

Modern Man by Banana Republic is inspired by a new generation of modern masculinity. This scent offers a cool and spicy aromatic synergy, a clean, modern, aromatic, sensual musk reflecting the multi-faceted aspect of the man. Perfect for today’s cool, sophisticated and easy-going modern-day adventurer.


ICON by Dunhill

For the man who exudes elegance, a wise and sophisticated traveler, values culture and take fashion seriously, choose an audacious and stylish scent that embodies the perfect union of strength and sensitivity. A top choice would be ICON by Dunhill, an exotic and distinctive scent, as it opens with the ultimate blend of rare and expensive ingredients to add a unique twist of masculinity and originality.

Eau De Lacoste L.12.12 Noir

The new Eau De Lacoste L.12.12 Noir is for the dad who is multifaceted, and transcends work and leisure with ease and poise. Intense and masculine but also refreshing, the new fragrance offers essences of the transition between day and night, light and darkness.


Gucci Made to Measure

For the man who demands the very best in everything, suave as he is worldly with an outfit uniquely tailored to his physique, his scent must be tailored to his personality as well. For him, there’s Gucci Made to Measure, a scent that is crafted with the Gucci philosophy of attention to detail.


Jade Dragon by Shanghai Tang

This is a scent that conjures the spirit of adventure through a sensory journey from the East to the West. The sophisticated dad will love the freshness of Vetiver accented by juicy bergamot, bright tea leaves and lush Jasmine creating an earthy masculine scent.


Each bottle comes with the blessing of good health from Shanghai Tang Silk Road Fragrance Collection.

Crafted with the same artistry and qualities that describe Philippe Charriol’s approach to life, this scent unveils a refined, intense, and sensual signature, citrusy aromatic freshness with a fervent and spicy core that lingers with a particularly woody base.


Mandarin Tea by Shanghai Tang

Another classic choice for the dad who appreciates exquisite craftsmanship and luxurious materials is the Mandarin Tea by Shanghai Tang.
