The perfect fathers day gift – aftershave

Is your other half celebrating a summer birthday or are you planning ahead for Father’s Day? Are you celebrating a special occasion together or do you just want to surprise him with an ‘I love you’ gift? What better than a stylish new bottle of aftershave?

 The perfect summer aftershaves are light, fresh, citrusy and fruity and are ideal for warm, sunny days. A fresh, clean fragrance is perfect for the office, time on the golf course or squash court and of course a romantic evening for two! There are some great new aftershaves on the market and they all make a very acceptable gift that can be enjoyed every day.

 To ensure that your chosen new fragrance continues to smell great, suggest that he keeps the bottle in its original box and somewhere cool and dark like a wardrobe – bathrooms are far from ideal and standing the bottle in sunlight will quickly make its precious contents evaporate!

 So, why not plan a shopping trip with plenty of time to enjoy choosing a lovely new aftershave that your partner can wear as his new signature fragrance over the next few months or enjoy wearing when the fragrance suits his mood perfectly?

There are so many exciting male fragrances on the market at the moment:
