    Default need some advice for my dad

    hello, my dads birthday is next week and he is turning 44. hes a real cool person though, acts like his 23 or something and pulls it off. on a budget of around 35 pounds, what do you think i should get him. here are what he has owned in the past.
    drakkar noir(his fav of all time)
    ck one
    aramis (he said he hated this)
    tommy hilfiger for men
    at the moment his current faves he owns are 212 sexy men and davidoff adventure. so based on his likes and stuff, what would you suggest? designer please.

    Based on what he has owned, and their style, I would suggest Cool Water.
    Based on what he likes right now, maybe something like L'homme by YSL. Don't pay too much attention to the reviews saying it's boring. Non-offensive, yes, but not boring.

    Based on him liking Adventure I would consider trying Dunhill Pursuit and Terre d'Hermes. I find these 3 all similar but quite different; Pursuits far more 'fresh' and has incense + orange, while Terre d'Hermes is much woodier & natural smelling.
    Looking for: Andy Tauer - L'air du Desert Morocain & Incense Extreme
