    Default Xmas fragrance? ...

    Hey guys need help on a fragrance for my Dad. He is 50 yrs old but i want to find him something unique with an aquatic note that leaves a fresh aroma. Its not a common scent, but very mysterious and memorable. Something that suits him well and will get him noticed and smelling nice. He has Le Male already. Any good ones?

    Hugh Parsons Blue seems to tick the right boxes. Clean, elegant, understated, and relatively uncommon. He won't smell like everyone else and he'll smell darn good.

    L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme by Kenzo - Initially, one is treated to a biting and sparkling blast of yuzo, somewhere between a grapefruit and a mandarin orange, with its lemon-like tangy and floral aspects. This sharp and bright citrus slowly pairs with ho leaf, which tinges the pseudo-lemon with its spicy and sweet, floral and rosewood overtones, yielding an almost lemon, furniture polish accord, morphing the stark citrus into a luscious smoothness. The refreshing, watery middle beckons. Here, in the heart, the pseudo-lemon is immersed in a bath of lotus flower, with its lovely, water lily greenness with a hint of mint, sharp and fresh ozone notes, as well as refreshful aquatic notes, with its faint, marine and mint accord, and steeps into a soothing lemonade. Pleasant white musk usurps the cool blend into the awaiting base, imparting its sweet and floral facets, and its cohort, green pepper, adds a kiss of earthiness before meandering to the light and airy drydown. A wonderful fragrance to be turned to in the heat of the summer, this fresh and crisp composition is a vibrant, green, lemony and woody scent, and has average longevity and projection. In the sweaty dog days of the summer, you need this!
