Thread: Fragrance for my father
My father is 64. Want to get him a good fragrance. What would be a good one for his age?
I was thinking about Green Irish Tweed.
Bois Du Portugal
Boucheron pour Homme
Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree
Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme
Luca made some very good suggestions. I agree with him all the way/
Monsieur de Givenchy (preferably the vintage).
Current Top Favorites:
1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
4) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie
6) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - tie
Green Irish Tweed would be perfect.
Geranium pour Monsieur.
I'm about your dad's age and I like Le Labo Rose 31 and Bois 1920 Real Patchouly a lot.
Givenchy Vetyver and Chanel Egoiste would also be really nice as would L'Occitane Eau des Baux or Guerlain Heritage.

I would also suggest Diptique 34 Boulevard Saint Germain or Tam Dao.
Thanks. You all have given me many choices.
Oh yea, forgot about Egoiste. Get that one.
Chanel Cuir de Russie.
Looking for THE femme fatale scent. If you think there is something I should smell please PM me!
Vetiver by Creed was launched 64 years ago. While that's not so easy to find, Original Vetiver is.

Find out his taste in fragrance. I had a similar list of what I thought I should get for my father and much later during a sampling session with him I found out that he loved Chanel No. 5 and disliked most of the others I thought a person of his age will like. One of his favourite notes was that of the lily and he seems to like aldehydes. IMO, try and get to know his taste in fragrance and then get him something.

Apart from GIT, maybe also:
Eau Sauvage EDT
Chanel pour Monsieur EDT
YSL por Homme EDT (1971)
He's a real simple country man. He still works too. I'm wanting to get him something for work and something he can wear to a restaurant. I haven't smelled most of these, so I may go with GIT. I think he will like it.

Tiffany for Men would be a nice option too.
