    Father’s Day Gift Idea: Kiehl’s Limited Edition Dopp Kit

    I spend so much time pampering myself, I sometimes forget the men in our lives deserve some pampering from time to time, too. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for your father, husband or boyfriend this Father’s Day, you may want to check this gift pack out.

    Scott Schuman, blogger and photographer extraordinaire, and Kiehl’s have come up with the Sartorialist for Kiehl’s Limited Edition Dopp Kit for Men ($87.50). In a stylish zippered bag, your favourite Dad will receive: Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash, Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment, Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm, Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream – White Eagle and the “Ultimate Man” Scrub Soap.

    This gift is perfect for the traveling dad or just the man in your life whom you wish to spoil. It is currently available at Holt Renfrew only.

    Happy early Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there (especially mine)!

    New Diesel Fragrance for Men

    Due to a special request, I am going to make more of an effort to share some of the best men’s products with you, too.  If you’re looking for the perfect fragrance for your beau or yourself (guys read beauty blogs, too!), I highly recommend Fuel For Life Denim ($73), the new limited edition fragrance from Diesel, slated to hit stores in August.

    I am in love with this scent. My guy doesn’t particularly enjoy wearing any kind of fragrance but I still try pushing this one on him constantly because it smells amazing. All I can say is that the smell makes me think of a really sexy man, like Jake Gyllenhaal or Bradley Cooper (who I bumped into on Peel St. in Montreal yesterday afternoon! Best. Day. Ever!).

    This fragrance will be available exclusively at the Bay, Sears, Pharmaprix / Shopper’s Drug Mart, Jean Coutu and London Drugs. And not to worry ladies, there will also be a limited edition Diesel Fuel For Life for Women ($85). Keep your eyes peeled for these new scents on shelves soon and snag ‘em ASAP because they’ll only be here for a short time.

    New Prada Fragrances for Men and Women This Spring

    I’m really early with this blog post, but I want to make sure I give you all a head start. If you’re looking for a new fragrance for your man, look no further than Prada‘s newest fragrance: Amber Pour Homme Intense ($90) which will be hitting Pharmaprix / Shopper’s Drug Mart and Murale April 15.

    This newest addition to the Prada Amber fragrance family is a limited edition product so you definitely don’t want to get your hands on it fast. When I received this bottle and smelled the aroma, I pictured in my head the manliest of men. The patchouli and vanilla fragrance is light and soft but it has that sexy scent I love on a man. It has a slightly spicy scent to it, too so it’s definitely for the adventurous man in your life.

    Prada released new fragrances for spring 2010 and they were fabulous. This year is no different. The fashion house is well known for their iconic designs and their fragrance collection upholds the same elite standards and flawless reputation.

    Ladies, don’t worry. There’s a fragrance for us, too. Infusion de Rose ($120) is a sweet scent made of up of the aromas of beeswax, peppermint, mandarin and rose. It’s a delicate scent made for the effortlessly chic, sophisticated and utterly elegant femme fatale. Like Amber Pour Homme Intense, Infusion de Rose only hits shelves April 15. If a statement-making fragrance is what you’re after, you’ll definitely think it’s worth the wait.

    Speaking of fragrances, I’m curious. Are you loyal to one specific scent or do you play the field? I have to admit…I’m a disloyal fragrance fiend. I wear a different one everyday and am now up to 11 scents in my rotation! How about you?

    New Fragrance: BANG by Marc Jacobs

    I’ve got another one for the boys today! This month, the talented and infamous designer Marc Jacobs is releasing his latest men’s fragrance: BANG. The spicy, woody aroma of this new fragrance is definitely a lady-magnet. It smells super masculine and just gives off a strong yet very sensual vibe.

    Guys, believe me. This is a fragrance the ladies will love on you! Ladies, you’ll want to get this scent as a gift for your man. It’s one of the best men’s fragrances I’ve smelled all year. The Eau de Toilette Spray ($69) will be available at Holt Renfrew, Shopper’s Drug Mart / Pharmaprix and The Bay starting this month and for a limited time, with the purchase of the 100ml bottle ($95), you’ll receive a free Marc Jacobs tuque. It’s a fashionable grey hat with Marc Jacobs written on the front in black lettering. (It’s very trendy.)

    I’m positive this fragrance is going to be the biggest hit of the year in terms of men’s products. Marc Jacobs has a knack for releasing only the trendiest of items so it’s no wonder this fragrance is a soon-to-be-classic.

    A Few More Last-Minute Father’s Day Gift Ideas

    Just in case some of you are as last-minute as I am, I thought you might be looking for a couple more gift ideas for Dad. (FYI, Father’s Day is this coming Sunday, in case you didn’t already know.)

    I really like these LUSH Solid Shampoos ($9.95). I think it’s such a great idea. The shampoo bars are solid products that are easy for the man on-the-go to carry around with him. If your Dad (or even your boyfriend) is a traveller and loves convenience (as everyone does) then this is the ideal budget buy. Plus, it’s a great gym bag essential. They come in a variety of fragrances and last for up to 70 washes!

    Next up is a gift set from Kiehl’s. I don’t think I need to tell you why Kiehl’s is fabulous. If you’ve ever tried one of their products, you know they’re nourishing and long-lasting. This ensemble is a great gift idea for Dad this Father’s Day. It comes with Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash 75ml ($11.00), Facial Fuel 75ml ($30.00), Ultimate Brushless Shave Cream – White Eagle 75ml ($12.50) and “Ultimate Man” Body Scrub Soap ($17.00). A man who like to care for his skin but doesn’t necessarily have the time or is always on-the-go will truly appreciate this gift.

    Now hurry up! You only have a few days left to shop.

    Father’s Day Gift Ideas

    Don’t let them fool you. Men value their appearance just as much as women do. No, men may not care for looking pretty, but they certainly want to look clean and smell good. Here are a few beauty-inspired gift ideas for your Dad this coming Father’s Day. (Plus, these gift ideas work well for your boyfriends, too so tuck these ideas away and save them for birthdays, anniversaries and holidays!)

    Halston Man

    This elegant and masculine fragrance is ideal for the man who is energetic, bold and sophisticated. This fresh and woody fragrance is the perfect scent for Dad. It’s also a really versatile scent. It’s got a sophisticated aroma to it but it’s also young and fresh. You can purchase Halston Man for the Dad in your life only at The Bay. The 75mL bottle retails for $65 and the 125mL bottle retails for $90.

    Dr. Hauschka’s Father’s Day Skin Care Kit

    This is the ultimate man kit and the best part is that it’s budget-friendly. The Dr. Hauschka kit contains cleansing milk and cleansing cream, facial toner or clarifying toner and Quince day cream. These products are great for soothing razor burn (ouch!) and removing ingrown hairs caused by shaving. It’s just as important for men to hydrate their skin as it is for women. Dry, irritated skin is itchy and uncomfortable and it can lead to premature aging, as well. The kit for normal skin retails for $26.75 and the kit for oily skin retails for $28.75. Packed with essential oils and sold at such a friendly price, it’s hard to resist.

    Nivea For Men Cool Kick

    One of my favourite skin care lines, Nivea, is a great product line for men, too. Nivea’s Cool Kick skin care products (moisturizer, shaving cream, aftershave balm and 2-in-1 hair and body wash) would make a great gift. Get creative and place all four of these products together in a gift basket. They range in price from $4.99 to $8.99 and can be found at your local pharmacy. Plus, Nivea is one of the most popular men’s skin care lines on the market so Dad or any other man in your life is sure to love this gift.

    Happy Father’s day to all the Dads and Dads-to-be out there. Enjoy your day next Sunday, June 20.
