True story: Every once in a while my mom calls to complain about my dad bogarting her perfumes. Seriously, pops, I love you, but wearing the scent of a woman? — not so hawt.
With Father’s Day right around the corner, I’ve been sniffing around for a new scent for dear old dad, and my nose has really been liking Gucci by Gucci Sport Pour Homme ($57 for a 1.6 oz bottle).
Inspired by the free spirit and power of the ocean, it’s the latest addition to Gucci’s family of fragrances for men, with notes of grapefruit, cardamom, fig nectar, and rich, woody patchouli. I think dad would like the scent, but I know he’d like the bottle, which feels hefty and solid in my hands.
I sprayed some on myself just for fun. Yup, it’s masculine, modern, not stuffy — a little like old school Cool Water but fresher with a citrusy edge. Guys who like scents that aren’t too spicy or heavy might dig this a lot.
BONUS: Team Gucci says Sport Pour Homme lingers longer on the body than other fragrances. To this I say, “Hallelujah!” Let’s give men all the help they can get, ha!
