Dolce & Gabbana Intenso edp review

Dolce & Gabbana Intenso edp fathers day gift ideas cologne

Pictured: c/o Dolce & Gabbana Intenso eau de parfum

Dolce & Gabbana Intenso edp is a warm, smoky floral scent which is masculine, inviting, and easy to wear during both warm, and cold weather. This is definitely a fragrance a man will reach for everyday, whether he prefers to wear after-shave, eau de parfum, or both combined.

Combining fragrance notes of Aquatic, Basil, Sandalwood, Lavender, and Moepel accord, Dolce & Gabbana Intenso edp offers a medium strength fragrance experience, which seems laced in light tobacco, that can easily be worn to the office, in tight quarters such as the theater, and for weekend casual activities. This is an all-around, wear anytime scent. Love that!

Although we tested out the eau de parfum, Dolce & Gabbana Intenso edp is also offered in an after-shave lotion, which my husband wants, an after-shave balm, deodorant stick, and a shower gel. There is also a gift set, online here, which is ideal as a Father’s Day gift, or graduation present. The gift set is also a great value since it is priced at $92.00 yet includes products from the collection with a combined worth of $115.00.

I love this fragrance on my husband, and fully understand why he also wants a bottle of the after-shave. It is a warm scent, which is masculine, and inviting. I definitely love smelling it on him! I am so glad he loves it too; it is always nice when you can agree on a fragrance!

Dolce & Gabbana Intenso edp can be found online here, here, herehere, and here. The after-shave can be found online here. The deodorant stick is online here. Intenso shower gel can be found online here.

I highly recommend the gift set! It has a sampling of the key items most men want in their daily fragrance. It is a great value, and a fabulous way to introduce Dad to Intenso. The gift set can be found online here, here, and here.

There is a gift with purchase when you spend $89 or more on any Intenso large spray online here as of today. This promotion could end at any time.

I hope you love this fragrance as much as my husband and I do! Happy Father’s Day!

Brooks Brothers is the ultimate go-to destination for the Dad who has traditional, preppy, and/or conservative style. If Dad wears suits to work, why not get him a fabulous tie!

He can remain in his suit, yet spice things up with a bow-tie. Love that!

Gucci Guilty pour homme after shave review

gucci guilty after shave fathers day gift idea

After-Shave c/o Gucci. Gucci Guilty pour homme after-shave.

Gucci Guilty pour homme after-shave is a classic scent from Gucci for men. The after-shave itself instantly calms the skin after an electric shave, or manual shave. In addition to calm skin, the fragrance experience is crisp, warm, and everything a man should smell like. Love that!

Top notes: zesty lemon, cool lavender, spicy pink pepper.

Middle notes: orange blossom

Base notes: patchouli, cedar, sandalwood, and amber

Gucci Guilty pour homme after-shave offers a warm citrus fragrance experience which ends the day with a warm, woody base. The light, spicy zing from pink pepper combines with lemon and orange blossom to create the ideal fragrance experience for moderate to warm weather. It is refreshing and warm; all at the same time!

I tested out Gucci Guilty pour homme after-shave on my husband. It calmed his skin after he shaved with an electric razor. The overall fragrance experience throughout the day was refreshing, crisp, warm, and inviting. Loved it!

Gucci Guilty pour homme after-shave will make a great gift for Father’s Day, or any upcoming, gift-giving occasion! Five out of five stars 😉

Gucci Guilty pour homme after-shave can be found online here.
