Yes, Father’s Day is looming again, and that old chestnut of ‘What on earth can I buy him?’ We’ll have some ideas over the next couple of weeks to help you out, so to be going on with, we’ve found this deliciously manly scent from Roger & Gallet.
Now, at £32 (marksandspencer.com), this may not seem like a bargain. But we’ve compared it with the new launch from Jo Malone, Black Cedarwood and Juniper (jomalone.co.uk), which is £86 for the same 100ml bottle.
The Roger & Gallet scent comes with some history. It dates back to 1862 and is wonderfully fresh. With notes of bergamot, lemon, neroli and rosemary, it’s the kind of cologne you’d expect a refined gentleman to wear. It also looks more expensive than it is, and it lasts for hours. So in our book, that’s a definite bargain.
