Happy Father’s Day

Pairfum London Happy Fathers Day Daughter Mandarin Blossom Sandalwood 1 1

Fathers (and Mothers) mean the world to us and we should tell them today. Yes, make a special effort to actually tell them today because it is too easy to take them for granted, as they are ever present in our lives.

Celebrate them today and remember the ones that have passed.

How are you going to show your Dad, how much he means to you? We would love to find out from you.

Here are two brief poems for Father’s Day you can use in your Happy Father’s Day card:

A short poem from son to father:

Dad you know that I like Batman,
And Superman’s cool too,
But I don’t really need them,
As long as I have you!

Another poem from daughter to father:

Congratulations Dad,
You’ve raised a child with flair!
You gave me looks and brains and modesty
All beyond compare!

Father’s Day: How Do You Find The Perfect Gift?

Pairfum London Happy Fathers Day Daughter Spiced Coffee Oaked Vanilla 1 1

We all love our fathers (and mothers). They dedicate their life to bringing us up, they love us unconditionally, they ensure that we are being cared for, they worry that we are happy, they help us on our path in life … and so much.

One of the first words we learn to say is the word for ‘FATHER’, no matter where we come from in the World but the word may differ slightly from place to place. It may be: Athair, Daidí , Daddy, Dad, Baba, Papa, Pappie, Ate, Poppa or Abbu, Abba, Faoire, Vater, Ayaa, Pai, Pa, Tad, Otec, Otosan, Babbo or Tad …

What name do you give your father?

However we write or say it, the meaning behind it is always the same: the one who Loves and Protects us unconditionally, one we trust and turn to for help and guidance.

On Father’s Day we have the opportunity to show them how much they mean to us and how grateful we are to them.

So, … how do you plan to say: “Thank You for Everything you do and have done for me.”

How do you find the Fathers Day Gift that is guaranteed not to disappoint?

We all know that Aftershave & Perfume are some of the most popular Father’s Day gifts but it is so easy to buy the wrong one, unless you buy the same as always.

Where is the surprise element in that, if you buy the same gift again, and again?

How do you show that you really care and thought about them?

Pairfum Collection Niche Perfume Experience Fragrance Library Square Gift Box Open Display

We have the perfect solution:

Buy 12 x perfumes instead of just one.

Let them discover & enjoy these exquisite perfumes in their own time and space, without having to go shopping.

Let them discover which perfumes they actually enjoy. Which ones get them noticed? After all, who doesn’t like Compliments?

Is your Father a Connoisseur? Does he enjoy good wines, craft beers, artisan cheeses, boutique chocolates, …? Is he the type of person that appreciates The Finer Things in Life?

If so, … then this Fragrance Library was designed with him in mind.

This is the ideal shopping experience for a man: no trailing from shop to shop, spending hours trying things out and then walking away with something you don’t really want.

In this Perfume Experience Box, they will discover a world of niche perfume that they would otherwise never come across, in stores or when somebody else chooses for them.

Who knows, your Father might become a Connoisseur of Perfume (maybe he already is).

Are You Craving a Good Night’s Sleep?

Scientific Research shows that nearly 60% of us are struggling to sleep well and yet we all value a Good Night’s Sleep.

Sleep is as important for your body as a healthy diet or regular exercise and poor sleep has been linked to weight gain and heart disease amongst other long term health conditions.

The effects of ‘lack of sleep’ are immediate, both physically and mentally, and it can become hard to concentrate. Over time this can lead to further worries about the lack of sleep, with ever decreasing circles that can end in anxiety or even depression.

It is important to take steps to improve the quality of your sleep as soon as possible. Start and create a routine and have a `bedtime’, a regular time you go to bed.

Woman Sleeping Hiding Under The Covers

Dr. Fariha Abbasi-Feinberg, a director at the AASM, recommends adopting healthy sleep routine and suggests the following tips to address short-term insomnia:

  • Keep a consistent sleep schedule. Get up at the same time every day, even on weekends or during vacations.
  • Set a bedtime that is early enough for you to get at least 7 hours of sleep.
  • Don’t go to bed unless you are sleepy.
  • If you don’t fall asleep after 20 minutes, get out of bed.
  • Establish a relaxing bedtime routine.
  • Use your bed only for sleep and sex.
  • Make your bedroom quiet and relaxing. Keep the room at a comfortable, cool temperature.
  • Limit exposure to bright light in the evenings.
  • Turn off electronic devices at least 30 minutes before bedtime.
  • Don’t eat a large meal before bedtime. If you are hungry at night, eat a light, healthy snack.
  • Exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet.
  • Avoid consuming caffeine in the late afternoon or evening.
  • Avoid consuming alcohol before bedtime.
  • Reduce your fluid intake before bedtime.

Our recommendation is to invest in a good sleep spray and spray your pillow and sheets before you go to bed. The blend of Lavender, Chamomile and Neroli is scientifically proven to aid with falling asleep.

Following as many of these Tips as you can, gives you the best chance of getting a Good Night’s Sleep, even at times when it is difficult.

A Perfect Women's Perfume Gift Set

The Perfect Women’s Perfume Gift Set

The Perfect Women's Perfume Gift Set

A Women’s perfume gift set is proof that great things truly do come in small packages. Many high-quality sample perfume bottles can last months or even years.

Furthermore, the humble fragrance gift comes in packages as large as shoeboxes while only being only slightly more expensive than a full-sized bottle – making them a fantastic bargain.

A women’s perfume gift set allows that special lady to test out different fragrances. Unfortunately, in the beauty industry perfume often comes at the bottom of the list. A gift set can give a woman the freedom to try something new and broaden their horizons.

Even if the recipient of the gift set already has a signature fragrance, it is likely they will want to have another addition to their collection.

There is an astoundingly wide range of signature notes that can be found in perfume. Having several at their disposal will leave your loved one prepared for almost every occasion.

Perfume Gift Set Essentials

The Essential Fragrance Categories For Any Women’s Perfume Gift Set

Woody Perfume

Earthy and mossy notes are synonymous with a woody fragrance. The typical perfume notes one ought to expect are sandalwood, cedarwood and vetiver.

Oriental Perfume

Oriental fragrances are likely to be the heaviest perfume to feature in a women’s perfume gift set. Oriental perfumes tend to be spicy, musky and sometimes sugary. Their most popular notes are vanilla and cinnamon.

Perfume Gift Sets Help Find New Signature Fragrance

Aromatic Perfume

Aromatic fragrances are known to remind people of freshly mown grass or vibrant herb garden. Sage, rosemary, lavender and basil are all staple notes of aromatic perfumes.

Citrus Perfume

Citrus fragrances are a must-have in any women’s perfume gift set and are the perfect choice for those who prefer to avoid traditional fragrances. the zesty aroma of orange and lemon notes are attractive due to being fresh but also subtle.

Woman Getting Ready By Mirror

Fruity Perfume

Fruity fragrances make the perfect gift due to the extensive ingredients at their disposal. Fruity perfumes can come from any fruit you can think of, be it peach, black current or even apple.

Floral Perfume

Last but by no means least comes the most common and feminine fragrance of all. Not only are there countless flowers to choose from (e.g. rose, daisy, magnolia etc.), there are just as many floral perfume brands to chose from.

In fact, the choice of brands can be so extensive that we recommend starting by choosing your favourite flower rather than a particular brand.

A Guide To Perfume Gift Sets

Women’s Perfume Gift Set Top Tips

1. When testing their perfume gifts, we recommend the recipient pays close attention to the base notes rather than the top notes for they will create longer-lasting aromas.

2. There are two key terms that will appear a lot when looking for a women’s perfume gift set. Eau de Parfum and Eau de Toilette. These terms can be quite confusing and therefore we recommend you read this short article by Hello! Magazine.

Does the Perfect Fragrance Gift Set Exist?

Maybe, maybe not. Regardless, there are countless gift sets on offer and you should certainly shop around. Although, we do invite you to consider our Fragrance Library | Perfume Experience Box. Not only does it include a vast array of perfumes, once the man in your life has found ‘their’ fragrance, but you can also get the cost of the experience box refunded when you buy the full-sized bottle.

The Perfect Men’s Perfume Gift Set

Man Wearing Perfume From Gift Set

If someone is looking for the perfect men’s perfume gift set, it is safe to assume they are looking to treat a special man in their life – be it family, friend or colleague.

Fragrances continue to be a classic choice as a gift for men as it is regarded as a very thoughtful and personal gift.

However, what if the wrong fragrance is chosen and while you believe that one fragrance encapsulates your loved on, they have a completely different view of themselves altogether?

This is why men’s perfume gift sets were invented in the first place.

Benefits of a Men’s Perfume Gift Set

First of all, it empowers that special man to discover their own identity through cologne and fragrance. This is not only due to the choice of perfume available in a gift set, but also because the bottles in a gift set have larger amounts of scent liquid than a single perfume bottle.

Also, to be pragmatic, perfume sets often come with an offer when they are purchased which means you can save money to go towards another gift for that man in your life.

A Thoughtful And Personal Perfume Gift For Men

Which Fragrances Should A Men’s Perfume Gift Set Include?

Fougere

Fougere fragrances are certain the most commonly attributed to masculinity with many brands describing how these colognes represent a man who is cool under pressure and handles a crisis well.

The original Fougere perfume (Fougere Royale, launched in 1882) contained notes of oakmoss, tobacco, lavender and coumarin. These notes have been considered as the building blocks of Fougere fragrances ever since.

Fun fact: Fougere, (pronounced ‘foo-jair’) comes from the French word for ‘fern’

Gourmand

Gourmand colognes are also definitively categorised as masculine and make the perfect addition to a men’s perfume gift set.

They have become ever more popular in recent years, most likely down to their indulgent aromas produced from notes of vanilla, chocolate and coffee. If a man reminds you of dessert, you can safely assume he is wearing a gourmand fragrance.

Such a cologne is as seductive as it is versatile, although, we recommend that they are worn in the winter – a season of true indulgence.

Chypres

Chypre perfumes are a truly timeless fragrance for men who usually revolve around labdanum, oakmoss and bergamot. In fact, it is suggested that chypres fragrances can date back to the Roman Empire and are certainly often mentioned in manuals written in the 18th century.

They are associated more with the ‘mature’ gentleman and are often worn in the autumn. However, chypres fragrances are perfect for gift box as they are incredibly versatile and suitable for a wide range of scenarios.

Fun fact: Many mistake Chypre to be a reference to the cypress tree. In truth, it comes from the French word for Cyprus.

A Perfect Men's Perfume Gift Set

Oriental

Oriental perfumes are certainly considered as one of the more seductive fragrances and are distinctive through their emphasis on amber. The most common ambers notes that are used include patchouli, truffle and vanilla. Although oriental perfumes can be further categorised, for example, there are Spicy Orientals and Woody Orientals.

Nevertheless, if you have a young (or not so young) Batchelor in your life, this fragrance would be an accessory for a night on the pull.

Spicy

As previously mentioned, spicy fragrances do form a large sub-category of oriental fragrances. However, we believe that no man’s mini perfume set should be without a spicy aftershave. Nevertheless, oriental and spicy fragrances do fulfil very similar needs.

Although, as well as typical oriental notes, spicy perfumes often contain notes of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. Therefore, such fragrances are also commonly associated with sensuality and warmth – perfect for the evenings.

We would recommend a spicy cologne during the winter where notes such as cinnamon and nutmeg are certainly seasonally appropriate.

Floral

While floral ingredients are more commonly found in feminine fragrances, they are becoming ever more prevalent in men’s cologne, particularly the two cornerstone notes of jasmine and rose. The former adding refinedness and complexity and the latter builds cohesion amongst the other notes in the perfume

Floral fragrances are easily identified for they remind everyone of gardens, flowers and blossoms and are best worn during the spring and summer months to complement the blooming season.

Another added bonus with floral fragrances is that due to the heat amplifying perfume bouquets, just a couple of squirts (and perhaps a quick spritz in your hair) will achieve the desired effect.

The Perfect Men's Perfume Gift Set

Citrus

Citrus colognes are a perfume gift box essential and are designed for the long summers day.

As one might expect, citrus fragrances are mostly composed of strong fruity notes such as tangerine, bergamot and grapefruit. Although, in citrusy men’s colognes, Neroli is very common.

Furthermore, due to the strength of citrus perfumes, floral and chypres ingredients are often also included in order to round off the citrus.

Fun Fact: The world’s first Eau de Cologne was a citrus accord.

Aquatic

If you are buying a men’s perfume gift set for a man who loves the water, well that is when aquatic fragrances are at their best. Aquatic colognes are perfect for a sunny day by the sea, although they are also among the most versatile fragrances.

Also often known as ‘Ozonic’ fragrances, Many claim their aquatic cologne reminds them of the sea air lingering on their clothes.

Unfortunately, unlike floral perfumes where essential oils are extracted, science is still unable to put the beauty of the sea breeze in a bottle.

Woody

Woody fragrances are very distinctive and are known to remind people of nature through notes such as bark, patchouli, resin, cedar and vetiver.

Similar to other fragrances ideal for a men’s perfume gift set, woody perfumes can be split into different subcategories such as woody fruity or woody leather. However, unlike other fragrances, it is very rare to find a fragrance that is simply ‘woody’.

Fortunately, due to the influence in several other fragrance families, woody colognes, while best suited for the autumn, are very flexible. Although, they do better suit the rugged man rather than the refined gentleman.

Leather

Last but by no means least comes the leather fragrances who are considered to be the most formal cologne of any perfume gift set for men. It is for this reason that we advise you should avoid informal and casual settings and instead reserve the leather cologne for those formal occasions where your man is required to take charge.

Notes of smoky birch or bitter-smelling isoquinolines are unmatched in replicating leathery aromas while enabling the wearer to exude confidence and power.

Perfume And Fragrance Designed For Men

What Men’s Perfume Gift Set Should I Buy?

There are countless gift sets on offer and you should certainly shop around. Although, we do invite you to consider our Fragrance Library | Perfume Experience Box. Not only does it include a vast array of perfumes, once the man in your life has found ‘their’ fragrance, but you can also get the cost of the experience box refunded when you buy the full-sized bottle.
