Father's Day is fast approaching. This time of year always has me feeling quite nostalgic as i reflect on all the wonderful memories I've shared with my dad. Growing up, there were two things that embodied my dad's essence most... his guitar and the scent of his cologne. I grew up listening to countless hours of my dad strumming away at his guitar. He's so passionate about his craft and can literally fill a room with intense emotion when he plays some of his most beautiful melodies. However, his musical endeavors were not all that i remember. My dad is an incredibly handsome man. To this day, he still takes great pride in his appearance. In fact, i have such wonderful memories of the days he took me shopping! We have a mutual love of all things fashion and could seriously spend hours upon hours searching for a few good gems! But fashion aside, dad never left the house without a splash of his cologne. He always smelled amazing! His signature scent often lingered in the air long after he'd gone yet was never overwhelming... in fact, i remember it being quite comforting. As a child, i loved that i always felt him near me even when he wasn't.
As father's Day approaches, it only makes sense to give my dad a gift that reminds me of the wonderful memories we've shared. As i walked into my local Macy's men's fragrance aisle, i was quickly greeted by a few super friendly associates who help me pick out the perfect gift for dad! As i browsed the wonderful selection of fragrances, the Nautica Life Gift Set really resonated with me! The refined blend of uplifting freshness, mysterious aromatics, and seductive woods reminded me so much of my dad's cologne from my childhood! One sniff was an instant trip down memory lane! At that very moment, i knew I'd found the perfect gift for the anchor in my life!
My dad has sported Nautica for as long as i could remember. A Nautica man really speaks for an everyday hero, a man who loves water and seeks the connection to nature and to people through this element. My dad is the epitome of this man! Growing up, my dad connected me with nature through many camping adventures, endless beach days and picnics on the grounds of my favorite palace in Portugal (The Feather Palace aka Palacio Da Pena). I'm so incredibly blessed for being able to experience all of these things with my hero!
While I'm no longer a little girl dancing on my daddy's toes, i love and embrace the man that he is today. From the day he walked me down the aisle, to the proud look in his eyes when he sees my little girls. So this Father's Day, i celebrate the lifelong journey of my dad's love with the new Nautica Life fragrance. I know daddy will love it too! This gorgeous set includes a 3.4 oz Eau De Toilette, 2.5 oz After Shave Balm, 2.5 oz Shower Gel and 1 oz Eau De Toilette (perfect for travel) for only $65 (total value $128).
