How to choose a fragrance for Father’s Day

With Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to consider just how to celebrate the dads, partners and father-figures in our lives. The right fragrance shows that you understand his taste and appreciate his style – and what better message to send than that?

Our fragrances are designed to be genderless so anyone can enjoy them,” explains LUMIRA founder and creative director Almira Armstrong. “They’re confident, spirited and avoid easy  categorisation. That said, certain fragrances in the range do tend to be favourites with our male customers.”

If you’re searching for a scent that dad can enjoy (and you can too), look no further...

No 352 Leather & Cedar

Inspired by the edgy creativity of Surry Hills in Sydney, this elegant fragrance opens with spicy top notes before settling into the warm sophisticated notes of leather and wood. Find No 352 Leather & Cedar in a candle or perfume oil.

Arabian Oud

Still one of our most popular scents, Arabian Oud contrasts the unmistakable honeyed notes of oud with the softness of powdery rose. The resulting scent brings an opulent and refined spirit to both the wearer and the home. Discover the candle, perfume oil and the newest addition to the Arabian Oud collection, the room spray.

Cuban Tobacco

The old-world charm of Havana was the starting point, but this is a thoroughly modern scent thanks to the inclusion of earthy patchouli and musk. It’s this dance between old and new that makes Cuban Tobacco such an enigma. As a candle or perfume oil it’s sure to delight.

Tuscan Fig

The milky-sweetness of sun-baked fig, contrasted with the fresh green of its leaves, makes this a perennial favourite and one that is sure to bring warmth and radiance to dad’s day. Shop the Tuscan Fig candle here.


When you just can’t decide on a fragrance, a chic glass dome, candle snuffer or wick trimmer will help him get the most out of his collection.

Australian orders placed online by Wednesday August 28 will arrive in time for Father’s Day.  Or visit our list of stockists to find the perfect gift near you.
