Nail Down Father’s Day with LPO Russian Leather Scent, Sleek Parker Pens or Ireland’s Inis Fragrances

Father’s Day is one of those difficult holidays. You want to get the guy something special but not too “too” over the top but also not boring. I found a couple of nifty things here that make great gifting options. In fact, you could buy both and stash one away for holidays, birthday or other special occasions.

Libby Patterson Olfactory: Russian Leather Fragrance

Just the name inspires an almost feral response because it’s leather and it’s got exotic Russian influences and it speaks to long nights and a long-standing favorite scent as well as clothing– leather. Here’s what Libby Patterson has to say about her creation:

This parfum was inspired by all the many stories I have heard over the past few years, of Russia. Both from the archives that my grandfather left of his industrious and entrepreneurial building of the first sustainable city in Russia, in the early 30’s when the war was on the verge of breaking out in europe, to my clients and friends today, who have an insider knowledge on the regality of the thrones, the power, and the beauty of the earlier days in Russia. I happened onto some incredible information on how leathers from Russia were tanned, with essential oils, used for shoes, luggage, handbags, no one at the time could compare, with the quality.

I had it in my mind, to build upon the success of my parfum Purrrrrr, which was created in 2007, to create something that men would know was truly designed for them.

It keeps revealing more of it’s smoky, deep and sizzling sexual nature, as each layer is worn, building cognitrons into the deeper areas of the brain, that can be triggered for a romantic intention. Women love wearing it, and feel like a cat in it, ready to pounce. The men recognize it’s magnetic sexual draw . It’s for people who want to wear the regality, the royal nature of the sizzle of this ancient lineage of power, and empowerment….that was inspired by such great people in both the collective history, and that of my personal one with my grandfather.

This was designed in early May and –at this writing in mid-June– is only a month in the bottle. It is a purely joyful and raw version of what it will grow into, over the next five years. It is a definite collectable.

2oz $1500, 1oz $750, 1/2oz $375, 10ml $275, 5ml $150, 1ml $35

Hmmm. I think Libby said pretty much everything one needs to know about this scent. At least buy the 1ML to see if it works for the man in your life. If not, maybe you should be wearing it and thus be giving him a gift that he could not have previously imagined. We women love to wear men’s scents because it brings out the smokier, darker side of our nature.

For the man who has every tech device out there– and we all know who we are talking about– or the man who hesitates and often prefers the old-fashioned means of communication, there’s a singular gift that will appeal and fit both types of men because they will appreciate and USE this gift on a daily basis– a fabulous pen!
