Teenage Boy Fragrance Gifts is a paid collaboration with parfumedreams. Shall we talk about adolescent boys and smells? It seems that we go from the allergic to bathing and grooming stage to the chewing on Lynx stage overnight. Trust me I have been there as have many mothers before me. My boys are 16 and 17 now and long past that Lynx stage, so I wanted to share with you, some of the fabulous grooming gifts that parfumedreams have to offer and that would be or have been on their list.
I have always firmly believed in giving my boys good products and teaching them how to use them respectfully. That meant some difficult discussions (for me at least) on the fact that we do not use a body spray to mask smells, instead, we layer present scents one way we did this is that my husband was fitted with a bottle of Dior Savage that Maxi was really keen on, however, it is a rather expensive Eau de Toilette and we said that he could have it as long as it lasted and he used it currently and for special occasions rather than every day and it worked for us!
Fragrance Gift Ideas for Teens
When choosing a fragrance for a teenager you want it to reflect their youth and not be too overpowering. Teenage guys spend most of the time in class, doing sports, on their Xbox or with friends. I prefer a lighter fragrance for their cologne, although both of them love Versace Eros for when they are going out.
When it comes to the best colognes for a teen boy I always look for citrus notes like grapefruit, apple, pineapple and lemon first. Thenighter spices such as vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, pepper and patchouli and green notes such as juniper, cardamon, moss, cedar and sandalwood. More manly but youthful florals such as lavender, geranium, vetiver and jasmine add lightness and longevity. You also can not go wrong with a sea note that gives that fresh scent perfect for young men.
I don’t think you can go wrong with a classic like Tommy Hilfinger, CK1 or Polo Sport as an introduction to the world of fragrance, they are classics for a reason. We bypassed all body sprays and opted for roll-on deodorant (Like Nivea and a very light or unscented antiperspirant usually from the ladies’ section).
When it comes to Christmas and birthdays I love a gift set, so if you know their signature scent then why not opt for one with a shower gel so they can layer their preferred fragrance? If you are really unsure then opt for a gift card so they can make their own choice.
