I may have attacked my husband the first time I dabbed some Dude No. 1 from MCMC Fragrances on his neck. It’s that good. And when I dabbed their Hunter eau de parfum on my neck, I was attacked in return. The best Father’s Day gifts, in my opinion, involve that kind of selfless dedication. Oh, wait. I mean selfish.
I first discovered MCMC Fragrances as a sample in a Bergamot box. When I realized that two of my favorite fragrance samples this year were from MCMC, I had to contact them for more information on Father’s Day fragrances. Turns out they recently turned their bestselling, all natural Dude No. 1 beard oil into a cologne, and let me tell you: it’s fantastic, with none of that alcohol-heavy nose burn that makes me cringe at the perfume counter.
Dude No. 1 starts off with a spicy peppercorn and ginger top note, then dries down to a delicious mix of cedar and sandalwood that keeps me sniffing until I’m lightheaded. Oh, and my husband likes it too. If you’re worried about synthetic ingredients, this scent is 100% natural.
Other scents worth trying: Hunter smells like a cabin in the woods during a blizzard, all lovely, cool firs and a dry-down of boozy bourbon vanilla and tobacco that somehow stays crisp. It’s very unisex and smells fantastic on my husband, but again, I’m selfish. I kept this one for myself. I’m also a fan of Love and Maine.
Let’s just say if I’m four for four on their men’s scents, that’s a big deal for a fragrance snob like me.
