Prada fragrances are always full of clever contrasts and unexpected notes. In the latest men’s offering, Infusion de Vétiver, earthy vetiver is enlivened with spicy tarragon, pepper and ginger. Hardcore fans of the vetiver note might find it too light, but others will see it as a fresh spring scent, perfect for Father’s Day. Prada Infusion de Vétiver 100ml EDT, $129. From department stores nationwide. Dad mightn’t want to use the rose-scented hand lotion in the bathroom, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t want smooth, protected skin. Give him his own tube of The Body Shop’s Hemp Hand Protector, which contains Community Fair Trade hemp seed oil and beeswax for a super-hydrating but non-greasy feel. The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector, $12. From The Body Shop nationwide. Made by two Kiwi fathers for other Kiwi fathers, the new Primal Earth skincare range is just as notable for what it leaves out as what it contains. Formulated without parabens, sulphates and formaldehy­de, it instead uses plant extracts of aloe vera, green tea and harakeke flax. The gift pack contains moisturise­r, shave gel and face wash. Primal Earth Skin Essentials gift pack, $35. www.primaleart­h.co.nz.
