It’s clutch time, and you need to focus in order to complete the task of gift buying for all the nice (and maybe a few naughty) people on your list. We’ve suggested sneakers, so many watches, a volcanic ash mask, and Balinese baubles, but here’s an even easier gift that will impress: a bottle of perfume.

A single puff of Uomo Salvatore Ferragamo, the newest fragrance from the Italian luxury house, is like a bloom of radiance that gives its wearer suaveness, which is really its goal: to express the charm of Italian style.

You will be reminded of tiramisu, as in the dessert, or more specifically, chocolate and coffee and cream, and later on, a slight hit of booze. Tonka bean, which registers as a heady vanilla, pumps up the mix even more.

The potion is thick and powerful like a wall of scent that fills the room (use sparingly), but because of its gourmand quality, it also reads light. For that, we recommend Uomo for an older brother, a peer, an uncle, and also a father, who is not too serious.

There are subtle fragrances that draw women closer. There are strange mixes that tickle your nose. Uomo is a crowd-pleaser, a deliberate fragrance whose effect, confident and playful, warm and sweet, is immediate.

One more thing

For the lucky friend/ son/ dad/ grooming nut: the gift of youth or, more precisely, the gift of not looking like you barely survived a raging bender. The Age Defender line from Kiehl’s, a set of serum, moisturizer, and eye cream (use in this order), is an easy way to jumpstart the good habit of caring for your face.

The formulas contain natural ingredients such as cypress, linseed, and rye seed extracts, all of which says Kiehl’s, will improve the firmness of skin, giving you a more youthful appearance. The textures vary: the serum sinks immediately into skin as it should, the moisturizer is richer and thicker, and the eye cream glides onto skin smoothly.

A skincare routine helps, but tell the lucky friend/ son/ dad/ grooming nut to cut down on the booze, late nights, and sun exposure, as well, to really look good.
