My lovely father — you can call him Papa Mangum — may be the easiest person to shop for. Whatever the occasion, he only wants three things as gifts: a gift card to Brooks Brothers, cologne, and fishing equipment. I know nothing about rods, reels, and tackle, so I always stay in my beauty and fashion comfort zone.

So, if your father is a simple man with simple interests like mine, click through to find out what scents to buy ol' pops this Father's Day.
