Last-minute gift rush? We all know what it’s like when the secret Santa deadline creeps upon us, or a family member/friend has slipped our mind. For a gift you can’t go wrong with, and is easy to get hold of, we have put together a gift guide for you containing a range of fragrances loved by everyone. You may think fragrances are hard to gift to particular people, but with these fragrances, you can be confident that your gifting game is on point.
To start with the highest price within our selection, first up we have Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent, priced at £78.00 for 50ml. This deep fragrance is addictive, sexy, and seductive. Best described to be captivatingly floral with an overdose of black coffee, and a shot of adrenaline. This screams date night, and not to mention what an amazing feature the bottle would bring to a dressing table.
With Burberry being such a classic brand, their My Burberry fragrance will always be a winner. This fragrance is priced at £55.00 but the scent lasts a lifetime. An exciting floral fragrance with a hint of citrus. A daytime fragrance is full of class and elegance, inspired by Burberry’s classic trench coat. This fragrance blends into the skin to complement any character. The base notes of this scent include lemon, sweet pea, peach, and passionfruit.
This may be new to a few but for us, this is, and always will be a game-changer. Glossier’s You. £45.00. Heavy, warm, creamy notes that transform personally to your skin! This exclusivity means that it will never smell the same on one person. The first spray is how you will remain to smell all day, but most importantly the mix of the scent and your natural scent will create an addictive warm aroma. Be ready for the compliments!
A scent that I would bathe in if I could, Mac Turquatic £36.00. This luxury fragrance is unisex and compliments quite literally everybody! Another timeless product created by Mac Cosmetics. Best described as very fresh yet sultry. The initial spritz of this fragrance lasts for hours. Inspired by the sea, this scent includes fresh Almalfi lemon with hints of sand and sea.
& Other Stories are a hidden gem when it comes to fragrance. A personal favourite of mine is Riveria Postcard, but in fact, all of the fragrances are so unique and smell divine. Riveria Postcard is £28.00 and is described as ‘Nostalgic breeze of citrus awaken’s slumbering palm tree avenues’. This is the perfect scent to reminisce on a recent holiday, with notes of lemon zest, peach bellini, pineapple, pink sugar, and caramel, this fragrance makes you seem edible.
Last but certainly not least is Zara. The leading lady of quality fragrance for no more than £15 per bottle. Zara Gold is flying off the shelves, and if you can get hold of it will become a staple scent for only £10.99. A dupe of Gucci Bloom, including classic notes of jasmine, gardenia, and honey. A fragrance that is wearable every day but is elegant and captivating, creating a statement evening scent too.
For most of us, our fragrance is the staple that brings it all together. So why not give the gift of confidence this Christmas?
