Fragrance Gifts to Impress This Christmas

Words by Maya Prever

Perfumes make an incredible gift. Whether you’re gifting a fragrance expert or someone dabbling in scent for the first time, you can’t go wrong with either a Christmas perfume gift set or a singular scent sensation. This year with some of the most popular perfumes this Christmas heralding notes of cosy sandalwood and patchouli to match the warmth of the season, and other niche scents satisfying a wanderlust, there are an array to pick from. Between floral scents, fresh scents, and woody olfactory signatures, it can make finding the perfect scent rather tricky. But we’ve taken away the hard work and hours of searching and curated an edit of fragrance gifts guaranteed to impress this Christmas.

Nature's Finest

No trip away to the Brazilian jungle this holiday? Then close your eyes and drift towards the tropical hideaway with a single spritz of Costa Brazil’s Aroma. The smoky, yet earthy blend of white jungle flora, sandalwood and patchouli evokes a sense of balance and calmness. This oasis-in-a-bottle makes the perfect perfume for Christmas, especially for those who are always on the go.

Life of the Party

Nothing says Christmas like New York at the holidays. The lights, the vibrancy, and the magical energy. Like the city, this scent captures the buoyant scene with spicy saffron and sweet hazelnut that dry down to a smoky, deep amber and tonka bean absolute. An editor’s favourite, one spritz is all it takes for this to be worn on high rotation
