The Best Fragrances To Wear This Christmas
Whether you are looking for the perfect accessory to wear on Christmas Day, or you’re looking for a great gift for a loved one, you can’t go wrong with perfume and aftershave. Christmas is one of the most sociable times of year, so having the right fragrance can make all the difference to your favourite outfits as you visit family and friends.
So, whether you’re shopping for yourself or for someone special, here is the lowdown on some of the best fragrances to add to your collection around this time of year.
Christmas Aftershave For Men
Christmas evokes many different memories and smells for each individual, and the right fragrance can reflect this perfectly. For many men’s aftershaves for Christmas, the scent should be woody, warming and little spicy to match the winter season.
The first choice, whether for yourself or a special man in your life, is Dior Sauvage. Created with natural ingredients, the aftershave begins with juicy, sweet bergamot before opening into spicy and woody notes. Sichuan pepper, star anise, nutmeg and vanilla work together to create a warm trail of scents to match the time of year.
For something a little more oriental-inspired, Viktor & Rolf’s Spicebomb Night Vision is the perfect aftershave for all your Christmas festivities. Launched in 2019, this new men’s aftershave is ideal for yourself or as a Christmas gift. It has been created with a combination of fresh, spicy and woody notes to complement all the different smells of the winter season. Grapefruit and green apple work together with nutmeg, clove and red chilli pepper, before giving way to an almond and woody base.
For a more laidback, everyday fragrance to take you through the Christmas period, Jo Malone Black Cedarwood and Juniper cologne is the ultimate choice. Created with aromatic cumin, vibrant juniper and leathery black cedarwood, this fragrance has a very urban, modern scent.
Christmas Perfumes For Women
For women, perfumes for Christmas can be the best gift. Treat yourself or someone else to a new perfume that suits the season with these unique scents.
Hiding in the shadow of the brand’s hugely popular Alien fragrance, Thierry Mugler Aura is a beautifully distinct perfume for this time of year. Great for day or night, Aura is a woody fragrance that opens with bergamot, orange blossom and ylang-ylang. The perfume has a woody base complete with vanilla and sandalwood.
A limited edition fragrance can often make for an exciting present, especially when it comes in the shape of a stiletto heel. Carolina Herrera Good Velvet Fatale has a unique combination of notes resulting in a sumptuous and addictive fragrance. The fragrance is made from warming notes such as almond, coffee, cacao, praline and cinnamon, alongside lighter notes of jasmine sambac, orange blossom and Bulgarian rose.
For a glam rock fragrance that is perfect for all your social events this Christmas, YSL Black Opium is a dark, mysterious perfume that is full of energy. It has a gourmand, floral scent with a beautiful combination of notes that balance together well. The fragrance opens with pink pepper and orange blossom, before moving into a heart of coffee, jasmine and liquorice and ending on a base on vanilla, patchouli and cashmere wood.
If you’re buying fragrances for your loved ones this Christmas, don’t forget that a Christmas gift set could be the perfect choice this year!
