Your Ultimate Christmas Fragrance Gift Guide
Christmas feels as though it’s already in full swing, with decorations starting to appear and Christmas songs playing on the radio. It seems everyone is in the festive spirit in plenty of time this year, but have you started your Christmas shopping yet? If the answer is no, then don’t panic. At Perfume Direct we’ve put together a simple but effective fragrance gift guide, steering you in the right direction no matter the type of fragrance you need.
From classic favourites to something a little bit special, our Christmas gift guide also includes stocking fillers and gift sets to satisfy even the most fussiest of family members. So, let’s get started!
Classic Fragrance Gifts
Classic fragrances are ones that simply don’t go out of style, don’t age and can be worn for any occasion. In other words, you simply can’t go wrong, so if you’re struggling to make a decision, we’ve got a classic fragrance for him and her that will do perfectly.
For him, Hugo Boss Bottled is the ultimate classic, everyday aftershave that is confident and contemporary. With elegant woody notes combined with zesty citrus, the result is a fresh and versatile aftershave. Notes of apple, geranium, cinnamon, sandalwood, vetiver and cedarwood come together in this unique masculine fragrance.
For her, a brand’s signature fragrance is always a good choice. Chloe Signature is an iconic fragrance that spans generations, with a scent that is both light but strong. Chloe Signature has a stunning blend of fruits and florals for a truly feminine and wearable perfume. Notes of peach, peony, freesia, rose and lily-of the-valley give way to a base of amber and sandalwood for a comforting, familiar smell.
Luxury Fragrance Gifts
If you’re hoping to find something a little more special for your loved one, you’ll find a vast choice of luxury fragrances with us. These scents ooze glamour and charm, making them ideal for special occasions.
For him, Givenchy Gentleman is an aromatic aftershave that exudes refinery and sophistication. Winning a Men’s Health award in 2018, this is a scent that has stood the test of time while offering something special. Notes of tarragon and bergamot come together with a luxurious heart of orris root, jasmine and patchouli before finishing on an intoxicating base of leather, vetiver, amber and vanilla.
For her, discovering something that stands out from the crowd will put you in good stead for the perfect Christmas present this year. White Patchouli by Tom Ford offers an elegant floral perfume with notes of bergamot, peony and rose combined with patchouli and jasmine. This results in a sparkling, alluring and soft fragrance that will captivate attention.
Perfect Scents For Winter
Christmas presents are often a great excuse to get something that’s comforting and cosy, with wintry scents that take advantage of the season. If you’re looking for something your recipient can wear right now, we’ve got just the ideas.
Acqua di Parma Colonia Mirra is a cologne that works perfectly for men, with a fusion of bright notes combined with warming scents. Orange blossom gives way to nutmeg and myrrh, before finishing on a base of patchouli and amber for a truly comforting and sophisticated scent for winter.
For something that embodies the dark winter nights perfectly, YSL Black Opium Intense for her is inspired by mystery and boldness. Its unique blend of notes makes it a deep, rich fragrance, with absinthe, jasmine, orange blossom and coffee. Finishing with sandalwood, liquorice and vanilla, it is sweet, rich and feminine.
Fragrance Gift Sets For Christmas
Gift sets are the perfect choice if you want to go the extra mile and give something more than just a bottle of perfume or aftershave. Our gift sets from all the big brands include special additions, so you can give multiple gifts in one.
For him, the Paco Rabanne Phantom gift set includes a bottle of the new fragrance from this best-selling brand, and a 150ml scented deodorant. Paco Rabanne Phantom is a woody-aromatic fragrance, with notes of lavender, lemon, patchouli and vanilla. You can connect your phone to the bottle to discover the Phantom Universe, making this an extra special gift set.
Whether you’re feeling indecisive or you know your recipient is of the same temperament, you can’t go wrong with a gift set that includes choice. The Prada miniatures gift set includes 5 bottles, ranging from 7ml to 9ml in size. The fragrances include the original Prada Candy, along with Candy Florale, Candy Gloss and Prada La Femme.
The Perfect Stocking Fillers
Whether you’ve already bought a fragrance for your family and friends or not, there’s no harm in sneaking in an extra stocking filler or two into your basket! Stocking fillers are great for that unexpected addition on Christmas Day, and putting an even bigger smile on someone’s face.
The Style & Grace Mini Grooming Set contains a number of products in one so you can really treat someone, including shower gel, aftershave balm, shampoo and bottle opener keyring. Scented with mint, bergamot and sandalwood, who said pampering was just for women?
Help your mum, sister, wife, girlfriend or daughter unwind and relax after the chaos of Christmas with the BeautyPro The Glow Edit gift set.
