Christmas Gift Guide : Perfumes!

It’s about time things got a little more festive over here and Fashion Mumblr, but for me, I can’t really get my head around Christmas until my birthday is over! (OK, it’s still officially my birthday if you’re reading this on the day it was published, but still!) But I thought a great way to kick things off would be my first (of many) Christmas Gift Guides – Perfume!
Fragrances are such lovely gifts to buy, and to receive and this year there are SO many incredible options that I decided to devote an entire post to them, as well as letting you know who I think they will work best for! So I hope this post gives you a little guidance to kick off your Christmas shopping!

For the Sassy Teen! Ariana Grande Eau de Parfum
I’m not usually a fan of celeb fragrances, let’s just get that one out there straight away, and to be honest it’s the seriously stylish bottle that made me want to include this in my gift guide! BUT, having said that, the fragrance isn’t actually as offensive as I thought it would be from the sweeter-than-sweet pop star, oh no, it’s actually….. rather nice! It’s fruity and floral, playful and sweet, yes, but with a musky undertone that makes it very wearable.

For the Stylish Lady! Chloé Eau de Parfum
It’s a timeless fragrance, and one which you really can’t go wrong with buying for a gift. The classic scent of roses in a floral, feminine scent. The bottle is beautiful too – the iconic fluted glass with delicate bow around the lid, it will look beautiful on any dressing table!

As soon as I laid eyes on the sparkly bodice edition of the classic Jean Paul Gaultier fragrance, I absolutely knew I had to feature on the gift guide! The fragrance itself is a sexy, floral, oriental fragrance which lingers for hours, with fruity top notes including Raspberry and Bergamot.

For the Always-On-Trend friend! Calvin Klein Euphoria
In it’s striking silver bottle, Calvin Klein Euphoria is one of those fragrances that never goes out of style. If you’re struggling for a gift idea for the friend who always looks great and absolutely has to be wearing the latest trends, you can’t go wrong with Euphoria. I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t love the musky, orchid and black violet tones.
For the Mysterious Lady! Jimmy Choo Illicit
There’s something seriously special about the new fragrance from Jimmy Choo. A certain veil of mystique lurks on the skin after spritzing on this modern floriental (I love that word) perfume. It’s elegant and edgy at the same time, with notes of Ginger and Bitter Oragne as well as Rose and Sandalwood.

For The One Who Sets The Trends Elizabeth Arden Always Red
This fragrance is seriously under rated, and your girlfriends who love to discover new trends is bound to fall in love with this dry, sophisticated floriental fragrance. With ingredients such as Passion Fruit, Jasmine, and Velvet Rose Petals – it’s unusual but instantly likeable.

For the Glamorous GalTheirry Mugler Angel Passion
Lovers of Thierry Mugler’s iconic Angel fragrance will be lusting for this more glamorous and seductive eau de perfum. Notes of  patchouli and red berries give this classic scent a captivating edge – and the red star bottle is simply striking.
For the Haute Couture Honey – Miu Miu Eau de Parfum
The first scent from the Miu Miu fashion house truly encapsulates the spirit of the brand. The combination of lily of the valley and akigalwood is instantly a familiar scent, it’s contemporary and natural but the soft blue glass bottle with the translucent red disk gives a pop of Miu Miu’s signature quirky ways to the scent.

A fresh and floral fragrance which is light and easy to wear – with notes of Violet Leaf, Strawberry and Jasmine as well as a warm top note coverage of Musk, Vanilla and White Woods. The bottle itself is a pleasure to see, with delicate daisies decorating the glass – this gift set both looks and smells incredible!

Utterly extravagant and undeniably sensual, Tom Ford Noir is one of those fragrances which women aspire to wear. A floral oriental which encapsulates the Tom Ford woman in a sleek black and gold bottle, this is one to treat your utterly glamorous and unashamedly daring friend or lover.
For the Luxury Lover – Jo Malone London Pomegranate Noir
This is the scent that I reach for on special occasions, and there’s something incredibly luxurious and warming about the scent of fruity pomegranate on the skin. It’s fruity and spicy, a very familiar scent which would make the most beautiful gift for anyone who loves a touch of luxury!
For the Fearless FashionistaYSL Black Opium
An incredibly wearable luxury fragrance, it would be impossible for the recipient not to love you for tucking this EDP into their stocking. With hedonistic notes of black coffee, with sensual Patchouli and white woods – it smells as good as it looks in the glittering bottle whose diamond dust finish replicates the rock edge but modern glamour of the scent within.
