Is perfume a good Christmas gift?
Absolutely! Christmas can become overwhelming with an onslaught of giving, indulgence, and merry events, so giving gifts that can be enjoyed and experienced beyond the festive period is a great way of ensuring that you’ve chosen something special. A Christmas perfume gift set can be a sign of your deep understanding of a loved one or a wonderful luxurious gift that shows you care.
Perfume gift sets allow someone to experience a brand-new scent that can quickly become their favourite for every day or kept for the most special occasions. Choosing a fragrance for someone takes time and thought as you want it to be something they can comfortably wear, and feel is representative of them. The time that goes into choosing a scent makes it a truly heartfelt gift.
How do I choose a perfume for a gift?
Selecting a perfume for someone can seem daunting, especially if you’re not sure of their preferences, but considering your own preferences can be helpful. Keep these tips in mind when selecting perfumes this Christmas:
Choosing the right notes
Perfumes and colognes comprise three layers of notes: base, head (or top), and middle (or heart), which together form the overall scent.
A floral perfume, such as Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum by Viktor & Rolf, is rich in flowery notes with jasmine, rose, orchid and patchouli mingling with musk for an oriental floral scent.
A fruitier or more exotic perfume may combine citrus notes with spices and herby notes such as cinnamon and star anise. Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum is renowned for its luxuriousness but also the exotic nature of the scent with neroli, bitter orange and raspberry meeting orange flower, Arabian jasmine and base notes of patchouli, honey and amber.
Men’s scents are often heavier with musky and leathery notes or fresh hits of menthol and pine. When selecting a fragrance for someone you love it is worth doing some detective work and getting a feel for the kind of scent they really love. Moreover, in the realm of men’s grooming, aftershave products play a significant role. A popular option among men is Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Eau de Toilette, known for its distinctive and captivating scent.
Giving someone the ideal Christmas present can be challenging, but a thoughtfully chosen perfume resonates with personal style and sentiment. With an array of women’s perfume gift sets, as well as men’s aftershave gift sets, discover the scent that perfectly captures the essence of your loved ones, making your festive gesture memorable and cherished.
