One more day to Christmas, and if like me you’re never really done your last minute shopping until they have to literally roll down the doors and usher you out, then you’ve got your work cut out for you. Finding the perfect gift is a tough task in itself, let alone having to endure the Holiday rush and traffic. So I’ve compiled a list of my current 5 favorite fragrances that would make lovely Christmas gifts to friends or loved ones in no particular order.
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Wild Eau De Parfum Limited Edition
Black Opium, is my go-to night out favorite fragrance, so you know I’d never pass up on a Limited Edition piece. It’s a collectible’s bottle that perfectly encapsulates the spirit and identity of every fierce woman that loves this scent. It’s a spicy one, with coffee, white flowers, vanilla, cedar and patchouli.
Dior Miss Dior Absolutely Blooming Eau De Parfum
Christian Dior’s legendary passion of flowers is no secret, so expect lots of them with Centifolia May rose from Grasse and peony, as well as white musk with an overpowering berry fruity note to it. It’s sexy and passionate and if the scent isn’t enough to lure you in, then the iconic bottle on the dressing table should.
Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline
Omnia is about the lightness of being, gentle, airy yet effortlessly feminine. This new version of Crystalline is richer and more sexy without being vulgar. Expect to smell notes of lotus, musk and mandarin, a combination I’ve personally come to love.
Acqua di Parma Peonia Nobile
This was love at first spritz for me. If you’re not familiar with Acqua di Parma yet, it’s probably because it just opened at ABC Ashrafieh. As part of their Nobile Collection this new fragrance is both sharp and fresh- like a cool sip of pink lemonade of a beautiful day. Peonies and pepper are most prominent in this scent. It’s ridiculously long-lasting and I can’t wait to discover more from this luxurious Italian brand.
L’OCCITANE de Provence Arlésienne Eau de Toilette
A brand new deeply captivating floral scent from this all-natural brand that’s all about well-being and aromatherapy. Inspired by the mysterious and bold confident woman of the south, Arlésienne is a floral bouquet with citrus bursts that leave a captivating trail behind them-don’t you just love it when you leave the room but your scent lingers on behind? I know I do. This can be also gifted as a set alongside it’s very own Beauty Milk body moisturizer.
