Perfume is pretty personal, so it can be really hard to gift it for any occasion. If you’re unsure of someone’s note preferences, their affinity for parfum or toilette, or the gravity of the presentation for the recipient, you can get it wrong.
But fragrance is such a great gift because it lasts long, it’s an opportunity for someone to explore a scent without spending a dime, and when it’s really good, it has such an impact. And we all have at least one friend or family member who wouldn’t go to the supermarket without hitting those pulse points with a little something.
This holiday season, reach for one of the great options in the gallery below for that fragrance junkie in your life. They smell incredible, and they’ll elevate their vanity with a touch of color and sleekness.
