Festive films are at the top of our agenda this winter. So if buying a new scent is on your list too, it’s only right that you pick one that matches your favourite Christmas flick…
PACO RABANNE PURE XS FOR HIM = ELF
There’s nothing more Christmassy than watching Elf, FACT. And guess what, Christmas in a bottle actually exists. Paco Rabanne Pure XS is a sensual blend of ginger, cinnamon, vanilla and myrrh. Did Buddy the Elf secretly make this scent? We think so.
CAROLINA HERRERA GOOD GIRL VELVET FATALE FOR HER – MEAN GIRLS
Mean Girls fan? You need Good Girl. This sexy stiletto bottle is covered in red velvet (and is the first high-heel shaped perfume in the world). It totally reminds us of The Plastics singing Jingle Bell Rock in their heeled boots. The smell? Almond, cocoa and vanilla – warm and Christmassy.
HUGO BOSS BOSS THE SCENT PRIVATE ACCORD FOR HIM = THE HOLIDAY
This super-festive blend of ginger, mocha accord and cocoa makes us want to snuggle up in Iris’s cosy countryside cottage for ever. But more importantly, it’s a magnetic, bold scent for men that draws everyone in. If it hadn’t have launched this year, we’d have predicted that Jude Law spritzed this before he met Amanda Woods…
MUGLER AURA = HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS
There’s nothing wrong with channelling your inner Grinch this Christmas. So if you’re staying away from festive smells, opt for Mugler Aura. With no signs of cinnamon and cocoa, indulge in the fresh, sweet notes of rhubarb leaves, orange blossom and wolfwood (a silky woody note).
