Which is why we’ve got our experts to whittle down the overwhelming number of options, to give you a winning his and hers Christmas solution whatever couple you’re shopping for….
For the loved-up couple
Forever in the honeymoon phase, this romantic duo is happiest when they’re together (insert cheesy selfie). When they’re not planning their next extravagant date or cosy night in, they’re looking for ways to brighten up each other’s day. Awwww.
For her: For this seductress, only heady notes will do. Cue Hugo Boss’ Boss the Scent. Created to *ahem* “elicit a hidden seductive power that envelops the woman who wears it with a captivating allure”. Aka, it’s got the irresistible factor in spades. We love the lingering base note of cacao, because we challenge you to find any person who isn’t attracted to chocolate.
For him: If passion is his middle name, then Hugo Boss’s Boss the Scent makes the ultimate wing man. A woody blend of ginger, maninka fruit, lavender, and leather (oo-er), it’s got date night written all over. Complete with the matching fragranced shower gel, this gift set is sure to impress.
For the adventurous couple
They’re spontaneous, never still and always trying out the latest adrenaline-spiking activity. This couple don’t believe in comfort zones and prefer to push the boundaries and get outdoors whenever they can. Gift them a fragrance that taps into their curiosity and zest for life, with notes that will transport their senses.
For her: Said to spark new experiences and memories, Calvin Klein’s signature Euphoria perfume matches the energy of the free-spirited. An intoxicating floral scent, with power notes like black orchid and pomegranate, it’s one they’ll return to time and time again.
For him: Fresh, dynamic and breaking gender stereotypes since the nineties, Calvin Klein’s One is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser. This set, completed by a matching shower gel, hits all the rights notes – we’re talking bergamot, green tea and papaya.
For the sophisticated couple
When it comes to describing them, the word ‘chic’ immediately springs to mind. Everything they do is class all the way from their luxe lifestyle to their personal style. Don’t let their taste for the finer things in life intimidate you, we’ve got the perfect match to their more-is-more aesthetic.
For her: For the ultimate lesson in Parisian chic, look to Yves Saint Laurent. Their signature Black Opium scent, with its floral gourmand profile, is as bold and beautiful as the glitter-flecked bottle. We are obsessed with this gift set, featuring a timeless red lipstick – the perfect finishing touch for those extra special date nights.
For him: As dapper and distinctive as an expertly tailored suit, Y by Yves Saint Laurent was made for the quietly confident man. A bold blend of woody notes (like tonka bean, sage essence and frankincense essence), it’s got head-turning appeal.
