Skip the scrolling session and head straight to our top fragrance set picks…
Why choose a fragrance set?
Once exclusively reserved for extra, special occasions (think Christmas, Valentine’s Day), fragrance sets can now be found year-round on selected scents. Typically boxing up a full-sized bottle, with matching body care goodies, not only do they work out at better value, but they give you the chance to experiment with layering your scent. Because we all know, when you layer with the matching shower gel, body lotions and mists, each spritz has more staying power.
Our top fragrance set picks
1. Daisy Eau so Fresh by Marc Jacobs Marc
Jacobs’ Daisy, with its Instagrammable floral bottle and crowd-pleasing notes, always sneaks its way onto ‘best fragrance’ lists. This summer-ready variation, Eau so Fresh, elevates the signature scent we know and love, adding sunny notes of grapefruit, apple blossom and pear. Featuring a 75ml Eau de Toilette, 75ml body lotion and 75ml shower gel, you can start enjoying the scent from the moment you step into your morning shower with this extra luxurious set.
2. La Vie Est Belle by Lancome
Fronted by A-list actress Julia Roberts, La Vie Est Belle is the perfume to reach for when you want to add an air of sophistication to your look. A balance of fruity and floral notes, it’ll make quite an impression on whoever passes by. Keep the deliciously sweet scent lasting for even longer by starting with a top-to-toe application of the matching body lotion which comes complete in this 50ml set.
3. Guilty by Gucci
If you think floral perfumes are all about pretty petals, then Gucci’s Guilty will make you rethink the entire fragrance family. While this scent falls into the floral category thanks to its heart of Lily, it’s expertly layered with geranium oil and features patchouli oils at the base, for a floral scent with added depth and drama. We love this set, for its ultra-chic box (perfect for upcycling as storage) and travel-friendly 50ml body lotion.
4. Black Opium by Yves Saint Laurent
Black Opium is to a date night outfit, what red lipstick is to a date night outfit – it has the power to boost your confidence and adds a seductive final flourish. So, when we saw this gift set from Yves Saint Laurent, we knew this genius pairing would really take off. From the sultry notes to the blood-red lippie, there’s a lot to obsess over in this beauty box.
5. Invictus by Paco Rabanne
A trophy-shaped fragrance can’t simply go in a rectangular box, right? Which is why this set from Paco Rabanne, houses its signature Invictus scent and matching deodorant in a reusable tin, shaped like a football – pulling off the ultimate hat trick.
6. Spice Bomb by Viktor & Rolf
Described as a ‘fragrance explosion’, Viktor & Rolf’s Spice Bomb detonates attitude with every spray. Notes of chilli, saffron and tobacco accord, will be responsible for people stopping you in the street and asking, ‘what are you wearing’. So, it makes sense to always keep a miniature bottle in your back pocket, for on-the-go spruce-ups, which comes in this handy gift set alongside a 90ml Eau de Toilette.
7. Boss Bottled Infinite, Hugo Boss
Looking for a fail-safe gift idea? You can never go wrong with a fragrance from Hugo Boss. This reinvention of the signature Boss Bottled, blends citrus and woody notes for an all-occasion scent that will never let you down. Featuring a matching shower gel, this set is sure to impress.
8. Eau de Lacoste L12.12 Blanc by Lacoste
Exploding with freshness, with woody notes at the base to keep the hold, Lacoste’s Eau de Lacoste L12.12 Blanc is sure to become your new everyday go-to. This set, complete with travel-friendly deodorant spray, will keep the citrus notes topped up and lingering for longer.
