Si Intense by Armani
A new addition to the Armani collection, Si Intense is the ideal perfume for women who love modern, feminine scents. Just like the much-loved original, it opens with a signature fruity burst of blackcurrant nectar. Reinvented as an intensified eau de parfum, it soon reveals a floral heart of rose and davana that’s surrounded by patchouli and benzoin for lasting appeal. Housed in a sleek glass bottle that’s topped with a glossy black, stone-shaped cap, what could be more luxurious than this festive fragrance lined up on their dressing table? Trust us, this Christmas perfume is so perfect, there’ll be no need to include a receipt when it’s time to wrap.
Terre d’Hermès by Hermes
Anything by Hermes is an automatic win, and this fragrance is a Christmas gift that’s sure to be gratefully received by that special man in your life. It’s a dry and spicy scent infused with notes of woody cedar, refreshing grapefruit and earthy flint. So if you want to introduce your dad, brother or significant other to their soon-to-be signature perfume or help someone stock up on a tried-and-tested favourite, Terre d’Hermès is the perfect gift for under the tree. Just make sure Santa doesn’t take all the credit…
Angel by Mugler
If you’re after a failsafe fragrance to give this holiday season, then Angel by Mugler is the cult classic that’s guaranteed to put a smile on any recipient’s face. Thanks to its iconic star-shaped bottle that’s topped off with a silver lid, this bottle is next-level Christmassy. But there’s much more to this perfume than its gorgeous container. The gourmand scent delicately blends sweet red fruits, soft caramel, honey and praline with patchouli and vanilla. Did we mention it’s refillable too? The eco-friendly design means it can be topped up again and again and will earn you serious points with those on your list who love buying sustainably.
Luna Rossa Carbon by Prada
Part of Prada’s bestselling Luna Rossa line, Luna Rossa Carbon is an ode to nature, with refreshing lavender and earthy geranium notes enlivened with a warm ambroxan base. A vibrant, masculine and woody scent, this iconic fragrance creates a sense of pure indulgence and luxury for the noteworthy men in your life who are lucky enough to receive it on Christmas morning. A scent he’s sure to appreciate, it’s a sure-fire way to spread joy and festive cheer this December!
