So you’ve got the task to buy the best Chrimbo present for her. What you gonna do? The answer is: listen to us ’cos we know a thing or two about special presents. Yep, here are the major perfumes that she secretly wants for Christmas (but probably won’t give you the hint)…
Probably the most popular female fragrance for Christmas gifts, Angel is super-festive. Yes, it looks like the star on top of your Christmas tree, but it also smells like a dream – we’re talking wafts of vanilla, honey, caramel and praline. You may think we’re joking, but it exists IRL.
Sarah Jessica Parker Lovely Gift Set
Does she love Sarah Jessica Parker? The answer is probably yes. So why not treat her to an extra-special gift set? It consists of an eau de parfum (apple martini, rosewood and lavender), body mist and shower gel. A match made in heaven.
Britney Spears Fantasy
When you’re choosing celebrity fragrances, you can’t really get better than Fantasy. Just the notes in the bottle are good enough to eat: lychee, kiwi and white chocolate. See, told you! No more excuses – this will be her new obsession once you buy it for her this Christmas.
