Perfume is a fail-safe Christmas present and to save you wading through a sea of scents, we’ve tried and tested lots to come up with the ultimate Christmas perfume list.
Bottega Veneta EDP
The leather handbag label’s first perfume, this scent is both decadent and subtle. Smells like real leather – in a good way.
Tom Ford White Patchouli
After years of average celebrity endorsed perfumes, trust Tom Ford to get it right. This deep complex patchouli scent is simply heavenly – one spritz at the Tom Ford counter and you’ll be won over too. €55, Brown Thomas.
Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia
Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia smells of just-ripe pears, blended with delicate white florals mixed with woody Patchouli – a fresh autumnal perfume and a favourite in the WhatSheWears office since it hit the shops last year. €80, 100ml, Brown Thomas.
In fact any of the Jo Malone scents make great presents – the smaller 30ml bottles make great stocking fillers and birthday presents – a gift any woman is proud to carry in her handbag.
Hermès Kelly Calèche
Hermès Kelly Calèche perfume promises to evoke the soft leather smell of Hermès handbags with subtle floral accents, this is a feminine fragrance with universal appeal. €74.50 Brown Thomas.
Beckham signature is one of the many fragrances David and Victoria Beckham have created under the dvb fragrances brand. A complex woody scent, this is a subtle yet sexy smell for your man’s Christmas stocking.
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
Vetiver is a plant extract used in aromatherapy and in Tom Ford Grey Vetiver it’s a smoky, woody scent. And as with a Tom Ford suit, this fragrance is classic, manly and stylish. €60, Brown Thomas.
So get out there and inhale.Tweet
