FRAGRANCE GIFT GUIDE


To me perfume has always been a gift that I love to give and receive. Some people find it a daunting task to choose a fragrance for someone else, as it can be a very personal preference. But to me that also means it's something that can bring someone a lot of happiness and a gift that keeps on giving. They'll have it for at least months after, and who knows, maybe the scent you chose for them will become their new signature. Allow me to tempt you with some of my current favorites; there's really something for everyone in this edit.

Maison Margeila Lipstick On - The perfect scent for the beauty lover - it's reminiscent of the smell of lipstick and soft powders - the notes that would fill a small room while a woman is getting ready. Such a unique scent, and one that smells better the longer it's worn. 

Maison Margeila By the Fireplace - If you're a fan of the smell of firewood in the winter, this is that memory, bottled. I imagine being in the Alps, nose pressed to the window watching the snow as the smokey, cozy smell of embers fill the chalet. 

Jo Malone Mimosa & Cardamom - A warm, inviting floral oriental. The fragrance includes delicate notes of honeyed golden mimosa flowers and spicy crushed cardamom and ends on a smooth, creamy shot of tonka bean.

Tom Ford Amber Absolute - A rare scent infused with fumes of African incense. Tom Ford's signature amber accord is grounded with a salty warmth and rich labdanum. Notes of addictive patchouli, golden woods, and sandalwood are made smooth and inviting with a touch of vanilla. This is one of those scents that makes you want to get closer; one they'll all ask about.

Byredo Gypsy Water - A longtime favorite of mine, it smells like a free-spirited woman might; warm, spicy, a bit earthy - as though she'd been in the woods by a campfire. To me, there's nothing quite like it, and one I always gravitate on days I want to be comfortable and warm. Notes of bergamot, lemon, pepper, juniper berries, incense, pine needles, orris, amber, vanilla, and sandalwood are reminiscent of the Romany lifestyle.

Carven Le Parfum - Fresh, charming, floral. A fragrance that sparkles; it smells clean and floral but is also memorable. Jasmine, neroli, ylang ylang, sweet pea, and sandalwood create a scent that lingers on the skin with warmth and freshness.

Jimmy Choo Illicit - Glamorous, addictive, sexy. A very alluring fragrance for a confident, strong woman who is a risk taker. It's adventurous and flirty all while being very sophisticated, with notes of rose, jasmine, honeyed-amber, and sandalwood.
