One must never underestimate the power of scent. Fragrances have the ability to evoke all sorts of feelings and emotions with one simple spritz. A single note of an EDP or EDT could take you down memory lane, where you’re reminded of a loved one or special occasion, and instantly lift your mood. We’ve carefully curated our favourite festive fragrances to bring you some extra cheer this time of year.
Guess Bella Vita Paradiso Eau De Parfum
How gorgeous is this golden Guess EDP? If we had a piece of string, we’d try to hang it on our Christmas tree because it’s that glitzy and glam. If you love the Bella Vita range, you have to add this to your collection. This amber floral scent embodies a “sun-kissed Italian paradise in a bottle” feeling and we’re here to whole-heartedly agree. Close your eyes and envision these notes with every whiff: Italian mandarin, pear blossom, red fruits, gardenia, tuberose, jasmine, amber, patchouli and musk.
Coach Green Gift Set
Yes, this scent is as fresh as it looks. With crisp top notes of green apple, grapefruit and bergamot, mixed with middle notes of musk, cedarwood and jasmine, this EDT is ideal for any man in your life who enjoys an easy-wearing, masculine and super-clean scent. It eventually settles into a woody base of amber, patchouli and sandalwood. We also love that this set includes a 15ml version of Coach Green EDT, along with a full-sized 100ml, and a shower gel to lock in the scent. Delish.
Kate Spade Cherie Eau De Parfum
Presenting one of the most exciting fragrance launches of 2023 – Kate Spade Cherie EDP. This Christmas wish list-worthy scent belongs to the woody floral musk variety and makes us smile whenever we smell it. Raspberry, mandarin orange and red currant notes are the stars of the show, followed by sweet pea and jasmine in the heart of the scent. Musk and white woods make up the addictive base. It’s sheer perfection in a bottle.
Tom Ford Myrrh Mystère Eau De Parfum
There’s a reason why myrrh was a gift from the Three Wise Men – Tom Ford’s Myrrh Mystère EDP is everything you’ve dreamed of and more when it comes to a fragrance. You can’t help but notice the striking ultra-vanille accord that comes through once you spray this seductive scent. It’s rich, heady and 100% a signature scent. Yours, perhaps?
Elizabeth Arden Red Door Eau De Toilette Combination Set
There’s something about Elizabeth Arden’s iconic Red Door EDT that puts us in the mood for decorating the tree, ripping off wrapping paper and having Christmas movies on repeat. Perhaps it’s the bucket-list aspect of spending a snowy Christmas in New York. Who knows. This show-stopping scent was created in 1989 and continues to be timeless with her luxurious collection of notes: think ylang-ylang, red rose, orchid, jasmine, orange blossom, honey and sandalwood.
Jo Malone London Ginger Biscuit Home Candle
What would a festive fragrance list be without a Jo Malone London candle? Incomplete, that’s what. Add the finishing touch to your home this holiday period with one (or more) of these uber-luxe candles from the Ginger Biscuit range. Light one in your living room to ignite the Christmas spirit, or better yet, next to your bath to wind down after a busy festive period.
