What's better than getting a new fragrance for the holidays? Getting a gorgeous gift box full of scented goodness!
There's just something magical about receiving a perfume gift set with beautiful packaging, a variety of products to try, and of course wonderfully-smelling fragrances.
These are the very best of the bunch to gift this holiday season!
Gucci Bloom is a delightful fragrance in and of itself, but this gift set really takes it up a notch. The packaging, which echoes the botanical print of the perfume bottle, is a gorgeous piece on its own. And with an eau de parfum spray and a rollerball, you can always have this floral scent on hand.
Channel the brilliance of Cartier's stunning diamonds with this fragrance, aptly named Carat. The bottle resembles a sparkling diamond and is display-worthy. Scent-wise, this perfume is as intricately layered as a rainbow, with a fresh overall scent.
If shopping for someone who loves all things sweet and feminine, they will adore Burberry's Her fragrance. Inspired by the London lady, this perfume features fruity notes like berries and jasmine, with a musk-amber base for an added touch of sensuality. The set includes a perfume bottle, body lotion, and travel spray.
They say smell is the scent most connected to memory, so it only makes sense that the different fragrances in this Maison Margiela set can stir up memories of specific places and times. Beach Walk, for example, uses coconut and pink pepper to conjure up the feeling of a morning beach stroll, while Jazz Club smells like the cocktails and cigars of a downtown club. Anyone who likes an out-of-the-box perfume will appreciate this gift.
Marc Jacobs' Daisy perfume bottle is one of the most gorgeous creations around, and it alone is enough to be thankful for! Of course, the perfume is quite lovely too, with a fresh scent that is perfect for everyday wear. The gift set comes with an eau de toilette spray, rollerball, and body lotion.
Know someone who likes their home to smell as lovely as their perfume? Why not gift a perfume and candle combo, like this one from Skylar? I'm a big fan of Skylar's crisp perfumes, and I love that you can mix and match the perfume and candle fragrances you pick. My advice: snag the limited-edition Sprinkles Cupcake candle while you can—it smells like cinnamon and is great for winter.
No wrapping required with this pretty gift box! Inside, uncover a 100ml perfume bottle, 10ml travel spray, and miniature perfume bottle in the same bowtie bottle as its larger counterpart. You'll love the sweet, floral scent of this signature Dior fragrance.
If you're shopping for someone who likes to change their signature scent on the daily, consider gifting a set with several scents. This rollerball trio features three scents from NEST's perfume line. My favorite is Citrine, a soft citrus scent, but they all smell divine. This would make a wonderful stocking stuffer!
If you're a fan of Chloé's elegant purses, you'll love the Nomade set. This trio of perfume bottles evokes the shape of Chloé's curved bags. The perfume also echoes the free-spirited, bohemian vibes of the brand's ready-to-wear offerings, with notes of mirabelle plum and freesia.
