Fragrance Gifts For Her
Lancome Idole – I may have already posted a Lancome Idole review in full but this fragrance is so wonderful it simply had to make it into the Christmas gift guide too. This beautifully presented fragrance has the most eye-catching packaging you’ll see on a fragrance all year.
With a sleek and super slimline bottle and the palest of pink juices encased within, it is an object of true beauty. Thanks to its slimline bottle, Lancome Idole can be easily popped into your handbag for use on the go, or on a night out. Prices: 25ml RRP £48.00 / 50ml RRP £75.00 / 75ml / RRP £85.00. It will also be refillable in selected stores. Link to buy.
The Merchant of Venice Imperial Emerald – Luxury fragrance house The Merchant of Venice has launched an all-new scent to form part of its Murano Exclusive Collection line, Imperial Emerald. Created by perfumer Jordi Fernandez, Imperial Emerald layers Iris, Egyptian Jasmine and Lily of the Valley over a subtle base of White Musk.
The perfume was inspired by the beauty and majesty of the peacock. Native to India and Sri Lanka, for centuries the peacock has been interpreted by different cultures as a symbol of immortality and regal bearing.
This mystical composition is enclosed in a beautifully decorated bottle of over-lapping peacock feathers that interprets the historical traditions of Murano glassmaking, complete with an ornamental peacock feather tassel. The box, meanwhile, is characterised by an elegant peacock with its fanned tail plumage on full display. Priced at £250 for 100ml and available exclusively from Harrods.
Armani Si Passione
Giorgio Armani Sì Passione makes for the perfect Christmas gift for her this festive season. This is an uplifting, sensual and addictive perfume that radiates strength, confidence and seduction. The red lip effect in a bottle, Sì Passione mirrors the same emotions that a swipe of red lipstick can instantly give the wearer – a perfect gift for her.
The perfect Christmas Day fragrance, Sì Passione combines the floral spicy scent of red rose and jasmine with the addictive, powdery tones of Heliotrope, a small, delicate flower with a powerful, enveloping scent of vanilla. Priced at £75 for 50ml and available in all sizes online here (ad. affiliate) and in stores.
Floris London Vert Fougère
Launched in September, Floris’s latest fougère perfume Vert Fougère has all the components for this traditional type of masculine-unisex scent, which is characterised by its herbal and woody facets. Its classic heart note of English and French lavender is given added vibrancy with green galbanum and bergamot, with whispers of patchouli, cashmere and cedarwood adding soft, smoky depth, enveloping the wearer like a cosy blanket.
“Vert Fougère is an ‘all day’ scent – not overly outspoken or loud, like some perfumes that you would only wear on special occasions. We used materials such as Texan and Chinese cedarwood, along with patchouli to create a smoky effect. It’s original, but cosy and comfortable – and very contemporary.”
Yet, Vert Fougère is extremely wearable, making for an ideal signature scent and the perfect finishing touch to a smart blazer, cashmere scarf and mohair sweater dress. Price: Eau de Parfum 100ml. Priced at £120 from florislondon.com
