Christmas is all about the spirit of giving, and I think that's why we're so obsessed with fragrance. If you've been shopping for a gift for your loved one this year, then you know just how difficult it can be to pick something out. There are so many options out there! In fact, if you're looking for something new that smells great but isn't too expensive (and most importantly won't break the bank), we've got some suggestions:
Dolce & Gabbana The One Desire
If you're looking for a perfume that will make your heart flutter, The One Desire is the one. The fragrance was launched in 2016 and features notes of peach, passion flower and orange blossom. It's also infused with vanilla.
Olivier Cresp is behind this fragrance creation which has been described as "floral oriental" by reviewers on Fragrantica—although that isn't quite accurate since it's more floral than oriental (though it has some elements of both). It's certainly feminine but still masculine enough to be worn by both women and men alike!
The scent itself is very difficult to describe due to its many layers: there’s something about this particular smell that makes me think of summertime when I wear it around my home after work on Fridays or Saturdays (or whenever else I get an extra few minutes).
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb
This fragrance is a fruity delight with notes of strawberry, raspberry and litchi. The scent is feminine but not too sweet; it's perfectly balanced between sweetness and tartness.
It's great for any woman who wants to feel sexy without being overpowering or wearing something too mainstream. The longevity of this perfume is excellent—it lasts all day long!
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium is a fragrance for women and men. It was launched in 2011. The nose behind this fragrance is Francois Demachy, who has been nominated as a leading perfumer by GQ magazine in France. This fragrance has a combination of musk, leather and vanilla which makes it ideal for the Christmas season.
The name of this perfume comes from its main ingredient: black opium (opium).
Gucci Guilty Absolute
Gucci Guilty Absolute is a floral fragrance for women. It was launched in 2015 and is described as a refreshing, sweet, spicy perfume that combines notes of bergamot, tangerine and mandarin orange.
Gucci Guilty Absolute has been described as "a modern take on the classic citrus-based fragrance". This fragrance contains notes of mandarin orange blossom, juicy pear and jasmine sambac blossoms.
Burberry Her Blossom Eau De Parfum For Her
Burberry Her Blossom Eau De Parfum For Her is a powerful perfume with notes of bergamot, mandarin and peach. The scent is fresh and uplifting, perfect for the holiday season.
