Give them the gift of unforgettable scents with this 2017 fragrance gift guide:
Katy Perry’s Indi – Katy Perry fans are going to love the next generation in the pop stars fragrances. Unlike her old scents, this perfume feels a bit more mature and grown up. This perfume has a strong musk scent that makes it feel like the female version of your boyfriend’s best cologne. It’s not quite masculine, but there isn’t that girly flirty feel to it. It’s really rich, but does fade. The black and white bottle are striking making it a great gift idea.
Clean Skin Eau de Parfum – Clean has redesign their bottles making it the perfect time to share this amazing fragrance line for the holidays. The new bottles are colourful and sleek. They are, pardon the pun, clean. The fragrances themselves still have that same rich, inviting scent that makes you want to wrap yourself up in a fluffy bathrobe.
Maison Martin Margiela Beach Walk Fragrance – If you really want to splurge on someone extra special, this fragrance, or anything from the Replica collection, is where to turn. The line is made of scents meant to replicate scenarios to evoke memories. Beach Walk was the sweetness and saltiness of a day on the beach in the sand. I love that fresh ocean air feel when your spray it. You can’t go wrong with this collection!
Viktor And Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume – Does it get anymore iconic than Flowerbomb? Just the look of this pink box with that black stamp gets me excited. Any lover of floral scents will adore this perfume. It’s also a great scent to transition from girly throwaway scents to classy and elegant designer fragrance.
The idea for the Maison Martin Margiela Replica fragrance line is amazing. Replicate familiar moments and locations in life in a fragrance to help bring you back to those times in your life. Since scent is such a huge trigger for memory, I’m surprised that this is the first luxury brand to do this.
The collection include scents like ‘Flower Market,’ ‘Lazy Sunday Morning,’ and ‘Jazz Club.’ I tried ‘Beach Walk’ to take me back to warmer days on the boardwalk. Beach Walk combines notes of bergamot, lemon, coconut and pepper to replicate that smell.
It’s funny because when I read the ingredients, I was surprised. In my mind, it’s the smell leftover on your skin after a day on the beach. The most prominent smell is the salty ocean spray. It’s a sharp saltiness with a hint of a fresh breeze.
I know how cheesy this all sounds. I probably wouldn’t believe it either, but I swear when you smell Beach Walk you are going to smell all of this too. My only regret is that I don’t have all of the other fragrances. They are all available in rollerballs at Sephora now, so you could get the whole line without a huge investment.
If you still haven’t picked up all your stocking stuffers and are willing to brave a mall in the last few days before Christmas, Sephora is a great place to get little items that are perfect for any beauty addict. Most of them are right by the checkout, so you probably won’t have to do more than stand in a super long line to get to them.
Sephora Collection Breakups To Makeup Holiday Bag
Every girl needs a great makeup bag and these ones are not only super cute and a really good size but they’re also vegan but look and feel like leather. I’ve already swapped out my old bag for this one and I seriously love it.
Bite Beauty Mix And Mingle
This lipstick duo comes in six shade choices (the shade above is Pepper/Café) and is tiny enough to fit in any purse. They’re tiny but pack a major antioxidant punch and are really hydrating.
KAREN WALKER Amber Craft: Mirror Compact
Karen Walker’s Sephora Collection is gorgeous but this Mirror Compact is something that most girls are going to want in their bags. With a tortoise shell patten plated with 24 karat gold, it even comes with a zip pouch so it doesn’t get ruined in your purse.
fresh Suga(RED) Lip Treatment
Most of us already have at least one (or 10) fresh Sugar Lip Treatments in their arsenal but 25% of this one helps (RED) fight AIDS. Plus it’s nearly identical to the original Lip Treatment, so you get soft lips and you’re helping others.
Maison Martin Margiela Replica Lazy Sunday Morning Rollerball
If you haven’t tried any of Maison Martin Margiela’s Replica fragrances, a rollerball is a great way to start. Lazy Sunday Morning is supposed to remind us of silky skin, crumpled linen sheets and fresh laundry and the lily of the valley, patchouli, white musk and iris really do a great job.
