So for December’s My 5 Favourite Finds I thought I would do something a little bit different and share with you My 5 Favourite Festive Fragrances or Fragrances for the Festive Season!
tills, sorry bells, are ringing and what better time of the year to talk about perfume! Fragrance is such a stunning gift to receive as it lasts for a lifetime…. OK the bottle may finish but what lasts are the memories associated with that particular perfume. Certain of my favourite fragrances take me back years every time I get a whiff – and I’m right back in another place or with a particular person. I love that about fragrance. Buying a perfume can also be such a personal purchase – be it for yourself or that the person who bought the scent for you chose it for a reason!
Here are a few of my recent favourits finds in the world of fragrance…
Sexy Amber Eau de Parfum by Michael Kors
DKNY Be Delicious Skin Eau de Toilette Spray – 100% Pure New York & Fresh Blossom
Fruity & Floral
Elizabeth Arden Untold Eau de Parfum Spray
Gossip Girl XOXO Eau de Toilette Spray
This fragrance is light and bright, perfect for those looking to capture the scent of youth! XOXO is floral and fruity with the sweet top notes of blueberry, candied rose and lily after which the scent settles to a softer musk scent. The soft scent lasts for 3 – 4 hours. The bottle comes with a cute charm too so would make a perfect gift for the teenage girl in your life. R295 – R445.
Hugo XX by Hugo Boss
There you have it 5 of my favourite fragrances. I’m a huge perfume fan so to select only 5 was very hard but my collection is growing nicely so maybe I’ll do a similar post each season!! I hope you will be lucky enough to find one of these under the tree come next week! Let me know which is your favourite festive fragrance in the comments section below…
P.S. I know I’m a bit behind the times with My 5 Favourite Find posts for Oct and Nov…. promise they will be here soon!
