When it comes to finding that perfect Christmas gift, a fragrance can create memories that last a lifetime.
Fragrances have the power to evoke memories and can even inspire you to be the person you want to be. Take the recent launch of Chanel Gabrielle, the perfume takes inspiration from Coco Chanel’s roots when she was called Gabrielle, a rebel at heart, passionate and free, who fought to become the woman she wanted to be. The casting of actress Kirsten Stewart in its advertising campaign, creates the muse for the fragrance, a signature scent for those who want to stand out from the crowd.
While the stories behind the scent can tempt you to buy into a certain fragrance, there is nothing more powerful than developing your own. My favourite fragrance when the weather turns colder is Tom Ford Black Orchid. It takes me back to when this fragrance was launched and at the time it was so powerful, a real statement scent, it kept selling out. Today it is surrounded by other dramatic scents, but for me it still feels luxurious and glamorous.
So what’s their favourite scent? If they haven’t found it yet, or want a fragrance that is just that little bit different to the mainstream trends, here are just some of the niche fragrances we have instore and online that will make great Christmas gifts. You never know, one of them could become their new signature scent.
