xmas 2017 | choosing fragrance


Firstly, I want to say I am so excited that Halloween is now over, and we can all officially start our Christmas countdown! Okay... maybe not a countdown, but still. I'M EXCITED!



Year in, year out, I enjoy literally everything about the weeks leading up Christmas, but I think my all-time favourite thing about the festive season is all the time I get to spend with my family and friends, making plans for the festive season and celebrating all together. It feels like we all find just a little bit more time for each other, and the pinnacle of it all is exchanging gifts with each other on the big day - it’s just so personal, and so satisfying. Let’s face it though, gifts are nowhere near the be all and end all of Christmas, but I get such a warm, fuzzy feeling when I know I’ve just handed my loved one a gift they'll love and seeing their face light up!

One of my fave gifts to give at Christmas is definitely fragrance. Not only is it one of the most fuss-free gifts to go for, there’s also literally a scent to suit everyone out there! Fragrance tastes are so unique, and differ so much from person to person, so I thought I’d share a few of my recent ‘for her’ faves to inspire you all! I think I definitely have a type when it comes to fragrance!

Marc Jacobs – Decadence

I was kindly sent a new bottle of this from Fragrance Direct, and fell in love with it all over again!
Everything about this fragrance screams ‘luxury’! From the decadent emerald bottle with the gold chain, to its beautifully sexy woody notes. The fragrance is very rich and smooth, and smells super high end. It always last so well on me, and I can’t go a day wearing it without someone asking what scent I’m wearing.

Boss – The Scent

A recent discovery for me, this fragrance by Boss is unlike anything I’ve ever worn! I would get so many compliments whenever I wore this, so I had to add it to this round up! The bottle is so beautiful, but the scent is even better!
It’s a sexy scent that I love to wear when going out on special occasions or when Rich and I go out for a romantic meal! It seems to last for soooo long, which is something I always look for in a fragrance. It’s sophisticatedly fruity, with a deep warm sweetness. I personally love it during the colder months too!

Chloe – Signature

This is another beauty that is ALWAYS on my dressing table, so you can imagine my excitement when Fragrance Direct sent me this one too! (I know, lucky lass!)
This one is a super-feminine scent, and if I had to describe it in one word, it’d be ‘chic’! It’s definitely a more floral fragrance, with a little bit of classic fruitiness!
Throughout the day, you definitely get a few warmer notes in there too. Perfection!
I'd love to hear about your favourite fragrances to give to your nearest & dearest! Let me know about any of your suggestions in the comments below! x
