Five gift-able fragrances
Written by Oryx
As the year draws to a close, fragrances all vie for our attention. Whoever you’re buying for, keep these scents in mind.
Armani Privé Pivione Suzhou Soie de Nacre
Inspired by one of China’s most captivating gardens, where the peony reigns supreme, this limited edition version of the fine fragrance features silky nacre flakes to enhance its sublime luxury. With notes such as mandarin and pink pepper, combined with amber, this fragrance has a decidedly oriental feel.
My Burberry Limited Edition
For a limited run, Burberry’s iconic fragrance is available in shimmering gold packaging featuring gold flakes and a gabardine knot. Gift givers also have the option of adding up to three monogrammed initials on the larger 90ml bottle of this unforgettable fragrance. Featuring top notes of sweet pea and bergamot fused with a heart of geranium, golden quince, and freesia, this scent is rounded out with base notes of rain-tipped damask, centifolia roses, and patchouli. My Burberry is also available in an equally iridescent shimmering body oil.
Two of Tom Ford’s most iconic fragrances, Oud Wood and Noir Extreme, are being offered in sleek gift sets this month. The former features the eau de parfum and an aftershave balm, while the latter includes a body moisturiser along with the signature cologne. In typical Tom Ford fashion, the packaging is elegant and streamlined with incredible attention to detail.
By Kilian Arabian Nights
Luxury perfumer By Kilian channels the Arabian Nights with its collection of five ouds, ranging in olfactive profiles from incense to amber. But what truly sets this collection apart is its fully customisable crystal carafes – gift givers can choose a tassel shape and colour and a cap metal finish. The carafe can easily be refilled with any fragrance from the Arabian Nights collection.
Jo Malone London
Another iconic British brand with incredible gift offerings is the always-customisable Jo Malone, whose scents can also be layered, offering endless options to the wearer. From the Pine & Eucalyptus home scents to the brand’s lauded Cologne Intense collection, there is a host of combinations. Each lovely gift box is adorned with holiday packaging featuring a diamond pattern inspired by the light-hearted theatrical antics of the Harlequinade.
