The gift of year-round fresh florals
For a classic approach to florals, Penhaligon’s Duchess Rose is a delicate oriental scent with rose at it’s heart. While for something slightly more modern, Amouage Blossom Love is a soft yet dynamic floral fragrance, with added notes of cherry blossom and vanilla.
The gift of a lasting impression
For an unexpected twist on earthy notes, Haze by who is elijah is an addictive scent inspired by the decadence of the ’70s era of smoke and spice. With heady notes of neroli, orange blossom and Bulgarian rose, Kilian Love Don’t Be Shy Extreme has been said to “smell like heaven,” and will be sure to linger long after she’s left a room.
The gift of the finer things
Giorgio Armani Armani Privé Pivoine Suzhou is a a stunning blend of elegant peony flowers and rose, inspired by the beautiful gardens of Asia. Or for a more sensual oriental scent, Tom Ford Tubérose Nue is inspired by intoxicating night-blooming tuberose.
The gift of brighter days ahead
Carry her away to Italian gardens in the spring with Lumira La Primavera, via top notes of citrus expertly blended with fresh petals of jasmine and lily. Or give her an eternal summer feeling with AERIN Mediterranean Honeysuckle; a fresh fragrance with notes of bright grapefruit and Italian bergamot combined with sweet gardenia and jasmine flowers.
