Are you considering fragrance gifts for her this year? I love getting new perfume and fragrances as gifts. Splurging on a new fragrance is a wonderful way to pamper yourself without spending a lot of money.
I’ll admit that finding new fragrances is a weakness of mine. I love being able to choose from a variety of different scents depending on the occasion. I may choose a different scent based on where I’m going and what I’m doing.
Fragrance gifts can really include several different types of things. There is the traditional bottle of perfume everyone thinks of when they hear the word fragrance. But, you also have body spray, scented lotions, perfume sets, and even cologne for him.
So, here are a few of my favorite fragrance gifts ideas so that you can choose the one you think you’ll love the most.
Perfume gift pack for her
When you buy a perfume gift back, it generally includes the perfume (of course), but you’ll also get an extra. This might be a bottle of scented lotion, a body wash, perfume oil or maybe even a scented candle.
Marc Jacobs Daisy 2-Piece Fragrance Set – From the first whiff, Daisy intoxicates as a fresh violet leaf, uplifting blood grapefruit, and sweet strawberry notes float around you. Floral notes, including captivating gardenia, make up the romantic heart of the fragrance. This set includes an Eau de Toilette Spray and body lotion. Buy it on Amazon.
Dolce & Gabbana The One – This beautiful fragrance for women is elegant and classic, evoking the timeless sense of ages past. Top Notes: Bergamot, Mandarin, Lychee, Peach. Middle Notes: Madonna Lily, Muguet, Plum, Jasmine. Base Notes: Vanilla, Amber, Musk. This 4 Piece Set Includes: 2.5 oz Eau de Parfum Spray + 3.3 oz Perfumed Body Lotion + 0.2 oz Eau de Parfum Spray + 0.21 oz Shimmering Powder. Buy it on Amazon.
Perfume gift sets for him
Of course, there is no reason why the special guy on your gift list wouldn’t enjoy new fragrance gifts as well. While my husband doesn’t wear a lot of different scents, he does have a few favorites.
Atkinsons The Big Bad Cedar – Top notes are cardamom, sage, and broom; middle note is Virginia cedar; base notes are oakmoss and cashmeran. The Big Bad Cedar is a Woody fragrance that is unisex. Buy it on Amazon.
Fragrance gift sets for women
D&G Anthology L’Imperatrice 3 – Flamboyant and energetic, for L’Impératrice life is a movie and she is its heroine. All heads turn when she enters a room. Vibrant, magnetic she exudes charisma and force of character. Top notes: Rhubarb, Red Currant, Juicy Kiwi Accord. Heart notes are Pink Cyclamen, Fresh Watermelon Accord.

Eau de Toilette or Eau de Parfum?
If you’re shopping for fragrance gifts and are wondering about the difference between eau de toilette and eau de parfume, let me explain. The difference lies in the volume of perfume oil. While Eau de Toilette contains 5-9%, Eau de Parfum contains more, usually 8-14%. Eau de Parfums, therefore, last longer and smell more intense. If all of these fragrance terms are confusing to you, here’s a little bit of information on perfume terms that you may find helpful.
More perfume reviews
If you love fragrance gifts as much as I do, you might want to check out a few more of my perfume reviews. Check out Natalie Fragrance for a delicious gardenia based perfume. Or, JLust by JLo perfume is always a popular choice. If you’re looking for a less well-known choice, Harvey Prince Temptress is a wonderful scent you can get in a rollerball for the woman who is always on the go.
