Hello to all fragrance lovers. There are so many fragrances that can be given as gifts. I’ve put together a few that have proven to be favourites among my clients. Have fun finding that perfect scent for the special people in your life, and I will see you on the other side of the New Year with the offerings for 2023. 

Jimmy Choo • I Want Choo Forever

After the fantastic success of I Want Choo, Jimmy Choo has now launched the new I Want Choo Forever. It is an intoxicating and sensual fragrance that is guaranteed to get attention. Fragrance companies are beginning to add spirits to scents, and Jimmy Choo Forever is no exception. It is a fruity-floral-gourmand fragrance with notes of black cherry liquor, oakmoss, amber, vanilla, and Jasmin. Ladies, when you wear this alluring fragrance, get ready to be chased!

Oscar De La Renta • Alibi Eau De Toilette

Alibi Eau De Parfum was called the most glamorous fragrance for 2022. Oscar has released the new Alibi Eau De Toilette, which will be a fabulous addition to your holiday fragrance collection. It is a beautiful light, subtle fragrance that can definitely be worn every day. It is a gorgeous feminine scent that will certainly get compliments. Notes of pear, mandarin, white wood, and amber make this a fragrance choice for all ages.

Kate Spade • Sparkle

Kate Spade is known for its fun vibe, bold colours, and unique designs. The bottle design is certainly on brand. The bottle represents the shimmering lights of New York City at night. It has been described as an addictive floral gourmand scent with notes of lemon, cedar, pink pepper, and crème brulée.

Coach • Blue

The luxury brand Coach, known for its beautiful leather handbags and accessories, has entered the world of fragrances for men and women. I have enjoyed wearing Coach Man and was looking forward to trying the new Coach Blue. It is a modern and elegant fragrance for men. The woody-aromatic fragrance with notes of sage, sandalwood, apple, patchouli, and leather will be a favourite addition to any man’s scent collection.

Missoni Pour Home • Eau de Parfum 

The luxury fashion house of Missoni has also entered the Fragrance World with beautiful classic scents. I absolutely love this scent and have enjoyed sharing it with my clients. It is a fragrance that is not overpowering and should give you a good seven hours of wear. Missoni Pour Homme belongs to the woody-aromatic family and has lavender, apple, musk, birch, and sandalwood notes.

Montblanc • Red Legend Eau de Parfum 

Montblanc is an amazing luxury French brand recognized worldwide that exudes elegance and craftsmanship. Montblanc says this new fragrance brings a vibrant touch to the Montblanc collection. This fragrance will have people asking, “What scent are you wearing?”  The notes of blood orange, sage, cedar, and grapefruit will make this a favourite this season.
