Holiday Gift Guide 2016 : Her Fragrances

December 20, 2016

Hey loves! Just five more days until Christmas. Are you still shopping for last minute presents? On today’s post, I wanted to share you my top 5 perfumes that I use throughout the whole year. I switch them up depending on my mood. It just so happened that my favorite perfumes are in gold and pink packaging. Favorite colors, YES! I don’t know about you but if I get a perfume for Christmas, I’m happy! An easy to find gift that I’m sure your mom, sister, aunt, co-worker, BFF, every girl from your list pretty much would appreciate. I usually go to Macy’s, Ulta and Sephora for my perfumes.

CHANEL CHANCE Eau de Toilette

This perfume is on the pricey side but hey, it’s Chanel, that’s already expected. It could be a little bit heavy and overwhelming but it really just depends on your preference. I wear this mostly on occasions where I have to dress up and on cold season. It has a really sophisticated, classy and seductive scent that last for a long time. Definitely my top favorite!

Price: $78 for 1.7 oz

Ariana Grande Sweet Like Candy Eau de Parfum

It’s seriously the cutest perfume packaging I’ve ever seen! It definitely screams Ariana’s seductively sweet, fun and sexy personality. This perfume is mixed with a luscious burst sugar-frosted blackberry and juicy Italian bergamot sparkle with delicious addiction, while velvety layers of creme de cassis, fluffy marshmallow and sexy vanilla. Phew! That’s a lot. It has a sweet scent but not over the top and it’s long lasting. I get compliments whenever I wear this perfume. LOVE!

Price: $49 for 1.7 oz

Twirl by Kate Spade

Quite a classic perfume by Kate Spade! This one would be harder to find if you were to go in an actual retail store but it’s still around and can be found in Amazon and other e-commerce sites. It’s mixed with pink watermelon, blackberry and red currant. Enhanced with a heart of fresh flowers including orange blossom, star jasmine, tiare flower and sweet magnolia. Finished with luminous musks and a touch of french macaron. To sum it all up, this perfume has a fruity with a hint of floral scent that is perfect for spring/summer. It’s wonderful, light and long lasting.

Price: $36-40 for 1.7 oz

Philosophy “Love Sweet Love”

Same story for this one, it will be hard to find in retail stores but if you order it online, there shouldn’t be any problem. I first tried this perfume from a sample I received from Ipsy Glam Bag. I fell in love with it and bought the full size version. It has a mix of grapefruit, floral notes, mango, fruity notes and musk. I guess I’m into fruity and floral scents, huh? I love how girly and clean this perfume smells. Perfect for everyday use.

Price: $30 for 2 oz

COACH Eau de Parfum by Coach

You can find this perfume at Ulta Beauty. Inspired by the spontaneous energy and downtown style of New York City. A fragrance full of contrasts, opening with bright, sparkling raspberry, giving way to creamy Turkish roses, before drying down to a sensual suede musk base. Can the packaging of this perfume get any classier? The spray cap is shaped like agold turnlock just the like signature clasp on Coach bags. A spray goes a long way and I must say great staying power! This perfume can definitely make you feel sexy, sensual, flirty and playful.

Price: $75 for 1.7 oz

Do you own or have smelled any of the perfumes I included in this post? Which perfume intrigues you the most?
I hope this post helped you with your last-minute gift shopping! Xoxo ?

    We are like perfume twins. I love all of these and feel the same about them all. I prefer the Chanel, it makes me feel elegant and sophisticated, none of which I am!

    I think I need to try Twirl by Kate Spade. I need to use fragrance more often, for sure!

    Chance was once one of my favorite perfumes. I went through three of them, if you can believe it! But then I learned that those fancy perfumes have harmful preservatives and very bad artificial fragrances and switched to more natural perfumes. At least I hope they are as “natural” as they claim…

    I don’t think I have tried any of those perfumes out. I have so many samples that I haven’t purchased a full size bottle in so long. These make me miss seeing the beautiful glass bottle on my vanity.
