Spoil them with liquid love.
The holidays are made of sugar, spice, and everything nice—and so are our favorite fragrances. From sweet to exotic, we have perfumes and colognes that make unforgettable gifts. Surprise your best friend, mother dearest, and the lucky coworker who snagged you as their Secret Santa with a scent—and they’ll be thanking you until they spray its final drop. JESSICA VELEZ
The Person: Cubical comrade
The Scene: Secret Santa
You’re all too familiar with your coworker’s weakness for red velvet macarons and her vacation stories from the South of France. But, do you know if she prefers notes of spicy ginger or Haitian vetiver? That’s the beauty of gifting a sampler set of Atelier Cologne’s sensual fragrances. She’s destined to love at least one scent from this eight-piece collection—especially Vanille Insensée, Orange Sanguine, or Sud Magnolia.
The Person: BFF
The Scene: Hot cocoa and ice skating date
Between your jewelry designing hobby and her yoga and brunch blog, it’s not often you get to catch up with your bestie. So planning a festive girlfriend date where you sip velvety hot chocolate and then hit blades on the ice is the perfect way to meet up before the holidays get too hectic. When you swap presents, have her unwrap the Nirvana White Gift Set so she can experience its musky peony and muguet aroma. And if you have Nirvana Black, you’ll now have complementary BFF scents.
The Person: Mom
The Gift: Chloé Signature Gift Set
The Scene: Holiday Dinner
Your mom made your favorite pudding (butterscotch) and even remembered you’re allergic to pears, leaving them out of the salad this year. You could offer to do the dishes to say thanks, but why not take it one step further? The Chloé Signature Gift Set is a beloved modern classic with notes of rose, honey, and amber, and she’ll think of this special night with you every time she wears it.
