Make sure that you’re smelling of roses this Christmas

You don’t have many shopping days left before Christmas and if you’re still stuck for that special gift, or even just a last minute stocking filler, then there’s not much time left to get yourself sorted in time for Christmas Eve.

But of course, a late gift doesn’t always mean a rushed gift without any thought. After all, there are plenty of great, thoughtful gifts at, especially now that there is up to a third off on some top designer fragrances.

Fragrances are at the very heart of Christmas. Frankincense and Myrrh, gifts brought by the three wise men, are still used today in some cultures as incense or fragrance, as well as a form of herbal remedy. Today of course, the fragrances that we give as gifts are somewhat more modern, with a huge choice of smells, names and styles on offer to suit all tastes.

We’ll start with one of our best sellers – Jean Paul Gaultier Ladies 100ml EDT Perfume.

Jean Paul Gaultier combines seductiveness and strength with this daring fragrance, which claims to be the scent of an imperious woman with sensual curves. The signature bottle should probably be a clue to that.

The fragrance uses a top note of rose tenderness that is spiced up by the freshness of star anise, a sweet spicyness of orange blossom in combination with ginger’s aphrodisiac notes and a caressing sensuality of vanilla and amber wood supply the base note.

At £58, this fragrance also comes with £7 off for a limited time and it is proving popular – so don’t miss out.

Alternatively, why not try Vera Wang Princess ladies 30ml EDT? This radiant and enchanting scent, rich with vanilla, is positively brimming with exotic flowers and succulent fruits.

Sparkling with the captivating aroma of delicate apples and dreamy water lily, kissed by golden apricot and mandarin meringue and featuring notes of ripe pink guava, Tahitian tiare flower, wild tuberose and dark chocolate, this fragrance really does entice your senses.

But if you’re looking for something a little more fun, with a classic touch of retro, then this Betty Boop Fragrance Gift Set could be the perfect choice.

Presented in a stylish gift box, the set contains 30ml Betty Boop Aint She Cute EDT and 150ml Shimmer Spritz body lotion – all guaranteed to raise a smile on the face of that special someone.

The 30ml EDT comes in a superbly 1930s styled bottle featuring a figurine of Betty Boop herself that you’ll want to keep long after the fragrance has run out.

This is perfect for any woman getting ready for a night out, leaving her looking stunning and smelling divine.
