Since this is the time of the year when everyone is trying to find a gift, I wanted to share my ideas for fragrances for gifts for 2019. All the fragrances in this post are aimed towards women, with a men’s list coming soon.
Viktor&Rolf’s FlowerBom is a very popular fragrance that many women love. Like the name suggests, one of the main scents of FlowerBom is flowers, but instead of using one flower’s scent, there are four different flower’s scents. In addition to the flowers, vanilla and patchouli complete the fragrance notes in FlowerBom. This fragrance would be a great gift for a woman who love floral fragrances but does not want it to be overpowering.
Dior’s Miss Dior
Miss Dior is a classic fragrance that many love, but some do not. The reason is because every so often, Dior changes the fragrance of Miss Dior. For 2019, Miss Dior’s fragrance notes are calabrian bergamot, grasse rose absolute, guyana rosewood, and pink peppercorn. If the fragrance notes do not appease the recipient, try the other fragrances in the Miss Dior line such as the Eau de Toilette, Blooming Bouquet, Absolutely Blooming, and bottles of the original fragrance of Miss Dior, available on Dior’s official website.
Chanel No 5
Chanel No 5 is a classic fragrance that many women love. Fragrance notes are aldehydes, aasmine, neroli, and sandalwood. Unlike Miss Dior, Chanel No 5’s fragrance notes never changed since it was created in the 1920’s, but if the recipient of the fragrance does not like the original Chanel No 5, there are other fragrances in the Chanel No 5 line to pick from.
Giorgio Armani Si
Giorgio Armani’s Si is a beautiful fragrance that I love very much. The fragrance notes for Si are blackcurrant nectar, modern chypre, and blond wood musk. The fragrance is very elegant but light enough to not be overpowering. Although Si is a beautiful fragrance, there are other scents in Armani’s Si line to pick from including Si Passionate and Si Parfume Intense.
YSL Black Opium Nuit Blanche
Saint Laurent’s Black Opium Nuit Blanche is my favorite winter fragrance on this list. Fragrance notes for it are pink pepper, basmati rice, orange blossom, peony accord, vanilla, coffee, white musks, sandalwood essence, almond milk. Although the fragrance could be quite overpowering, it is actually very light and, despite it not being an extremely strong scent, I found it wears very well and stays on the skin all day. This fragrance is perfect for anyone who loves darker scents for winter, but do not want it to be overpowering and still feminine.
