Fragrance Gift Guide


Happy Monday!  How about a fragrance gift guide?  We know that picking out a fragrance for someone can be a bit scary, so we hope these two suggestions will help you along the way.  We narrowed down our lists for a fragrance for her and something for him.

Fragrance For Her

My fragrance suggestion for her is the Prada Candy Florale.  If you have smelled the original Prada candy, you know that this perfume is a really sweet smell.  I opted for something a bit lighter and a little fresher.  It’s perfect for those who love sweet, florally scents, that are very light.

Prada’s latest fragrance evolved from the concept of an imaginary flower created especially for Candy. Of course, Candy cannot simply have any flower. Her fantasy flower must be unique, embodying her many facets: the fragrance’s light airiness puts the sparkle in her, followed by tender powdery notes that echo her Spring-like grace. A final whisper of warmth and honey reflects Candy’s rich sensuality.

With three different sizes, this perfume can go from affordable to expensive.  Depending on where you purchase the fragrance from, you can get a percentage off and/or gift with purchase, especially this time of year.  This gift is perfect for a close friend, sister, and/or cousin.  As stated, fragrances are very personal,  you would need to know the person very well to pick out a perfume for them or know that it is something they actually wanted.

Fragrance For Him

I think purchasing a cologne for a man is a lot harder than purchasing a perfume for a woman.  In my experience, guys are super picky when it comes to the type of colognes they like.  For example, my father likes Acqua Di Gio, but only the deodorant stick- weird, right?  Well, I chose L’envol De Cartier.  It’s a more woodsy type cologne that isn’t too musky or strong.  I think it would smell great on most men.

L’Envol de Cartier Eau de Parfum is an airy, woody fragrance that empowers you to go beyond your limits. The nectar is imbued with Gaiac Wood and notes of honey, brought out by a wispy haze of musk. The 100 ml size is refillable thanks to the capsule, which can be removed from the glass dome.

This cologne is perfect for any man in your life, but I would aim it for a boyfriend/husband/fiance or brother.  Someone, you know very intimately, so you can make the right decision on the scent.  Although Cartier is a very luxury brand, you can find this cologne for as little as $50, making this cologne very affordable.

Alright, that’s it for tonight.  Check back later for my hair gift guide, stocking stuffers, and teen gift guide!
