A perfume is an unseen and unforgettable accessory. It is the one thing that completes your outfit. A lot of times people may not remember what you wore but they sure do remember the perfume you were wearing. Thus a bit of fragrance can go a long way for anyone. A perfume is also a very personal item to gift. That’s why it is a great gift for a woman, perhaps on her Birthday. There are so many different types of perfumes. But a special woman deserves something extra. I’ve picked a few of my all time favourite scents which are nothing short of heavenly.
Jimmy Choo is one of the pioneers when it comes to shoes and accessories. Perfume is one such accessory you cannot live without and they have aced that game too. Jimmy Choo L’Eau is a new addition to the signature collection. It captures the scents of the hibiscus flower combined with the citrusy freshness of bergamot. The top notes are enhanced by the delicate rose scent which lingers into the vibrant trail of cedar wood. It’s a great blend of fruity and musky tone which gives it a very sensual personality. The packaging is also sleek. It comes in a transparent elongated glass bottle and is available nationwide. It’s a good gifting option even for your wife or girlfriend.
Jimmy Choo has also come up with gift sets. Add a touch of pink and show anyone how special she is by gifting her gift set from Jimmy Choo. They have developed 2 lovely gift sets; Jimmy Choo Original EDP and Illicit Flower EDT. Both sets include a 60ml fragrance and complimentary 100ml Body Lotion.
I tried the Illicit Flower gift set and it’s a great scent for everyday or office. With apricots and mandarin orange as the top notes, grapefruit blossom, jasmine, rose as the middle notes and sandalwood, musk and vanilla as the base note the perfume has a floral yet woody smell. It’s a good gift set if you aren’t sure what type of smell the other person would like. However, it’s only available in selected stores so you may have to hunt for it.
For the glamorous diva, the Elie Saab Resort Limited Edition is an exceptionally great fragrance with a blend of fruity and floral notes. The red mandarin in the top noted gives a twist to fragrance when combined with pomegranate nectar, orange blossom and jasmine. The base notes of patchouli give a lingering and long-lasting fragrance. The bottle is adorned in catchy shades of pink which makes it look very attractive and distinct. This red carpet inspired beauty is available nationwide and makes for an enchanting gift for anyone.
