9 Fragrance Gifts You Can’t Go Wrong With

When you’re on the hunt for a failsafe Christmas present that’s guaranteed to impress, you can’t go wrong with a perfume, candle, or fragrance gift set. Fragrance is something we so rarely buy for ourselves, so whether you’re shopping for him, her, or them, it’s the perfect opportunity to give a little luxury

Choosing a scent for someone else can be daunting, but with options ranging from classic Estee Lauder and Clinique perfumes through to Ariana Grande’s TikTok-famous Cloud, and Aesop’s niche fragrances, there really is something for everyone – even the very very hard to buy for. 

Scroll down to discover our edit of the best smelling fragrance gifts you can give. 

1. Ariana Grande Cloud Gift Set

Anyone who spends time on TikTok will know that Cloud is hailed as a dupe for a much more expensive perfume, and as someone who’s tried both, I can confirm the similarity. Simultaneously floral and fruity, this super sweet fragrance has notes of bergamot, vanilla, and musk. 

2. Who Is Elijah The Collective

Shopping for someone who’s always on the go? This handy gift set features extra large (10ml) travel size versions of Who Is Elijah’s bestselling fragrances – perfect for using while on holiday or for keeping in a handbag. We’re particularly obsessed with His/Her, a light, musky scent which smells unique on everyone.

3. Laboratory Perfumes Lifestyle Set

If you’re shopping for a perfume obsessive or someone who is particularly fussy when it comes to fragrance, then a set with multiple options is probably a safer bet than a single bottle. This Laboratory Perfumes collection features five nature-inspired fragrances. There’s guaranteed to be a scent for everyone.

4. Aesop Gloam

Have a friend who always likes to be ahead of the trends? For those who like niche and unconventional fragrances, Aesop’s unisex perfumes never disappoint. The latest launch, Gloam, is a rich, spicy take on floral with mimosa, saffron, iris, and jasmine. It’s surprisingly sweet and powdery, but warms up on the skin. 

5. Ghost The Fragrance Gift Set

Ghost was one of the most iconic fragrances of the Noughties – if you know someone who’s already a fan, they’ll love this set, which not only includes a full-size perfume but also a Ghost-scented candle. 

6. Clinique Have A Little Happy Perfume Gift Set

Clinique Happy is a refreshing burst of spicy, citrus, and green notes. It smells like summer in a bottle and it’s a failsafe gifting move. This set includes both a perfume spray and a body cream – ideal for layering. 

7. Sol de Janeiro Beija Flor Body Boost

Sol de Janeiro has launched some super cute gift sets this year. We particularly love the look (and smell) of this one, which is guaranteed to be a crowd-pleaser for Sol de Janeiro obsessives. Inside the gift box you’ll find a body wash, body cream, and body mist – in the bestselling Cheirosa ’68 scent.

8. Estee Lauder Beautiful Magnolia 2-Piece Gift Set

Bag mega brownie points from Beautiful Magnolia fans with this limited edition fragrance set, which contains both full and travel size editions of the perfume. A perfume classic, Beautiful Magnolia is a light, musky floral with notes of gardenia and sandalwood (trust us, it smells great). 

9. NEOM Perfect Peace 3-Wick Candle

The launch of NEOM’s Christmas candles is always a great day in the beauty calendar. They’re long-lasting, have great throw, and the scents never fail to delight. This year we’re obsessed with Perfect Peace, a calming (but festive!) blend of pine, myrrh, and lime.
