2010 Holiday Gift Sets – Fragrances

Every Christmas, without fail, every beauty counter will no doubt release gift sets for fragrances. This post features some of the available gift sets at the counters.

Its the perfect gift since it comes all packaged nicely,  in its very own gift box – thats one less hassle of wrapping the gifts…but fragrance is a very personal choice, so be careful when choosing fragrances…
Perhaps get miniatures of her favourite brand of fragrances…

To be on the safe side, one could always buy the purse spray edition of her favourite scent…


Chanel has released limited edition purse sprays for this holiday. The sleek black refillable spray is travel-ready, making touch-ups both elegant and easy. Includes two companion refills.

Alternatively, Jo Malone has Fragrance Chronicles creatively packaged in a storybook gift box…

Each Chronicle comes with a full size bottle (30ml) fragrance from her regular collection and 3 smaller bottles of colognes (not available for sale on its on, nor is it available in the regular collection) for one to layer with the original fragrance. One basically becomes the perfumer, creating one’s own unusual mix of fragrance.

There’s The Amber and Lavender Fragrance Chronicle™ which contains Amber and Lavender Cologne (1.01 oz.), Sweet Lemon Cologne Accord (0.3 oz.), Spice Rose Cologne Accord (0.3 oz.) and the Orient Amber Cologne Accord (0.3 oz.).

The Pomegranate Noir Fragrance Chronicle™ contains Pomegranate Noir Cologne (1 oz.), Raspberry Cologne (0.3 oz.), Casablanca Lily Cologne (0.3 oz.) and Guaiacwood Cologne (0.3 oz.).

The Lime Basil and Mandarin Fragrance Chronicle™ contains Lime Basil and Mandarin Cologne (1 oz.), Mandarin Cologne (0.3 oz.), Sweet Basil Cologne (0.3 oz.) and Amberwood Cologne (0.3 oz.).

This is a great time to restock or purchase Serge Lutens perfumes that you have been lemming for ages…& ermm…ah…excellent for gifts since the bottles are presented in elegant cases…

Thoughts: This post only features a small selection of fragrance gift sets available this Christmas. Most other beauty brands such as Estee Lauder, Dior and Lancome usually feature some form of fragrance gift sets (either in miniatures or the Shower Gel and/or Body Lotion packed with the fragrance) for Christmas. I am afraid the Serge Lutens Exclusives deal is available for shipping within Europe only.

Are you picking up any of these? Please share!

Happy Shopping!


p.s: stay tuned for the rest of the series on beauty sets and beauty tools.
