CHANEL N°5 L’EAU – 100 ML – Rouge Limited Edition – € 150,00
For the first time ever and for a limited time only, the world’s most eternal fragrance meets Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite colour.
Fresh and sophisticated, complex yet easy to wear, N°5 L’EAU offers a new definition of femininity. The fragrance is worn freely and nonstop, during the day and during the night. With no preconceived ideas. I almost forgot how iconic and unique the N°5 L’EAU fragrance is.
Gift tip: the N°5 Eau de Parfum is also available in the Limited Edition bottle
Top notes: lime, bergamot, lemon, neroli, aldehydes, orange
Middle notes: rose, jasmine, ylang-ylang

ELIE SAAB – GIRL OF NOW SHINE – EAU DE PARFUM – 90ML – € 104,50
Girl of Now Shine has by far been my number 1 most complimented fragance ever, which made me wear it more and more! I was very surprised by how much people seemed to like this kind of fragrance, since it’s strong and very unique. This is also one of the reasons why I definitely wanted to add it in this gift guide.
Girl of Now Shine is like a delicious and dangerous dessert in a bottle. Notes like vanilla, pistachio and almonds make it almost too hard to resist this fragrance. It will last extremly long on your skin, and the sillage is also heavy. You only need to apply it in the morning and you are all set during the entire day and night!
Top notes: orange, pear, pineapple, pistachio
Middle notes: almond, orange blossom, ylang-ylang
Base notes: vanilla, iris, patchouli
Narciso Rodriguez for her – Eau de Toilette – 100 ml – € 102,50
Would any fragrance gift guide would be complete without a Narciso Rodriguez perfume? I don’t think so! For her is a timeless and classic fragrance that definitely deserved a spot on this list. Any Narciso Rodriguez fragrance is a safe blind buy, which means it’s amazing for gifting.
For her is a very elegant and powdery fragrance, but still very strong and intense at the same time. It’s office proof but also date proof. It’s mysterious, but still feminine. I could recommend it over and over again.
Gift tip: take a look at the Narciso Rodriguez for Her (Eau de Parfum) edition as well
Top notes: osmanthus, bergamot, african orange flower
Middle notes: musk, amber
Base notes: vetiver, vanilla, patchouli
DIOR J’ADORE ABSOLU – 75 ML – € 132,50
J’adore absolu is a new edition to Dior’s fragrance collection and it’s an iconic musthave that every woman needs. It’s modern, but still classic. It’s new, but still familiar. It’s an ode to fearless women.
Absolu is a charming fragrance that smells amazing during the winter season, but during spring and summer too: you can wear it all year round! It’s an intense white floral fragrance, but still very elegant and appealing to a lot of people since I have received so many compliments about it. It’s warm and sweet but definitely not overwhelming since the notes in the fragrance are so well balanced. This makes it the perfect gift!
Gift tip: if you want to add something extra besides the perfume, or someone already has it, try to take a look at the rest of the J’adore collection. The J’adore body cream or silky body oil are also amazing options.
Middle notes: jasmine, mayrose, indian tuberose
Base notes: orange blossom
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER – Classique – Eau de Toilette 75 ML – € 132,50
Lets save the best for last: the iconic fragrance Classique by Jean Paul Gaultier with a twist. But what exactly does this limited edition make so special? The perfume bottle comes in a very unique snow globe packaging!
Classique is a sweet and powdery fragrance with a touch of spicy orientals. It’s mature, elegant and sexy at the same time. The scent has a heavy sillage and will stay extremly long on your skin. This makes it also the perfection option as a signature perfume. If you are looking to gift a more unique scent, than this is the option to go for!
Middle notes: orange blossom
Base notes: vanilla
