I guess this is a bit of an odd post for 2pm on Christmas Eve as there it's definitely no chance of buying any perfume this late, unless you are brave enough to go to Tesco of course.
So I guess it's just a bit of a ramble!
You see it's always seems abit of a taboo (wrong word, maybe?) to buy a new fragrance for someone else - by that I mean something that they have never tried before. I'm guessing this is because fragrance is such a personal thing.
But I actually think perfume can make a really lovely present for Christmas and birthdays..that's if you try to match there personality or buy them a fragrance they already wear!
This Christmas I've actually bought perfume/perfume sets for 4 women in my family all totally different scents and I'm really hoping they will all like them!
I would ramble abit more of what I bought for what people but I know afew family members do read my blog, so I can't!
But I do think perfume sets are really great - especially the D&G perfume collection set that comes with 5 different 20ml perfumes, all of which you can buy 100ml versions of.
Or even buying lots of little miniature perfumes online or from Superdrug and creating your own set as after all the pre-made sets from Boots cost around £25.
As for men...I can't decide whether or not they are hard to buy for when fragrance is concerned as most of the time as long as it's not Brut they will be happy as pie.
I think one of the best fragrance brands for men has to be Paul Smith then oddly Ted Baker.
All Paul Smith scents seem to be different and almost trendy so great for anyone in there 20's or 30's - I love both 'Story' and 'London' also not overly expensive.
As for the 'older' man i.e Dads... I always go for Gucci as they always seem to be quite deep scents or for something abit cooler - Issey Miyake.
Then if we are talking Granddad's, it has to be Old spice all the way or anything that smells a bit herb like!
I know this post really hasn't been helpful for anyone but tomorrow is Christmas Day so yes! It's allowed.
I really hope you all have a very happy & merry Christmas!
