Gifting fragrance, decoded.
'Tis the season of giving, and what better way to express your love than with a thoughtfully chosen eau de parfum? This Holiday season, discover how to shop fine fragrance for others the right way (read: without taking a wild guess or leaving it up to the shop assistant) with our tips, all intended to elevate your gift-giving game.
Tip 1: Pay Attention To Their Likes
Take note of the fragrances they currently wear or have mentioned liking. Ask them for their top five perfumes. Do they lean towards citrusy, sweet, woody, or foodie fragrances? This can be a valuable clue.
Tip 2: Consider Their Lifestyle
Have a think about their daily activities and lifestyle. Are they active and outdoorsy, or do they prefer the indoors? Do they love to dress up, or are they always in jeans? Different occasions call for different fragrances.
Tip 3: Understand Fragrance Families
Familiarise yourself with fragrance families – each of our scents falls into fresh, floral, gourmand, chypre or amber. Knowing which family your giftee tends to gravitate towards can really help guide your selection.
Tip 4: Try a Fragrance Quiz
Our online Fragrance Quiz helps recommend scents based on preferences. These quizzes often ask fun, insightful questions about things like favourite destinations and personal style to suggest suitable scents.
