It's that time of year again! Some suggestions for holiday fragrance gifts, big and small...
If Santa is bringing me my heart's desire, this is it: the Annick Goutal Les Orientalistes coffret. Ambre Fétiche, Myrrhe Ardente and Encens Flamboyant, each in 50 ml, in a white leather box. €500. I haven't smelled them yet, but at the moment, that just adds to their charm. No idea where you can buy it, but the elves will figure it out, won't they?
But I'd take this too: Christian Dior Diorissimo in Parfum. $125 for 15 ml, at Saks.
From Voluspa, the Baltic Amber Pedestal Candle Bowl. Triple wick, 120 hours burn time, scented with "smooth amber, spicy cedar, warm sandalwood and creamy vanilla blend into a soothing, resinous elixir". $42 at Your-Cosmetics.
A homemade soap trio for men (made by someone else: the best kind of homemade). Includes Beer soap (25% beer, scented with lime oil), Mocha soap, and Man soap (sandalwood and earth clay). $17.00 at Etsy.
From Korres, the Holiday Fig Set, with Fig Showergel, Body Butter, and Body Scrub. $33 at Drugstore.com.
The stocking stuffer: Neonatura Cocoon solid perfume at Yves Rocher, $5.
