For the niche enthusiast, Diptyque's popular Tam Dao fragrance ("a bewitching and sensuous scent dedicated to sandalwood") in a body lotion featuring the line's brand new (and gorgeous!) packaging. 6.8 oz for $56 at Aedes.
From Juniper Ridge, an incense gift set: "I always say that our incense is for people who don’t like incense but enjoy sitting around a campfire—it’s made with real ground wood and pitch with no perfumey stuff. Think about this as a gift for friends who like camping or have a mountain cabin, because it will transport anyone who uses it to that most cherished and sacred of all camping rituals, the backwoods campfire." Includes the line's White Sage, Sweetgrass, Piñon and Cedar incense, plus a Juniper Ridge matchbook and a clay incense burner made by Jered Nelson. $54 at Juniper Ridge.
And the stocking stuffers: at left, niche favorite Costes Eau de Toilette in a 15 ml mini flask, $15 at Beautyhabit. At right, the now-sadly-discontinued B*Men from Thierry Mugler in a 2 ml rubber flask spray, $13.99 at Scentiments.
