We won't start our "official" series of holiday gift posts until Black Friday, but since advent calendars tend to sell out quickly, we're posting those early this year. We already did Part 1; today, we've another handful of fragrance-related calendars plus one tea calendar and one chocolate calendar. (Please note that many of these calendars are not available in the US. Clearly they like Advent calendars in the UK more than in the US).
From Diptyque, a calendar featuring candles, travel sprays and body care. It will reportedly be at Selfridges in the UK in November, £250.
From L'Occitane, "Indulge a loved one or treat yourself to a luxurious pre-Christmas gift with the L’Occitane Christmas Beauty Advent Calendar. Featuring a selection of best sellers, this calendar is filled with 24 Provençal treats." £39 at L'Occitane UK. (I am almost sure this one was available in the US last year as well.)
From Liberty in the UK, the 2015 calendar, featuring a mix of beauty products including items from Kai and Diptyque. It will debut in late October, £149.
From Kiehl's, an advent calendar featuring the brand's body and facial care products plus a couple fragrance items in Patchouli & Fresh Rose. €50 at Douglas in Germany.

From Fortnum & Mason, a refillable Tea Advent calendar made of wood: "Keep track of the days until Father Christmas arrives with this handcrafted, wooden Fortnum & Mason Tea Calendar. Behind each of the 24 decorative doors lies a suprisingly [sic] wonderful selection of rare teas sourced from India and the Far East." £125 (or £90 unfilled) at Fortnum & Mason.
From Lindt, the Wintercountry Advent Calendar: "Unwrap every day in December with chocolate joy! Calendar holds novelty chocolates including Santa, snowman, seal, icicle, penguin, angel and star figures in milk chocolate, white chocolate and hazelnut." $38 from Lindt USA.
