More scent-related advent calendars for 2017 — see part 1 if you missed it. And don't forget, most advent calendars sell out early! If you know of any I missed, do comment. (Please note that some of these calendars are not available in the US. Advent calendars are more popular in the UK than in the US).
Jo Malone's 2017 calendar is $450, and includes fourteen 9 ml travel sprays, plus candles and bath & body products. These are hard to get your hands on, so if you really want one, I'd call your local Jo Malone today. "Each morning, open the doors of Jo Malone London's Advent Calendar to reveal a spoiling of surprises. Illustrated with the façade of the home of Jo Malone London, the Georgian townhouse, the calendar is filled with little luxuries: refined Colognes and rich and nourishing Body Crèmes, perfect for layering to create your own seasonal scent. The countdown to Christmas has never been so indulgent. This is a surprise collection and will include a range of the their best-selling products."
Liberty of London's 2017 calendar goes on sale on the 25th of this month, and likewise usually sells out fast. "Worth over £500, this is the ultimate gift for the beauty obsessed! Housed in a beautiful Liberty London box and featuring 15 full-sized products alongside deluxe samples, each drawer reveals a fantastic beauty treat, hand-picked from some of our favourite brands, including Votary, Le Labo and Diptyque." £165.
Cowshed's Advent runs £90: "With miniature versions of our most-loved products, from our Knackered Cow Body Lotion to Cow Pat Hand Cream, it's the ultimate Christmas countdown and will delight Cowshed fans as well as making the perfect introduction to the range."
L'Occitane has two calendars this year. The Signature Advent (shown above) is $69 and features 24 small travel sizes and fragrance samples. Available now.
L'Occitane's Luxury Advent is $124 and has fancier packaging and larger product sizes (the fragrances are 5, 7 and 10 ml, for instance). Available now.
The Body Shop goes one better with 3 Advent options for this year. Shown above is the 24 Days of Beauty: "With 24 days of feel-good, naturally inspired discoveries, this beauty advent calendar makes a great gift idea for someone new to The Body Shop. Expect a whole load of mini essentials, from Body Butter to hand cream to shower gel. Countdown like crazy with us and treat yourself or someone special with our classic advent calendar!" $55. Either this is the only option in the US, or the others are sold out; in the UK, you can also find the 25 Day Deluxe Advent (£65) and the 25 Day Ultimate Advent (£99).
Also at The Body Shop, the Countdown to New Year calendar: "The Body Shop is super-excited to announce this innovative new must-buy.
