Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet Set Eau de Toilette and Travel Spray
The next best thing to frolicking carelessly in a French garden? Smelling like one, duh. Dior's Blooming Bouquet perfume is dressed to impress in a case inspired by the Tuileries Garden in Paris. The set includes a 100ml floral fragrance, a handy 10ml travel spray and a cute 5ml mini bottle for touch-ups on the go.

Who is Elijah The Collective
We’ve been somewhat obsessed with these fragrances for years, especially the HIS/HER addition which we think is a scarily accurate dupe for the Le Labo Santal 33. These best-selling scents are presented in a chic black box, all ready to gift to someone special (yes, that includes you).

Fenty Eau de Parfum + Scarf Wrap Set
We’d be remiss if we attempted to explain this signature Fenty fragrance without referring to the woman who created it herself. So, in the words of Rihanna, “this [parfum] exudes everything I feel, everything I am, and everything I want to be.” As for the aroma of the significant scent? Think: magnolia, musk, tangerine and Bulgarian rose at the base, with touches of vanilla, blueberry, coconut, geranium and patchouli. The scarf wrap really is just the cherry on the superbly smelling cake that is this fragrance.

The set comes with nine 1.5ml perfume sprays, spray cards and even instructions for easy-peasy instructions on how to best layer each exquisite option.

Glasshouse Fragrances Christmas Kyoto In Bloom Carousel Candle & Fragrance Set
We don’t know about you, but Kyoto In Bloom is our favourite Glasshouse fragrance. So when we clocked this Kyoto In Bloom Christmas cracker, which houses one of the brand’s body lotions and a purse-friendly perfume, we knew we had to add it to our wishlist. The combination of amber, camellia, lotus and musk is too good to pass up…
