We’re not sure if it’s childhood nostalgia or just pure indulgence, but unboxing a little treat every day still makes the countdown to Christmas exciting. So you best believe we’ve got our beauty advent calendar wishlist sorted. At the top? A perfume advent calendar, obviously.
Perfume is one of the most personal and sentimental gifts to give, but it’s not always an easy task to nail your special someone’s favourite scent profile. An advent calendar filled with a selection of fragrances takes the guesswork out so they can experiment and find their signature scent – which means next year’s gift is sorted too. And what’s not to love about unboxing a whole collection of perfumes?!
