I am a big perfume fan and always love a good nose in The Perfume Shop to see all the beautiful bottles and have a good spray of my favourite scents, as well as try out the latest releases. A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attendThe Perfume Shop Is Magical – their Christmas launch event. And magical it was!
When I got to the event the lovely Hannah showed me around all the beautifully displays showcasing the fragrances set to be the biggest hits this winter. Look how pretty they all are!
Everything looked so gorgeous, laid out on white and mirrored surfaces piled with fake snow and diamond sparkles. Oohh I literally can’t wait for Christmas now!! The Marc Jacobs collection looked particularly stunning, and it’s no wonder they’re so popular with their pretty, girly packaging! Perfect for lovely ladies of all ages!
Everyone needs a bit of Chanel in their lives, especially at Christmas, and The Perfume Shop has got all your needs well and truly covered! With perfumes, lotions and potions of all the key scents for men and women, there really is something for everyone.
The Perfume Shop also has younger audiences catered for. I know a number of teenage girls (and a fair few adults!) who would LOVE to findOne Direction’s new You & I fragrance, which comes in a dreamy gift set containing the Eau de Parfum, body lotion and a signed postcard of the boys. Swoon 😛
And how awesome is this Frozen gift set?! Containing a princess tote bag and Eau de Toilette this is literally the biggest bargain ever at only £6.99! I’m sure this will be flying off the shelves (and I hope one whizzes my way!)
One of my favourite gift sets on offer were The Perfume Shop Vivaboxes. The Vivabox is the ultimate Christmas selection box, and makes the perfect present. There are two Vivaboxes on offer – one for men and one for women, and each one includes 7 fragrance samples and a voucher so the recipient can choose which of the samples they like best and swap it in store for a full size bottle. I think this is such a good idea! Perfumes make the perfect present and Vivabox allows you to treat someone even if you don’t know which scent they like. It’s also the perfect gift for a perfume novice who isn’t quite sure what kind of fragrance they like best. My boyfriend only wears Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male(and always has done) and is reluctant to buy any others in case he doesn’t like them. This way he could try out seven new scents without spending a fortune on aftershave, and of course tester sizes are always so handy to have for popping in your bag or taking on holiday with you. I love that the inclusion of the gift voucher also means that the recipient gets a second present later in the year once they’ve decided which tester they like best. A gift that keeps on giving is my kind of present!
As well as having a good look at The Perfume Shop’s Christmas range, I also got to learn about Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream, Chloe Chloe and Calvin Klein Reveal. These three scents are all absolutely beautiful and have such stunning bottles, it’s no wonder they’re the top three selling female fragrances.
I live in Brixton in London. I eat out far too much, am always planning my next trip and have a borderline unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter.
