Festive candles and which perfume to buy this year, here's my list...
Perfumes are always a great gift for Christmas, whether it be a gift for yourself or a gift for a significant other, sister or mother. This Christmas there is a great assortment of perfumes to choose from.
Firstly, the Christmas limited edition perfumes. Chanel have brought out a limited-edition bottle of Chanel N°5 Eau du Parfum the Red Edition for £130. Instead of their usual choice of bottle Chanel have gone for a red bottle for the festive season. It’s red hot, so grab it while you can. Jean Paul Gaultier are also doing the same as Chanel, embracing the Christmas spirit by releasing the Classique Collector EDT Spray with a snow globe theme. Instead of the iconic glass bust being clear it is instead decorated with a Christmas dress, channelling the winter snowflake look. Shake the snow globe and see what appears through the snowflakes. This is a perfect gift for those who would love a festive twist on the Jean Paul Gaultier Classique. Available for £86 at The Perfume Shop.[pullquote]Jo Malone is a favourite for most people and now they have the Honeysuckle and Davana fragrance for £90.

It isn’t exactly screaming Christmas, but it is a perfume which is a bit more subtle for the Christmas season. It doesn’t come in a limited-edition Christmas bottle or packaging, but it is a great gift idea for those who aren’t all about Christmas decorated perfumes.
For the men, Mugler have finally introduced a fragrance for all the males, Alien Man for £52. With dill and beech wood, it could be a great gift for someone who needs a change from their usual fragrance or if you are looking for something new to try out. Jean Paul Gaultier has also created a limited edition for Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male Collector EDT Spray for £57.95. With the same snowflake design and red Christmas jumper it is perfect for the holidays or a gift for a loved one.
Yankee Candle is always the go-to favourite when it comes to scented candles and this year they have not disappointed with the new fragrances in their 2018 Christmas Collection. The collection will soon be added to the many favourites that we already love. The festive collection includes: Christmas Wish, Frosty Gingerbread, Holly Berry, Jack Frost, Winter Wonderland and Sugar Frost Christmas.
