Christmas Gift Guide | Ladies Fragrances ♥

Hey beaut's!

It just wouldn't be Christmas if you didn't buy a fragrance for someone would it...  Sometimes Christmas shopping can be difficult especially when your trying to buy for someone who seems to have everything but the one thing that's sure to be a winner every time is a fragrance, I mean everyone loves to smell nice, right??? So today I've got a selection of gorgeous smelling perfumes that are sure to be a hit whether your buying for a family member, a loved one or even a friend.

007 for Women is a fragrance inspired by the iconic women found in Bond's seductive and daring world. The fragrance is described as 'dangerously seductive', with a unique mix of ingredients that blend signature femininity with intangible mystery into a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance, sounds pretty amazing right?? The scent itself is very oriental with top notes of black pepper and rose milk, heart notes of  blackberry and white floral jasmine and base notes of vanilla, white musk and cedarwood. It really is a beautiful scent that I've been enjoying wearing over the last couple of weeks, all of the fragrant notes just go hand in hand together and the vanilla and white musk really do come through as it settles. It's also a very light, delicate scent to wear and is in no way overpowering which is a huge bonus. As for the packaging.... I really like it, I love the mix of the black and rose gold and the diamond-cut pattern all around the bottle adds that little bit of texture. Overall I think 007 for Women is an absolute hit! It's in no way gimmicky and is a very neutral scent meaning I think most women would enjoy it.

Lacoste Touch of Pink is very much a classic for the younger girlie's and has been around for years but never gets old. The scent itself is light, very sweet with a touch of vanilla to it. It's girlie, youthful and feminine without being overpowering or sickly sweet which is a major plus as nobody wants one of those perfumes that really gets down your throat do they! Overall I think this would be an absolute hit at Christmas for any younger girls that you might want to buy for and the bottle really reflects the youthful scent too. 

 Top Notes - Coriander Leaves, Blood oranges and Cardamon
 Middle Notes - Jasmine, Violet Leaves and Carot Seed
Base Notes - Sandalwood, Vanilla and Musk.

Hugo Boss Jour* RRP £65.00
Next up is a trilogy of gorgeous scents from the Boss Woman Runway Collection starting with Jour. The Jour fragrance is described as being an elegant floral/fruity fragrance and is inspired by the first light of day. For me Hugo Boss Jour is a very fresh/fruity scent, that when first spritzed can come off quite strong but dulls down to a lovely elegant fragrance and isn't overpowering in the slightest. Jour is also a very versatile fragrance, meaning your not restricted on when and where you can use it, it's a great all rounder, which personally I prefer as I feel you can make the most out of the fragrance. As for Jour's lasting power... Well, like most BOSS fragrances I've tried the lasting power is phenomenal, the scent lingers all day and it's one of those scents that always complimented on too. I think this would be the perfect scent for someone who likes something fresh yet fruity and slighlty strong.

Top notes: Grapefruit Flower and Lime. 
Middle notes: Freesia, Lily of the Valley and Honeysuckle.
Base notes: White Birch and Amber.

Hugo Boss Nuit* 75l RRP £65.00
 Hugo Boss Nuit Pour Femme is described as the perfect scent for the modern woman and is very alluring and sensual, including top notes of white peach and wet aldehyde, heart notes of jasmine, white flowers and violets, and the base notes include warm woods, sandalwood and crystal moss which combined together give it a subtle floral scent but with lots of creamy warmth, perfect for the woman who likes her nights out because like I said before it's very alluring but very elegant at the same time without being strong or overpowering. The packaging of Nuit follows the same shape as Jour, it comes in a black, glass bottle that really reflects it's 'evening' theme, it actually makes me think of a little black dress that you'd wear on a night out, and is finished off with gorgeous crystal effect lid which I think really sets it off. Overall I think this would be the perfect scent to give any lady in your life no matter what her age as it isn't youthful but it isn't mature either, it's a great all rounder that smells amazing and even though it's an eau de parfum the lasting power is incredible, I could smell its distinctive notes lingering on me all day.

Hugo Boss MA VIE* 75ml RRP £65.00
Lastly we have Hugo Boss Ma Vie Pour Femme which is the latest addition in the female Boss family and follows on from Boss Nuit and Boss Jour which both smell gorgeous. At first glance the packaging of this fragrance is beautiful, it comes in a delicate soft pink, glass bottle and has a gorgeous crystal effect lid which I think really sets it off. The concept behind the Ma Vie fragrance is the off-duty Boss woman, so expect sophistication and plenty of depth with this scent. It's quite a grown up scent and the delicate pink blossoms give it that floral/pretty edge and then the more woody notes come through giving the scent some bite and depth. Overall it smells rather lovely, it looks gorgeous and very luxurious and I think would make the perfect Christmas prezzie for your Mum!

Top Notes – Modernity: Cactus Blossom
Heart Notes– Femininity: Pink freesia, jasmine petals, rose bud
Base Notes– Confidence: Sheer woods, cedar wood
