Delina Travel Set by Parfums de Marly

Delina Perfume by Parfums de Marly is one of those magical perfumes that simply took off like wild fire and has developed a cult-like following.  Count me in as one of the devotees. It’s a gorgeous floral that opens with vibrant notes of lychee, rhubarb and bergamot, then moves into heavenly Turkish rose, soft vetiver, sexy incense, cozy cedarwood and finishes with base notes of vanilla, cashmere and musk.  It’s an irresistible feminine floral. This gift set consists of a sleek silver travel sized tube and two refills. $179.

Available: Nordstrom

Sephora Treat Yourself Coffret Perfume Sampler

One of my favorite yearly gifts – to give and to get – is the Sephora Treat Yourself Coffret Perfume Sampler. It’s got something for every fragrance lover. The set contains mini bottles from Atelier Cologne, Burberry, Giorgio Armani, Pinrose, and Versace, as well as a mini votive candle from Nest, and a lipstick from Armani.  Best of all is a gift card included in the set which you can exchange for a full sized bottle of your favorite. She’ll love this…and you’ll be sorry if you don’t get one for yourself.  $75. ($128 value)

Lancôme La Vie est Belle

La Vie est Belle, the fragrance of happiness, by Lancôme will surely make her happy. It’s a well loved oriental eau de parfum  that opens with a tickle-the-nose iris, and moves into pretty patchouli and finishes with warm base notes of vanilla sprinkled with a dusting of sugar. The gift set includes a full size bottle of perfume (3.4 oz), a bottle of fragranced body lotion (6.7oz) and a convenient roller ball.  $140. ($210 value)
