Holiday season is in full swing, and what are holidays without a marvellous new fragrance? Whether you want to buy a gift for someone or want to treat yourself, we have four scents that are ideal for holiday soirees.

Thierry Mugler’s latest genderless fragrance collection Les Exceptions encapsulates the sensuality the brand is best known for; Les Exceptions is a five-fragrance collection, which allows you to pick a scent perfect for you. The range contains accents of pear and hibiscus, blends of vanilla and carrot laced with vanilla and oak moss. The standouts from the collection are Oriental Express -a luscious blend that promises to last all night long, and Over the Musk, a flowery aroma finished with amberette seeds. Sealed in classic glass bottle with silver metal, these fragrances are ideal if you prefer a sophisticated and sultry scent.

From the elaborate gold-lettered bottle to its sparkly citrus tones, Lolita Lempicka Elle L’Aime is a perfume that commands attention. Whiffs of coconut from the first spritz will brighten up the many cold days that lie ahead. Its deep sandalwood and vanilla composition promises to do you justice throughout the daytime and at night. This fragrance is delicate, so you may need several sprays for it to last, but once it’s on you won’t be disappointed with the results. Lolita is romantic and enchanting — so if you’re trying to inspire a New Years kiss, this scent could do the trick.

Guerlain – Shalimar is your best bet if you love a long-lasting, luxurious aroma.
