A scent can transport us back in time or evoke long-forgotten memories with just one whiff.
While fragrances can be simple gifts, they’re also intensely personal. In addition, not just any perfume will do for your partner, family member or best friend this Christmas. For you to score brownie points with your loved ones, we’ve rounded up nine of the most interesting perfumes.
The Maison Crivelli Hibiscus Mahajad ticks all the right boxes when it comes to scents that are truly unique. With hibiscus and rose notes juxtaposed with the masculinity of leather, and finishing with the creamy softness of vanilla beans, this warm floral-oriental fragrance extract delivers a pleasant surprise by enveloping the senses. We promise you’ll turn heads with this scent.
At Maison Crivelli, no two fragrances are alike. Founder Thibaud Crivelli has drawn from his personal experiences, from trips to recollections, to craft each scent. Santal Volcanique evokes the warmth of wood burning near a volcano; Rose Saltifolia is a delightful combination of rose centifolia and a salty marine note; and Absinthe Boreale transports you to a far north sky where you can almost taste the anise-flavored liquor while admiring the Northern Lights. These captivating aromas linger in your memory long after they’re gone.
In its creations, Amouage combines Arabian art of perfumery with Western avant-garde opulence and modernity. The Royal Tobacco is no exception.
The Opus XIV: Royal Tobacco from the brand’s Library Collection lives up to its reputation of pushing boundaries. It brings you on a journey from Oman to Cuba, harkening back to the custom of the “el lector” – someone who would read newspapers and books out loud in Cuban cigar factories. Rich aromas like cardamom, elemi and frankincense fill the room with warmth, with a heart made up of benzoin, labdanum and myrrh. Finally, vanilla absolute and tonka bean make this an unforgettable scent. Men and women alike will be captivated by its smoky warmth.
Oribe’s signature Cote d’Azur scent, so popular that the brand decided to bottle it, is now available for the body as well.
The scent is seductive, fresh and uplifting with notes of Calabrian bergamot, Sicilian orange, Aomori apples, tuberose, white butterfly jasmine from Cuba, sandalwood, vetiver, and amber.
