Naughty or nice perfumes

By Lauren Carbran

He knows if you’ve been bad or good (Santa, that is.), but does it matter? No, Santa loves us all. So here are the naughty and nice perfumes to treat yourselves to this Christmas. Which list are you on?

The nice list

dolcerosaexcelsaDolce & Gabbana Dolce Rosa Excelsa for her

If you’ve been a total babe this year, you deserve Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Rosa Excelsa. Why? It oozes the most gorgeous roses – African dog rose and Turkish rose – so it’s pretty much the perfume equivalent of a giant bunch of red roses. You’re welcome.

viktor-rolf-bonbonViktor & Rolf Bonbon for her

You’re a sweetheart, which is why you should treat yourself to Viktor & Rolf Bonbon this Christmas. Its delightful combo of caramel and peach makes us rejoice. Or know someone as sweet as candy? Gift them this – they’ll love you forever.

Been good this year? Then this Christmas, it’s time to give yourself a pat on the back. Givenchy Gentlemen Only Absolute is the perfect treat for any gent. It’s full of warm spices and bergamot, with a sandalwood base. Swoon.

pacorabanne1millionPaco Rabanne 1 Million for him

If you’ve been a good guy this year, drop everything now and head for the Paco Rabanne shelf. Our fave? Paco Rabanne 1 Million, with a combo of blood mandarin and amber to die for. And you can always count on the added peppermint to get you through the day – from morning latte to evening drinks.


The naughty list

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Nuit Blanche for her

You’re the girl who stays up till the early hours, just being cool. And since you’re no good girl, Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Nuit Blanche is your spirit scent. It’s all sorts of edgy, thanks to its notes of coffee and musk – the stuff of party-season dreams…thierry-mugler-angelThierry Mugler Angel for her

We all love the bad stuff. But if you’ve been indulging in WAY too much chocolate this year, Thierry Mugler Angel was made for you, with its delish notes of vanilla, chocolate and caramel to keep you smelling irresistible. Our pleasure.

af-first-instinct-1Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct for him

You may have been partying for most of 2016, but that’s cool with us. We have the perfect perfume for you classy gents who like the clubbing scene. Cue Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct, which will now take over your life. The top notes of gin and tonic are perfect for nights out. Enough said.

dieselbadDiesel Bad for him

Been a total bad boy this year? Good for you. It’s clear you were the inspo for Diesel Bad, with its edgy scent of tobacco and caviar. It’s totally daring, so make sure you wear this beyond Christmas. Leather jacket and motorbike optional.
