By Lauren Carbran

Christmas is here! Our advice? Keep calm and buy perfume. We know it’s hard to find gifts for your babe, so we’re here to help. Opt for our fave Christmas scents to impress that special person in your life – and you’ll totally get all the credit…

hugo-bossFor the romantic couple

Up the love this Christmas! Whether you’ve just hooked up or already planning the wedding, you’ll seriously want to impress your partner by giving them the best ever Christmas present. So what’s the secret for you romantics? Choose a scent that’s seductive and sweet. We’re digging Hugo Boss Boss The Scent For Her, which blends honeyed peach with cocoa (trust us, it’s irresistible), and Hugo Boss The Scent, a super-masculine mix of ginger and lavender. That’s one thing ticked off the to-do list!

paco-rabanneFor the outdoors couple

You love going on walks and taking in the smells of flowers, mountain air and sea water. And guess what? We’ve got perfumes that smell just like those. So show them how much they mean to you this Christmas with an aquatic, floral scent. She’ll love Paco Rabanne Olympea not only for the bottle, but also for the notes of salted vanilla and jasmine. And he’ll totally appreciate the marine accord mixed with violet leaves in Paco Rabanne Invictus, which will take him right back to your walks in the park. Go you!

issey-miyakeFor the classy couple

We’re guessing you’ve done the rooftop dinners, helicopter rides and jewellery already (you classy thing). So this Christmas, give your other half a sophisticated fragrance they’ll never forget. How about Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pure for her, which oozes orange blossom and rose? We promise she’ll fall head over heels for it. For him, opt for Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme, a strong blend of pepper and tonka bean, to say thanks for all the good times. Your life couldn’t get classier if you tried…

zadif-and-voltaireFor the fun couple

The party doesn’t start till you both arrive – in matching outfits, of course. You’re known as the fun couple, so this Christmas you should really only be thinking about giving your partner a standout scent. Well, say hello to Zadig & Voltaire This is Her! (pink peppercorn and vanilla) and Zadig & Voltaire This is Him! (grapefruit and black pepper). Now if they don’t make them happy, nothing will.

Guys, listen up! Don’t want to get the wrong gift and disappoint her this Christmas? Take a photo on your phone of her favourite perfume bottle, go into store and the experts at The Perfume Shop will help you buy a new one or choose an alternative that she’ll love, too.
