Fruity-Floral Fragrances Your Friends Will LOVE This Christmas!
Shopping for fragrances can be super hard, I’ve given some pretty great tips for selecting perfumes for others in this post, but if you are still unsure what to buy and you just want to stick with a super pretty fruity-floral, then I have some great selects for you…. Y’all ready for this?!
Michael Kors ‘Wonderlust’
OK! Let’s start with Michael KorsWanderlust because it’s such a pretty fragrance. I actually blogged about it here, so have a click if you want a longer review of it. But in short, it’s filled with sexy, carefree summer vibes and notes of Bergamot, Mandarin, Almond Milk, Pink Pepper, Jasmine, Heliotrope and sandalwood. Perfect for a bestie who likes to channel Blake Lively on Venice beach!
Connock London ‘Kukui’
I must be really craving summer, because Connock’sKukui is also filled with summery solar notes which conjure up memories of Hawaiian Islands; Imagine Italian Bergamot, Moroccan Rose, White Jasmine, Calla Lily, Sandalwood, Vanilla and Tonka Bean. It’s gloriously pretty and elegant, a little more mature than Wanderlust but one of my personal favourites to wear from the edit. It’s very elegant and would be the perfect for anyone who owns a yacht.
Marc Jacobs ‘Daisy’ Anniversary Edition
Marc Jacobs Daisy is a modern classic. Since it’s release 10 years ago, it has stolen the hearts of young women around the world! This Anniversary Edition bottle is the same beautiful fragrance we all know and love (apple, citrus fruits, geranium, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, sandalwood and vetiver), but the bottle is crystal encrusted. The only thing is, this anniversary bottle is limited edition, so if you want it, get it fast! You’re bestie is gonna love it!
Moschino ‘Gold Fresh Couture’
OK, so this one isn’t going to be for everyone as whilst it’s fruity floral, it’s less ‘pretty’ and more ‘cool’. It is of course, the brand new edition of Moschino’s Fresh fragrances; Gold Fresh Couture. Personally I LOVE it and that bottle; I SWOON over it! Notes include mandarine, pear, rhubarb, peach, sandalwood, musk, vanilla and akigala wood. If you have a hipster bestie with a love of fruity florals, this is the one!
It’s kind of amazing that those iconic CK ads of Kate Moss and Marky Mark roaming around a white studio are still so relevant 20 years after their initial release. CK One is still an iconic unisex fragrance and their latest limited edition version of it, CK Gold is a real winner. Containing notes of fig, bergamot, sage, violet, rose, sage and patchouli. It’s still fruity floral, but it’s warm, fresh and green with the fig and sage, making it a really clean unisex fragrance. The rose and violet are more apparent of women’s skin and the fig, bergamot and woods are more dominant on mens skin. PS. It’s currently on sale at Debenhams!
Elizabeth and James ‘Nirvana French Grey’
Elizabeth and James is the new brand from Mary-Kate & Ashley Olson (it’s the sister brand to The Row). It’s named after two of their siblings, it’s slightly more affordable and the designs are modern, feminine and slick. Personally, I love French Grey for it’s earthy blend of lavender, neroli and musk blend. It feels very modern, fresh and elegant, it’s still contains fruity floral notes, but it’s less ‘pretty’ and ‘girly’, instead it feels a little more unisex and effortless chic, much like the twins own aesthetic. Personally, I love it and I’m wearing it right now, but if you are looking for something a little sweeter and sexier, then….
Michael Kors ‘Sexy Ruby’
True to it’s name, Michael Kors ‘Sexy Ruby’ is sexy, fiery, charming and sparkling. She’s the vivacious girl in the bar that every eye is drawn to. Filled with notes of raspberry, apricot, orange blossom, jasmine, rose and vanilla. It’s your classic fruity floral, youthful sexy fragrance! If you bestie loves to flirt, be fabulous and dance til dawn, this is the one!
Nina Ricci ‘Nina’
Finally, have you ever found a more delightful and delicious fruity-floral than the classic Nina Ricci fragrance Nina? Filled with sparkling fruits of lemon and lime as well as sweet candid apple. The floral comes in the form of pretty pink peonies and there’s also a heavy hit of musk, vanilla and praline. Oh and the bottle, the bottle is an charming fruit shape! Buy it for your bestie if she has a sweet tooth and a love of whimsy, package it up with a box of Laduree macaroons and a pink ribbon!
Ta da!!! And there we have it, fruity-floral fragrances your friends will LOVE this Christmas!
