Perfume is still one of the most popular and glamorous gifts that you can give and receive at Christmas, It is also one of the most expensive, especially if you chose to give the more concentrated Eau De Parfum. Fortunately, the Christmas Monsoon and Accessorize have fulfilled your fragrance needs with two new launches that smell amazing, look beautiful and are very, very affordable.
Monsoon Rose Gold
Monsoon’s offering is Rose Gold, a stunning confection that looks super glamorous and smells amazing.
It has top notes of sparkling lemon, soft fruit and ozonic scents, layered with velvety rose, tuberose, neroli and cyclamen, and underpinned with base notes of Eastern woods, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber. Amber and Musk make this a deep, grown up fragrance that has long lasting appeal and will stay in place throughout the day.
The packaging is a stylish mix of a white display style box with rose gold embossed writing and elements. The soft rose gold colour of the Eau De Parfum means that this will look super pretty on a dressing table, having a bottle with a slight vintage feel and a pretty geometric designed lid.
Because this is Eau De Parfum you could be expecting to pay in the region of £60 for this type of fragrance, but this is a very affordable £35 for a 100ml size bottle. It would make a great gift idea for anyone who likes Dior fragrances – think Miss Dior Cherie as a counterpoint.
Another fabulous gift idea, Accessorize LoveLily is a fruity fragrance that could well appeal to younger woman due to the light, zesty fragrance. Lovelily has notes of raspberry, orange, jasmine and sweet vanilla, which gives this a delicious scent that works well for both day and evening wear.
Once again it comes in a striking box, this one is hot pink covered in floral print, and the bottle itself is a real showstopper with a beautiful flower lid that is really eye catching and will leave you giving this pride of place on your dressing table. If you like fragrances like NYC by Sarah Jessica Parker, Lovelily will definitely appeal to you, and with the price of £19 for a 75ml bottle, this could be the answer to so many of your Christmas gift dilemmas.
