Here’s how to get it right.
Gifting fragrance can be hard. Like, really hard. To choose a scent your loved one is certain to appreciate, you’ll need to have a basic understanding of their likes and dislikes. Got those? We’ve got a few useful tricks that’ll help you wing it from there. Follow these 3 tips, and you can’t go wrong.
Tip 1: Ask them what their current favourite scent is
Scent Addicts love nothing better than to chat about fragrance. Often all you need to do to find out what they’re into is to ask what’s currently on rotation. Are they obsessed with light and flirty florals? All about indulgent gourmands? Into fresh and Citrus fragrance? Or constantly searching for something coolly enigmatic no one else is wearing? Once you’ve got the details, look for something with similar notes and a complimentary composition. Job done.
Tip 2: Evoke a beloved destination
Fragrance lovers are well aware of the link between scent and memory. And if they love travel, they’ll be sure to have olfactory memories of trips taken across the globe. Each of our fragrances have been inspired by one (or more) evocative experiences, many of them rooted in exciting destinations. Does your giftee have a thing for Japan? Kyoto In Bloom will transport them back. A Tahaa Affair Devotion is perfect for island hoppers. Looking for an Italian holiday, then look no further than Sunsets in Capri.
Tip 3: Leave it to the pros
Have you tried our diagnostic tool yet? Designed to tease out the fragrances best suited to you, it can also be used to find a new signature scent for a friend. Answer the questions on their behalf, then shop the result. The questions relate to their favourite things in life – think: holiday destinations and go-to cocktail orders – so if you casually drop a few of them into a conversation they’ll be none the wiser. Sneaky but so damn clever.
