10 fragrances that are perfect for the holiday season
As one of the most classic Christmas songs says – “it’s the most wonderful time of the year”, and although we know we are stating the obvious, you should admit that there is some hidden magic in the Holiday Season.
For us, the magic lies not only in listening to ‘All-time Christmas Classics” on repeat the whole day, starting at 8:00 in the morning but also in all of the inevitable rushes that comes with the holiday season. We cannot honestly judge whether we like it or not, as we fully realize a lot of it is due to the constant reminders we get from the media that it is time to get presents for our loved ones!
OK, we get it, and we will, but let’s first reward us, shall we? After all, we have gone through the whole year, hard-working (some of us not that hard) but we personally find the holiday season to be the best time to get ourselves a little treat, or maybe not that little!
And although, we have a signature girly, bubbly, lively, energizing and (insert all the synonyms for refreshing here) scent all year round, the holiday season is the perfect excuse to get out of our comfort zone and get a new signature scent and look, even if it is just for a month.
We have compiled a list of captivating, sexy and hypnotizing feminine fragrances that will definitely make a statement for you on the New Year’s Eve party or on Christmas Eve and, believe us, they will compensate for the not so sparkly dress that you just bought!
Our male audience will also get a must-have list of masculine fragrances, which will make your partner desire you even more, and if you are single – well, that may not last for too long after you wear one of our suggestions below.
So without further adieu, here is the list of feminine fragrances that are perfect for this Holiday Season:
