Perfumes You Should Give Yourself This Christmas

You deserve it!

Gucci Première Eau de Toilette


What You'll Smell Like: A mix of oranges, freesia, and jasmine flowers. 

Why You Should Get It: Sure, the mix sounds overpowering, but the fragrance is suprisingly lightwe promise you won't get a perfume headache after. We'd rather you spritz this on during more special occasions, though—like an anniversary date—especially on the ends of your hair. Oh, and if you must know, this is Blake Lively's perfume.

Where It's Available: All leading department stores for P3,950 (30mL).

Estee Lauder Modern Muse


What You'll Smell Like: Like a floral garden! No, seriously. At first spritz, you'll smell like jasmine, tuberose, fresh lilies, and honeysuckle.

Why You Should Get It: The floral fragrance wears off when the perfume dries on your skin—giving you a woody, musky scent with a hint of vanilla. 

Where It's Available: Estee Lauder counters in Rustan's Makati, Shangri-La, Alabang, Gateway, Cebu, Essenses Rockwell, and Mall of Asia for P2,600 (30mL).

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Yuzu

What You'll Smell Like: Like you're good enough to eatoranges, lemon, green tea, and yes, spearmint.

Why You Should Get It: It's refreshing, zesty. Plus, the scent reminds us of garden weddings, weekend brunches, and girls in bicycles with basketsbasically, happy things! Buy this if you know nothing about perfume, but have always wanted to have a signature scent. We've never met anyone who did not like how this smells like. Really

Where It's Available: All leading department stores for P1,500 (30mL).

Versace Crystal Absolu

What You'll Smell Like: Like raspberries, peonies, magnolias, and citrus fruits.

Why You Should Get It: It's intense and sexy, making it the perfect after-hours fragrance—it's no wonder Victoria's Secret supermodel Candice Swanepoel swears by it. There's also rumor that if you spritz this, you will wake up and look like her. So we're hoarding about 10 bottles. You should, too.
