Holiday Gifts: The Fragrance Edition

Want to find the most fabulous fragrance gifts around? Your nose will most certainly be clambering after these. You'll not only want to give these to others -- you'll so want to gift yourself a bit too.

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Refillable Purse Spray Set ($50 at
The sweet and sexy fragrance -- infused with notes of honeysuckle, jasmine, amber, caramel and vanilla -- takes on a new twist in a set of three purse sprays and a refillable atomizer. You'll be good to go for months -- and best of all, the atomizer will look beautiful when you pull it out of your clutch!

Clean Rollerball Fragrance Set ($48 at Shower Fresh. Ultimate. Warm Cotton. One smells better than the next in this set of three rollerball fragrances -- though my fave is definitely Warm Cotton, which smells exactly like fresh laundry.

Vera Wang Look Eau de Parfum ($70-$90 at The bottle is modern and refreshingly uncluttered. The scent is fresh and clean, thanks to notes like lychee, golden apple and watery greens. It looks fabulous displayed on a vanity and it smells unbelievable on the skin. What's not to love?

Philosophy Grace Amazing Grace Layering Collection ($55 at My fave scent from Philosophy now comes in three fab products -- their signature 3-in-1, a fragranced shimmer lotion and a bottle of perfume, natch. And it's all packaged in such a pretty box that it would be a shame not to keep this one for yourself!

Harajuku Lovers Solid Coffret ($60 at Love. Lil' Angel. Music. Baby. Gwen herself. Is it any shock that these little solid fragrances are the absolute cutest things this side of Gwen's stage? Each is sweet and sassy, reflecting the Harajuku girl it represents. And you've gotta admit, they're pretty darned adorable!

Stella McCartney Stella Holiday Gift Set ($87 at One of my all-time fave fragrances has now become a unique giftable for the holidays. The heady perfume finds its way into a scrub and body lotion, as well as the aforementioned fragrance, to create a gift set that makes me all tingly with delight.

Sula Roll-On Perfume Collection ($36 at Perfect for satisfying each and every fragrance craving, the six scents in this rollerball set include the sweet Vanilla Blossom, zesty Sun-Kissed Citrus, heady Blackberry Blush, succulent Champagne Sugar, intriguing Butterfly Kiss and hearty Stiletto Musk.

Jo Malone Tasting Kit ($110 at One of the brand's most-loved fragrances -- Pomegranate Noir -- is held within a beautiful leather box along with tiny bottles of three of its best notes, Raspberry, Casablanca Lily and Guaiacwood. The end result is a fun experiment in combining fragrances that helps you make this one all your own.
