Christmas Gift Guide: Perfumes & Aftershave with Fragrance Direct


Fragrance Direct Christmas, Chloe EDT, Boss Bottled Tonic, Review


Over the next fortnight, I will be sharing some Christmas Gift Ideas here on the blog. I know that some people may think Christmas shopping belongs in December and each to their own, but in my book, it's never too early to start! I have a big family and buy for around 25 people on my side alone so I always start early! For at least 15 years now, I have always bought aftershaves for my three brothers and I have asked them several times if they would like me to buy something different and every time, they say that they would be disappointed if I didn't buy it for them because it's something that they would rarely treat themselves to. I know that fragrance is quite personal but if you have an idea of the type of scent that a person likes, you should be able to choose a suitable perfume or aftershave or you could always re-stock an old favourite. I also like how compact fragrances are so if you go away for the festive season, which I am doing this year, so I will be buying some for my sisters in-law as they won't take too much room in my luggage. I also love to receive perfume for Christmas and all of my family know that so I usually end up with at least 2 new bottles! Today I am sharing two fragrances that are personal favourites that might work as gifts for your loved ones but there are so many more available on Fragrance Direct.


Boss Bottled Tonic is the latest addition to the Boss Bottled range and it's one that I know my husband will love because it's fresh without being sharp. It's zesty, spicy and woody at the same time due to the notes of grapefruit, apple, lemon, ginger and vetiver. It lasts around 6 hours on the skin, which is pretty average. This is one for men who don't like musky scents or anything that is too warm or heavy.

Chloé Signature Eau De Toilette is one of my personal favourites! I love the pretty ribbed bottle with the bow around the neck. It's a fresh, floral scent that is also a little fruity without being sweet. I smell roses when I spray this, whereas my husband smells lychees - either way, it's a beautiful mix! I find that it lasts around 5/6 hours on my skin but if I layer it with the matching body lotion, it extends the longevity of the scent.

These are just two personal favourites but Fragrance Direct have so many more in their Christmas section. They offer free UK delivery on orders over £20 and free overseas delivery on orders over £75. With the huge variety of fragrances available, you don't even have to leave your sofa to get your Christmas shopping done!

Do you give fragrances for Christmas gifts or do you like to receive them for Christmas? I'd love to hear!
