Most people will tell you that the best presents are the most memorable. And what’s more memorable than a gift that’ll make the person you’re gifting think of you every time they use it? An over-the-top fantasy gift can do the trick, but something just as delightful and memorable — and way more wallet-friendly — is the gift of smelling good. In our book, a luxury fragrance is a foolproof gift, because even the hardest-to-shop-for people enjoy a signature scent. Read on for our favorite fragrance gifts, all from Jimmy Choo, and complementary presents for all the stylish people in your life.
For the Friend Who Likes to Stand Out
It takes a certain type of woman to wear a pink faux-fur coat: one who’s not averse to bold fashion risks. An equally stand-out fragrance is the new Jimmy Choo Fever. It combines addictive notes of black plum nectar, heliotrope, and roasted tonka bean and feels like a vacation in a bottle.
For the Woman Who Loves a Black-Tie Event
Here’s a scent for your friend who loves diamonds and pearls, and prefers to stick to the classics. Neither too floral nor too musky, Jimmy Choo Woman strikes the delicate balance of sweetness and earthiness. Whether for work or a fancy holiday gala, she’ll love wearing this one with these Swarovksi crystal drop earrings.
For the Guy Who Likes to Keep It Simple
Sometimes it takes some creative suggestions to get a man to adopt a signature scent. Instead of telling him, gift him a cologne he’ll want to wear all the time. The first men’s fragrance from Jimmy Choo, Man, is a blend of lavender, patchouli, and woodsy notes that can seamlessly take him from his 9-5 to after-hours. To pair with it: sweaters are a holiday failsafe, but this Fjällräven style has a rugged edge that’ll make it much more memorable.
For the Less-Is-More Beauty-Lover
Everyone has that friend whose nighttime plans revolve around their skin care routine, and in that case, you can’t go wrong with a set of luxurious masks. SK-II’s brightening masks are a holy grail because they’re designed to help tackle discoloration and help smooth out skin texture. You can continue the glowy, fresh theme with a light fragrance like Jimmy Choo L’Eau, which carries delicate hibiscus as its top note.
For the Jet-Setter
If you know a guy who spends more time on planes and hotels than at home, then a quality piece of luggage is almost a necessity. This Tumi carry-on is expandable to fit all of the essentials and then some. Demanding travel days also call for a scent that can handle the brunt of life on the go. We suggest Jimmy Choo Man Blue, a fragrance that stands out with a base of vanilla bean and notes of grey amber and black pepper.
