Aside from your usual request of new socks and maybe a raise at work, you probably have some real personal requests on your Christmas wish list. If you’re interested in winter perfumes, you’re in luck.

There are many outstanding holiday perfume collections this 2016 to choose from and that are also cost effective. They boast some unique scents that are relative to the holiday scene.

Holiday Perfume Gifts and Perfume Gift Sets

The good thing about the 2016 holiday perfume collections is that they often allows you to do some sampling and even get some extra makeup pieces as well. Whether you’re buying a giftset for him or for her, this will work for you.

For the basic fragrance gift sets, consider these:

#1. NEST Eau de Parfum Collection Coffret – This set is unique as it is inspired by an 18th century artist and uses fragrances with Moroccan tea, Himalayan cedar, and Kashmir tea.

#2. Dior J’adore Gift Set – This is one of the best fragrance gift sets to buy. Along with its alluring bottle, this Dior fragrance has scents of Damascus rose, jasmine, and ylang-ylang.

#3. Donna Karan Liquid Cashmere Black – With scents of rich patchouli, praline, and black cherry, this is one of the “warmest” fragrances on the market during the holiday season.

If these particular fragrances aren’t available in your area and you’re looking for more individual options, consider L’Erbolario’s Delicious Dolcelisir, Baruti’s Berlin Im Winter, or Sélection Excellence No. 45. These fragrances are known for using time-tested ingredients that have long lasting, often velvet-y scents unique to their own brand.

Beauty Gift Sets

Going a step further, there’s the idea of getting a beauty gift set. It can run for a bit more coin but has added value other beauty and makeup inclusions in the collections. Take for example:

#1. Philosophy Amazing Grace Gift Set – Philosophy perfumes have a devoted market following, so this collection is even more enticing with body cream, bath and shower gel, shampoo and eau de toilette spray.

#2. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Set – Most know the quality of Yves Saint Laurent, so fragrance gift sets like this with added skin lotion and mini rouge are about as comprehensive and worthwhile as they come.

#3. Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Deluxe Gift Set – Another quality, global brand, this floral-vanilla blended scent collection comes with great extra scent products, with eau de parfum, a fragranced skin lotion and mist lined up beautifully in the box.
