Enjoy our editor's wrap up of the best fragrances to gift this year.

1. Our Editor's Favorite - BALANCE

More than a perfume: Balance by The Phluid Project is a bi-phase fragrance that's both moisturizing and long-lasting.
 
One of five scents in the gender free scent collection, Balance channels the essence of equanimity into a fresh scent with citrus notes, featuring the clarity of iced grapefruit, a perfect counter-note to calming clary sage and cardamom. Grounded by vetiver and atlas cedar, it dries down to become both bewitching and peaceful.

2. Our Best Seller - CHER EAU DE COUTURE

A scent as sexy and iconic as its inspiration, Cher and the Scent Beauty team worked for four years to develop the perfect scent that embodies the pop star's specific essence of glamor -- a year after it's launch, it's our most popular scent amongst all of our customers.

 

On one level flirty and sensual, on other meditative and serene, the scent defies a single category, like Cher herself. Vibrant notes of bergamot and neroli meet the intimate florals of jasmine and rose and smoke and spice of sandalwood and clove. In all, captivating.

3. The Safety Choice - SO SERENE

After a year like 2020, we could all use a little bit of serenity. So Serene is a fresh, clean, subtle scent from our 100% vegan and sustainably-sourced fragrance collection, Scent-Organix. It's a light and easy scent, perfect for those new to the world of fragrance, or for someone who prefers a subtle scent.

A harmonious mix of mandarin and violet, orchestrated by nature, sets the mood for the woody florals to follow. Green tea steeps away stress, as you relax into your thoughts.

4. Try Something New - CITRON BOBOLI 14ML

A worldly, precocious pairing of citrus and spice, Citron Boboli is a daring approach to an oriental scent. We offer it in a full 50ml bottle, but also in what we think is a perfect midpoint: the 14ML size provides about 100 sprays.

Indian spices find themselves among Mediterranean citrus, like a blithe stroll through Italy’s Boboli Gardens. A warm, seductive breeze blows through all, tinged with vanilla and musk.

5. For Him - NANBAN

Dark and mysterious, when discovery was in the air.

The Pacific, 1618. Within the dusky balsam hull, amid the heady smell of incense, you survey your precious cargo: exotic spices; coffee and black tea; rich Spanish leather. As the galleon sails homeward, to Japan.

6. The Gender Free Pick - TRANSCEND

Transcend is an empowering scent, a bi-phase fragrance from our collection with The Phluid Project, it's dual toned juice is inspired by the colors of the Transgender Pride flag.

Both comforting and captivating, its personality defies definition: on top, sunny, playful pink dragonfruit and pineapple leaf mingle with elegant sea-salted tiare flowers; glowing within, vanilla orchid and mild palo santo wood have a deep, knowing warmth

7. The Stocking Stuffer - AKRO SAMPLE BOX

Try before you buy! Sneak the AKRO Editor's Sample Box in their stocking and treat them to four scents. When they pick their favorite, they can use the discount code that comes in-package to redeem $10 off the full bottle of their favorite.

 

Founded by master perfumer Olivier Cresp, AKRO creates unique, stimulation, and addictive scents. Inside the box you'll find Haze, a woody, sexy kush-inspired scent; Awake, a kinetic and invigorating oriental mix of coffee, cardamom, and lemon; Smoke, a spicy and bold blend of tobacco and smooth woods; and Night, a sensual warm floral.

8. Two Gifts in One - FONTAINE ROYALE + SCENTED PENDANT

Two gifts in one: a sparkling and sensuous eau de parfum by French niche perfumers Sous Le Manteau, + a special treat: a limited edition scentable pendant.

 

Fontaine Royale offers all to desire: the bright impulsiveness of bergamot; the true-blue romance of jasmine and rose; the hidden carnality of cedar and musk. Your love is a potion waiting to be drunk.

9. The Special Collectible - LA VOCE, AUTOGRAPHED BY RENÉE FLEMING

For the music lovers -- something particularly special. Meet the autographed, collectible edition of opera star Renée Fleming's iconic fragrance, LA VOCE.

A singular scent for an unparalleled voice. Perfectly balancing art and science, classic notes of jasmine and lily-of-the-valley are surrounded by upper and lower registers of passionfruit, mushroom and ebony. A scent formulated deliberately to evoke the same joy, ascent and exhilaration as the soprano’s soaring voice.

10. For the Gen Z-er - NATALIE DYLANA EAU DE PARFUM

Created in partnership with fashion bloggers Natalie and Dylana Suarez, Natalie Dylana Eau de Parfum is a multifaceted scent, for the contrasts in all of us. Our playful side: juicy Fig and Mandarin. And our sensual side: Jasmine Petals and Orange Blossom. Our edgy and side: Amber Woods, Musk and Cedarwood. It is a scent for anyone, for all the moods that make us who we are.
