Christmas fragrance edit

We're all about fragrance this Christmas and what better way to celebrate than with the gift of scent. Editor Trudi Brewer shows off some new additions and much loved classics.


Armani Si EDT, 50ml, $138

Pear, freesia and ambery wood make this cologne-like addition to the Si fragrance family worth investigating. Already a top summer scent (the stunning face of Cate Blanchett and the beautiful bottle are two reasons we love it) this new lighter version of the original is perfect for summer. You can expect a blend of blackcurrant nectar, airy florals, and lasting, musky blond wood.


Jo Malone London Red Roses Cologne, 100ml, $232.

Rose is still the most popular bloom in fragrance making - and this romantic offering from the luxe-y brand Jo Malone London is a blend of seven. Rose in abundance, there is also crushed violet leaves and a twist of lemon - it's a classic.


Tom Ford Mandarino Di Amalfi Acqua EDT, 50ml, $200.

This fragrance transports you to the most divine holiday spot - the Amalfi coast, in Italy. A blend of sharp citrus fruits, mint, thyme and wild summer flowers - this is one fragrance you will want to share. Designed as a unisex scent, it's the only perfume to pack for that romantic beach-inspired holiday for two.  


Valentino Valentina Pink EDP, 80ml, $206.

We feel in love with the couture designer bottle first, then the scent of pink roses and delicate peony. It's a blend of all things decadant including strawberry and blackberry, then once the flowers evaporate you are left with musk, praline, and amber. This is the sweetest offering for the most festive time of the year.


Elizabeth Arden White Tea Eau de Toilette Spray, from $50.

For that every day fresh, summer scent, white tea vapour blended with Italian mandarin, Clary sage essence, sea breeze accord and a trio of musks, makes this cologne so easy to wear. This is the fragrance to select when you're not sure what to buy, it suits anyone - promise.


Elie Saab Girl of Now EDP Spray, 30ml, $117.

A pretty, sweet gourmand floral with the musky addition of almond, orange blossom, and subtle patchouli. But perhaps the most exciting ingredients and the ones that linger, are roasted pistachio and green pear, followed by creamy Tonka bean and almond milk  - it's the ideal gift for a girl that is young at heart.
