Festive Fragrances To Add To Your List This Year: Christmas Gift Guide

perfumes for women 2018

If you saw my The Top 10 Beauty Gift Sets (For Every Budget) Christmas Gift Guide, you will know that I already featured one of my favourite perfumes from this year in what is a great gift set for Christmas. But I had to share some more of my favourite scents from 2018, all of which will work well for a whole host of different women.

So here are five fantastic fragrances to add to your list this year;

jimmy choo fever review

Jimmy Choo Fever (£43 - £79)

Probably my favourite scent of the bunch, Jimmy Choo Fever is a brand new release for Winter 2018 and it is simply superb! I grew up loving fruity scents but now I like more of a floral or oriental twist to them and Jimmy Choo Fever is the perfect blend of fruity and floral. It's sweet without being sickly or overwhelming as well.

I also can't get over how stunning the bottle (and box) are. I may or may not have held onto the box just because of how beautiful it is. I honestly don't think you can go wrong gifting this particular perfume this Christmas and it is definitely one of those scents that many would be happy to receive on Christmas morning.

elie saab girl of now shine review

Elie Saab Girl Of Now Shine (£38 - £58)

Now this is another scent that you simply have to smell for yourself! I've never tried a fragrance with juicy pineapple as a top note but boy is this good! I'm also always drawn to vanilla notes in perfumes and fragrances and I'm glad to confirm that you get just a hint of that in this as well, which is quite the feat when you realise that it's in the mix with pineapple, pistachio and jasmine, to name but a few of it's notes.

If you're a fan of the original Girl Of Now scent, this Shine spin on it makes it brighter and sweeter and makes me want to book a holiday somewhere warm and sunny. I think I might need to save this for my next trip abroad to make it a memorable scent for that holiday. Also, how beautiful is the bottle?!

guerlain mon guerlain edt review

Guerlain Mon Guerlain EDT* (£45.50 - £86)

If you've been reading Ellis Tuesday for a while, you will no doubt have seen me review the original Mon Guerlain fragrance, then the Florale take on it and now Guerlain have released an EDT of the iconic scent. Another recent release, the EDT of Mon Guerlain is such a refreshing take on one of my favourite perfumes of all time.

Much like the other scents in the Mon Guerlain range, this lasts all day and is a fragrance that will take you from day to night so easily. If you're a fan of the EDP, I would certainly recommend checking this out, as would I if you like citrus-y, vanilla-y and even slightly spicy/woody scents. Certainly give this a try. It's softer than the original but in the nicest way.

missguided babe power review

Missguided Babe Dreams (£28) (or Babe Power with bonus pom pom keyring in this gift set)

A great pick for teenagers, sisters, colleagues, friends and many more, Missguided's Babe range of perfumes have been such a big hit! If you or the person that you're buying for likes sugary sweet scents, then this is the one for them!

I'm personally a big fan of Viktor & Rolf's BonBon but not so much the price and tried Babe Power as I'd heard that it was somewhat similar and I have to say, it's such a great alternative, especially for the price. Obviously it's not the same but it's got many similar notes to it. It's also got such a cool bottle. You'll find the other three scents and the original Babe Power in some great gift sets, such as this travel one, which featured in my All The Small Things travel beauty blog post earlier in the year and the pom pom keyring gift set too.

dkny stories review

DKNY Stories* (£43.50 - £60)

Launching this Summer, DKNY Stories is for those of us who like powdery and woody scents with a sweet twist.

This fragrance is also stocked on ASOS making it very easy to add to your basket. Definitely take advantage of Premier Delivery if you have it (honestly one of my best purchases of 2018!) and if you have any A-List vouchers left to use, buying beauty and fragrance could be the best way to go.
