You might not have decided yet what you’re going to wear (PANIC!), but whether you’re heading to an evening soiree or off round your mate’s house for a Friend-mas get-together, we’ve got your scent choice sussed. Just call us Father Spritzmas.
The wild child of the perfume world, MissGuided Babe Power has notes of vanilla, orange blossom, peony and jasmine. It’s a real confidence-giving scent, which enables you to stride up to anyone and do anything. Mistletoe at the ready.
Ooh, get you, off to a swanky event! Partner your floor-length-’n’-fabulous frock with Paco Rabanne Lady Million Privé, with its top notes of orange blossom and woody aromas, heart notes of raspberry and vanilla, and a warm base of honey and cocoa. This fruity oriental is strong and will last all night.
Raspberry, apricot, rose petals… no, that’s not what’s on the menu – they’re the top notes of Michael Kors Sexy Ruby. The fruitiness is softened with notes of cashmere wood and jasmine, making it an instantly likeable dinner party plus-one.
Evening soirees are made for Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal. Its key notes of honey and gardenia sound innocent enough, but after dark it really revs up to develop into something a bit wilder. Just like you after a glass of champagne, no?
No one wants to be the girl with the overpowering fragrance at a family function (let’s be honest, we’ve all had an aunty comment, ‘Oh, you smell like a tart’s handbag!’). That’s where Zoella Blissful Mistful steps in. It’s super-light and fresh, and has just the right number of floral notes.
A sweet, festive occasion demands a suitably gourmand, spicy scent. Enter Anna Sui Fantasia, with its hints of raspberry praline alongside deeper woody floral tones. It’s a perfect blend of sugar and spice and all things nice.
The I-don’t-know-anyone-there party
The not-too-sexy Gucci Bamboo Limited Edition is a safe bet when you’re going solo to a party. This floral scent, with a citrus twist, will bring you peace and serenity if you happen to get stuck talking to Geoff about his Warhammer collection.
