At Christmas, thereâ€™s always the man who wants for nothing and the man who asks for a yearâ€™s supply of aftershave. Which guy(s) are you buying for?
Whatever your budget, if he has an eye for style and is open to surprises, the sumptuous selection below is a sure-fire route to gift satisfaction this year. Whoâ€™s ready to get their shopping done and dusted?
Year after year, Sauvage never loses its standing as the most requested male fragrance for Christmas. Modern, but still classic, the handsome scent has all of the credentials for the perfect gift: it looks good, smells incredible and of course, itâ€™s DIOR.
What does DIOR Sauvage smell like?
Sauvage is a fresh, spicy fragrance for men thatâ€™s soaked in sex appeal. Itâ€™s rugged, but sophisticated, just like Johnny Depp himself. Men who love to smell fresh and clean but want their scent to last will love to see this under the tree for Christmas! Want to find out more? You can read our Fragrance Expertsâ€™ review of Sauvage here.
Does his skincare routine need a helping hand? Overhaul his every day with The Starter Series Gift Set. A complete range of essentials for soft, smooth skin. From his face wash to his moisturiser, Lab Series has his whole routine covered alongside a few extras that he wouldnâ€™t know he needed… until now.
Now, this is what you call an indulgent gift! The Acqua di Parma Colonia Cologne set is a grand statement of style and luxury; it has everything he needs to smell and feel amazing. How gorgeous isÂ its packaging?
Both women and men can wear the fresh and classic scent of Colonia, so see it as a gift for you both, or the ideal treat for the favourite couple in your life.
What does Colonia smell like? Colonia is a citrus scent thatâ€™s like no other, even our Fragrance Expert thinks so! Redolent of fresh lemons and a crisp G&T, Colonia is sophisticated, elegant and effortless – the perfect all-in-one!
Letâ€™s be honest, men (secretly) love pampering. After a long day at the office or a tough session in the gym, thereâ€™s nothing better than a long soak in the bath to forget the stresses and strains of the day.Â
Tisserandâ€™s Muscle Ease Bath Oil is a gift theyâ€™d never buy for themselves, but would always love to receive; this hardworking bath oil not only treats them to the pampering they deserve, but it also eases and soothes a tired body and mind with ginger, lemongrass and rosemary essential oils.
Massively popular with our team, our Senior Manager, Matt is the Muscle Easeâ€™s most prominent advocate, and you can find out why here!
For some men, their beard is their everything, and the gift of a perfectly groomed beard is priceless. If your man takes pride in his facial hair, whether itâ€™s long, short or stubbly, heâ€™ll love the Jack Black Beard Oil.
A combination of certified natural oils, antioxidants and vitamins work together to soften coarse hairs, providing him with a perfected finish that will condition and smooth both the skin and hair.
Overwhelmed by the number of Christmas gifts you have to buy this year? Well, youâ€™ve come to the right place! For this edit, Iâ€™ve put my thinking hat on (a Santa hat, of course) and have come up with a list of Christmas present ideas for every single woman in your life. Iâ€™ve ticked off your sister, your mother-in-law and have even found the best pressie for your mum, all so that you can get your Xmas shopping all wrapped up nice and early.
Letâ€™s not beat around the bush, we all want our mothers-in-law to like us. So, if thereâ€™s one gift you need to get spot-on this Christmas, itâ€™s this one. Luckily, the perfect present for your partnerâ€™s mum is an easy recommendation for me. Look no further than the Clarins Double Serum – Complete Age Control Concentrate. Itâ€™s an easy one because the Double Serum is an iconic rejuvenating serum with an amazing reputation for boosting hydration, collagen production and radiance. If theyâ€™re not already huge fans of it, theyâ€™ve probably been dying to try it so itâ€™s a win-win gift either way!
Buying for your sister isnâ€™t as easy as youâ€™d think. For me, I find it difficult because my sisterâ€™s either already bought everything she wanted herself, or Iâ€™ve given all my great ideas to my mum, my nan or my other sister. I do it every year and never learn!
This year, Iâ€™m giving my great idea to you instead, which is the Benefit Sweeten Up, Buttercup! Gift Set. This is a great choice for your sibling because not only is by Benefit, a well-loved, worldwide makeup brand, but itâ€™s packed full of best-sellers like Gimme Brow+ and Hoola Bronzer, which everyone loves. It doesnâ€™t matter whether theyâ€™re makeup addicts, just starting out or you just want to arm them with some tools to help them feel good about themselves, this gift set is the perfect fit.
Mums are always running around after us; if theyâ€™re not being our personal taxi driver, theyâ€™re waiting on us hand and foot or giving us the best pep talks. I think itâ€™s fair to say we put them through their paces! Thatâ€™s why at Christmas we should make them feel really special – they definitely deserve it. A fitting gift for all the â€˜best mumsâ€™ out there is the Premier Cru The Eye Cream Set without a shadow of a doubt; itâ€™s one of the most brilliant luxury skincare sets youâ€™ll find on Escentual as it has every part of an anti-ageing routine covered. With this gift, sheâ€™ll feel a million dollars for the festive season and beyond.
Our nans are usually the ones spoiling us. So at Christmas, itâ€™s lovely to return the favour. If your nanâ€™s anything like mine she wonâ€™t usually let you lift a finger or buy her anything for her so this is the perfect excuse.
If youâ€™re looking for something really special, I highly recommend the Elizabeth Arden Sparkle On Holiday Collection Gift Set. Placed inside a luxurious red vanity case is a selection of covetable Elizabeth Arden makeup in a variety of wearable, neutral hues – thereâ€™s everything from eyeshadows to lipsticks. And thatâ€™s not even the best part, the RRP is Â£260 but you can pick it up at Escentual for just Â£58!
Best friends are there for you through thick and thin, so when it comes to Christmas they deserve to be treated. Why not spoil them with the most-raved about eyeshadow palette on the internet right now: the Naked Cherry Palette. This palette has a line-up of 12 cherry-inspired hues in a mixture of matte and shimmer finishes and it comes with a handy dual-sided brush to get them started on their look. Plus, if you gift them this it means youâ€™ll be able to borrow it!
Christmas shopping isnâ€™t easy, especially when you have to buy for a colleague and all you know about them is how they take their tea. For times like this, you need a fail-safe gift thatâ€™s one-size-fits-all like the My Nuxe Beauty Ritual Gift Set. A great pampering present that everyone would love, this set is packed with 5 best-sellers from the Parisian brand, Nuxe.
With everything from a multi-purpose dry oil to a sunkissed perfume tucked away inside, this gift set would be a match for many women in your life. One to keep tucked away in case any unexpected guests turn up with gifts, perhaps?
Perfumery as we know it is built on the backs of the classics. Everything that came before the scents we smell today inspired and shaped them into what we know and love. The classics are the ancestors and the forebears – the parents, grandparents, and sometimes great grandparents to those fragrances we buy and wear today. But to say this does not mean that these fragrances are old and outdated – they are not relics from the past and many of them are as relevant today as they were when they first launched. Also, itâ€™s important to note that the classics can be fragrances within living memory – theyâ€™re even the fragrances launching as we speak, we just donâ€™t know it yet.
In this article, you will find a round-up of the classics that shaped perfumery, from the ancient colognes to the on-trend ouds. Some you will recognise and some will be new discoveries for you – all are essential sniffing points on the timeline of modern perfumery. Itâ€™s time to meet the classics!
(Willhelm Muelhens; 1792)
What we know as eau de cologne today, i.e. the super refreshing blend of citrus, neroli, petitgrain and musks, can be traced back to one fragrance: 4711. Originally developed for medicinal purposes in Cologne, Germany (ahhhh that makes sense), 4711 has been an icon for over 200 years. Thereâ€™s substance behind that longevity and what I adore most about 4711 is just how easy it is – it is literally the best thing to splash on when the days turn hot and it has been for two whole centuries. You just canâ€™t argue with that!
(Paul Parquet; 1882)
The first fougere (fern) came from Houbigant in 1882 and it cemented this style of fragrance as a staple within masculine perfumery. The basic Fougere accord consists of lavender, oakmoss and coumarin (an isolate from tonka bean that smells of hay, almonds and vanilla), all of which come together to create an aromatic and green sort-of barbershop vibe that ranges from dapper and suave, to cool and casual. Being the first, Fougere Royale feels more refined than most, boasting an elegant sort of masculinity that would put many modern fragrances in this style to shame.
(Jacques Guerlain; 1919)
If the fougÃ¨re is the masculine staple, then the chypre is their feminine counterpart. But where fougÃ¨res have remained dominant in masculine perfumery since their inception, the chypre has gone in and out of fashion, and the chypres of the 20th century are far removed from those of the modern day. Guerlain launched Mitsouko in 1919 and it is often regarded as the greatest chypre ever created, but it wasnâ€™t the first. The first came from Coty a few years earlier however, Jacques Guerlain put a novel twist of peach into this style of fragrance, resulting in the aloof and stoic autumnal warmth of Mitsouko. You may not love this one, but for the sake of history, you absolutely need to smell it!
(Jacques Guerlain; 1925)
Putting two classics from Guerlain in this article really is just scratching the surface of this houseâ€™s greatness. They have at least five others I can think of and thatâ€™s just off the top of my head. Anyway, Shalimar is considered as the queen of the oriental fragrances and I can see why – she is opulent, excessive and exotic, but sheâ€™s also beautifully balanced. Shalimar is a real journey of a scent, one that starts at a blinding, glittering overture of bergamot and ends on a base of smoky amber, moving through territories of vanilla and leather. Other classics smell dated now but Shalimar doesnâ€™t – sheâ€™s timeless.
(Henri AlmÃ©ras; 1930)
In 1930, when Joy launched, it was the most expensive fragrance in the world. It came just after the Wall Street Crash and at the start of the great depression. Joy represented a luxury that some, not all, could afford and is famous for containing over 10,000 jasmine flowers in each bottle – a fact that is supported by its intense, heady and animalic signature. Joy is a grand dame of the floral world – a jasmine to end all jasmines. Whilst it may seem dated in comparison to the florals of today, perfumeryâ€™s modern takes on white flowers owe their opulence and luminosity to this iconic floral.
(Pierre Bourdin; 1988)
Perfume and perfume genres are often forged and driven by the discovery of new materials. In the same way that the use of vanillin in Shalimar created something entirely new for the oriental genre, the use of calone, an oceanic-smelling material discovered in the 1950s, in fragrances such as Davidoffâ€™s Cool Water in the late â€˜80s, birthed an entirely new type of fragrance: the aquatic. Cool Water is the daddy of all aquatics – itâ€™s bracing and fresh, with a deep blue scent evocative of crashing waves. Cool Water is odd in the sense that it takes inspiration from the natural (the sea) but smells entirely synthetic, performing an unusual dance between the abstract and the literal. You may smell it and think itâ€™s a familiar masculine scent, but itâ€™s so much more – a whole style of fragrances wouldnâ€™t exist without it!
(Pierre Bourdin; 1992)
Wood was a well-established genre when FÃ©minitÃ© du Bois came on the scene in 1992. But what this angular creation brought to the fray was an androgynous and somewhat feminine energy that was unheard of amongst the macho woods of the preceding decades. Â The key here is fruit – sharp, purple fruit to be exact. These fruity notes, with their tart, sour quality, envelop the spicy animalic nature of the cedar wood in a veil of amethyst-coloured silk. Wood fragrances were never the same again!
(Olivier Cresp; 1992)
Sniffing Angel for the first time is quite the experience. Angel was the fragrance that made the gourmand (foody) genre popular. Â It paired lots of wonderful sweet things: candy floss, berries, chocolate, caramel and vanilla, with a gigantic dose of patchouli, creating a huge juxtaposition between sugar and darkness that turned out to be really quite harmonious. Without Angel youâ€™d have no Coco Mademoiselle, no Flowerbomb, no La Vie est Belle – Angel was the OG gourmand and if you ask me, sheâ€™s still the very best.
(Alberto Morillas & Jacques Cavallier; 2002)
Oud is the most recent perfumery trend. In fact, I would say that oud has gone beyond a trend is now an olfactory classification in its own right. Oud fragrances are inspired by middle eastern perfumery, focusing on the note of oud, a noble rot found in the aquilaria tree. Â For the majority of ouds one will sniff, the oud is a reconstruction of other materials or a synthetic, but in some more expensive scents the real stuff is used. Oud first made its way into mainstream perfumery in M7 by YSL, a perfume created under the creative direction of Tom Ford. M7 celebrates the medicinal, smoky and plush facets of the material, Â presenting it in an elegantly suave guise. There are few ouds that can beat it!
