Why give luxury fragrance gifts

Perfumery expert Rajiv Sheth said that perfumes make special, versatile gifts to give to your loved ones. Giving scents for the holidays is an intimate move as one becomes thoughtful about a person and their ability to leave an indelible impression. You immediately think about what would smell great on them and how a particular perfume suits their personality.

Sheth added that gifting scents is an opportunity to give new impressions, emotions, and experiences. A perfume can unlock new perspectives and help realize new things about the wearer, making it a meaningful holiday present.

Here’s a round up of best-selling perfumes that could be the most unforgettable gift you give your loved ones during the holidays.
