With so much choice it can be hard to pick out what your Crimbo perfume should be… So, we’ve rounded up the top five scents of the season, to make your choice a little easier — we’re nice like that!

Nirvana Black by Elizabeth And James, starting at £69

Until recently, this gorgeous scent from the Elizabeth and James Nirvana family was only available in the states, so you may not have had the chance to give this a whiff! Well, let us tell you it is worth a sniff, it’s definitely one of our favourite scents of the year. Sexy and musky this is exactly what you need to give yourself that edge when getting ready for party season.

Narciso Rodriguez Fleur Musc, starting at £40

Narciso Rodriguez’ iconic scent family has been a firm favourite amongst women for years now, so when they brought out this new floral take, we were on board! It has the same sexy musk of the original but with powdery, floral top knots for a refreshing new take on the classic. We’ve been very good this year, Santa!

Kat Von D Saint or Sinner, £52

If you thought Kat Von D was just the Queen of makeup, then allow us to introduce you to her gorgeous fragrances! Saint and Sinner work alone or blend together to create a sweet but sultry scent. If Saint is the more softer and uplifting fragrance then Sinner is it’s spicy, sexy counterpart. Kat Von D makes perfume fun!

Psst… Try Sinner — in our shop NOW!

Gucci Bloom, £99

If you fancy a fragrance with flower power, then this rich white floral scent is perfect! Who said that winter has to be dark and sultry? If you want a lighter more uplifting fragrance this Xmas, then this one is perfect for you! One spritz of this and you’ll feel fresh all through the festivities.

The Perfumers Story by Azzi ‘After Hours’, £95

With top notes of ylang ylang, freesia and neroli — the perfumer’s story has created a luxurious blend that gives an alluring and seductive musk. Creator Azzi Glasser says ‘I wanted to capture the ambience and sense of excitement and mystery that fills the store – in essence, bring alive the magical soul of Harrods and bottle it’. So basically, if you want to bottle that feeling of having all of your Xmas shopping done — this is it!
