Gift guide: The best luxury his & hers fragrances

27 October 2022 | By Martinique Stevens

Gifting season is the perfect opportunity to spoil yourself and the ones you love, and what better way is there to put a smile on someone’s face than with an uplifting fragrance?


For her

This summer, fresh, fruity and delicately feminine scents are not only trendy, but provide a much-needed boost to serotonin levels. 

Some of our faves include the sweet apple, plum, and vanilla notes of Hugo Boss Alive; Issey Miyake Nectar D’Issey Premier Fleur’s fruity bouquet of juicy nashi pear and the scent of morning dew drops offset by a peony and jasmine accord; Karl Lagerfeld Paris 21 Rue Saint-Guillaume’s light and zingy grapefruit and mandarin orange notes; and Kate Spade New York’s playful aroma of wild strawberry, freesia, and inviting bergamot.

For him

Men’s fragrances, much like the women’s scent direction for the season, seem to be taking on a gourmand profile. However, instead of notes that are light and easy on the nose, you can expect scents that are rich and heady. 

Our top picks for him include Phillip Plein No Limits’ bold spicey cardamom, dark chocolate, bourbon vanilla scent; Mont Blanc Explorer’s classy and ultra-manly bergamot, clary sage, smokey Haitian vetiver and cacao pod mix; and Azzaro The Most Wanted’s woody blend of cardamom, toffee, and amberwood.

A little something for everyone

For many fragrances lovers, there is no real need for scents marketed towards men and women. Our must-try unisex scents include Zadig & Voltaire’s smooth and sensual This is us! with creamy sandalwood and vanilla notes, and Calvin Klein’s vegan-friendly CK One Everyone with its citrusy orange oil and blue tea notes.
