Christmas Gift Guide: Fragrance Sample Sets

Although I am not doing gift guides this year, I still wanted to share a last minute idea of what to get. I can’t think of anyone who would not be happy to receive a fragrance sample set. It’s always great to discover new scents and, maybe, get a full size in the future.

I have, in fact, bought perfume samples many times, both as gifts, and for myself. Moreover, I may have asked for a set this Christmas!

Discovery collections would usually cost you about £20-£30, even when it comes to luxury brands. But please keep in mind the price of a full bottle. Not everyone would want to (or would have the budget to) spend £250 on a bottle of perfume (Hello, Portrait of a Lady). That is if they did love a specific scent enough to do that…

So, here we are, the sets I have chosen. Something for everyone: from a budget option and a niche company to well-known and established luxury perfume power houses.

Malin + Goetz Fragrance Discovery Kit (£22 from here)

While I have not tried their perfume just yet, M&G make some of my favourite candles, hence I am sure their fragrances are also top quality! You get 6 different eau de parfum samples to play with: bergamot, cannabis, dark rum, leather, stem and vetiver.

My Personal Favourite Features from 2019

Last year I posted  my favourite features to work on during the 2018 so I would like to do the same with 2019. Here is a round-up of the posts which I loved writing the most in the last 12 months.

  • Makeup4all turns 10here. How crazy is that? Makeup4all has been around since February 2009, and it is still going, and I still love writing about beauty and makeup. 
  •  Victoria Beckham Beautyhere. I was very excited about the launch. In fact, I was refreshing the page to see if the product finally launched while I was at the wedding which says a lot. I’ve ordered two items I wanted straight away.
  • Aromatherapy rolls round-uphere. I am obsessed with anything de-stressing and relaxing so I loved writing this feature, I hope you found it helpful, too.
  • Rouge Bunny Rouge reviews: blushes and lipsticks. And primer. Yes, I am well aware that  I’ve just included 3 posts but I do really love writing about Rouge Bunny Rouge, they are still among my top favourite brands and I am always excited to try their new launches and share with you. By the way, they very kindly offered my readers 20% off with the code RBR-BLOGQ4 until the 31st March 2020 (this is not affiliated in any way). 
  • My rose scented beauty products obsession continues  here. I have even more now so better update it soon.
