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. There is also a discount code when buying the set via the website to be used towards a full sized bottle.

Maja Njie Discovery Set, (£30 from here)

I encourage you to read more about Maja Njie everything about the brand is just beautiful. And this is the set I would definitely want to try myself in the future. Included are 5 scents to try and a

Malin + Goetz Essential Kit Review and Photos

I have got this Malin + Goetz set at Zuneta for £20 as  for myself as a Christmas gift. But it looks like that the kit is no longer available. But I am still going to let you know my impression as you can always get each product on its own.

I just love getting different kits with mini products as it’s a great way to try the brand without braking the bank.

So what do you get?


  • Grapefruit Face Cleanser (full size 236 ml – £ 25)
  • Vitamin E Face Moisturiser (full size 118 ml – £ 36)
  • Vitamin B5 Body Moisturiser (full size 236 ml – £28)
  • Bergamot Body Wash (full size 236 ml – £ 15.50)
  • Cilantro Hair Conditioner (full size 236 ml – £16.50)
  • Peppermint Shampoo (full size 236 ml – £ 16)

First of all I have to say that I absolutely love the design, I think it’s brilliant. And this kit was very useful when I was travelling.

Hair Products

I absolutely loved the shampoo and I would probably re-purchase it although I find that it is very expensive (236 ml – £ 16  and 473 ml for £ 30). I adore the fresh mint scent and it reminds me of mint sweets that I love. I find that it is very refreshing for summer and this shampoo is just a pleasure to use.

As for the hair conditioner – I really dislike cilantro which  is also known as coriander so I can’t say that I’ve enjoyed using this conditioner as it has a strong scent of coriander. I’d rather put a conditioner with other scent, really.

Face Products

The face wash is

Christmas Gift Guide: Even More Beauty Products

Here are even more ideas for the Christmas gifts from different online shops. And let me tell you I’ve chosen the gifts that I would love to receive myself, I think all of these are great.

That’s amazing how I write about the presents all the time but haven’t got anything myself yet (not for myself but for others).  I won’t get a beauty related presents for my parents  but my brother wants a set of luxury skincare and a set of YSL perfumes. I guess I will have to get it now, well, I am the only one to blame anyway. It is because I gave him several samples which I got with some of my online orders and he loved everything.

I’ve already written about a lot of other beauty related products that you can get as a present, so just take a look at the  earlier posts. And today I’ve chosen these products:
