Welcome to Scentarium! In this very special holiday gift guide, we have carefully curated the best fragrance gift ideas for your loved ones.

Scentarium with 10 fragrance holiday 2017 gift ideas

1. Amber Tuberose Print Block Candle by Skeem Design ($44.00): Candles make memorable gifts that contribute to creating beautiful memories with the power of scents. This beautifully perfumed candle by Skeem Design is a thoughtful interpretation of the classic fragrances. With  deep musky notes of amber and ocean blended with the floral notes of tuberose and orchid, it is a delicate yet bold combination. Plus, it makes a beautiful ornament in itself; inspired by old carved wood printing blocks, the intricately detailed carvings of the container can transform the most boring of coffee tables and make a beautiful reusable keepsake once the candle has been used.

2. Vintage Peony Print Block Perfume by Skeem Design ($24.00): Elaborating on the carved wood printing blocks idea, Skeem Design has recently launched a natural rollerball perfume collection. The most delicate crystal and wood bottle hides a long-lasting scent that rivals the Great Gatsby era in elegance and charm. Vintage Peony is a delicate and well-balanced composition of peony, lily, and a hint of musk. A feminine and charming fragrance, it is made with three clean ingredients to respect the environment and the most delicate skins. A thoughtful gift for the 20s-era lover, it will delight the recipient with its elegant and intricate design.

3. Destress Express Spirit Essence by Intelligent Nutrients ($45.00): As many of you already know, I love to feature completely natural and indie beauty gifts for those looking for an organic alternative. In the world of perfume, this often translates into expensive juices or overpowering scents for those who aren't used to the world of essential oils. However, Intelligent Nutrients has found the perfect balance between an organic perfume and a fashionable scent. Destress Express is a cooling aromatic spray for hair, body and personal environment made with peppermint, spearmint, ravintsara, cardamom, cinnamon, chamomile, lime, and vanilla and red raspberry flavors. This unique combination makes the perfect stimulating, uplifting and calming eau de toilette, with the added benefits of the antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral properties of the essential oils. The formula is so clean that it can even be used to craft a calming cocktail! A fun and thoughtful gift for your green bestie. {This is an all-natural product certified organic by the USDA}

4. Amber Fire Essential Oil Roll-On Perfume by Goddess Garden Organics ($14.99): For those who like heavy and complex perfumes, this is a resiny floral with a touch of sweet citrus. A fragrance designed for romance and love, it is crafted with carefully-selected certified-organic essential oils. A perfume made with natural ingredients for romantic souls, it is the perfect gift for the chemically-sensitive who doesn't want to give up wearing a beautiful scent. A sophisticated perfume and not a traditional essential oil remedy, its notes of red mandarin, neroli and vetiver make a well-rounded composition. {This is an all-natural product certified organic by the USDA}

5. Oils of Ancient Scripture by Young Living Essential Oils ($262.83): Looking for the perfect Holiday gift for the scent lover? Look no further! The Oils of Ancient Scripture set created by Young Living contains 10 essential oils from the most significant plants, botanicals, materials, and resins in the Bible—from Cypress (Isaiah 44:14) to “the rose of Sharon” (Song of Solomon 2:1). With a beautiful leaflet that explains where in the Bible these oils are mentioned, the Oils of Ancient Scripture set includes 10 single oils in 5 ml bottles. A kit designed to help savor and enjoy the beautiful aromas and the stories behind these precious oils, it makes a wonderful gift for anyone interested in scents and history. The kit includes: Aloes (Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood), Cassia, Cedarwood, Cypress, Frankincense, Hyssop, Myrrh, Myrtle, Onycha, and Rose of Sharon (Cistus.) {This is an all-natural product}

6. Fragrance Discovery Set by Tocca ($38.00)
: A magnificent introduction to the world of niche beauty by TOCCA, this delightful set includes six eau de parfums in a collection of portable, pocket-friendly fragrances.These six miniature rollerballs are inspired by delicate Italian confections bearing the name of strong women: Cleopatra (grapefruit and cucumber), Florence (bergamot and gardenia), Stella (Italian blood orange), Giulietta (pink tulip and green apple), Bianca (green tea and lemon), Colette (bergamot, juniper, and incense.) A delightful and elegant gift for the scent lovers.

7. Viva la Juicy Glace Eau de Parfum by Juicy Couture ($76.00 for 50 ml): A beautiful rendition of the classic and sparkly Viva La Juicy, this new version adds a touch of iridescence with the crisper and cooler feeling of a frozen world. The fragrance opens with a sparkling freshness, bursting with brilliant frozen mandarin and refreshing pear sorbet. Beneath a blanket of snow-white jasmine petals, scrumptious vanilla and milky sandalwood create a comforting warmth to contrast the alluring frosted sensation. A beautiful holiday scent that awakens the senses, the carefully crafted crystal bottle will add an extra touch of interest to any beauty lover's vanity.

8. Blue Mark Candle by Jack Black ($44.00): Looking for a scented gift for the guy in your life? Jack Black has created a long-lasting scented wax candle with a fresh and manly scent. With notes of Japanese Juniper, Ginger, and Watermint, it is a well-rounded fragrance that is the perfect final touch at home or in the office. With a burn time of 50-60 hours, it is an ideal gift for the discerning gentleman that enjoys the fine pleasures of a good fragrance.

9. Mandarine Roll-On by Precious Liquid ($68.00 for 10 ml): I have to confess I love niche perfumes because they are wearable works of art. Precious Liquid elevates the category of author perfume to a guilty pleasure by creating crisp and unexpected unisex compositions with strong emotional attachments. Mandarine is an inviting scent busting with energy to help navigate a hectic day. With sunny Italian mandarine merged with rhubarb and precious wood, soft musks and myrrh, this fragrance is a burst of joy in a bottle. An ideal scent for those who need an extra lift during a hard time, it makes a great gift for an overworked friend.

10. The One Gift Set by Dolce and Gabbana ($100): Created for the ultimate diva, The One is a warm, oriental floral with a hint of modern sensuality and a strong personality. The one is modern, tempting, glamurous, and classic in a revisited way. With a sence of luxury and sophistication, the top notes are vibrant and luminous with citrus and lychee. The heart of the fragrance is passionate, with an opulent floral soul for an audacious signature. The base flourishes with an unexpected punch of plum with a hint of sweet vanilla complemented by deep musky notes. Conceived in the Italian fashion, this perfume is an accessory to a perfect outfit and a potential signature smell that will keep heads turning. A beautiful gift for a bold friend.

11. Centuries EDT Sampler by Caswell-Massey ($52.00): To celebrate its 266th year as an American Original, Caswell-Massey has created a sampler of its celebrated eau de toilettes with fragrances for both men and women. Nested in the most delicate vintage box, this collection includes the iconic Almond scent that was discontinued decades ago. To complement this treasure, the gift set includes Sandalwood, a beautifully balanced fragrance for men and women, a classic Lavender and a crisp, green Verbena to round this single-note selection. A beautiful gift for the nostalgic and the lover of scents from eras gone by, it proves that good perfume classics, like wine, only get better with time.
