Naughty and Nice Fragrances for The Holidays

We know; you are stressing as you search for the perfect present this holiday season for your ever-growing list of family, friends, co-workers and loved ones. You are short on time, but we are long on ideas, to please even the pickiest people on your gift list. Whether they have been “Naughty” or “Nice”, there’s a scented gift to suit every budget.


Noa by Cacharel is a modern classic created by the award winning Oliver Cresp who received a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in recognition for his ‘significant contribution to the enrichment of the French cultural inheritance.’ This clean floral musky skin scent is an underappreciated jewel of a fragrance that has just enough spice to keep it from being “too nice

. Iris Prima by Penhaligon’s captures the holiday through ballet. The perfume opens with a grand entrance of iris tinged with leather, boosted by a slight sweetness and the light of pink pepper.  This elegant fragrance is already tied with a bow.

 During the Renaissance, young ladies were forbidden to walk through the gardens at night because the alluring scent of tuberose was an intense aphrodisiac. It is said that women would put fresh tuberose under their skirts to attract men. In France, unmarried girls are warned to not inhale the scent after dark. Robert Piguet’s Petite Fracas creamy, opulent tuberose plays with airy notes of citrus, but still is dramatic with a touch of chocolate.

Calvin Klein Beauty Eau De Parfum is a more refined and reserved (but not too timid tuberose) fragrance with sweet notes of ambrette and heady lily.

The ancient Mayans used cocoa as an aphrodisiac and Yacht Man’s Chocolate Cologne is pure addiction. Tempting notes of bittersweet chocolate are then caressed by wisps of tobacco and a hint of rose.

Pink Sugar by Aquolina is our pick for a sweet and sexy scent that won’t break your budget. Its cotton candy, vanilla, burnt sugar and caramel notes are offset by a touch of spice. It’s a popular Holiday pick for girls of all ages, from ages 6-60 and the pink and white stripe stick packaging is reminiscent of a candy cane…but trust us, Pink Sugar doesn’t smell like one.

Rethink “Pretty in Pink”‘with Agent Provacateuer Fatale Pink . The famous French Lingerie Company’s provocative perfume  opens with a peek of pink lotus and camelia  opening the door to a sultry, sensual musk dry-down..  Spritz after dark.

Ed Hardy Born Wild with spicy notes of  cardamom and cinnamon has a floral heart. No tender blossoms here, the lingering trail of musk knows how to make a grand entrance.  Even the bad boy on your gift list deserves to smell good.

So, forget awakening at dawn for disappointing doorbusters and waiting hours at the mall…with you’re only a click away from a fragrant and friendly one stop online shopping experience.
