The Perfume Shop – One stop shop for gift ideas

By Pippa Thompson

The great thing about The Perfume Shop is its huge selection of fragrances to suit everyone’s budget.  In this season of giving, choosing the right gift is made easier, with their helpful online and in-store guide.  All fragrances fall into family groups e.g. Floral, Woody, Spicy and Fresh etc. People tend to stay with a certain smell family, either because it recreates happy memories, or simply because it stimulates their olfactory receptors.

If you are looking for a fragrance gift, it is a good idea to bear in mind what the person already likes and try to find something else within that particular family group. The chances are if they like one floral fragrance, they may also like others.

The Perfume Shop Top Tips – How to choose the right fragrance:

  1.  Lighter fragrances work better for daytime with heavier musky scents for a night out
  2.  During the day an EDT or EDC works best. During the evenings a more concentrated fragrance can be used such as an EDP
  3.  Remember that a fragrance that you love wearing may not smell the same on someone else or suit their personality
  4.  Apply fragrances to your wrist to try them. This gets the truest representation of how the fragrance will smell on you
