Perfume Gift Guide

Excerpts from a fragrance editorial, Gift Guide: Objects of Desire, in Allure Magazine December 2019 / January 2020.

Fashion magazine Allure shares their ultimate gift guide. These Objects of Desire include some fabulous fragrances. Here's your go-to resource for holiday shopping.

Objects of Desire

This season, we plucked gift inspiration from the colors, architecture, and eclectic vibe of our own backyard: New York City. With twinkling palettes, skyscraper heels, and bags with the structure of a suspension bridge, the getting (and giving) sure is good - in every neighborhood.

Mugler Alien Collector Bottle

Paint the Town
For the person who has everything under the rainbow (minus the actual rainbow).

MUGLER Alien Collector Bottle
Mugler Alien Extraordinary Colors Collector Eau de Parfum
The bottle's random splashes of color give a different effect from every angle. Meanwhile, the jasmine scent inside is consistently classic and chic, $120.

Tiffany & Love Fragrance for Her

All is Calm
Soft pastels and watercolor motifs for the one who loves to escape the holiday bustle.

TIFFANY & CO. Tiffany & Love
Tiffany & Love Fragrance for Her Eau de Parfum
Who doesn't love a little Tiffany on the neck and wrists? Basil, grapefruit, and neroli positively sparkle on the pulse points. $105 for 1.7 oz.

Black, white, and ready all over - for the friend who always comes alive after dark.

VALENTINO Uomo Born in Roma

The black ombre bottle studded in grommets is a gift to his nightstand - or her vanity. The sexy, invigorating mix of ginger and salt is universally attractive. $95 for 3.4 oz.
