Nothing beats fragrance for a personal Holiday Gift! Plus, the holidays are absolutely the best time to either stock up on fragrance for yourself, or get fabulous deals on giftsets for your holiday gifts. Most brands offer either limited edition scents or special value gift sets this time of year. 

Today, I am going to share with you my new assortment of seasonal/limited edition scents and gift sets! My fragrance loves tend to be all over the map from light and airy to sophisticated and sexy to warm and natural. It all depends on my mood! I love having a variety of scents to choose from for day-to-day wear. 

To find out more about the following scents, please click "read more" below: Prada Candy L'Eau Holiday, Shiseido Limited Edition Zen Gold Elixir, and LUSH Vanillary Fragrance and Gift Set
This is such a fresh and easy-to-wear scent! It is perfect for everyday wear. It always makes me feel clean and pretty when I wear it. The notes are a nice blend of citrus and floral.
I think that this version of Prada Candy would appeal to many and this set, in particular, makes a fabulous gift! The bottle itself is so elegant and modern. It looks beautiful sitting on my mirrored perfume tray on my bathroom counter. The matching lotion bottle is equally sleek. The clutch bag that comes with the gift set is super cute, too. The clutch has a vintage-classic look!

The fresh and joyful sensation of Prada Candy L’Eau lies in its mix of zestful and sweetly addictive notes. High-quality ingredients combine to form this modern and sophisticated fragrance. A trinity of White Musks, Benzoin and Caramel is heightened by the presence of Citrus and Oriental floral notes, to create a vibrant ensemble. This set includes Candy Eau de Parfum (2.7oz.), Candy Lotion (2.5oz.) and a signature pouch. 

This gift set retails for $92.00. Where to buy? Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Lord & Taylor, Bergdorf Goodman, and Bloomingdale’s.
One of my all-time favorite fragrances is Shiseido's Zen Secret Bloom. Not only do I love to wear Zen Secret Bloom, but also it is one of my husband's favorite fragrances on me. That makes me want to wear it even more! ;) So, when I found out about the new and limited edition Shiseido Zen Gold Elixir, I just knew that I had to try it!  

Shiseido's Limited Edition Zen Gold Elixir is fabulous and sexy! I find the scent to be deep and mysterious. It is the type of scent that I love to wear for a date night or any time that I want to feel sexy and sophisticated. Like with the Zen Secret Bloom, my husband is a fan of this Gold Elixir as well. So, I know that I will continue to wear this frequently! I really love it!!! This is the type of scent that you wear to get noticed. You will for sure have people asking you what you are wearing!

Shiseido Limited Edition Zen Gold Elixir Scent Description and Pricing Details: A floral amber fragrance with notes of pineapple, jasmine and vanilla, this limited edition scent is packaged in a sleek, gold bottle inspired by Japanese architecture.  Top notes: grapefruit, pineapple, and blue rose. Middle Notes: Jasmine, Freesia, and lily of the valley. Base Notes: Vanilla, Pattchouli, and Cedarwood.

When I am in the mood to wear something warm and natural (and somehwhat "foodie"), I reach for LUSH's Vanillary scent! I am quite a fan of both vanilla scents and scents that remind me of baked goods in the winter. I just think that you can't go wrong with vanilla as a scent! 

LUSH has a fabulous Vanillary Gift Set available for the Holiday season. It is so popular that they are having a hard time keeping it in stock. So, if you see it and want it, I would go ahead and grab it before it is gone. :) 

Here are the items that come in the set:

The gourmand Vanillary scent combines vanilla absolute, jasmine, and tonka bean in one comforting fragrance. Get your fix with liquid and solid perfumes and a hand and body lotion. This set retails for $44.95. 

What scents are you loving this season? Are your tastes all over the map like mine? What about perfume gifts? Do you like giving scents as gifts for the Holidays? 

As always, thanks for reading!

I've got my eyes on the Prada fragrance. My fragrance taste is all over the place. I have been liking and purchasing perfume more than usual but there is one that has captivated me Lancôme La Vie Est Belle.

I wish to try Vanillary someday. I also have my eye on the Beyonce perfume set and the newest Mrs. Carter one (if it ever becomes available in Canada).

@Joanna-The Prada really is a nice and light scent.

@Mouswings-If you like gourmond scents, you will love Vanillary! :)
