Do you want to smell irresistible this holiday season? If so, you’re going to want to head out and immediately purchase yourself a little present to you, from you—because smelling good is truly the gift that keeps on giving!

Dubai Emerald
Bond No. 9 Dubai Emerald

BOND NO 9 DUBAI EMERALD

We love Bond No 9’s new Dubai collection, Arabic fragrances with a New York edge. The bottle is opulent, featuring interlacing starbursts on a gold background. Each bottle reveals a different colored door, with curved portals that beckon you to enter, and invite you to smell completely decadent. Our favorite of the three fragrances is Emerald, which starts off with saffron, fresh, woody hyssop and champagne-like aldehydes. Its heart is enchantment—rose and patchouli, surrounded by dense, syrupy oud and a dash of pepper. Its base is purely exotic thanks to patchouli, sandalwood, amber, cypriol and leather.

Available at Bond No 9, $550 for 100 ml

NINA RICCI X L’AIR DU TEMPS X LALIQUE 

We all know the signature fragrance that is the heavenly L’Air Du Temps by Nina Ricci, but what better way to celebrate this holiday season than with a new, updated and extremely limited edition line of the infamous scent created in partnership with crystal maker Lalique? Only 74 pieces have been created, and each bottle is also individually numbered and engraved by hand, while the signature crystal doves (which, as they signify peace, is totally holiday appropriate) have been buffed with pure gold. Bathe yourself in the luxurious blend of jasmine, gardenia, spicy carnation and pink pepper in the hautest way possible.

DOLCE&GABBANA THE ONE ESSENCE 

If you already love Dolce&Gabbana’s sultry fragrance, The One, you’re going to love a concentrated update on this scent, a blend of bergamot, mandarin citrus, lychee, peach, Madonna lily, jasmine, lily of the valley, amber resins and vanilla. It is one seriously sexy scent!

Cartier La Panthère EDP Légère

CARTIER LA PANTHERE EDP LEGERE 

Cartier’s La Panthère EDP Légère is a fabulous floral for the true lady. This fragrance combines radiant, delicate gardenia and velvety notes of musk; a new facet of the original chypre-gardenia-musk accord. The composition is “illuminated” with a new ingredient of tiare flower.

Available at Bloomingdale’s, $128 for 2.5 oz

GUCCI BAMBOO 

Gucci Bamboo is a fragrance for the strong, passionate woman. You’ll find woody and warm notes at the heat and the base, while deep sandalwood, Tahitian vanilla and unique grey amber accords strike a complementary contrast with the exotic floral notes of soft Casablanca lily, feminine orange blossom and delicate ylang ylang. On Dec. 19, head to Macy’s Glendale to get your bottle of Bamboo personally engraved.

Available at Macy’s Glendale, 100 W. Broadway, Glendale, $115 for 2.5 oz
