That’s where we come in. We’ve put our noses and wrists to the test to round up the 16 best perfumes to treat others (or yourself!) with this Christmas.
1. Eternity Now
27 years after the original, Calvin Klein have given one of their most iconic fragrances an update with the recent release of Eternity Now for men and women.
It’s the perfect combination of fruity and floral, with notes of nectarine, lychee and peach blossoms and a base of soft cashmere. Calvin Klein Eternity Now Women 100ml set, $89.
2. Coco Mademoiselle
Beautifully light and feminine, Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle is a favourite for its oriental floral notes of jasmine-rose - and iconic bottle, obviously. Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Spray 50ml, $159.

3. Do Son.
Ideal for someone who likes their fragrance a little more unique and boutique, Diptyque's Do Son is a truly poetic fragrance and much more complex than your average floral perfume.
