A profusion of collectible fragrances for the holidays!

13 december 2012

Looking for something scented – and unique – for Christmas? Check out our selection of collector’s edition fragrances for the holidays. 

 

Designing duo Viktor & Rolf has prettied up Flowerbomb’s hand-grenade bottle with a shimmering finish and accessorized it with silky pink flower. Boucheron eau de parfum glitters like gold in a black-and-gold Christmas edition. For something more girly, Juicy Couture revisits their fruity-floral scent Viva La Juicy: the ‘La Fleur’ edition comes with a couture pendant and a fuchsia ribbon. 

 
To celebrate the first anniversary of Prada Candy, the Italian design house presents a collector’s edition. The flamboyant pop bottle comes with a bright pink bracelet with ‘Give Me Candy’ written on it in gold letters. Sweet!
 
And here are some ideas if you’re looking for luxurious, prestige bottles: the Baccarat crystal edition of Burberry Body, Dior’s J’Adore reinterpreted by artist Jean-Michel Othoniel or the numbered prestige edition of Lancôme’s La vie est belle
 
Don’t worry, gents, fragrance houses haven’t forgotten you! Why not ask Santa for an oversized bottle of your favorite fragrance? Armani is offering fans of Acqua di Giò a 6.8-oz. bottle! And Yves Saint Laurent is presenting their L’Homme and La Nuit de L’Homme in the same size. These are handsome objets that will last a long time.
 
For the most fashion-forward, check out Azzaro’s limited-edition Decibel Rock, or the Tattoo version of Diesel’s Only The Brave. If you’re more into fresh scents, Dolce & Gabbana has unveiled the Living Stromboli edition of Light Blue, a sparkling fragrance over a woodier dry-down.
 
And finally, for anyone with gold-fever, Paco Rabanne presents the Absolutely Gold edition of 1 Million, and Thierry Mugler has chosen to sheath A*Men in a full coat of golden lacquer. The result? A chic bottle with a festive holiday spirit that you can find on muglerstore.com 
 
So now, tell us everything: which of these fancy fragrances are you hoping to find under the tree?
 
Do you like collector’s and limited editions? What are your most recent purchases?
 
Gift ideas: Marc Jacobs presents his perfume Dot in a necklace holding solid perfume. If you like the idea of a perfume necklace, but you’re more into Chloé perfumes, check out their long, flapper-style necklace called Bianca, which contains a sweetly rose-scented solid perfume.

Whenever a perfume is launched, I want to try it. To buy it? Not necessarily. I have dozens of perfume bottles. Hundreds? Well... it is possible. Perfumes are a passion, but when I do not smell, I write. I love to write. Write about perfumes? What a good idea! MY FIRST FRAGRANCE It was...

    I recently purchased Jimmy Choo, Burberry Body & Burberry Brit Sheer. I wanted to buy Miss Dior or Chance, Chance Eau tender or Eau Fraiche but these were out of stock. I also want to buy Dior Addict, Pure Poison, Bottega Veneta. There are more I want but my budget is limited. I might start purchasing the body lotions if they are available - just to have the smell in my collection.

    I want La Vie Est Belle by Lancome and if I don't get that I want Prada Candy.

    Mercy - Limited Editions frustrate the heck out of me. NOTHING IS WORSE than loving a fragrance and not being able to buy it again. I fell in love with Baby Doll Light by YSL and Shalimar Light by Guerlain.
