Must Have Fragrance for Her Wishlist…

Welcome to the 8th Christmas Wishlist of the Week with Sam McCauley Chemist! We hope you’ve enjoyed the many gift ideas and can make use of Sam’s Lists. This Wishlist is purely dedicated to the Best Fragrance Gift Sets for Her


Whether you’re scent shopping for yourself or for that special someone, hit the high notes with the fragrance buying guide from Cork’s Evening Echo.

  • ‘Perfume is one of the most personal gifts you can give as our sense of smell is so intrinsically linked to our emotions and memories. Think about the personality of the person you’re buying for, as that will help you select the character of fragrance that best suits them. 
  • Selecting the right scent for a loved one really shows you know them well, but if you’re struggling, try a popular classic fragrance from your fragrance house of choice and enclose a gift receipt. 
  • See in store for Chanel luxurious classics (we love the new 19, No 5 and Coco Mademoiselle), Givenchy are exciting and heady, Estee Lauder are lighter and sweeter, Benefit are fun & Dior are exquisite but very personal. Hugo Boss are great for Sporty Women, while Donna Karen’s Apple range is liked by most. We love the light aromatics from Clarins and you can’t go wrong with Calvin Klein, or Giorgio Armani, or Nina Ricci
  • Never decide on a fragrance by the first spray and intensity of the top notes. Let the scent develop on skin to give you a more accurate idea. 
  • If you already know which scent you want to buy, impress on Christmas morning with a gift set.’

Stay tuned for competition to follow…

Read our Versace Yellow Diamond Reviews from our Twitter Winners: 

Lorraine Weldon
First the bottle is very nice. Its heavy, good quality & has every appearance of a luxurious perfume. However I didn’t like the transparent yellow colour of the perfume. The description doesn’t lie: this one is a citrusy fruity floral scent. 

When first sprayed it can appear to be a little strong but as time goes on a beautiful light smell lingers. It lasted throughout the whole day & I got quite a few compliments for it. Overall I really like this fragrance & think it’s mainly aimed at a younger audience.’ 

Sarah Guildea
First of all the packaging is fabulous. It isn’t a bottle that I would carry around in my handbag but it would look divine on anyone’s dressing table at home. The fragrance itself is not one I would usually wear but I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. The longer I wore it the more I liked it. It started off with quite a fruity scent which is what I usually go for and then after a while it faded to a nice delicate warm fragrance. 

This would be a really nice autumn/winter fragrance for me but for spring/summer I would be looking for something with more of a fruity factor. It is the kind of scent you would only smell on a person as you got close to them which is nice as sometimes you don’t want a perfume that is too over powering. Overall I do like it and I can see myself wearing it over the Christmas season quite a bit.
