While buying someone a fragrance for Christmas might not be everyone's choice of gift ("Oh, it's far too personal!"), there are plenty of gorgeous gift sets to choose from that would put a smile on anyone's face. Granted, some people might have a 'signature' scent - or a certain perfume brand that they wear on repeat - but there are lots of women who just appreciate a lovely new bottle of perfume to spritz before they leave for work. If you're buying a fragrance for someone and you're not sure of their scent preferences, it's probably best to stick to florals, or you could opt for vanilla as that's apparently the most universally liked scent.
Back in 2017, it was revealed in a poll that 55% of British women preferred wearing woody, spicy scents, and that unisex fragrance will continue to be popular with women.
We've picked out 14 perfume gift sets that would make incredible gifts for the woman in your life this year...
