What I love about Louise’s website is how easy it is to find a gift. What I often find with larger department store websites is that it can take a while to find the perfect gift but this has all the ideas in one place for any budget.

So are you looking for some gift ideas? I’ve put together a few lists for you below for the different people in your life! I hope it provides you with some inspiration!

Scent City Review

Recently I received a little package of samples from the lovely, Scent City. Scent City offer a range of beautiful, niche fragrances. I chose to receive two samples, Annabelle – Shelly Kyle from the Ms Friendly range and also Early Roses – Teo Cabanel from the Ms Romance range. These are both light and sweet scents and I could immediately tell that they would last all day (which they did!)

When visiting their website I loved how easy it was to navigate and instead of just listing the different brands (as to be honest I have no idea where to start when it comes to choosing a new perfume!) they put each perfume under a different personality type under a group called ‘The Urbanites’ which I can only describe at the grown up version of the Mr Men characters! This draws on historically when perfume shopping was more tailored to the individual purchasing the perfume, associating scent to the individual.

The Urbanites included:

  • Mr Classic
  • Ms Classic
  • Mr Sophisticated
  • Ms Sophisticated
  • The Socials
  • Mr Tough
  • Ms Friendly
  • Ms High Maintenance
  • Ms Seductive
  • Dr Love
  • Ms Romance

I thought this was such a fantastic way to group the fragrances available and such a fun way to pick out a gift for someone by according to their personality. It definitely enhances the customer experience.

As these are luxury fragrances they do come with a price tag. The quality of the perfume however is fantastic and the scents are so stunning so you definitely get what you pay for in terms of luxury.

They also offer gifts in terms of jewellery and interior fragrances which will be coming soon. Visit their website by clicking here for more information on the full range.

Do you have a favourite fragrance?
