One of my favorite things to receive as a holiday gift is a new scent. I often get overwhelmed in the fragrance section at department stores – too many different brands and perfumes to try, but then my senses get slammed and I’m not able to objectively pick my favorite. I just end up throwing in the towel and giving up! Anyone else have that problem? With the help of great Christmas gifts from my mother, sister and grandmother, I’ve been able to avoid suffering through those fragrance department visits. It’s how I’ve come to acquire almost all of my perfumes in recent years – Burberry London, Lolita Lempicka, Viktor & Rolff Flowerbomb and Tom Ford Black Orchid, just to name a few! Lately I’ve been itching to pick up a new scent or two.

I’ve heard amazing things about Dolce & Gabbana’s fragrances, but never tried any of their scents before. If there’s one designer that knows how to do sexy, it’s Dolce & Gabbana. I always love musky scents, so when I read that this perfume contained notes of amber, cedar wood, apple, rose and a touch of citrus, I was sold. That’s why I went out on a limb and decided to treat myself to an early Christmas gift with the Light Blue eau de toilette!  It’s a fresh, crisp scent that’s a wonderful day-to-night fragrance. This perfume is lovely and feminine without being sweet or too floral – it’s light and airy, not overbearing. If you’re struggling for what to give a female family member or friend for a holiday gift or stocking stuffer, give this a try. The bottle is simple and beautiful, and the box it’s in is even luxurious – it’s velvet! If you’re on the hunt for a good deal, check out the Light Blue gift set – it contains the perfume, the body cream and the travel-sized spray for under $100! A few other Dolce & Gabbana beauty products I recommend as gifts this year include the Rose The One fragrance (the rose gold bottle is heavenly!), this neutral beauty gift set, the intense color lip gloss, and this bronzing powder duo. The gold packaging is to die for! Click here to shop all Dolce & Gabbana beauty products at Nordstrom.
