Two Sensual Fragrances PERFECT for the Festive Season

(Features press sample - see disclaimer)

When it comes to Christmas, it is THE perfect time to refresh your fragrance especially as there are so many gift sets and offers to take advantage of. I'm a sucker for a new scent and so to help you with your Christmas shopping I've selected two fragrances that you may not have come across before.

Both are available from The Perfume Shop for ease and I can assure you they're like nothing you've ever smelt before - you want your fragrance to be memorable for all the right reasons so something a little different is the best way to go. 

Signature scents just became a whole lot easier.

I first came across Kierin NYC in June of this year and fell head over heels for Sunday Brunch, an ultra-fresh scent with a touch of citrus so I just had to include something a little darker for the winter to tantalise your senses. The fragrance house brings a bold collection of perfumes to the table completely challenging the rules of traditional fragrance. 

Unlike conventional fragrance brands, Kierin invites people to be inspired, not defined or confined, by fragrance. They're artistic, genderless and individualistic. Diversity and inclusion are core to the brand and not just presented as an afterthought - a brand for young people of all ages, race and nationalities.

Kierin NYC Nitro Noir (£65.00 50ml) is a decadent scent and really something quite special. The unique blend creates a fragrance that is spicy, intoxicating and hypnotic, something you won't forget in a hurry. Perfumer Mathieu Nardin is known for combining artisanal techniques with modern materials and Nitro Noir beholds his signature creations perfectly. 

With keynotes of Italian Bergamot, Pink Berries, Orris, Patchouli and Gourmand, it smells so unique and something you won't forget in a hurry - I love the bottles too!

I adore Kierin NYC Nitro Noir but the fragrance that has really wormed its way to be my daily scent throughout December is Banana Republic Dark Cherry & Amber (£55.00 75ml). Amber is such a sensual scent, it's one I look for along with Bergamot in most of my fragrances and this is just so beautiful, so dark and incredibly sexy. 

Master Perfumer, Claude Dir, was inspired by his passion for woody notes and his favourite fruit, which created this edible woody fragrance. The juicy black cherry and gourmand praline add a tempting and addictive signature while two ingredients, blonde cedar and red amber, work together to create irresistible warmth. 

I've never come across Banana Republic fragrances before and now I can't get enough of them - Tobacco and Tonka Bean is next on my to-try list.

Being able to discover something a little unique makes all the difference when it comes to fragrance and both of these is the perfect place to start. 

The best bit? They're both beautifully packaged too! 

It's the perfect treat to wrap up and place under the Christmas tree for someone special this year.
