6 Affordable Women's Perfumes Perfect For Christmas

 Women's perfumes and fragrances are the ideal gifts for anytime of the year, but especially Christmas. I know I've always got at least one or two on my list to add to my ever-growing collection. From YSL to Ghost to Primark, I've built quite the collection with a range of scents, there is always the perfect perfume for any occasion. But as always, I have perfumes on my Wishlist, and Christmas is the perfect time to get some new ones. 

So here's the 6 women's perfumes on my Christmas Wishlist this year!

Women's Perfumes

1. Ariana Grande - Cloud
"This addictive scent opens with a dreamy blend of alluring lavender blossom, forbidden juicy pear and mouth-watering bergamot. The heart of the fragrance is a whipped touch of crème de coconut, indulgent praline and exotic, vanilla orchid. Sensual musks and creamy woods add a cashmere like feel that seduces the senses."

I've been a huge fan of Ariana's perfume range. I've previously worn both ARI and Sweet Like Candy, and for celebrity perfumes, they are absolutely lovely and super affordable. This perfume would be perfect for everyday use, the scents itself are so fresh and fruity, it would be a stand out fragrance in your collection.

2. YSL - Black Opium Intense
"Blue absinthe, flavoured with wormwood, and aromatic herbs combines with anis and sweet blue boysenberry; jasmine sambac absolute fuses with orange blossom absolute, making up the sensual heart of the fragrance. At the base, the sultry coffee note that underpins the Black Opium iconic olfactory signature is accompanied by licorice, sandalwood and creamy vanilla for a deliberately daring, ultra-feminine scent."

The original Black Opium perfume from YSL is my absolute all time favourite. It's my go-to signature scent. I just can't get enough! But when I noticed there was a newer, more intense version of this, I knew it had to be mine. YSL fragrances never disappoint. They are so long-lasting, they make you smell incredible and they'll have you getting compliments all day long!

3. Thierry Mugler - Alien
"Distinctive and mysterious, yet comforting and soft, Alien by MUGLER conveys passion sensuality and the essence of absolute femininity. Alien Perfume is a rich floral woody amber fragrance containing jasmine sambac, cashmeran wood and white amber it is a fragrance whose magic trails awakens your emotions. A scent like no other it is irresistibly appealing and totally out of this world..."

I've purchased Alien previously, so I have included this as this is such a great perfume for anyone, regardless of age. It's unlike any perfume that I've tried before. It has a very strong, deep scent, slightly musky and mysterious, that really lingers on the skin all day long. No need for top ups!

4. Hugo Boss - The Scent for Her
"Inspired by a journey of powerful seduction, 'Boss The Scent' for her exudes a sublime feminine elegance, warmth and seductiveness that unfolds gradually over time drawing the BOSS woman and the BOSS man closer."

Another perfume that I've worn previously but have now ran out of. The Scent by Hugo Boss is very light and fresh, with a sweet floral fragrance. It's a perfect perfume to take from day to night. So sophisticated yet delicate, it's definitely one to add to your collection.

Women's Perfumes

5. Gucci - Bamboo
"Gucci Bamboo perfume for her by Gucci encourages confidence and strength. A woody, floral women’s perfume that is beautifully feminine and natural. Warming woody notes flow through the women’s fragrance; deep sandalwood and amber combined with sweet Tahitian vanilla. A complementary contrast of exotic floral notes balances the perfume with soft undertones of Casablanca lily, orange blossom and ylang-ylang."

One brand that I'm yet to venture towards when it comes to perfumes is Gucci. I've added this one to my Wishlist not only to test the Gucci scent, but also because it's more of a sweet floral scent that I don't really have in my collection.

6. Giorgio Armani - Si
"Chic, sultry, intense and soft at the same time, Sì is a chypre scent reinvented, lingering on the skin and captivating the senses. It combines an inflection of three accords: blackcurrant nectar, modern chypre and light musky wood."

Again, Giorgio Armani is another brand that I haven't come across yet in terms of perfumes, but I've heard so many good reviews and recommendations of theirs, that I know I need to give it a try. The classic perfume 'Si' seems to be a firm favourite from the Armani fragrance line and is one that I would really love to try. The mixture of notes that are combined within the perfume sound absolutely lovely. Fruity and musky sounds like the perfect combination, and I know that I'll need to purchase this one soon!
