Christmas Gift Guide - Sister ♥ Perfume

Welcome to my Christmas Gift Guide series! If you haven't checked out my Gift Guide for Boyfriends then be sure to click here and have a look.
This is a range of perfumes that I have owned and loved myself, or wanted to buy, and think would be the perfect scent for your sister or even for a friend. So lets get started!

My number one pick is Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouqet (£49 for 50ml Toilette). This would definitely be a scent for an older sister. I am a massive fan of the original Miss Dior Cherie perfume and it is my staple go to scent. However I really enjoy this new release too. I found it just before I went on holiday with my boyfriend earlier this year and instantly loved it. It's a much more delicate floral scent to the original. It's fresh, elegant and slightly fruity. If I had a sister I would be so happy to receive this! Unfortunately they do not do a gift set for this fragrance but all other fragrances I mention do.

My next pick is the limited edition Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs (£50 for 75ml, 4ml Toilette and 75ml Body Lotion). I think that this set is such amazing value for money and is so gorgeous and pretty at the same time. This is the perfume that my boyfriend actually brought me on our flight home from holiday. It's a gorgeous floral scent that is so light and easy to wear. Plus the bottle is amazing. I love the flower cap that it comes with and I think that the miniature bottle (4ml) is absolutely adorable. Suitable for any age. If you want a full review click here.

Third is Ricci Ricci by Nina Ricci (£36.50 for 50ml Toilette and 100ml Body Lotion). I am sure you will start to notice a trend here as I also found this one in an airport. I was on my way back from a trip to New York and smelt this in duty free. I can't tell you how much I loved it straight away. Unfortunately I had no money left to buy it but my friend brought a bottle and loves it just as much as I do. Toffee apple and vanilla are some of the notes that are combined with more floral and woody ones. This may sound like a strange combination but trust me, you have to go and smell this - I'm sure that you will love it! The packaging is really cute and girlie - definitely suitable for the mid teens and up.

Now we move on to Lovestruck by Vera Wang (£38 for 30ml Perfume, 75ml Body Lotion and Shower Gel). I think that this is a bit much for such a small bottle of perfume but I think that it is good that you get a shower gel which most perfume sets don't include. This to me has sister written all over the packaging. The lid to the perfume is so fun and girly, and the scent is great. Very floral again but with more citrus notes coming through such as mandarin. With base notes of woods and sheer musk, I just think it creates a fun unique scent.

Finally we have Gucci Rush (£35 for 30ml Toilette and 50ml Body Lotion). Oh my goodness, I can not even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this fragrance. I asked my brother to get me this gift set a few years back after smelling it on one of my friends and absolutely loving it and I still never get over how good it smells. I used to love the design of the bottle but now it really annoys me because it is made out of red plastic and can be a bit flimsy - but honestly, that doesn't put me off at all! Notes that are floral and spicy make this perfume the most appropriate for Christmas. Really amazing. Suitable for 15+.
