Considering buying a perfume or fragrance as a christmas present for a teenage girl?
Teenage girls are hard to buy for as they’ve outgrown many of the easy go to gifts typically bought for children, but are not quite ready for more mature and practical presents. A perfume or fragrance is the perfect gift idea as it is practical, but can be used everyday and comes beautifully packaged, making it exciting to unwrap on Christmas day.
Additionally most women could tell you the first perfume they ever owned. Whether it was a gift or a painstakingly researched, personal splurge, the first fragrance will always hold a special place in her heart. For some women, the first perfume they buy or are given is the one they stick to forever, never straying from their favourite brand or scent. For others, they may find it influences their taste, always gravitating towards fragrances comprised of notes present in that first, treasured composition.
If it’s a gift you’re after, choosing a first fragrance is important, but not impossible! We’ve compiled some of our favourites below.
As a first fragrance and Christmas gift, Baby Doll by Yves Saint Laurent ticks all the boxes. The delicate fruity floral opens with fresh notes of blackcurrant, orange, apple and pineapple before leading into heart notes comprised of a classic floral bouquet; rose, freesia, lily of the valley and heliotrope. Finishing with warming base notes of vanilla, cedar, sandalwood and tonka, Baby Doll seemingly has something for everyone. With notes from practically all of the major fragrance families it makes a perfect introductory perfume.
Alternatively, if you’re shopping for a teenage girl who is always in active wear, exercising and/or working out, then a clean, fresh scent like Davidoff Cool Water is a classic choice. Cool Water is fresh, casual and sporty, making it a great option as a Christmas gift. The relaxed, aquatic fragrance effortlessly combines fruity citrus with mild floral notes like jasmine and may rose to produce an aroma reminiscent of the ocean on a clear sunny day.
Davidoff Cool Water Women’s Gift Set is a great option as it contains a similarly scented body wash and moisturising lotion as well as the original fragrance.
For a gift that is more inline with the summer season, the Caribbean Summer edition is a great option! With stronger water notes, a delicious fruity flare and crisp edge, the Cool Water Caribbean Summer Edition is perfect for teenage girls who have bright, bubbly personalities and are full of energy.
Finally, don’t discount the plethora of celebrity fragrances available. Surprisingly wearable, celebrity perfumes and fragrances have come a long way and are often an inexpensive introduction to wearing perfume.
One of the world's most famous female artists, this perfume is inspired by her hit song of the same title. With sparkling, fruity notes of Raspberry and Pear, this fragrance is playfully feminine yet cool and full of attitude. Thank U Next Perfume is the perfect Christmas gift for teenage girls who are light-hearted, but strong-willed.
A perfect gift for teenage girls who are ready to conquer the world, Beyonce’s Rise Perfume is inspired by the concept that power comes from within. With an addictive and luminous floral scent featuring bold notes of Gold Symphony Orchid and Apricot, Rise is a mature yet playful scent that is versatile and therefore a great first perfume.
