Mark David's Picks
"Deux Fleurs" Perfume Bottle

Who wouldn't love this stunning flacon from legendary French glass maker Lalique? The ultimate gift for the ultimate fragrance lover.

Available at Bloomingdales
Tubereuse Trilogy Travel Set
Histoires de Parfums

3 distinct fragrances for 3 distinct moods. Sometimes it's difficult to resist wearing all 3 at once. These beauties accompanied me on a recent trip to London - the padded foam case keeps them safe and sound.

Available at Aedes de Venustas
Iris Poudre Body Butter
Editions de Parfum
Frederic Malle

Rich, decadent, luxurious - need I say more? And a little goes a long way! One Body Butter to rule them all.

Available at Aedes de Venustas
Melograno Bath Soap
Santa Maria Novella

Hands down the best bar of soap - perfect in every way. This triple-milled hand pressed bar of soap is long-lasting and makes bathing so enjoyable - you may never get out of the tub. This is also favorite of Editor-In-Chief Raphaella Barkley.

Available at Aedes de Venustas
Be sure to read our Holiday Home Fragrance Guide which features 6 candles that make the most incredible gifts.
Grans Candlestick
Harry Allen
Dune Tray

Product design at its finest. Harry Allen's resin candlestick was cast from his grandmother's sterling piece. A pair of these and 2 scented tapers and you have the perfect gift.

What Perfume collector wouldn't love to display their bottles on an amazing tray? I love this one designed by Mario Bellini for the Italian design company Kartell. It's incredible design works beautifully in both classical or contemporary interiors.

Refraction Gift Set
Pink and Black Pepper
Molton Brown

A great gift set offering His and Hers body washes and body lotion. The incredible Recharge Black Pepper for him, and Pink Peppercorn for her. Molton Brown has been my go-to body wash for years - once you use this highly-concentrated and fragrant gel, you will see why.

Available at Beautyhabit
Vol de Nuit Powder Spray

The legendary Guerlain classic fragrance Vol de Nuit is infused into a cosmetic must-have shimmering powder. The signature olive green Art Deco propeller-in-motion flacon has been re-interpreted into this peacock blue stunner - perfect for Limited Edition and selling out everywhere. Get it before it's too late.

Available at Nordstrom
Paris Tea
Harney & Sons

Perfume Lovers and Tea go very well together. I consistently replenish this amazing flavored black tea from Harney & Sons. Paris is an aromatic blend of vanilla, caramel, lemon, and bergamot and was created as an homage to Paris. And just like The City of Light, this tea sparkles!

Available at Harney & Sons
L'Ombre dans L'Eau
Solid Perfume

Solid Perfumes are hugely popular right now and this compact little stunner from Diptyque packs quite a punch, proving that size does not matter. It comes in a variety of scents - L'Ombre dans L'Eau, a lush, green rose scent laced with blackcurrant is my personal favorite.
