Between the Instagram favorites (looking at you, BYREDO), and the buzzy new hits (hi, Gucci Mémoire d'une Odeur), there are a lot of trendy, sweet-smelling fragrances on the market right now. That's great if someone on your list told you they wanted a "nice" new perfume for the holidays the year — until you start to try to narrow in on which one to gift. Then, you might have some trouble. Until, of course, you start scrolling — because the luxe fragrance gifts TZR editors have deemed worthy of a splurge are below.
From an under-the-radar find that's almost always sold out, to a brand-new launch that not one, but three TZR editors are obsessed with, there's something for every style and scent preference. But one thing's for certain — they're all luxurious, and they're all approved by a team that smells perfumes a lot more than the average person.
Whether you want to know if that much-talked-about fragrance really is worth it or you're just looking for a longtime classic to invest in, it's all below — so keep scrolling for 18 luxe fragrance gifts that are team TZR-approved.
"Gucci's Mémoire d'une Odeur fragrance was one of our TZR Beauty Award winners, and rightfully so. The universal scent has subtle-yet-strong notes of cedarwood, and makes for the perfect everyday perfume." — Aidan Macaluso, Senior Social Media Editor
"I'm in love with this fruity floral scent and I always get compliments when I wear it!" — Angela Melero, Deputy Editor
"I love that Clive Christian's minis are small to the eye, but pack around 100 sprays per vial. Plus, their sets include a full-sized fragrance as well!" — Khalea Underwood, Beauty Editor
"The light and airy scent of Lake And Skye's 11 11 perfume is so good that it's almost always sold out (but it's still definitely on my list this year). I also feel like it's meant to be because my birthday is Nov. 11 (11/11)." — Shelby Hyde, Shopping News Editor
"I was once obsessed with feminine floral scents like Givenchy Play and Marc Jacobs Daisy. I like to believe my senses have matured — I’m now an oud and cedarwood kind of gal." — Ryan Gale, Assistant Market Editor
"Honestly, I'm not much of a fragrance girl, but a recent favorite is Whispers In The Library. It's peppery and sweet and sits on my skin so gently." — Aemilia Madden, Senior Fashion Editor
"It's my favorite - it's fresh, clean, with a hint of sweet and feminine tones. It mixes well too!" — Mecca James-Williams, Contributing Senior Style Editor
"This masculine perfume is so rich and warm — I love it for nights out." — Anna Buckman, Shopping News Editor
"I only wear this Le Lebo fragrance, which somehow smells exactly like a masculine library." — Lauren Caruso
"I tested this warm floral fragrance at this year's Sephoria House of Beauty event this year and I haven't been able to get it out of my head (um, nose)." — Angela Melero
"Think tough leather mixed with hints of smoky wood. This fragrance is fitting for the colder months." — Ryan Gale
"This Gucci perfume looks as good on my shelf as it smells on my wrists." — Lauren Caruso
"I sampled this fragrance once at the office and it has been on the top of my purchase list since. Guaranteed to have you smelling lovely all day!" — Ryan Gale
"I've been wearing this since high school, and it's exactly as you'd expect — a fresh, pretty scent that's light but still elegant. I love it during the daytime in the spring and summer when I don't want something heavy." — Anna Buckman
"For the past month or so I've reached for this perfume every morning. The scent is a lovely floral mix of lavender essence, orange blossom, and musk accord. And, the chic bottle looks super cute on my dresser." — Kelsey Stewart, Editorial Assistant
"My favorite scent of all time is Oribe's Cote d'Azur, so I'm pretty sure I should have this hand cream in every single one of my handbags." — Lauren Caruso
"BYREDO reintroduced its Night Veils collection for 2019 with three new fragrances, and this one is truly incredible. It's the perfect nighttime scent if you still want to wear something floral." — Anna Buckman
