Nothing says Christmas like a bottle of perfume. While there will always be room on your dresser for your all time favourite signature scent, why not mix it up this yuletide with something new. Whether a seasonal present for you, or a gift for a loved one, perfume is a sure-fire winner. We look at some of the best for Christmas 2015.

Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Glam edition

Christmas is for sparkles, and French legend Jean Paul Gaultier definitely got the memo. While his signature scents Classique eau de toilette and Classique Intense eau de parfum may not be fresh smells, their sparkly new corset bottles certainly fit the GLAM makeover. Both perfumes make the perfect festive gift, with the sparkly pink bottled EDT boasting rose, orange blossom and vanilla smells, and the gold-spangled parfum amping it up with notes of tiare flowers, orange blossom, vanilla and patchouli.

Pour Toujours

If you're after a fresher French scent than what JPG has to offer, maybe Pour Toujours will tickle your (French) fancy? New to British shores, this perfume collection has launched exclusively at Liberty. Six fragrances make up the line, and everything from mint to lavender, and nutmeg to bergamot feature. For a sophisticated scent Pyrus has it all, opening with citrus notes that turn into fruity pear, rose and aromatic vetiver.

Carven L'absolu

Encased in a white bottle with gold finishing touches, this bottle screams Christmas before you even get to smell the perfume. Comprised of white flowers (Egyptian jasmine, tuberose and iris), Indonesian patchouli, sandalwood and Italian mandarin, this is an intoxicating, sensual smell. If you're looking for a new evening smell, look no further.

DKNY Be Desired

Just because it's winter, doesn't mean you need to head straight for a heady scent. DKNY's Be Desired is the latest Be Delicious incarnation, and is once again presented in the signature apple-shaped bottle. The fruity fragrance is given a sexy edge with notes of jasmine, cedarwood and Turkish rose.
