Perfume is the one thing that always at the top of my Christmas list. I just love trying out new scents or replacing my favourite ones. A signature scent is a girl's best friend. So, you really can't go wrong with buying perfume as a gift this Christmas.So, these lovely perfumes are my top picks for that perfect Christmas present:  

Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne: I just had to start this Christmas gift guide with my favourite perfume of 2014. This beauty from Jo Malone is actually at the top of my own Christmas list this year. This perfume definitely transports you to the seaside. It's a lovely fresh and versatile scent. 

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black:  Elizabeth and James is a brand that you may never have heard of... yet. But you've definitely heard of its creators: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Nirvana is the signature scent of this brand which epitomises feminine style with that masculine edge. Ashley and Mary-Kate released two different Nirvana fragrances: Black and White. Nirvana Black is my favourite as I love the masculine and feminine twist of sandalwood, violet and vanilla. Now, unfortunately, this perfume can only be bought in America (hello American readers- you lucky people!) but I'm sure that this will be released world wide soon. I can't wait to get my hands on this beautiful scent.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb: One of my all time favourite scents ever. Flowerbomb smells exactly as it sounds: an explosion of so many floral notes. This is the perfect perfume for the girl that loves everything floral. A gorgeously girly scent.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream: This scent really is a dream. I'm a huge, huge fan of the original Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume and I'm also loving this perfume. A lovely floral, fruity and feminine scent with notes of jasmine, blackberry, grapefruit and coconut. This is a fragrance that is perfect for all seasons. 

Burberry My Burberry: This fragrance is inspired by the classic Burberry trench and a London garden after the rain. So, it's an instant classic. This is a floral and fruity fragrance with a bit of a twist: sweet peas, roses, freesias, bergamots and quinces. It really is an English garden in a gorgeous Burberry bottle.

Prada Candy: I love sweet scents and Candy is definitely the sweetest scent around. Think creamy caramel and cotton candy (yum) but it also have notes of musk, which makes it a lovely winter scent. I love, love, love this fragrance. 

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium:  Okay, so I am totally biased as this little beauty has also made its way to the top of my Christmas list. I NEED this fragrance in my life. This is the most amazing winter scent. Coffee, vanilla and floral notes: an invigorating and intoxicating scent. I love the glittery bottle too, this would look stunning on any dressing table.
