How to pick a fragrance gift for the non-committal person in your life

We know what you’re thinking: buying a fragrance as a gift can be tricky! But, not only do we have a full-to-the-brim fragrance collection to choose from, we also have a scent sample offer for a select edit of fragrances.

What’s that, you ask? It’s our way of helping you (or a loved one) pick the perfect scent — with no strings attached. Simply receive a sample-size scent with your fragrance purchase to try on and experience before committing to the full-size. If it’s not for you (or them), you can return the unopened full-size bottle in-store or by contacting our Customer Service team. Obsessed? Great! Now you have a mini version of your perfect scent for your handbag.

Jo Malone London Peony & Blush Suede Cologne

This is for your friend who loves florals. You know the one: they’re buying bouquets of wildflowers from the farmers market every weekend and gravitate towards anything feminine. With notes of red apple and soft suede, this cologne is elegant, a little bit seductive and quintessentially floral. This scent is available as part of our scent sample offer.

Editions de Parfums By Frédéric Malle Portrait of a Lady EDP


For the powerful and elegant person in your life: this rich, full-bodied scent of Turkish rose with patchouli and dark berries is sure to impress. It’s smoky, mysterious and compelling, with other fragrance of notes of cinnamon, clove, sandalwood, incense, benzoin and musk. This scent is available as part of our scent sample offer.

Maison Margiela REPLICA Lazy Sunday Morning EDT

Ever wanted to bottle a lazy Sunday morning? We don’t blame you. There’s something about the scent of freshly washed linen and a warm breeze rustling through the curtains that’s so perfectly captured in this scent from Maison Margiela. It incorporates delicate notes of lily of the valley and iris with fresh pear and orange flower. A comforting scent for when you’re in need of a little lazy Sunday morning mood boost. This is available as part of our scent sample offer.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Gentle Fluidity Gold EDP

For the loved one who proudly displays their fragrance on their bathroom vanity or bedroom shelf, Gentle Fluidity Gold is the ultimate gift. This opulent scent diffuses comfortable notes that wrap the wearer in warm, radiant florals. It borders on gourmand, highlighting the rich creaminess of the vanilla and woody amber — think ethereal, romantic and delectable. This is available as part of our scent sample offer.

TOCCA Florence EDP

A charming floral fragrance inspired by the style and sophistication of Paris, this treat from TOCCA is chic and timeless. Enjoy its blend of bright bergamot, lush pear, delicate gardenia, violet, jasmine, tuberose, blue iris, blonde wood and white musk. One spritz and you’ll be transported to the Champs-Élysées in a flash. This is available as part of our scent sample offer.

Diptyque Do Son

Do Son is inspired by a childhood memory of one diptyque’s founders: a family trip to the picturesque Vietnamese seaside resort of Do Son. Visiting the temples in the town, he recalled the scent of tuberose sprinkled in water that was used as offerings. The fragrance itself is a bracing take on the heady tuberose, enhanced with notes of orange blossom and jasmine.

Byredo Young Rose

From the creative mind of Ben Gorham, this scent transforms old-fashioned rose into something youthful with an androgynous edge. It comes with a base of musk and ambroxan, while carrying notes of damascena rose, sichuan pepper and ambrette seeds. It’s rose, but not as you know it.
