Holiday fragrance gifts 2017, part 6

Part six in our annual series of fragrance related holiday gifts features coffrets, kits and gift sets. (And, it is terribly late, apologies! It is just as well that for many of us, this is just another form of window shopping, and/or just as well that many of us buy as much in the week after Christmas as we do the week before.) Do add any of your own recommendations in the comments!

There truly is a fragrance to wear for every occasion. Presented in an exquisite presentation box, truly immerse yourself in the beauty and expertise of our olfactory world.” With nine 14 ml bottles of Eau de Parfum (Honey Oud, Leather Oud, 71/72 for Turnbull & Asser, Jermyn Street, Bergamotto di Positano, Cherry Blossom, 1962, 1976 and 1988). $320…

From Poglia, the Affumicata candle: “We collaborated with Joya Studios to create a signature candle and scent, Affumicata (“smokey” in Italian), a comforting smell with notes of sandalwood, saddle leather and pepper.

rose

During the days I wrote this post: there were snow flurries and the temperature in Seattle went into the 20s (Fahrenheit); we set the clocks back an hour — the loooooong dark days crept up on me; I picked my last two roses of the year (images at the top of the post); and lots of our delicate plants, including a huge tree fern, were rolled into the garage for the freezing nights, starting a cycle of In, Out, In, Out that will go on till March or April. (Protecting the plants is worth it when summer arrives and the garden is full of scents you normally don’t encounter in the Pacific Northwest.)
