And everyone knows there’s no better way to say Happy Holidays.

1. For You Crush: Marc Jacobs, Decadence Eau So Decadent EDT
This perfect I’d-like-to-get-to-know-you-better scent is sheer, juicy-sweet and sumptuous. Overflowing with fruit and white flowers, the pretty eau starts off with crisp pear and tart black currants wrapped in a wreath of green ivy. A bouquet of heady jasmine, magnolia and lily of the valleys bursts forward before being smoothed into a hypnotic and luminous combination of amber, raspberries and cashmere wood.  It’s available for $117 for 50 ml and $150 for 100 ml at Nordstrom stores across Canada.

2. For Your Long-time Girlfriend: Chloe, Absolu de Parfum EDP
Velvety and floral, this intensified and spicy version of Chloe’s original floral scent is one part glorious freedom another part sensual collaboration. With its bouquet of fresh flowers and prominence of the Damascena rose, the scent sparkles before it mystifies with a touch of warm patchouli and sultry vanilla. It’s available for $135 for 50 ml and $170 for 75 ml at Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.

3. For Your Fiancée: Thierry Mugler, Wonder Bouquet EDP
With an olfactory combination of freshly baked bread and flowers, this is one parfum that comforts as equally as it intrigues. Lily of the valley, orange blossom and jasmine blooms lead the way while being nestled in a mixture of warm beeswax, brioche, vanilla and hazelnuts. It’s available for $195 for 80 ml at Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.

4. For Your Mystery Woman: Prada, La Femme EDP
Spicy and sultry, this fragrance releases spiced patchouli, frangipani, ylang-ylang and tuberose notes on first spritz, making a dramatic and engaging entrance. The perfume eases in earthy and vibrant vetiver with smooth vanilla for a layer of warm intensity. It’s available for $136 for 50 ml and $180 for 100 ml at Hudson’s Bay and Nordstrom stores across Canada.

5. For Your Wife: Ralph Lauren, Woman EDP
Nothing says I love you more intimately than a new fragrance and this alluring eau is all about her. A feminine and romantic spritz, this perfume is symbolic of commitment and true love with its inviting blend of black currant, rhubarb and pear wrapped in heady tuberose, orange blossom and Turkish rose and set against a warm backdrop of sandalwood, hazelnut and woody notes. It’s available for $112 for 50 ml at Sephora stores across Canada.
