Fragrance gift sets, compared to individual perfume gifts, remain underrated. Choosing between a perfume and a set is so difficult when there are so many choices on the market.
Buying a fragrance for your loved ones is always a heart-warming gesture. Some go beyond purchasing a singular item. Buying a fragrance speaks volumes of affection and care for anyone. Why? Because buying a fragrant assortment requires much thought and deliberation. So what includes a fragrance gift set and why should you prefer it? Read on to know.
What is in it?
Yes, that is exactly the first amazement a fragrance gift set brings forth. Wrapped in beautiful packing, the delicate fragrant bottle often supplements
A body lotion
A body mist
A shower gel
Some sets for her include shampoo and conditioner as well. A set for him often contains
Hand washes, etc.
Why go for a fragrance gift set?
Are you one of those who look down upon buying a fragrance gift set? The following reasons will change your perception.
Smell and feel great all over
Fond of a particular scent but cannot get enough of it? A gift set with forms of scented products is the perfect way to layer yourself all-in-all.
Perfumes are the best way to smell great. Yet even the best of brands do not have the desired longevity and staying power. Some stronger scents deliver a too heady note not wearable for everyday use. So if you want to wrap yourself with your signature scent and get recognized with it, using the items in a set is the perfect option.
The range of scented products like moisturizer and body mists enables you to carry your favorite scent a bit longer. A freshly-applied fragrance gets concentrated at the point of application. The products in the gift set deliver the scent to every part if one uses it. The shampoo scents your hair while the body wash cleanses and leaves a nice aroma. A body mist keeps your skin refreshed at any time of the day. A moisturizer in the same scent conditions soothes and perfumes every cell.
A pleasant head-to-toe aroma makes you feel fresh and energized. It also enhances your appeal with a subtle fresh scent all day long. Love your shower time? Buy a three-piece or four-piece fragrance set for a friend, family member or yourself.
Best gear for scent layering
The scent enthusiasts have come up with scent layering. It is here that a fragrance gift set comes in handy. A perfume set enables you to pick up all the body essentials and treat yourself to luxury. You may ask yourself why do I need it if I already have lotion, shampoo, body mist, etc.
Well, you may be self-sufficient in all skin-care essentials. But the scents may not go together well. If the scents do not match each other, it does not contribute to an alluring appeal.
Do you have time to pick and choose all the essentials with matching scent? It is a rare possibility owing to the fast-paced life routines of ours.
A fragrance gift set serves the purpose of scent layering. All the ingredients are packed together for a reason. That is to match all the scents and deliver a perfectly pleasant smell all over.
An attractive bargain
You might have the budget. You may have the time to pick and choose. Yet, a fragrance gift set is always a too attractive and lucrative deal to pass on. Sometimes they come tagged with a price that is a bit more expensive than its perfume counterpart. Often these are available at a discounted price. Perfume sets are great bargains. This is true particularly around the holiday season and special yearly events.
Owing to their attractive packing and fair price, they make excellent gift items. Then some gift sets come with miniature bottles of different scents from the same brand. They draw the bargain hunters. If you are looking for a great deal, you can own different scents for the price of one.
With a wallet that is string-tight, a fragrance set enables you to make a one-time investment on a designer brand. You can up your scent collection every season. This way you are not forced to keep on using the same scent till the bottle finishes off. It is a small price to pay to own varying numbers of unique odors from famous designer noses.
If you are not fond of a whole set of items, you can always gift away the extra. Give it to your co-worker. Place a hand wash liquid in your office kitchen. Keep a scented candle in the guest bathroom.
Perfect on-the-go add-on
A fragrance gift set is a convenient travel accessory. With airport restrictions on luggage, one cannot keep more than 100 ml of liquid while on international flights. The mini bottled fragrances solve this travel hassle. You can take your signature scent wherever you go. This is a blessing for individuals who travel quite frequently. There is no need to check in your scent. There is no risk of your scent bottle being broken in your suitcase. Keep the scent bottle from the set in your hand luggage.
Some of the sets are travel-sized. They even have deodorant sticks, shampoos or after-shave balm. The convenience they present for an over-night or short trip is patent.
Small pocket or purse-size miniature perfumes in a set may act as the saving bell at the last minute. Select one odor from the set and spray a little before an urgent meeting or a surprise crush encounter. You can treat yourself to a whiff of freshness in case of hot humid weather or while taking a ride in a crowded metro. Feel fresh and fantastic on the go.
A timeless souvenir
Perfumes are always a win-win gift item. Convert it into a fragrance gift set and voila. Chocolates get eaten. Flowers wither away. A dinner date may vanish from memories. But pair any gift item with a fragrance set and seal the memories for times to come.
Science proves that certain smells and odors back links our memory lanes. Vanilla reminds of homemade cookies baked by grandma. Sweet-smelling marshmallows take us back to winters' barbecues. Rose scent turns back the clock to a stroll through a park. The smell of Leather is huge in reminding us of vintage furniture.
To rekindle those memories, spray a few spurts of the connecting scent. So if you want to make a moment memorable for your loved one, go for a set of tantalizing smelling scents. Your loved ones will always cherish the smell and a special occasion whenever their nose meets the odor.
Ups the game
Have you heard of the Fragrance hierarchy? It goes something like that.
The last place is for any brand. The receiving party may or may not like the scent.
After that comes a top-shelf brand selected after much diligence and care.
Then comes their favorite perfume. But it carries no element of surprise for your loved one. They already love it.
Then comes a fragrance gift set containing the favorite brand.
And the very top position remains for a gift set selected by you. It carries a class and a touch of exclusivity. A spectacular perfume that your loved one adores complemented by other beauty products.
You can include a set of scented candles with the perfume for her. For him, select a beard oil in a scent that supplements the cologne.
The choices are many. Every one of them conveying a message of deep affection, love, and care to the opposite party.
Perfect for all
A fragrance knows no limits of age or sex. Liked by either sex and adorned at any age, it is an accessory that is one-size-fits-all.
Designers at the fragrance industry work to create unisex sets. There are sets available for couples too besides her and his varieties.
Then there are gift sets assembled to draw teenage and younger consumer groups. Packed in striking and smart packaging. Depicting their favorite superheroes or cartoon characters, they make a wow-present. Kids do not mind the smell. They are easy to please. As long as they have exclusive designs to show off at their bath cabinets or dressing tables.
Special occasion fragrance consists of smells particular to a specific age cohort. So for younger age group musky smelling and intriguing brands are in. While for the older generation, classic gift sets are great options. For ladies, celebrity-endorsed or star designed scents steal the show.
Special occasion fragrance should always carry an element of surprise. That is best delivered by a fragrance gift set. If the selection is by you and caters to the likes of the receiving party, all the better.
A singular perfume bottle may serve the purpose. If you want to up the game, then go for a set. Truth be told, we all like a bit extra as a present.
A fragrance bottle complemented with hand and body lotion. A scented candle with a scented bubble bath stirs up emotions like nothing else. An eau de cologne with an aftershave balm or a scented beard oil conveys thoughtfulness and care on your part. It is a pleasant surprise that helps to meet the expectations of the opposite party.

Why is alcohol used in fragrance?
In our most recent blog post, we answer the common question: why do so many perfumes contain alcohol? The answer probably isn’t what you’re expecting. Fragrance brands don’t add alcohol to make their fragrances weaker. And the alcohol itself isn’t at all similar to consumable alcohol. Learn what kind of alcohol is used in perfumes and why it helps fragrances project better in our full blog post (link this, too).

A review of Desert Oud, our premier oud cologne, by Fragrantica editor John Biebel.
Desert Oud is Habibi’s oud cologne targeted towards men of all ages but suitable for any fan of rich woody notes, spices, tobacco, and subtle fruit and green notes.
John Biebel, an editor at Fragrantica, recently had this to say about it:
Desert Oud is the most woody of the perfumes from Habibi, a fragrance that has a feeling of familiarity when it's sprayed on. It is an airy wood: not quite a driftwood sensation, but one of wood mixing with a breeze, like a campfire the next day, long after the embers have settled down and grown cold.
It is also a floral wood, with flashes of jasmine and tuberose definitely present. You can detect a sweet peach at the opening. Speaking of openings, this one is very bright and luminous, starting in with a bold mixture of citruses. There is no heavy oud here, much more aspirated and airy, something that is well suited to autumn. It’s also backed with a gentle rose which is quite beautiful and subtle.

Candle-lit dinners are always a big hit when it comes to romantic encounters. Besides that, a flickering candle symbolizes hope in the darkest of hours. A sense of purity, cleanliness, and festivity. The light of candle exudes spiritualism despite its trivial size.
