Lore’s Christmas Gift Guide


We are so proud to present The Sweetest Smelling Christmas at Lore Perfumery! 

This year, the air and emotions feel extra sweet, don’t you think? It really is the sweetest Christmas, and what better way to complement those lovely Christmas vibes than getting right into the cheery festive spirit with scent!

We are packed to the brim with sensory treats and scented delights to bring festive joy to all. Whatever your taste, we have something for all types of cravings. And the best part of scent is the happiness and connections it creates so this is one we believe is worth spreading (all year round) but especially at Christmas. Scents to sweeten your spaces, your fine self, your loved ones and life in general. We truly believe that this year is absolutely the sweetest smelling Christmas ever.

We’ve listed our top Christmas picks that are sure to tickle your taste buds and create an absolute feast for your senses, so read on for the sweetest smelling treats…

And remember, everything in our Christmas edit below is Limited Edition so make sure you don’t miss out! Some are great value gift packs which give you the opportunity to try something new and something loved at the same time. Or they’re a wonderful tasting platter of deliciousness from a brand you love. Or, they are specifically Christmas releases that you won’t see again. All in all, they are a spritzingly fabulous selection of gifts both for the people you love and of course, the very important self gift!

Cire Trudon A King’s Christmas 

This year Cire Trudon takes us to the Palace of Versailles with their enchanting collection to celebrate the festive season with the Sun King himself. An opulent, golden Christmas filled with magic, fun and decadence. Each candle is reminiscent of the Versailles gates and iron works with its detailed gold foil decoration, to create each candle they are intricately hand decorated with the gold foil and stenciling inside the vessel before the glass is painted. The boxes are illustrated by Lawrence Mynott and evoke the wonderfully elaborate and theatrical masquerade balls at the Chateau, with the double L symbol representing the royal seal. We think it is one of Cire Trudon’s best festive offerings yet! The vessels look extra stunning this year and we are in love with the fragrances. Of course we have our classic favourites, Ernesto and Gabriel available in the lines, then we have the gorgeous Christmas scents Fir and Gloria back in full force and finally we have our new release Bayonne….a rich and spicy chocolate candle. 

Carriere Freres 2021 Christmas Collection

This year one of our best selling candle ranges heroes the note, Siam Benzoin, a balsamic resin obtained from the bark of several species of trees. This note is used in perfumes, some kinds of incense, as a flavouring and medicine, coming from across Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.. It gives a rich depth to each candle fragrance which is balanced by their individual note. We have Cacao Bean, Fir and Damask Rose – something for everyone’s taste! This whole collection makes for the most glamorous gift, or self gift! The vessels, we mean – look at them! The perfect colour palette, not super Christmas-y, and will suit any decor. As always, Carriere Freres have created a little sensory journey for both our eyes and our noses.

Glasshouse Fragrances – The Colour of Christmas 

My (oh my)…the 2021 Glasshouse Fragrances Christmas Collection is BEAUTIFUL! The red, the different textures, we mean they got us at velvet and glitter packaging…we just love! They have really outdone themselves this year, every inch of the collection has been perfected. This range will make for the perfect gift with a price point for every budget and a fragrance for every style. 

Oh la la, the rich and regal colour of red is the story this year. Our favourite Christmas candles with a variety of fruity, spicy and refreshingly summery scents provide the festive candle staples that sell out in the blink of an eye. Strong, triple scented festive candles plus the incredible packaging make Glasshouse Fragrances Christmas collection a must have!

Heretic Parfum Dirty Gingerbread Candle

A non traditional take on the holiday season and a tongue in cheek scent (and packaging) as per usual with Heretic Parfum. And we love it! Dirty Gingerbread is exactly as you’d want it to smell, spicy and warm with black wax and the perfect balance of naughty and nice this Christmas!
