If you are a regular reader of ÇaFleureBon you know I don’t believe in blind buying perfume as a present unless it is a much-wanted bottle and I have reservations even then. Even if you think you know what they want, true perfumistas are likely to spring for that bottle without telling you it’s off of their “Must…Have…Now” list and they are already onto the next acquisition, most likely something unobtainable, a limited edition of 20 and found only in Dubai. It is time to think outside the flacon. This year’s 2016 Holiday Gift Guide includes over a dozen scented treats that will please even the pickiest perfume peeps. It will take two posts to fit all the glorious gifts into our guide.
The winners are two of our readers who we had a tie for Part 1. Tammy and I were the judges and felt their comments related back to fragrance and its power to heal and offer solasce. Everyone who entered deserves a gift as the comments were so heartfelt and it was a difficult choice. Thank you for sharing these very painful and in some cases joyful aspects of your life and know all of you are in our prayers and have our best wishes for the Holiday Season. There will be one more editors' pick tomorrow, for someone who left a comment on both this post and Part 2. The 10 other winners will be announced soon.
