PSA: Contrary to popular belief, perfume is the easiest gift of all time. Like, fine, scent can feel a little personal, but if someone were to give me a cutely packaged box full of pretty little scents, I’d be thrilled (and, like, why wouldn’t you be?). So, this holiday season, I plan on checking every single person off my list with a perfume gift set totally tailored to their personality, whether it’s a set of roll-ons for my friend who’s constantly traveling, a full-sized cult-favorite for my label-loving sister, or a sampling of clean scents for (my hard-to-please) vegan roommate. Ahead, the 17 best perfume gift sets of the year.

Best Chanel Perfume Gift Set
Chanel Coco Forever The Essentials for the Weekend Set
This perfume gift set is a total power move. It comes equipped with Chanel’s classic scent Coco Mademoiselle (which features notes of orange, patchouli, and Turkish rose) and a lightweight, velvety body oil. Wear ’em alone or combine them for a delightful scent that lasts all day.
Best Floral Perfume Gift Set
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Set
If the fact that I’ve been wearing Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb since high school doesn’t convince you to try it, then this super-pretty perfume gift set definitely will. The light-pink box is filled with three variations of the brand’s cult-favorite scent (which, BTW, smells like an explosion of jasmine, orange blossom, and patchouli): a teeny-tiny bottle, a roll-on, and a classic spray.
Best Perfume and Lipstick Gift Set
Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Travel Set
Prepare to be the best gift-giver of your friend group when you show up to the holiday party with this super-luxe perfume gift set from Tom Ford. For less than $85, you get a travel size of Soleil Blanc (a floral-amber scent), a shimmery body oil, and a shiny red lipstick. Win, win, win.
Prettiest Perfume Gift Set
Aerin Radiant Floral Rollerball Set
There’s like a zero percent chance you’ll buy this perfume gift set and not keep it for yourself—it’s that g’damn pretty. Tucked into a sweet little makeup bag are two roll-on perfumes by Aerin: Mediterranean Honeysuckle (a fruity-floral blend) and Hibiscus Palm (a warm combo of lotus flower, ginger, and coconut milk).
Best Perfume and Lotion Gift Set
Hermès Twilly d’Hermès Gift Set
Got a friend who’s obsessed with Hermès’ Twilly? This perfume gift set is stocked with a full size bottle of the powdery floral scent, a mini bottle (maybs for their desk?), and a creamy body lotion—so you can’t really go wrong.
Coolest Perfume Gift Set
Moschino Women’s Coffret Set
Other than the fact that the five fragrances in this gift set smell v good, they’re also, like, ridiculously good looking. I mean, imagine how cool they’d look lined up on a dresser? Uh, yeah, good luck actually gifting this one.
Best Candle and Perfume Gift Set
Diptyque Floral Candle & Eau de Toilette Set
Suuure, you could save up and get your friend that Diptyque candle they’ve been wanting for years, or you could take things to the next level with this genius candle and perfume gift set. You’ll get three of the brand’s most iconic scents (I’m obsessed with Baies, for anyone who cares) in both candle and fragrance form, which is basically the definition of a score.
Best Clean Perfume Gift Set
Sephora Favorites Clean Fragrance Sampler
Searching for the perfect gift for your friend who’s alllll about natural beauty? This perfume gift set comes with seven clean fragrances, including the dreamiest floral-fruity scent from By Rosie Jane (think: pear, jasmine, and fresh-cut grass) and a warm, spicy vanilla blend by The 7 Virtues.
Best Jo Malone Perfume Gift Set
Jo Malone London Cologne Collection
I’ll let you in on a little secret: Jo Malone perfumes are probably my favorite gift to give. My friends are immediately stoked when they see the brand’s packaging, since they know the scents are wearable enough for every single day—not just the ~fancy~ ones. This gift set is loaded with five scents (Wood Sage & Sea Salt is a fave amongst my friends who love soft, low-key perfumes) packaged in a cute little box, so you don’t even need to worry about wrapping it up.
Best Luxe Perfume Gift Set
Le Labo Santal 33 & AnOther 13 Set
If your friend can ID a whiff of Santal 33 a mile away but has never actually gone out and bought it, you have a responsibility to get them this perfume gift set. It’s definitely on the pricier side, but the two vials of Le Labo’s cult-favorite scents will last way longer than your anxiety over buying it.
Best Chloé Perfume Gift Set
Chloé Signature Perfume Set
A rosy perfume with hints of cedarwood will become your friend’s new go-to scent, especially if they’re already obsessed with Chloé fragrances. This gift set also comes with a mini body lotion, which will look ridiculously cute on a bathroom vanity.
Best Aromatherapy Perfume Gift Set
Palermo Body Aromatherapy Oil Set
Behold: an aromatherapy set specifically designed to help you chill the hell out and brighten up. With a mix of three scents—Tranquility (lavender to calm and de-stress you), Vitality (jasmine and sandalwood to clear your mind), and Enlivening (grapefruit to pump you up)—this rollerball set is a must-have for your moodiest of friends…or, really, anyone living in 2019.
Best Mix-and-Match Perfume Gift Set
Ellis Brooklyn Adventure A Fragrance Layering Set
Perfumes are all about rules (don’t mix this note with that note; always spray here, not there; yadda, yadda), but if your friend is, uh, not exactly a fan of the establishment, get them this six-piece collection, which is meant to be layered, mixed, and sprayed with reckless abandon.
Best Sephora Perfume Gift Set
Sephora Favorites Fall Trends Box
Give your friend the feeling of living in the Sephora fragrance aisle (without, you know, getting arrested) by giving them the same scents in a box. This mini collection features some of the best cult-favorite scents of the year, so they’ll be able to try a new perfume every day. Then, once they find their fave, they can take the included certificate to any U.S. Sephora store to redeem it for a full-size bottle at no extra cost. Yes, really.
Best Hair Perfume Gift Set
Byredo Triplé Gagnat Fleurs Miniature Hair Perfume Trio
Who says perfume is just for skin? Uh, not me. This trio of mini fragrances comes in an array of floral scents that will make your hair smell like you just ran through a garden, Jane Austen–style—or, even better, like you just showered (even though we all know you’re on day-three hair right now).
Best Variety Perfume Gift Set
Maison Margiela Replica Memory Box
Ten perfumes for the low, low price of $35?! Hey, even if your friend falls in love with only a few of these scents, they can at least line the rest of the gorgeously colored liquids along their dresser for a cheap flash of color.
Best Shower and Perfume Gift Set Duo
Philosophy Amazing Grace Eau de Toilette Set
Your friend will smell as sweet as a lily of the valley with this gift set that includes a spray perfume, body lotion, and shower gel, all in a clean, floral scent. Warning: They might feel like they’ve been transported to a field of flowers when they open these up.
