Perfume is one of the most personal gifts
It’s hard to give a gift more meaningful and intimate than a fragrance you want to wear for the rest of your life. WHY? In part, because perfume is so personal it can be one of the hardest presents to buy, so when you get it right the impact is incredibly moving. And what’s more, every time they were the perfume they will think of you. So we’re here to help you choose the perfect perfume as a gift for someone else.
The perfect gift is thoughtful, generous and original and delivers surprise, theatre and impact. We’ve got that covered.
Electimuss bottles are an elegant addition to any fragrance collection, they are beautiful, substantial bottles and at a 100ml they feel extravagant and luxurious. Our perfumes are made with rare, fine ingredients and the high concentration (between 25-30%) ensures they have great longevity and projection, so they last very well too.
So now it’s down to thoughtfulness, to finding the right fragrance – so here’s our gifting guide of 2021 to help you find the perfect present.

FINDING THE RIGHT PERFUME
Step 1 Scent sleuthing
It may sound obvious but if you choose what you like, it’s unlikely it’s what someone else would choose for themselves (we’ve all made that mistake). So consider the person you are buying for and do a bit of sleuthing to work out what they like. You don’t need to be obvious, there are clues everywhere.
SPOTTING THE CLUES
What are their general likes and dislikes? What’s their style – are they minimalist, edgy or classic? Are they foodies and do they prefer spicy foods sweet treats or savoury? Do they like to stand out with bright colours and statement pieces, or are they more subtle in their presence. What do they already have in their fragrance collection already and where are the gaps? There is always space in a collection for a new scent, for different seasons and occasions. Are you looking for a romantic scent or even a fragrance that you can share? Are you looking for something seductive? A statement scent or something more versatile and wearable everyday?
Now look at their fragrance and home fragrance collections (tip look for the half empty bottles to see which they really use and like). Look at the notes and the styles of fragrance they prefer. Fragrances generally fall into the following fragrance types: floral, fresh, amber, fougere, woody, chypre, gourmand, take a look at the scents they favour. And also consider whether they tend to like scents where individual ingredients are easily identified (like rose and oud), or whether they choose a more complex blend.
