Gift Guide: Fancy Fragrances

For the most part, fragrance is an easy gift; you can give the same one to your best friend, your grandma and your boss. And even if they all don't loyally douse their bodies in that scent daily, they might still like the luxury and look of it, displaying the bottle in their bathroom or on a vanity to make the room look nicer. (I know because I do that.)

So if you're planning to go the fragrance route when holiday shopping, give ones with cool packaging and presentations like the ones below. Some are pricey while some are not, but all of them will make people think they got a very cool gift, not just an easy, versatile one.
