One of the best things about giving a fragrance gift for the holidays is you don’t have to worry about finding the right size like you do with fashion, or shade matching as with other beauty gifts. Plus, between perfumes and candles, there are many ways to give a fragrance these days. From genderless parfums to advent calendars to luxurious gift sets to candles that will make them want to stay home, these are the best fragrance gifts of the holiday 2022 season.

Bulgari Le Gemme Tygar Eau De Parfum

Lustrous gold and brown, the tiger’s eye gemstone is known for its protective qualities, especially warding off evil. That influence is clearly seen on the cap of this zesty fragrance, a citrus woody blend that’s part of Bulgari’s recently revamped—and now genderless—Le Gemme collection. Grapefruit mingles with ginger and ambrox for a fragrance like the majestic tiger it’s named for. $349, bulgari.com

Much like Rihanna herself, her first luxury fragrance is gorgeous and elusive—it has already sold out twice. Spicy and sweet, the perfume features notes of magnolia, musk, tangerine and Bulgarian rose. Now it’s available wrapped in a limited-edition brown Fenty scarf just for the holidays. The scarf can be worn as a hair accessory or tied onto your favorite bag. $140, fentybeauty.com
