Awaken a loved one’s senses this festive season with our most popular fragrances for men, women, and even your little ones! From sought-after designer scents to thrilling scented candle gift sets and an abundance of bath bombs, impressing someone you care about this Christmas is no hard task with so many sumptuous and irresistible stocking fillers to choose from.

Not only are these show-stopping gifts designed to show a treasured friend or family member just how much you care this festive period, but they’re also small enough to slip into stockings and wonderfully affordable, too! So, why not carry on reading and discover how you can make someone smile with a stunningly-scented stocking filler?

Instead of opting for generous-sized, costly bottles of beautifully-scented lotions and potions, fragrant stocking fillers are best kept on the more miniature side. Many popular fragrances are available in smaller quantities, allowing you to save money for those more substantial purchases waiting to be excitedly unwrapped under the Christmas tree.

From well-known designers including Marc Jacobs, Chanel, and Thierry Mugler to striking perfumes inspired by world-famous stars like Britney Spears, Beyonce, and Katy Perry, many of these alluring scents can be picked up in petite 30-millilitre and 50-millilitre bottles for this holiday event. 

As choosing a women’s perfume can be so personal, another alluring advantage of opting for a smaller bottle of inviting perfume is that they won’t feel compelled to use up a larger bottle of a fragrance that isn’t quite right for them. Afterall, with such a wide selection of floral, sweet, woody, and even oriental concoctions to explore, picking the perfect scent can be challenging.

In general, perfumes that contain a bouquet of floral and sweet scents are sure to impress the ultra-feminine woman in your life, while spicy and oriental concoctions provide a sexy edge that dominant ladies often adore. Fiery and flirtatious oriental perfumes are also hugely popular for evening wear and romantic date nights, whereas fresh and delicate floral aromas are more suitable for donning during the day.

Bathe in some beautifully-scented bubbles

Is there anything more luxurious than stepping into a hot and steamy bath radiating a refreshingly fragrant aroma? When you treat a loved one to a singular bath bomb or a stunning set of these inviting balls of decadence, you’re encouraging them to draw a comforting hot bath on a chilly, wintery day and really relax.

Ideal for anyone who likes to spend their time listening to their favourite calming melodies or reading the latest novel from their preferred author whilst floating in the bathtub, a bath bomb adds that extra touch of extravagance to any bathroom. Ultra-affordable, comforting bath bombs are available in a plethora of sumptuous scents and sets.

If you know your partner isn’t keen on the lingering fizz of bath bombs, don’t fret: you can pick up a wealth of other scent-packed spa essentials to stimulate their senses, including fragrant bath oils, sumptuous minerals and salts, and even beautiful bubble bath creations. 

Bath bombs tend to come in sets of four, six or more, which can be wrapped up individually to give your significant other even more to discover in their stocking. Another benefit of individually wrapping bath bombs is that it helps to save space, so you can fit much more inside this festive bag full of goodies!

Show you care with scented candles

A wonderful and thoughtful addition to a comforting bubble bath or a romantic dinner setting, scented candles are not only an instant mood-setter but they also help to quickly refresh your home. A quality scented candle is the perfect way to mask any unpleasant smells in your home, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that both you and your guests are sure to enjoy.

In the world of fragrant candles, you’ll find everything from long-lasting and luxurious glass-encased candles, to colourful tea lights available in an astounding assortment of aromas. With big names like Yankee Candle and Stoneglow to explore, you’ll be spoiled for choice especially around this magical time of year.

Indeed, at Christmas you’ll notice a host of festive-themed scents such as spicy and sparkling Cinnamon creations, celebratory fizz-related candles, and incredibly warming candles boasting heart-warming scents including nutmeg, ginger, and many more wintery wonders to suit everyone.

If the idea of lit candles makes you a tad nervous as your recipient has small children or pets running around (or they’re just a little bit forgetful!), LED candles can help to create an equally relaxing ambiance at Christmas time. However, fragrance diffusers and wax melts also make great alternatives to scented candles - just without the atmospheric flame.

Send him a special aftershave aroma

Whether your man is running out of his go-to signature scent or he wants to upgrade from his current bottle of cologne, stuffing his stocking with a masculine scent is sure to impress him. A plethora of attention-grabbing male aftershaves and colognes are just waiting to be worn - perfect for both work and play.

From sophisticated and smooth designer solutions for everyday wear, to spicy and sensual blends specially created for first dates, the right aftershave can make a man feel confident and incredibly desirable. If you’re buying for a family member, opting for something fresh and uplifting is best, while seductive scents are more suitable for romantic interests.

Just like selecting a woman’s perfume, picking up a miniature version of their most-loved designer fragrance is a great idea. If you really want to knock his (Santa) socks off, consider opting for an aftershave gift set complete with practical deodorant and other scented goodies featuring a dash of his favourite designer fragrance. 

Often more affordable, these gift sets can make better stocking fillers than costly, highly-concentrated aftershaves. With ever-popular fragrance-creators including the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier and Hugo Boss, to classic Ralph Lauren and Paco Rabanne concoctions to choose from, treating the special man in your life is a cinch with so many options to delve into.

Remember to treat your little ones, too!

Fresh and exciting scents needn’t be limited to just adults either! Why not introduce your little one to the mood-boosting power of the perfect scent with their very own bottle of eau de cologne or body spray? With their own bottle of kid’s fragrance, they’ll feel just like their mum or dad!

Unlike highly-concentrated perfumes and aftershaves that are designed to last for up to eight hours, kicking off with a less concentrated solution is a great place to start for kids. As perfumes and aftershaves contain a powerful 20-30% concentration of fragrance, they can be slightly overwhelming for little ones.

Instead, try keeping your eyes peeled for either a body spray or an eau de perfume/cologne concoction that’s both more affordable and less concentrated with a 5-15% concentration of fragrance. Created to last for just a few hours, it’s ideal for using on those extra special occasions (just like Christmas day)!

Boasting everything from Pokemon and Frozen-themed eau de toilette sprays, to Hello Kitty and Disney’s Cinderella scented gift sets, each item in these exciting, child-friendly sets can be individually wrapped up to give your kids even more to open on the big day.

Several stocking-filling tips and tricks

Before you dive straight into picking up some bath bombs for a loved one, it’s a good idea to do a little bit of research. Some people have particularly sensitive skin, so it’s worth bearing in mind that bath bombs and some perfumes may cause skin irritation. If in doubt, opting for a fragrance diffuser or scented candle is a much safer option.

Not to mention, before you start splashing the cash, consider just how generously you’re planning on filling your Christmas stockings or sacks. While sacks tend to have more room for all your festive goodies, stockings are just as special and often available in various sizes to meet your gifting requirements, too.

Ultimately, while picking the perfect scented treat for someone you care about can be a little challenging, the gesture comes with a thoughtful and personal touch that’s sure to impress them. So, why not check out some of the fragrant options above and kick off your loved one’s Christmas with an extra-special essence?
