Gift Idea Guide: Making Scents of the Holidays for Women

To follow up on the "Making Scents of the Holidays for Men" post, today I'm featuring just a small sampling of the plethora of womens' fragrances available this holiday season. Besides having aisles and aisles of choices, there are a lot of pretty perfume solids out there as well.

This is going to be an even longer post than the Men's, and I'm just scratching the tip of the iceberg here. I've also included some celebrity-created/inspired scents as those are usually popular gift ideas as well. Again, to get to what you need to know, I'm taking away all the fluff and filler, leaving you with the important things: an image of the bottle, name, size, price and the fragrance breakdown.

Enjoy and happy shopping!
