Gift Idea Guide: Making Scents of the Holidays for Men

During the holidays, lots of brands offer their scents in beautiful packaging, extra goodies with purchase, limited edition versions, etc. There have been so many in the past couple of weeks that my head has been spinning with all the new releases.

With the holidays just around the corner, I figured now is a good time to show off some of the season's newer scents and some holiday editions, in case you're still looking for a last minute gift idea or something new to wear to all those holiday parties you've been invited to!

Like I said, there's quite a bit out there, so this is going to be quite a long post (a post focusing on Women's will follow). 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!
