Our team at Outgift had the pleasure of unwrapping one of 524 Candle Lab's monthly soap boxes as well as a few other goodies. Our favorite soap bar was the luxurious Black Orchid which twists fruity and floral notes of mandarin and jasmine with the spicy and invigorating scents of ginger and black pepper. These monthly soap boxes come with two other scents: Rose, which makes you smell like a walking flower bouquet, and Sweet Blossom which is the perfect confection of fruity clean citrus and sweet vanilla, caramel undertones.
Sign up for your quarterly soap box subscription for just $12/three months right here.
If an expensive bottle of perfume is a little out of your price range, 524 Candle Lab's small batch, handcrafted soy wax candles are the perfect gift for $20. No. 2 - Blackberry & Sage - instantly fills the entire room up with the smell of ripe blackberries and dusty sage, a scent good enough to eat. Make it apart of your candle collection or gift it to someone who need a little zen in their life.
524 Candle Lab's Guide to Gifting the Perfect Fragrance
Buying perfume for the woman in your life can be daunting because it’s so personal; fragrance evokes different memories and associations in everyone. What does she want to be reminded of and what ideas does she want to project when wearing a scent? Moreover, everyone’s skin chemistry is unique: a perfume will react and transform depending on who’s wearing it. However, the rewards of navigating these infinitely complex waters can be great. There are few gifts more luxurious and appreciated than a thoughtfully-chosen, beautifully packaged perfume.
Here are some tips on picking a fragrance based on personality:
1 - The Romantic
For the romantic, bouquet-loving woman in your life, selecting a delicate floral perfume seems obvious. Rose fragrances are classic, but fragrances featuring soft, engaging white florals such as jasmine and gardenia are another intriguing option.
2 - The Minimalist
For the Helmut Lang-wearing, modern woman, I’d recommend scents that are clean and unisex, with prominent citrus and woody notes.
3 - The Bourbon-Drinker
For the tough, modern-day frontierswoman, these are two fragrances that blend floral notes with richer and warmer notes of leather and sandalwood. They’re for free spirits under big evening skies.
4 - The Flirt
These perfumes are fruity, sweet, instantly appealing, and inherently flirtatious.
5 - The Vamp
For the Sophia Lorens that walk among us mere mortals, here are a few perfumes that are bold, mysterious, and undeniably sexy.
6 - The Health Guru
For the woman who wants to avoid synthetics, these perfumers craft gorgeous perfumes using all-natural ingredients.
Aftelier - Cepes and Tubereuse
Honoré des Prés - Nu Green
7 - The Fail-safe Option
And if you’re still stumped, there’s always the iconic and eternally chic Chanel Nº 5, the little black dress of perfume.
