For some reason, people think that fragrance is a “risky” holiday gift because it’s so personal. But think about it—if your friend got you a perfume gift set with super-cute scents you can pick and choose from, would you really be upset? Um, I’m going to go with no. Plus, if you’re gifting these smells to a close friend or family member, you probably already know which smells they vibe with, making a perfume gift set a no-brainer, IMO.
The thing about perfumes, though, is that they can be mad confusing. If you don’t know the difference between an accord and a note, or what makes a clean-musk scent different from a clean-woody scent, making your way through the virtual fragrance aisle can be a little overwhelming. Thankfully for you, I’m an absolute perfume-head. Translation: I know my shit. Ahead, the 12 best perfume gift sets for every single person on your list.

This Variety Perfume Gift Set
Kilian Discovery Mini Set
This perfume gift set does fall on the pricier end, but listen—it gives you sooo many options. Eight fancy mini perfumes for under $200? TBH, doesn’t sound too bad to me. Plus, if your friend only likes a few of these scents, at least they can live on top of their dresser for a nice pop of color.
This Fragrance and Candle Perfume Gift Set
Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Perfume & Candle Gift Set
Why choose between a luxe perfume or a nice candle when you can gift both with this set? A citrus-woody scent is the star in both of these pieces—it’s bold, but not overpowering, making it a great gift option for anyone on your list.
This Five-Piece Perfume Gift Set
D.S. & Durga Greatest Hits Vol. 1 Discovery Set
This perfume gift set checks off all the boxes. It’s not wildly expensive, the bottles—and the packaging it comes in—are sleek and modern, and the scents smell really damn good. Like, how cool would these look in a shelfie?
This Affordable Perfume Gift Set
Le Labo Eau de Parfum Discovery Set
How stoked will your friend be when they open up their gift and see this set? This luxe perfume gift set comes in five distinctive scents, ranging from a spicy wood smell to a clean musk scent. They’re also travel-friendly—you can easily slip them into your bag for a quick touch-up whenever you need a scent boost.
This Fragrance and Lotion Perfume Gift Set
Hermes Twilly Eau De Parfum Set
Got a friend who’s obsessed with Hermès’ Twilly? You can’t really go wrong with this perfume gift set. It’s stocked with a full-size bottle, a mini-bottle, and a whipped body lotion, all in the spicy floral scent. The set also comes packaged in an eye-catching box, so you don’t even need to worry about wrapping it up.
This Floral and Woody Perfume Set
Diptyque L’Art Du Parfum Discovery Set
I mean, you could get your friend a Diptyque candle, but IMO, you’ll score more points with this perfume gift set. It comes with five different scents that highlight some of the brand’s most popular scents. With all these options, your friend can wear ’em solo or layer scents depending on their mood. Talk about a score, amirite?
This Floral Perfume Gift Set
Acqua di Parma Fico di Amalfi Candle and Perfume Set
TBH, buying this perfume gift set for your friend is lowkey the next best thing to a plane ticket to Italy. When they light the candle or spritz on the fragrance, the fruity-floral blend will immediately transport them. Don’t worry about the smell being too sugary—the cedarwood and fig notes round out the body of the scent, adding depth.
This Three-Piece Perfume Set
Jo Malone London Trio of Treasures Set
P.S. Jo Malone has some of the best scents in the game. This perfume gift set gives you three of the brand’s most iconic scents in three very different forms. There’s the super-wearable cologne that leans more clean and woody; the candle that’s fruity without being sickeningly sweet; and the body cream that’s a blend of fruits, florals, and rich seeds.
This Sephora Perfume Gift Set
Sephora Favorites Holiday Perfume Sampler Set
Give your friend the feeling of living in the Sephora fragrance aisle (without, you know, getting in trouble) by giving them the same scents in a box. This mini collection features some of the best cult-favorite scents of the year, so they’ll be able to try a new perfume every day. Then, once they find their fave, they can take the included certificate to any U.S. Sephora store to redeem it for a full-size bottle at no extra cost. Yes, really.
This Makeup and Perfume Gift Set
Givenchy L’Interdit, Mini Mascara & Le Rouge Lip Set
If you’ve got a makeup-lover on your list, this perfume gift set is a must-have. For less than 100 bucks, you get a full-sized version of L’Interdit, a woody-floral with hints of citrus, a lash-extending mini-mascara, and a shiny red lipstick. Win, win, win.
This Aromatherapy Perfume Gift Set
Palermo Body Aromatherapy Oil Set
Behold: an aromatherapy set specifically designed to help you chill the hell out and brighten up. With a mix of three scents—Tranquility (lavender to calm and de-stress you), Vitality (jasmine and sandalwood to clear your mind), and Enlivening (grapefruit to pump you up)—this rollerball set is a must-have for your moodiest of friends…or, really, anyone living in 2020.
This Mix-and-Match Perfume Gift Set
Ellis Brooklyn Adventure A Fragrance Layering Set
Perfumes are all about rules (don’t mix this note with that note; always spray here, not there; yadda, yadda), but if your friend is, uh, not exactly a fan of the establishment, get them this six-piece collection, which is meant to be layered, mixed, and sprayed with reckless abandon.
