If you are still perplexed over what to get for loved ones this Christmas or you just don't have the time till the very last minute, then Escentials is definitely the place to go. 

Why Escentials you might think? Well, not only are you taking a beauty trip into the most exciting store in town, you'll also find personalised services such as fragrance profiling and discover a spellbinding selection of the finest beauty products from around the world.

It's my go-to place when I need a gift to impress and here are my favourite picks from this year's collections. 


This luxurious Petite Chérie Christmas Set (S$235) from Annick Goutal would make an excellent gift for the ultimate princess, perfect for girls who like sweet, fruity scents made for Spring time! 


Another favourite Spring/Summer fragrance is the Christmas Set Orange Sanguine from Atelier Cologne and best of all, it includes a 200ml and another travel-size 30ml EDP, plus a shower gel, body lotion and leather case, all for just $S340. It can’t get any better than this!


From the creator of one of the most iconic beauty products of all time, YSL’s Touche Eclat comes a true beauty cult classic - Coffret BAUME DE ROSE Flaconette. This limited edition set takes the winning Baume de Rose formula and steps it up a notch with an added hit of colour for perfect party lips.


The Extra Pur (SOLD OUT, sorry!) is a premium gift designed and packaged in a colourful, qualitative cardboard material box that can be kept after use. I love such gifts because it spoils the receiver with the selection of soaps! This way, they can explore different fragrances and narrow down their favourites the next time they shop for themselves.


Diptyque candles are amongst the best sellers every Christmas and this year is no different. I love the smell of it, the looks of it burning in the corner of my room and especially the way it makes me feel when I cosy up in bed with a cuppa milo on a rainy stay home evening. This Holiday Season Candle Set is already sold out but, there's still a plethora of amazing scents to choose from at the Escentials store!


At Escential's you'll find Penhaligon's, an unusual and magical range of luxuries with an incredibly rich heritage. The scents are distinct and whimsical, created for the discerning eccentrics of today. 

This Gentlemen's Collection Gift Set (SS90) contains 5ml of Blenheim Bouquet, Juniper Sling, Bayolea, Sartorial and Opus 1870. Don't you just love the limited edition tin?

The best-selling feminine fragrance, Artemisia, is available in this charming Christmas set. The Artemisia Fragrance Collection (S$260) contains one 100ml Artemisia EDP and one 300ml Shower Gel. 


If you are looking are bath and bodycare products, may I suggest REN? A four piece gift (S$38) which contains 50ml travel sizes of their best-selling Moroccan Rose range and their new scent for 2014, uplifting Revivo Tonic.

So I hope this guide alleviated some of your headache and gives you some options when you do your last minute shopping tomorrow! Also, check out the awfully cute Mina Kwon Displays when you enter the Escentials flagship store at Paragon this Christmas! 

Happy shopping!
