My dear friend, Mandy Aftel (shown above), has put together a lovely gift guide of her amazing Aftelier Perfumes creations, and I just had to share them with you!
☞ For the person who would enjoy applying perfume from a sumptuous Sterling flask: Silver Perfume Flask ($300).
According to Mandy Aftel, "Everything about perfume should be beautiful, including its vessel, which led me to design this sterling silver flask complete with a silver dauber. The flask holds a little less than a quarter-ounce of perfume and is handmade by a silversmith in Mexico. Carried in a bag or pocket and refilled over the years, it will become part of your daily ritual and part of your history." Refills available starting at $140.
☞ For the person who likes to keep their options open: Mini Trio of perfumes ($155) Select 3 perfumes in the most irresistible tiny bottles, nestled in a purple or orange silk pouch.
☞ For the person who wants to learn how to make natural perfume: Natural Perfume Workbook and Essence Kit ($700).
☞ For the person who loves scent but may not want to wear it on their skin:
Perfume Pomander ($75). Choose from any of our 20 liquid perfumes.
☞ For the person who can't decide which one of our solid perfumes is their favorite: Let them pick two! Double Solid Perfume in Sterling Case ($550).
