Ivanka Trump’s self-titled debut fragrance is nothing short of romantic. The floral oriental scent begins with a blend of sparkling Italian Bergamot, lush apple and pink peppercorn to evoke sensuality, with memorable middle notes of jasmine, rose and peach blossom. A golden amber, creamy vanilla, patchouli and smooth cedarwood base is included to leave a powerful, lasting impact. Perhaps even more impressive to the recipient will be the thoughtfulness behind the bottle. Trump, an entrepreneur, designer, wife, and mother, designed this fragrance for today’s modern woman who often wears multiple hats. We couldn’t think of a better compliment than being acknowledged as an all-around powerhouse. Price points are $62 for a 1.7-oz. eau de parfum and $78 for a 3.4-oz. bottle.

If there’s one luxury brand that knows about being sexy, it’s Gucci. The Italian fashion house released Gucci Premiere to celebrate possibly the most romantic time period in history— Old Hollywood, and all its glamour. Gucci’s creative director, Frida Giannini, describes the scent as, “womanly, intriguing and as seductive as the perfect couture gown.” A decadent bouquet of bergamot, orange blossom, white flowers and leather provide, the perfume is equal parts fresh and smoky to result in a bottle that is nothing short of sultry. A 30-ml. eau de parfum sells for $63, while a 75-ml. bottle goes for $105. Photo Courtesy of Gucci
