The 18th of June (or the 17th, depending on the moon) will mark the start of the month of Ramadan, the month of fasting. Ramadan is followed by Eid al-Fitr – The Sugar Feast. On this day people like to dress up and spend time with their family and friends after they have finished the Eid prayer. It’s also tradition to give each other gifts.
We’ve selected some excellent products from our assortment of fragrances that will make for fantastic gifts, or a special treat for yourself on Eid. Click the product names to see our discounted prices!
For the Akhis:
One Million – Paco Rabanne
A great scent, loved by many. One Million always ranks high in the list of fragrances that women enjoy on a man. This makes a great gift for your husband. Who doesn’t love snuggling up to a delicious-smelling significant other after Iftaar?
Eros – Versace
Something different, something powerful. This gift set is a great present for the brother who appreciates the complexities of scent. Eros will surely be appreciated with its stunning bottle and slightly sharp notes of mint and vanilla. An unexpected twist with a great outcome. Combined with the shower gel this scent will last forever on the skin.
Spicebomb – Viktor & Rolf
Design duo Viktor & Rolf are well known for their successful fragrances. After releasing Flowerbomb in 2005, they couldn’t leave the male population without an equivalent. Like Eros, Spicebomb is a very unique scent, however, a lot more wearable. This is surely something a man in his 20’s might enjoy. He might be studying at university or just landed his first proper job. In any case, the subtle yet powerful and enticing Spicebomb will fit him perfectly.
A newer version of the classic 70’s scent. Want to show some appreciation to your old man, your older brother of maybe surprise the neighbourhood khal with something nice? Gentlemen Only by Givenchy is your best bet. The original is a staple in every gentleman’s fragrance collection and this beautiful combination of woody, spicy and musky aromas makes for a brilliant gift.
For the Ukhtis:
Lady Million – Paco Rabbane
Decided to buy your husband the One Million fragrance after reading our recommended gifts for men? Great! Why don’t you make it a couple thing and nip this Lady Million fragrance as well. Despite being completely different the fragrances go great together and your husband will love it!
Flawless – Fake Bake
Whether you wear Hijab, Niqaab or none of the above we all want to look our best on Eid and how could our look be complete without a nice even tan to go along with it? This Fake Bake gift set is exactly what you need. A swift application allows you to spend some extra time on your hair and make-up. Alongside a self-tanning liquid, you will receive a lip gloss, a mitt (a necessity – orange hands are not cute, love) and a wrist brand.
Alien – Thierry Mugler
Alien is a very sophisticated scent with combinations of oriental and woody notes. In order to appreciate this fragrance the receiver should be a fan of heavy scents. With only three main notes but a lot of personality this fragrance is definitely something of a magic elixir. One of a kind, just like the person you’re gifting it to.
Flowerbomb – Viktor & Rolf
We’re definitely on a roll here. To complete our recommended gifts we are closing with an all-time fave. Who doesn’t have a bottle of this fragrance in their collection? Oh, you actually know someone who isn’t in possession of this bottle full delightfulness? Show them what they’ve been missing and I promise they will be forever thankful 😉
