A special something that smells incredible—a chic new perfume, the most beautiful candle, or a jasmine-inflected hair oil—makes a memorable, charming, and sophisticated gift. Made clean, without the potentially harmful-to-health hormone disruptors, carcinogens, and irritants allowed in conventional fragrances, every item on our shopping list this year is enchanting enough that we find it hard to resist doing a little shopping for ourselves along the way (hello, Dirty Chai…hi, Shiso…bonjour, Bois de Balincourt).
