I’ve curated this gift guide with some of my favorite options to help get you started. Whether it’s a brother or a boyfriend, your mom or BFF, there’s something here for everyone.

Kahina Fez Body Serum $38 – $98

This body serum is one of the most luxurious personal care items around, making it a gorgeous gift. A blend of nutrient-dense healing oils including argan, watermelon, sunflower, olive, and coconut oils  deeply moisturize and improve elasticity. Applied to damp skin after bathing, Fez absorbs quickly for a satin finish. Beyond the high-quality oils, the calming yet exotic scent is what makes the Fez Body Serum truly gift worthy. It evokes the earthy, warm fragrance of Morocco, where rose and orange blossoms are layered with patchouli, sandalwood, ylang ylang and anchored with a dash of spice. Fez is perfect for the global traveler or friend with insatiable wanderlust.

About Susannah Compton

Susannah Compton is the founder and formulator behind Florescent, a line of 100% botanical perfumes she blends in small batches from organic and wild crafted aromatics. Plant-based skincare and cosmetics are a way of life for Susannah, who writes about clean beauty and the benefits of botanical ingredients for No More Dirty Looks, Thoughtfully Magazine and Integrity Botanicals. Florescent, however, is Susannah’s personal expression of healthy beauty. Susannah has been working with botanical aromatics for years, blending first for therapeutic purposes before delving into the art of perfumery. Having rarely experienced the depth and complexity of true botanicals in conventional perfume, she learned the art of blending and created what her heart desired — a scent that would move her the way perfume should. In search of those elevating, ethereal bouquets of scent, Susannah honed her skills behind the perfume bench. She launched Florescent in the spring of 2015 to share the lush experience and pleasing ritual of real perfume.
