User-generated price comparison website finds that designer names, candy scents and innovative packaging dominate the path to December 25th

This Christmas, shoppers looking for the perfect fragrances have got confectionary on the brain, finds, the European price comparison site which sustains its credibility with customer reviews.

The candy trend has been reported by some of the perfume world’s leading bloggers, and the fashion for sweeter-than-sweet scents has grown so undeniable that this week The New York Times’ beauty section ran a feature on ‘A Little Confection Behind the Ear’.

Surveying both its most reviewed products, and sales of perfume nationwide, can confirm that sugary basenotes is also one of the key Christmas money-makers for fragrance manufacturers.

Top-ranking new designer perfume launches, such as Jimmy Choo’s debut scent, are gaining five-star reviews across the board from users, as well as positive responses from industry professionals.

The shoe-maker’s debut fragrance has already gained 18 reviews from happy customers in the UK – popular success reflected in very healthy sales.

As well as pleasing the current hunger for confectionary flavours, the Choo scent’s fame is also well-timed. As Christmas approaches, extremely well-known designer names benefit from shoppers looking for something ‘extra special’.

And analysts at the price comparison website can see that perfumes which combine that sugary note and a designer flourish are gaining the most steady interest.

Narciso Rodriguez For Her, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle and Swarovski’s Aura, with notes of lychee, are also gaining increased interest in the run up to December 25th.

The current popularity of Swarovski’s Aura, launched in March 2011, also reflects the final key trend in perfumes this Christmas season. As well as an extremely well-known name, the exclusive jeweller has put as much time into its bottle design as the scent contained within it.

Beauty experts confirm that especially when shopping for presents, unique and stand-out bottles are proving resurgent: Issey Miyake, Paco Rabanne’s latest Million line and Anna Sui Rock Me have benefitted from eye-catching packaging.
