If I'm ever stuck for present ideas I go to Liberty's Le Labo counter. Le Labo is a tiny parfumerie based between New York and Grasse that handmakes ten delicious scents. Each one is made on demand by two of the best 'noses' in the business. Their mission is to create "sensory shocks" irrelevant of what it costs; As far as i'm concerned - mission accomplished. Each smell is so fresh and pure, nothing like any of the other mass produced big name perfumes. When you've managed to choose a scent, candle or body lotion you can then personalize the bottles with a loving message. Serious brownie points.
