Like Gwen Stefani’s red lips or Rihanna’s nails, a signature scent is a key component of your overall style — not to mention a well-chosen (and packaged) fragrance makes a fail-proof gift for just about anyone on your list.

And this season’s smattering of scents — from Lady Gaga’s exotic “Fame” to Marc Jacobs flirty and fresh “Dot” —  make it easy to find the perfect perfume for your — or that impossible-to-gift person on your list. From lighter scents to richer perfumes, there’s something for everyone.

Whether you’re looking to switch up your signature scent or for a guaranteed-to-please holiday gift, you’ll find a scent to suit your (or her) style.

Rich, sultry scents are dominating the latest fragrance offerings, with the deeply sensual sandalwood a main player. But for those who perfume floral notes, there are plenty of those to choose from as well.

When it comes to choosing a fragrance, whether for yourself or for a friend or family member, it’s not about following trends — it’s about finding the fragrance that fits the wearer’s personal style.

Match the mood of the perfume to the vibe your (or her) wardrobe gives off. Of course, if you’re buying for yourself, keep in mind that every scent smells different on everyone, so make sure you sniff before you buy.

Check out our round-up of the season’s top scents to freshen up your seasonal style — or one of the ladies on your holiday gift list.
