Fact: fragrance is one of those gifts that continues to give year-round, with the amazing ability to simultaneously trigger happy memories and give you a serious mood-boost with just one spritz. Your BFF will obsess over a blinged-out holiday version of her favorite scent, which she'll completely deem worthy of an Instagram post, but for those who can't quite pin down a signature fragrance, discovery sets that include multiple options are the way to go. Here, we've rounded up 11 options everyone on your list is guaranteed to love.

3. My Burberry Festive Edition Eau de Parfum
The gold glitter floating in the amber liquid almost makes it seem like your favorite sweet pea, freesia, and geranium-based scent had a lovechild with a sparkly holiday snowglobe.
Burberry | $125
4. Marc Jacobs Decadence Gold Eau de Parfum
The plum, jasmine sambac, vetiver, and amber blend is decadent as it is, but when combined with its 24-Karat exterior, it becomes the very definition of the word.
Marc Jacobs | $127
5. Elizabeth and James House of Nirvana Black Collection
The quickest way to reach Nirvana? This beyond-decadent set, which includes a body oil, candle, dry shampoo, hand cream, and full-size fragrance, each infused with the signature Nirvana Black woodsy-violet blend.

6. Gucci Guilty Platinum Edition
More like a guilty pleasure—you won't be able to stop spritzing this blend of geranium, pink pepper, and amber into the air. It's defintiely a sexy scent, but a twist of lilac prevents it from coming on too strong.

This gorgeous set of soft floral and vibrant citrus scents is so indulgent, you can almost hear the hook to the Billy Joel hit playing as you spritz them on.
Tocca | $42
10. Christian Louboutin Women's Parfum Coffret
We wouldn't advise bringing this gift to your White Elephant party—or "Dirty Santa" if you're nasty. This holy trinity is so coveted, the chances of creating enemies runs high post-gift reveal.
Christian Louboutin | $95
11. Angel by Mugler Etoile de Rêves Eau de Parfum
The gourmand scent you practically bathed in back in the '90s just got dressed up for your holiday party—can't you tell she's so thrilled to be there?—and the notes of praline, vanilla, and patchouli are just as intense as you remember.
Thierry Mugler | $135
