When it comes to choosing a Christmas gift for the ones closest to you, buying them perfume may not be at the top of your list. But truth is—it's the perfect way to show them you've been thinking about what suits them.
For most people, when they think about their very first fragrance, they would say that it was chosen for them by a family member or a close friend. A fragrance is a very personal gift—because you have to think about the person's personality and what they like. You will have to think a little bit harder because you need to express that person's personality in scent. And that makes it all the more thoughtful.
When choosing a scent for someone, you're telling them how much they mean to you and how you see them as a part of your life. It's your way of saying that the fragrance truly encapsulates them.
For Dolce&Gabbana and Issey Miyake, it's all about leaving a lasting impression on your loved one. It's not just giving them a bottle of scent. It is a celebration of your relationship—be it familial, friendship, professional. Fragrance makes the perfect gift because... What better way to make someone feel special than by sending them a signature Dolce&Gabbana or Issey Miyake fragrance that is as unique as they are?
Here are some of the people who love to put a lot of effort into making gift-giving more special and personal.
Juggling his career and passions, Hideo Muraoka is a man of many things. He is a model, a photographer, a yoga and obstacle course race (OCR) instructor, creator of The Movement Tribe and Style HM, and co-partner of Nomi Café. But above all of that, his greatest roles are being a husband to his wife Fatima Rabago and father to his daughter Daniela (Danda) and son Kenzo.
For Hideo, finding great gifts for the women in his life isn't so impossible. While it's great to surprise his loved ones with big, gift-wrapped boxes, it's even more exciting to see the reaction on their faces when they open the smaller-sized gift.
