With Christmas only weeks away, now’s the time to start working through your list to ensure that deliveries are made before the big day arrives. “The perfect gift acknowledges the tastes and interests of your recipient,” notes Lumira founder and creative director Almira Armstrong. “For example, if you’re selecting for someone who loves to travel, a scent that’s inspired by their favourite destination will always be a welcome memento.”
Here, Armstrong shares her top gift ideas, no matter who you’re buying for.
“These little luxuries will light up her Christmas morning.”
A collaboration with the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney, our newest scent is a lush blend of white blossoms and earthy notes. Proceeds are donated to the Garden’s conservation and research work.
