Happy Black Friday to you! I was reading in USA Today-that this year, the 2011 trend is less big ticket items and more comfort items that provide immediate gratification such as perfumes and wine.

Well sign me up for both of those gifts! I love fragrance and I think it makes a perfect gift. Even if you don't know the person's favorite fragrance-giving them something new and intriguing can say more about the giver than the gift!
This wee red leather wrapped bottle is the newwest fragrance from designer Carolina Herrera. I think it smells of fairytales-but you be the judge! Get your bum down to Nordstroms or Saks and have a sniff!

ABOUT: festive yet chic, CH combines notes of Sicilian lemon, Italian bergamot, sandalwood, suede and amber for a sumptuous scent. The beautiful bottle is also encased in an embossed leather case with CH logo charm. This is a gift meant to be displayed!
PRICE: $90 for 3.4 fl oz. ($70 for 1.7 fl oz.)
