Endless parties, late-night cramming sessions and packet noodles may be the stereotypical university experience, but we all know that students have had a rough time over the last few years. The abrupt shift to distance learning brought with it a fair share of ups and downs, but the Class of ‘22 took it all in their stride and are set to graduate in a few short weeks. 

Whether you’re celebrating the graduation of yourself or someone you love, make sure to do it right. Take a look at this collection of stand-out gifts to say an epic well done to someone who thoroughly deserves it. 

Graduation Gifts For Her

Whether she’s heading into her first full-time role or is taking a break to enjoy summer and make memories with her friends, fragrance makes the perfect graduation gift. Light and feminine, bold and fearless, or a combination of the two, it’s all about finding the right scent to suit her personality. Browse a few of the best-sellers she’s sure to love. 

Marc Jacobs Daisy

The first in the exceedingly popular line of Daisy fragrances, Marc Jacobs Daisy is a quintessentially bright and youthful perfume. With a clean cotton scent that boasts a touch of strawberry and hint of vanilla, it’s an easy-to-wear fragrance that can be worn to interviews or brunch with friends. 

And, in a huge 200ml size, this show-stopping bottle makes clear that this is no everyday gift. 

YSL Black Opium 

A timeless classic, YSL Opium has been a sultry signature scent since the seventies. Today the more modern, Black Opium, entices the senses and has something for everyone, with new flankers being released annually. 

Treat her to the newest edition, Black Opium Illicit Green or a large 150ml size bottle of the original Black Opium.  

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle

A classic scent that perfectly embodies the elegance of womanhood, Lancôme La Vie Est Belle is a symbolic fragrance to mark the transition from studenthood. With an ethos of enjoying the little things in life, this perfume draws its name from the French motto, “Life is Beautiful”.

Equal parts delicate floral and juicy gourmand, she’ll reach for this versatile fragrance for both work and pleasure.  

Graduation Gifts For Him

Notoriously difficult to buy for, young men can often be missed when it comes to gift-giving. But, with this lineup of signature scents, finding the perfect present has never been easier. Browse our top picks and choose something that he’ll appreciate in the next phase of his life.

Viktor&Rolf Spicebomb

A luxurious fragrance that is renowned for its spicy masculine scent, Viktor&Rolf Spicebomb makes a great gift for a man coming up in the world. Fiery paprika, pepper and cinnamon give this fragrance its spicy kick, while more traditional notes of leather, vetiver and bergamot ground place it firmly in the high-end fragrance category. 

A classic that he’ll thank you for in years to come. 

BOSS Bottled Eau de Parfum

One of the newest men’s fragrances from HUGO BOSS, BOSS Bottled Eau de Parfum is a versatile scent he can wear to the office with confidence. With bright notes including apple, cardamom, chestnut and musk, this is light parfum that will be universally appreciated by men and women alike. 

Ralph’s Club

Smart, suave and fresh, Ralph’s Club is a deceptively simple aromatic fragrance that uses its four signature notes to great effect. Lavender and clary sage offer a subtle combination of herbal and floral aromas, which, when paired with vetiver and cedar create a crisp, clean scent.  

Available in both 50ml and 100ml sizes. 

Celebrate the Class of ‘22 in style, with thoughtful fragrances for every taste.
