There’s a simple sentiment behind The Raconteur: what you choose to purchase says a lot about you. The bespoke fragrance brand is inspired by unique Australian botanicals and their native locations. It began with an offering of soy wax candles, with scents drawing on flora in Bondi and Melbourne. Expanding its gift-ready range, the brand recently unveiled its first unisex fragrance, Raconteur X. An ideal gift, its aroma pays homage to summer love in Sydney. Expect lush green and citrus notes of fig leaf, galbanum and Australian lemon, with spicy undertones of Tasmanian blackcurrant bud. Only 100 bottles have been produced, each date-marked and hand-numbered.

When sleep comes your way, just flip your Molli to the flat side and enjoy the Zs. A perfect gift for the friend who enjoys both travel and napping, Molli comes delivered in a premium matte black gift box, so there’s no need to get out the Christmas wrap. MOLLIVOYAGE.COM
