Green Gifts under $100: Luscious organic perfume

chartreuse chic

I'll admit it -- I love perfume so much, I'll probably be changing my smell every few months for the rest of my life. Now, I know there are people in the world who are given a scent at 16 and wear it to their grave. But if you know someone who steadfastly eschews a signature scent, there's nothing better for the holidays than introducing them to a totally unique smell they've never tried.

Tsi-La starts with a certified organic alcohol base, then adds all-natural essential oils and plant botanicals to make their lovely and unusual scents. I think the "Saqui" perfume sounds ideal for winter -- it's a combo of Christmas-y spices rounded out with sultry vanilla orchid and topped off with bright citrus notes. I'd wear this one to a dark jazz club, and let everyone guess what, exactly, I might smell of.

Tsi-La Saqui Natural Eau De Parfum $85. Perfect for that girl-about-town who likes to keep things unexpected.
GOOD B/C: Organic.
