‘Tis the season for gifting and while giving someone a fab fragrance is always an amazing idea, figuring out which one can be tough. That’s why I’m very thankful to some of our favorite Real Housewives for sharing their favorites. Whether we’ve spotted them on someone’s vanity or they’ve taken the guesswork out of it by sharing their faves on social media, we’ve got details on 12 different scents they use, all available from Nordstom Beauty.

While you can make things extra personal and give someone the scent of their favorite Housewife, you can also just take these ladies love for them as a testament to it being fabulous for the non Housewives fan. This information is an amazing guide to elevating your giving game, even if you’re just treating yourself. An added bonus? I’ve even got the scoop on what Andy Cohen uses for any hard to shop for men in your life.

While perfumes can be pricey, I also sourced other products with the same scent that are available at Nordstrom. So if you don’t want to spend on the actual perfume, you can scoop up a candle or lotion with the same fragrance to gift! Giving someone the gift of a great fragrance can totally change their whole mood when they put it on, especially when people start to say “What are you wearing?!”

And as always, don’t forget to check out our best sellers along with some other fun gift ideas at the end of this post. Happy Holidays, and congrats to you for getting ahead of the shopping game.
