Marche de Noel Makeup Collection by Paul & Joe Beaute: Best Irresistible Beauty Holiday Gift Ideas 2016

You’ll definitely want to keep these.

Halloween is over which means Christmas is officially here! Just kidding…we technically still have Thanksgiving to think about, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start researching holiday presents for our family, friends and loved ones. Being the beauty lovers that we are, we got down to business and combed through hundreds of products and sets on all of our favorite sites. In the process, we realized that while it is important to give to others, it’s also important to #treatyoself as well. And sometimes, when you see a particularly amazing product, you just won't be able to let go. With that in mind, here are lots of awesome beauty gifts that we might just keep for ourselves. Better yet, buy one for your BFF, and grab another for you!

Graine de Joie Eau de Parfum by Eau d'Italie: Perfume Review: Graine de Joie by Eau d'Italie 

Notes:  Pomegranate, Red Fruits, Freesia, Praline, Cedarwood, Musk

What a suprise--Graine de Joie is incredibly pretty. A fruity-floral that is beautifully done. It's interesting how the tangy pomegranate seamlessly segues into a very realistic, fresh bouquet of freesia. Freesia is a note that rarely rings true to the flower, but this is about as realalistic of a freesia as I have ever smelled.

Graine de Joie smells like the most amazing shampoo at first. Clean, fresh, bright, just a tad fruity--but not chemical.

As soon as you see "praline" in the notes, you might expect it to go into gourmand territory. But is is never truly gourmand at any point. For the first few hours, you know the praline is there, but it's subtle. It anchors the fragrance and provides some substance, some heft, to it. Praline also prevents the notes from becoming too screechy and sour. The interplay between all of the notes is quite a beautiful balancing act.

At times, it conjures the holidays because the tangy pomegranate could pass for cranberry. Mixed with praline, it reminds me of a warm and cozy holiday party, like when you walk into a home, and the oven has been on for hours, and there is a sweet scent in the air (pies, sweet potatoes...)

Several hours into wear is when the fruit and florals fade significantly. What remains on my skin smells like fruity chocolate, as though I took a red currant truffle and rubbed it into my wrist. At that point it's almost gone from my skin and time to reapply, so if gourmands aren't "your thing," you need not worry as Graine de Joie remains firmly in the fruity-floral category, and it's truly one of the nicest in that genre.

Isn't that a gorgeous bottle?
You can purchase a full bottle (100 ml) for $160 from Beautyhabit
