It’s the most wonderful time of the year and we’re in full shopping mode, stocking up on presents for our nearest and dearest. But if you’re looking for a gift that will not only delight on Christmas morning, but offer lasting memories for years to come, why not opt for a unique experience for that someone special? From once-in-a-lifetime helicopter rides, to creative activities, thrilling adventures and more, here are our picks of the best experiences this city has to offer.

Perfume is always a well-received gift, but unless you know exactly which fragrance to buy, it can be a tricky process choosing the perfect scent. So, to make choosing a little less stressful, and much more fun, why not book in a perfume workshop at Intime Artisan de Parfum and create your very own unique fragrance? In the two-hour workshop you will be given perfume wearing tips and basic perfume knowledge, along with tuition on the primary techniques of perfume creation, including selection, dosage and ingredient composing, before being able to choose from over 20 ingredients in nine perfume groups to create your own bespoke French Eau de Parfum. At the end of the session you will be able to take home your creation, and the bespoke formula will be kept on file for future re-ordering.

How much: $1,368 for two (group class); $3,500 for private workshop for two
