Which scent particularly reminds you of Christmas?

Most Popular

'The smell of cinnamon and vanilla always reminds me of Christmas,' says Scarlett. 'My family always makes a Danish rice pudding with almonds and a cherry sauce for the holidays and it is only made once a year. The scent of it cooking fills the whole house'.

What is the most memorable Christmas gift you’ve ever received?

'The most memorable Christmas present I ever received was when I was eight. I really wanted a pet lizard for Christmas and my parents said 'no'. When Christmas eve came around, my mom and dad lead me into their bedroom and all the lights were off except a glowing terrarium with my new lizard inside. I was so excited!'

What’s at the top of your Christmas list this year?

'I always ask my friends and family to buy a gift from Oxfam Unwrapped. Purchasing an alpaca or a goat or a farm essentials kit for families in need are totally unique gifts that reminds us that giving is receiving.'

What is your tip for creating a striking New Year’s Eve look?

'I love to make my eyes really pop for New Year's. It's a sexy, festive look to ring in the New Year. The new Dolce&Gabbana Glam Liner, £24.50 (at Harrods) is easy to apply and you can make the line as defined as you want without making a big mess!'

What’s the one beauty item you couldn’t live without over the festive season?

'When I know I'm going to be attending holiday parties and gatherings I like to wear a really elegant but provocative scent – I love The One which is floral, fruity and really classic.

I also want my skin to look it's absolute best. I use a concealer to correct my skin, then add a few pumps of Dolce&Gabbana Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation, £35.50 (at Harrods) to my moisturiser. Afterwards, I spray with a rosewater toner to finish'.

ELLE loves Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist, £16.50.
