Here are 11 new perfumes we think she'll love!
Perfume is a fail-safe gift option for all the women on your list this holiday season. It's personal, it's luxurious—and she might not think to buy it for herself. To help you out a bit, here are a 10 new perfumes that we think she'll love.
This unisex fragrance blends berries, moss, sap, fir balsam, incense, patchouli and cedarwood for an outdoorsy scent that is the perfect gift for an adventurer.
The legendary Chanel No. 5 gets a fresh update with this L'eau version—a lighter and more modern take that we're sure will become an instant classic.
This exclusive-to-Canada scent from Atelier Cologne has a touch of maple enveloped in a warm and sunny scent—the perfect antidote to the winter blues.
There's nothing sharp about this rose scent. But the classic flower gets a modern spin when paired with fresh, green vetiver.
Calvin Klein's Deep Euphoria is rich and sexy. Notes of white pepper, rose, jasmine, musk and patchouli mingle for the perfect date-night scent.
If your gal (and your wallet) and looking for something a little more relaxed, try this single-note scent from Demeter. It mimics the smell of a fresh bouquet of wildflowers to perfection.
Volet and rose combine with fruity notes and musk for a feminine perfume that will delight any flower lover.
Guerlain's iconic La Petite Robe Noire gets a gourmand update with notes of candyfloss, vanilla and rose—yummy!
Sharp, floral neroli mixes well with aromatic basil for a scent that you just might want to steal from your missus.
White flowers and vanilla are a great match for a flirty fragrance. The holiday season could use a little more affection, no?
This light and fresh scent comes with a side of sultry—notes of mandarin and woods that mingle with flowers see to that.

What to see, do and eat in St. Andrews and the surrounding area.
1. Off Kilter Bike Tour. Take in breathtaking ocean views, learn the town's history and get some exercise as you bike to local attractions–all while wearing a custom cycling kilt. Owner Kurt Gumushel's father, a tailor, moved to St. Andrews from Turkey in the 1960s and became known for the beautiful kilts he made. He started a new trend when he made kilts for local mountain bikers a few years ago–something tourists can experience during one of Kurt's bike tours.
2. Sunbury Shores Art and Nature Centre. Art and nature are two important themes in St. Andrews and they come together in this renovated workshop/exhibition space, featuring galleries, studios for painting, printmaking, jewellery making and gorgeous view of the Bay of Fundy. Sign up for a workshop or simply tour The Water Street Gallery, which features rotating exhibitions from local artists.
3. Symbiosis Fine Art. Artist and entrepreneur Matt Watkins opened his gallery/shop four years ago and features pottery, painting, jewellery and photography created by himself and other local artists. Watkins specializes in custom jewellery (most of the jewellery in the shop is made in-house), painting, silversmithing and sculpture. (He also teaches workshops in these areas at Sunbury Shores.) Symbiosis is just one of the many beautiful boutiques along the main strip that features one-of-a-kind artwork, jewellery, gifts and more.
4. Oven Head Salmon Smokers. Debra and Joseph Thorne have owned and operated their smoked salmon business for 29 years. Specializing in smoked salmon, smoked salmon pate and smoked salmon jerky, they supply their cold-smoked salmon products to Sobeys, catering companies and local restaurants, including The Algonquin Resort. And they ship anywhere in Canada and the U.S., so if you can't make it to their shop (or if you love what you tried there), you can get it delivered straight to your front door.
5. Ossie’s Lunch. Established in 1957, this retro roadside stop offers an extensive menu featuring all the local delicacies, including fried oyster sandwiches, clams and chips and lobster rolls. Can’t choose just one? Go for the seafood platter and taste a little bit of everything.
6. New River Beach. Dip your toes in the Bay of Fundy with a stop at the scenic New River Beach Provincial Park. Boasting sandy beaches, cliffside hiking trails and tidal pools, this is a must if you're traveling during the spring or summer.

White, green, red, savoy – there are a lot of varieties of cabbage, and even more health benefits
Cabbage usually isn’t the first item on your grocery list, but it should be. The nutritional rewards and health benefits of this leafy green will make that cooked cabbage smell worth it, we promise.
Rich in vitamin C
While citrus fruits get all the credit for providing vitamin C, cabbage is just as great a source for this powerful nutrient. In a recent study, patients with a diet with high levels of vitamin C have a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Additionally, vitamin C is currently being studied for its affects on cataract prevention and lowering high blood pressure. All of which to say is, you don’t need to be eating oranges to get these benefits.
It’s good for your bone health
Vitamin K is important for building and maintaining bone density, and cabbage is chock-full of it. However, it's important not to take supplements or eat foods rich in vitamin K if you're taking blood thinners, some antibiotics or anticonvulsants, since it also helps with blood clotting and can interfere with these medications.
Cut your calories with Cabbage
Cabbage is an excellent source of dietary fiber, which helps you feel full for longer because it takes more time to digest. As well, cabbage is extremely low in calories—one cup of cooked shredded cabbage has only 34 calories!
If you're still unsure about slaws and sauerkraut, here are five delicious recipes that will definitely help you embrace this cruciferous veggie.
