Everyone likes finding a new perfume under the tree come December 25th but while some fragrances reveal just how much your other half loves you, others could be a sign that things are going awry.
New research has found that the perfume a man chooses for his partner offers an indication of how serious he feels the relationship is.
And it's bad news for fans of celebrity fragrance - men who slip perfumes by Beyonce, One Direction or Britney into their partner's stockings see the liaison as nothing more than a casual fling.
But if you get a romantic choice such as Beautiful by Estee Lauder, Romance by Ralph Lauren or J'Adore by Christian Dior, it means he sees you as a keeper.
Interestingly, the results were mirrored by the feelings of the recipients, with women gifted a celebrity fragrance saying the present lacked the personal touch, while more than half of those who received a romantic choice felt a romantic sounding fragrance was a sure sign they were meant to be.
But romantic choices aren't the only perfume used to make potential partners happy. Women in new relationships tend to receive daring designer choices, as men make a bid to impress with their perfume know-how.
Typical gifts doled out by men with new loves include Flora by Gucci, Candy by Prada, Daisy by Marc Jacobs and Just Cavalli by Roberto Cavalli.
