The obligatory Christmas countdown has started, and whether you like it or hate it, we can bet you're still as excited as us about catching a chic beauty advent calendar.

Advent calendars are fun for many causes: Mainly, you get to open them up at the start of December - and hoping you don't go the instant satisfaction way and open all of the daily goodies at once-, you get to enjoy a whole month's worth of gifts on the daily. And even though they usually're an expensive item, they can actually be a great advantage if you're looking to share your gifts, or if you're looking to try a variation of goods from one brand.

Sure, advent calendars might seem like they're for youngsters, but there are lots of ones out there for grown-ups to enjoy too. Gone are the times when we'd count down to Christmas with a bar of teensy weensy chocolate that would disappear in a single bite. 

Now, everything from astonishing scented candles and wonder-serums, to luxe body oils and fragrances (that smell so nice!) are lurking behind those little paper doors. Scroll down for 5 adult advent calendars that will excite and surprise any receiver each day with all the goodies their heart craves.
