On the 26th of January it is National Couples Day, a day that encourages couples to celebrate each other. A day many couples need as it is very easy to become comfortable and complacent in this day and age. We are all guilty of when we get home from a busy day sitting sofa scanning through social media instead of being attentive to our partner. With that in mind and Valentine’s Day around the corner, we have put together a fragrance matcher for your partner.
If your man is a get up and go kind of guy, always busy doing jobs or in the pub but is very easy going then we suggest the Missoni Man Eau de Parfum Spray. This is a sensuous dry-down blend of sandalwood, birch, patchouli and musk giving an aromatic and woody scent. With the masculine bottle and magnetic lid this would make the perfect gift.
If the man in your life has a passion for sports, whether he is forever at football matches, playing at his club or in the gym, we would recommend the Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio collection. The Absolu is the perfect combination of a woody but fresh scent. The Profumo has a spicy composition, opening with fresh aquatic accord and bergamot but then captures aromatic tones and the pour homme is fresher with a richness opening with citrus top notes and base notes of amber, oakmoss, white musk and patchouli.
If your partner is well dressed often styled with your expert guidance, brand conscious and seen as a bit of a character then we recommend the Dolce and Gabbana The One collection. The Grey is the latest to join the line, this celebrates elegance and charisma, with lavandin and citrus notes of grapefruit while keeping the signature warm tobacco scent.
If you are unsure it is the perfect match and you are looking for an all rounder then the crisp, fresh BOSS Bottled is timeless and you can’t go wrong.
If your girlfriend cares about her appearance and enjoys socialising and going out, we would recommend the Armani Si collection. One of our favourites is the Passione Eau de Parfum Spray, this scent has top notes of pink pepper, blackcurrant and pear in a sophisticated bottle makes it a fabulous fragrance for a confident, daring woman.
If you want to treat your wife who is caring, hardworking and enjoys evenings watching the latest drama on a Sunday night then we recommend Lancome La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum. This bestselling floral fragrance is sweet and elegant, capturing the essence of magnolia extracts and patchouli accords. With its signature bottle ‘le sourire de cristal’ meaning the crystal smile this would be a great surprise for any special lady.
If your partner is very driven whether it is to reach her target in the gym or in her career, we would recommend the Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme. The fragrance begins from a note of blackberry with heart notes of Bulgarian rose and base notes of golden wood. With its sleek bottle and warming smell this was created for the modern women making a great gift even if you’re buying for yourself.
If you are still uncertain which would be best, then have a look at the Givenchy L’Interdit. This new launch from last year was very popular. Its orange blossom and Jasmin notes makes it an intense and addictive fragrance.
