Single or taken, Valentine’s Day is one of those social events that you simply can’t avoid! I’m not one for the over the top dramatic show of romance but if my partner wants to spoil me on the most romantic day of the year, who am I to say no, right?
Valentine’s Day shouldn’t just be about treating others but it should also be about treating yourself! So whether you’re buying for a boyfriend, girlfriend, family member or friend, remember to indulge yourself too because let’s face it, you’re pretty fabulous!
So without further ado, I’ve put together a short list of my best ‘picks’ for Valentine’s Day, including some new, exciting fragrance releases!
Nina Ricci’s new release is called La Tentation de Nina. Before you even think about spritzing this scent, it’s hard not to notice the incredibly girly packaging. A bright pink apple with gold plated detailing? Yes please! This is a really sweet fragrance which contains notes of Raspberry and Almond so I would definitely recommend this perfume for the ultimate girly girl on Valentine’s Day.
If there’s one fragrance I’ll be buying my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day then it’s got to be Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier. This is quite an unusual scent that contains notes of Vanilla, Lavender and Mint which when put together, smell pretty perfect! Although JPG hasn’t been on site for long, Le Male is already one of our best selling fragrances for men and I think this is a great scent for men of all ages!
When it comes to Marc Jacobs fragrances, you can never steer too far off the beaten track. Honey may have stolen the spotlight for most of 2013, but I’m showing some love for Marc Jacobs Lola. This is described as Daisy’s older sister, mainly because it’s much more of a warmer scent, with notes of Pear, Rose and Vanilla. I think this is a perfect scent for any age, especially if they’re a Marc Jacobs fan AND did I mention that the bottle design doubles up as a fragrance and a bouquet of flowers?! Double whammy.
This is Paco Rabanne’s newest fragrance which just landed on site this week! This is Paco Rabanne’s new take on the popular XS fragrance. This is a limited edition scent so it will feel like an extra special gift if you’re thinking of purchasing it for Valentine’s Day. It has quite an unusual composition with notes of Juniper Berry, Absinth and Cashmere Wood but I promise it smells uh-maz-ing! I would recommend this scent for the younger men in your life as it’s quite sweet and steers away from the conventional men’s fragrance route.
