Valentines Gift List For Her - The Fragrances

With Valentines Day arriving this week, there is still time to run out and grab that gift to surprise your better half. Today I am sharing some of the fragrances I have been absolutely loving lately and it includes one or two that have made an appearance on this blog before, but I adore them so much, it would be wrong not to include them because they are THAT GOOD!

Starting with Hugo Boss The Scent For Her which is new to my collection and one which I've worn everyday since it arrived. Described as being: A darker, more powerful version of the seductive classic, BOSS THE SCENT For Her with two exclusive raw materials, Osmanthus Absolute and Cistus Absolute which enhance the dark, captivating side of the fragrance, bringing the classic BOSS The Scent seduction to a deeper level.

Nestled inside a deep black, almost diamond shaped bottle, the perfume opens with the fruity note of Honeyed Peach which is just stunning and added with Freesia, if a fruity-floral fragrance is something you like, then this is the one you need. With middle notes of Osmanthus Absolute which is light and delicate and Cistus Absolute the scent really comes to life and with Cacoa as a base note the warmness of the fragrance is divine.  I love how much of a role the Cacoa plays within this scent because it is quite unlike anything I have ever tried.  Priced at £85 for 50ml you can find this beauty here.

I can't not include Zadig & Voltaire For Her which has featured on my blog before (here and here) and I absolutely adore it and it was without question my most worn scent of 2017. Described as being sensual, free and jauntily. The woody, floral and gourmand This is Her, signed by perfumer duo Sidonie Lancesseur and Michel Almairac, contains notes of pink pepper, Sambac jasmine, milky chestnut cream, vanilla and sandalwood. As a scent it is cosy, it is sweet, it is indulgent and most definitely unique.

I love that it smells so totally different to anything else I currently own or have tried and on the skin, it starts out being quite floral until the fragrance settles and is mixed with vanilla and sandalwood it becomes just beautiful and I cannot get enough of it. Impressively it is one of those scents which lasts all day without the need to re-apply and it can still be smelt the following day if it is applied to clothing. You can find it HERE priced between £30 and £50.

When it comes to cuteness, Ghost Sweetheart Forever is up there and again, I featured this fragrance here on my blog.  An Oriental Floral fragrance, Sweetheart Forever is described as being a "fragrance that touches the spirit of today's modern, romantic woman" and evokes the spirit, adventure and optimism of those tender sweet first days of a fledgling romance.  A sweet fragrance which has notes of Cassis, Lychee, Orange and Vanilla it is girly, it is pink and it is just lovely.

For Valentines Day this gift set couldn't be more perfectly packaged. Not only do you get a 30ml bottle of the fragrance, but with it, you also get a rose gold Lock and Key Pendant and it costs £25 here at Boots.

If ever there was a bottle to wow you, then it is Versace pour femme Dylan Blue. Nestled inside a curvy bottle which is designed to evoke a ceramic bowl of amphora shape and ancient Greek culture and mythology.  Just how stunning is this bottle?

The deep blue colour is highlighted with golden details and the iconic Medusa head as the symbol of the brand.  The scent is not something I expected to like as it is described as being a Floral-Fruity-Woody composition but with top notes of blackcurrant sorbet, Granny Smith apple, clover, forget-me-not and Shisolia which has quite an earthy scent you already get an opening of all three compositions quite quickly with the blackcurrant quickly dominating alongside the Shisolia.  Then as it begins to dry down the heart notes of Eglantine rose, Petalia, Rosyfolia, Jasmine, ice infusion of peach really come to life and again the one scent I can pick out straight away is the Jasmine alongside Peach but  then we have the base notes of patchouli coeur, styrax, white smooth woods and musk the woodiness of the scent comes into its own and you really do quite get quite a mixture of scents and aromas and actually I really liked it.  It is a strong scent, so less is more and it lasts all day without even needing to top up.  You can find this stunning bottle right here for £98.50.

Can Valentines Day ever be the same unless there is a Jo Malone box waiting for you?  Velvet Rose and Oud is the only fragrance from Jo Malone that I have ever owned and I always get so many compliments when I wear it.

The scent is described as being "Darkest Damask rose is rich and textural, wrapped with smoky oud wood. Spiked with clove, decadent with praline". I love rose scent products, there is something about that fresh scent of roses which is incredibly relaxing but is a scent which works so well with my skin that it smells amazing.  Priced at £75 got 50ml you can find this fragrance here at John Lewis.

So there you have my gift guide to Valentines Day when it comes to choosing a fragrance for the woman in your life.  I would love to know what your favourite fragrance is right now and whether or not any of these tickle your fancy!

  19. I would have such a hard time choosing from this list, they all sound amazing. I guess it would have to be a smell test for a winner. Great gift guide.
