Valentine's Day Premium Fragrance Gifts For Her
It is that time of year when feelings turn to love, passion and gifts for your sweetheart. That means, yes, it is Valentine's Day. That one day of the year when everyone wears red, we go out to fancy restaurants and we buy fabulous gifts for our significant others. All in the name of LOVE...
This year I have some wonderful gift ideas that I think you can hint about for your significant other or maybe he will see this and say, "hmm...that is a good idea for so and so". Either way, check out my list and see what you might like. Fragrances are always a great way to go for Valentine's Day.
The newest addition to the Valentina collection, Valentina Blush is an unpredictable and mischievous interpretation. Like the raw edge of fine silk, Valentina Blush subverts olfactory expectations while seducing the senses. The new scent establishes a place in the Valentina family defined not through intellect but through emotion, an intuitive new chapter in the Valentina story. Orange blossom is wrapped in indulgent notes of praline, in this unexpected vision by perfumer Alexis Dadier.
PRADA Miracle of the Rose
3.4 fl.oz. $160.00
Infusion Rose is a vital, fresh fragrance that continues the exploration of the paradox of simplicity and sophistication at the heart of all Les Infusions de Prada. Infusion Rose plays with the traditional interpretation of its core ingredient, moving away from the heavier, velvety notes usually associated with rose to create a fresh and breezy fragrance with a distinctly open-air quality. The result is a contemporary re-imagining of the traditional olfactory qualities of rose: delicately translucent, yet spicy and multifaceted, classic yet modern, at the same time tangible and abstract. INGREDIENTS: Rose Bulgare, Rose Turque, Rose Pétale infused in a perfumed water of Neroli, Mandarin and Gelbanum.
Good Girl: Carolina Herrera New York
1.7 fl.oz. $90.00
Black and white… dark and light… good girl, bad girl. Carolina Herrera introduces GOOD GIRL, a sensual, evocative fragrance born of the beautiful contradictions and the dichotomy of modern women and modern life. GOOD GIRL celebrates her spontaneity, complexity and power. She revels in her unapologetic duality – her femininity and sensuality, her timeless elegance and casual irreverence, her hopeless romance and fearless independence. If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun… it’s good to be bad. Created by perfumer Louise Turner, GOOD GIRL is made to capture a woman’s wondrous complexity with surprising ingredients. The sweet, alluring qualities of jasmine give the fragrance its brightness and femininity. The darker side of the scent is created with richly fragrant cocoa and intoxicating Tonka. Almond and coffee bring GOOD GIRL its immediate vibrancy. Tuberose, extracted in a new way that creates a rich delicacy, is what the perfumer calls the fragrance’s “wild card,” bringing “fluidity and femininity.” Key notes: Tuberose Jasmine, & Tonka Bean, Cacao
PRADA Candy Gloss
2.7 fl.oz. $96.00
Prada Candy Gloss joins the original Prada Candy, Prada Candy Florale and Prada Candy Kiss as the latest addition to the Pop-centric Prada Candy fragrance collection. The next fragrance in Prada’s olfactory epitome of the spirit of Nouvelle Vague expresses the most excessive side of Candy. Multi-layered, insatiable, flirtatious, Prada Candy Gloss is an expression of Prada Parfum’s obsessive search for refined indulgence. Prada Candy Gloss is an Eau de Toilette built around a gourmande core of Almond, redolent with velvety Vanilla notes, infused with tender, sensual Musk. This accord is wrapped in a bright Cherry top note, shiny and feminine, which is uplifted and lightened by Orange Blossom at the heart of the fragrance. Available at Sephora.
Valentino Donna Acqua
2.7 fl.oz. $120.00
Valentino Parfums introduces two new fragrances: Valentino Uomo Acqua and Valentino Donna Acqua. One does not define the other, but together they represent an iconic and fearless new hierarchy of desire, charged with raw authenticity and a nonchalant attitude. An irreverent clash of lightness and indulgence composed by Sonia Constant, Valentino Donna Acqua is a collision between tender green almond and frosted pear. The warmth of a frangipani rose accord meets a suggestion of sandalwood and hawthorn. Valentino Donna Acqua is presented in the iconic studded glass bottle, signifiers of defiant grace, while the outer packaging is resonant with that of the classic Valentino Donna fragrance. Valentino Donna Acqua is housed in a rose-pink box, creating a new expression of beauty in perfumery, the dissonant harmony of modern desire.
Jean Paul Gaultier Essence de Parfum
3.4 fl.oz. $115.00Jean Paul Gaultier's tribute to women and corset is reimagined with the essence de parfum. He introduces a new eau de parfum concentration of his iconic fragrance classic, establishing a "haute parfumerie" version with a unique touch of complexity. Created by perfumer Daphne Bugey, Essence de Parfum reworks the story of Classique at the top. The fresh, spicy note of ginger is combines with the irresistible sweetness of orange blossom. The feminine heart of sambac jasmine sits on a warm, sultry base of precious woods, vanilla and chantilly cream. For the first time ever Gaultier introduces a modified version of the iconic bottle the curves have been sharpened to give a crystal perception and convey the bust in a more sculptural way. The cap is redressed in copper to match the signature metal can for a modern and sophisticated touch.
These fragrances are available at fine retailers online and in department stores such as Macy's, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom's, Dillards, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, ULTA and Sephora. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day. Be sure to tell your sweetie what you would like. Believe me, often he is clueless unless you give him a hint!
