Valentine’s Day love, say it with…

Unsure of what to get your love this Valentine’s Day? We all know about those traditional gifts common in American movies, but let’s change it up this year! Get into the spirit with these love-themed options.


Nothing is more traditional than a gorgeous bouquet of roses on Valentine’s Day. They’re the perfect way to express your Valentine’s love. However the price of a florist’s delivery these days combined with their disappointingly short lifespan makes us think there is a better way to utilise the rosy-romance. Here are the perfumes that will exude love with their classical rose notes.

This sparkling, fruity floral scent with notes of rose and woody vanilla was created for the woman who is passionate, feminine and free. The striking red colour of the bottle captures the essence of passion.

Giorgio Armani Si EDP

At once chic, voluptuous, intense, and soft, Si eau de parfum lingers on the skin and enchants the senses. The distinguished and elegant fragrance allows women to express their every emotion.

Lancôme La vie est belle En Rose EDT

This new eau de toilette is composed of a floral heart or iris infused with peony and roses, and enlightened by a fruity smile. “La vie en rose” is a French expression that translates to life seen through pink tinted glasses. La vie est belle en Rose paints your world in pink hues, inviting you to always see the brighter side of life, its pink side, cultivating happiness. This colourful fragrance spreads optimism with every spritz, allowing those it reaches to experience “la vie en rose” it all its fullness.


We can’t lie, everyone loves chocolate… but, summer is still here and we’re not quite ready to give up on our New Year’s resolutions just yet. Say no to the sugar and embrace the sweetness through these top scents – perfect for a gal with a sweet tooth.
