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.

Giorgio Armani Si Passione EDP

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.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb EDP

When working on the Flowerbomb fragrance, Viktor & Rolf wanted to create something new. They dreamt of a fragrance that had the power to spread a positive message. A profusion of flowers as a weapon to spread the world with beauty and fantasy and to transform the negative into positive.

Beyoncé Heat Kissed EDP

The lush composition of Beyoncé Heat Kissed begins with exotic fruity notes of lychee, mango and pitahaya. Its rich heart includes Red Fury Orchid, Sambac Jasmine and Moroccan Rose Oil. Exotic woody notes of African sandalwood and patchouli are combined with vanilla infusion to create a warm and inviting base.


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.

Actually, forget it. Chocolate is too good to skip so pick up a pack of Lindor balls alongside one of the below.

Lancôme La vie est belle EDP

“La vie est belle”, a French expression meaning “life is beautiful”; the manifesto of a new era. Lancôme’s femininity is a choice embraced by women, not an imposed standard. The choice to live one’s life and fill it with beauty your own way. La vie est belle introduces a new olfactive story, the first ever iris gourmand. The juice is made with the most precious natural ingredients, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a twist of gourmand.

Lancôme La Nuit Trésor EDP

Discover La Nuit Trésor, a sultry, smouldering perfume for women with notes of fresh raspberry, frankincense and vanilla with a bewitching heart of Black Rose essence. This rich and exquisite women’s perfume was crafted by two master perfumers who combined their craftsmanship to create La Nuit Trésor EDP. Beginning with a burst of delicious raspberry, the notes of a Damascena rose have been enhanced to give the fragrance a deep and mysterious scent.


A classic affirming candy heart is adorable, but it’s time to walk the talk and put those “ur cute” notions to practice. Display how you really feel about your love with these candy-scented favourites.

Viktor & Rolf Bonbon EDP

Bonbon is a timeless sensation inviting a pure and absolute pursuit of pleasure. This self-indulgent moment belongs exclusively to her. She is empowered, beautiful and complete.

Rihanna Rebelle EDP 

Rebelle is for women who appreciate warm, spicy accords of cacao and coffee alongside fruity, sweet notes. Its initial notes feature a blend of orchid along with notes of plum and strawberry infused with ginger for a fresh, invigorating scent with a bit of spice. Heart notes of cacao and vanilla infused with almond lead into the rich final notes of musk, patchouli, amber and coffee for a warming fragrance to wear on cool evenings.

Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend EDP

Justin Bieber Design House launched Girlfriend as a sweet fruity fragrance for women.
