The key to last minute Valentines Gift Ideas!

Valentines Day, the day where love and feelings are celebrated between couples. I use to be a huge romantic, I’m one of those people that always want to do my best to make sure others feel amazing, so in the past I’d always get really into it, but after going through a recent break up, I’ve learnt that self love is just as important. So if your a single lady don’t forget to treat yourself because WHY NOT?

Let’s be honest, one thing you can never go wrong with is a little something something to delight your senses. So I thought I would share with you a couple of fragrances I love that make the perfect gift to a loved one or a simple to me -from me. These ones in particular are all rose based, so it’s kind of fitting that they’re the perfect option for Valentines Day.

These are all readily available at a Department store or pharmacy near you, but be quick it’s almost the big day!


YSL Parisienne

A sensuous bouquet to the women whose heart belongs to Paris…even if home is elsewhere. A voluptuous floral accord of violet, damask rose and tart blackberry seems to tell the whole story. But then comes the fullness of sandalwood, deepened by musk and brightened by peonies, tying the endnotes to the ones beginning.

50ml: $138.00


Giorgio Armani Si EDT

Si has a middle note of Turkish Rose Essence. And is part of the CHYPRE Floral olfactory family. Si has got to be Armani’s best fragrance out of all their Women’s fragrances. I am yet to meet anyone who doesn’t love this, you can even get a matching body lotion for those day where you prefer something a little more subtle.

100ml RRP: $175.00


V&R Flowerbomb (My personal fave)

Flowerbomb has a middle note of Rose, described as a floriental fragrance. This fragrance is so so stunning, on me this is a little heavier than most fragrances I wear but it’s staying power is incredible!

50ml: $179.00
