Top 5 Valentine’s Day Perfumes
Princess by Vera Wang
A perfume with a bottle design that says it all. Princess by Vera Wang is a gourmand perfume that changed the landscape of modern gourmand perfumes. The usage of dark chocolate, vanilla, and guava are what makes this perfume so special. It’s sweet, light, and inoffensive, making it a choice for just about anybody looking to add a little sweetness to their collection.
This perfume is the go-to scent for women all over the world. It’s inexpensive, yet has a depth that you won’t find in a gourmand perfume at this price. It has just the right amount of complexity, to keep it engaging and interesting.
The performance of this perfume is in the middle. This allows you to wear it in any situation without fear of being overpowering and cloying to the people around you. The longevity will last you around 6 to 8 hours and is easy to respray if you want to make it last into the night.
In Love Again by Yves Saint Laurent
A feel-good perfume that will bring you back to that feeling of falling in love again. It opens up with an intense note of sweet grapefruit, then followed by a medley of berries. It is a wonderful fragrance to wear during the summertime. A light, refreshing, fragrance that will never get old. It settles down with a sandalwood note that gives it a little more depth than just a fruit perfume.
The best formula of this perfume is the original from 1998, the current formula is a little watered down. It is still an amazing fragrance that just makes you feel happy, each time you smell it. I know people who have been wearing this perfume since it first came out in 1998. 20+ years of wearing a fragrance must mean they did something right.
The performance is typical for what you get in a light summertime perfume. It will never blow people away with the projection making it nauseating and irritating to be around. The longevity will average anywhere between 6 to 8 hours. It will be less if you are going to be outside for most of the day.
Roses de Chloe by Chloe
Do you or your significant other love the smell of a rose? A sophisticated rose scent that smells as if it was picked straight from a rose bush on a rainy summer day. A hint of musk to it that balances it out perfectly. Chloé’s Roses De Chloé has been described as the perfect rose perfume and is considered the gold standard for rose perfumes by the fragrance community. It also does not have the typical “older person” smell that is usually associated with rose-based perfumes.
It is a light and fresh perfume that is perfect for any age range. The performance is one of the lightest that have been released by Chloé, but I can’t complain. It is a perfect day time perfume that lasts around 6 hours before dying down and becoming sweet and soft. This one is my favorite to come from Chloé. This is a perfect Valentine’s Day perfume gift.
Crystal Noir by Versace
This is yet another top Versace perfume that delivers amazing results for an inexpensive price. This is a luxurious fragrance that is mass-appealing and refreshing to smell. The perfume comes in a sophisticated bottle that will be a mysterious and appealing addition to your collection. The lid of this perfume looks like a rare gem, adding to the overall beauty of this perfume.
When you spray it, it will start with top notes of pepper, nutmeg, and ginger, which are then balanced with middle notes of peony, coconut, and African orange. The base notes of amber, sandalwood, and musk blend together for a beautiful sweet smell.
Are you or your significant other looking for a perfume that delivers a refreshing and long-lasting feminine fragrance? Crystal Noir is your perfect choice for a Valentine’s Day perfume gift. You can wear it to any occasion and any season.
Hypnotic Poison by Christian Dior
An old classic seductive perfume that is very well-balanced, not overpowering, and is constantly grabbing compliments. Released in 1998, Annick Menardo crafted this perfume with fresh and vibrant smelling vanilla, sweet toasted almond, and coconut. Hypnotic Poison is recommended to be used during nightlife. Wearing this during the day would feel out-of-place, but I think the right person could pull it off.
The performance on this classic was nothing short of amazing, it lasted 20+ hours,even after taking a shower. The projection is heavy and you need to find the right balance to keep from being too over the top. If you are looking for a new perfume to use while out with your friends or looking for a seductive perfume to give your partner, Hypnotic Poison is for you.
