Valentine's Gift Guide: Five Favorite Fragrances

Smell is one of the strongest senses a person has. There's something pleasing that happens to the body when you smell something you like. With perfumes, it can be romantic, fresh, out of the ordinary, and a sense of home. Over the past six months or so, I've collected quite a bit of fragrances, and today I'm sharing with you my top five favorites that would be perfect Valentines presents to yourself or a special someone!


Le Labo has been blowing up over the past year, and it's one of my favorite fragrance companies. They hand craft all of their fragrances when ordered, and they are all unique and full-bodied scents. Their branding is also beautiful, which makes it even more appealing. Santal 33 is full of feminine touches as well as masculine, making it an easy unisex scent. The aroma is full of Australian Sandalwood, cedar wood, cardamon, iris, violet, ambrox and leather accord. I know so many males and females that wear this scent, and it works on anyone. It's perfect for everyday or evening.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb is a classic, floral, elegant and sweet scent making it the perfect fragrance to wear on Valentine's Day. The scent is perfect for everyday or evening, and would make a great gift for her. It's ultra-feminie, sensual, and addictive scent is not too overpowering. The explosion of floral changes your mood from negative to positive. I've been wearing this fragrance for almost a year now, and it's been my daily go-to!


Diptyque L'Ombre dans L'Eau Eau de Parfum is a fresh scent, that smells like a stroll through a garden that continues into a rose garden. It's the perfect scent for a hint of sweet florals mixed with herbal and fresh aromas. This is perfect for everyday as well, and isn't too overpowering. I got this travel size gifted to me, but I'm wanting to invest in the larger one! If you love diptyque candals, you'll love their fragrances just as much.  


Aveda makes some of my favorite beauty and hair care products, and they also have some amazing body mists! This Chakra 6 body mist is balanced with certified organic petitgrain, orange, geranium and other pure flower and plant essences. It's fresh, and perfect to spray on your body after a shower or hot bath. Because of the essential oils, it makes it a stronger scent, so a little goes on a long way. This fragrance also can be used to help enhance yoga or meditation. This would be a good gift for someone who's a yogi! 


Last but not least is one of my top favorite fragrances of all time... CHANEL CHANCE. Chanel's perfume's are timeless, elegant, and classic just like everything else in the collection. The fragrance is all about daring to dream, and taking a chance for romance. So, what a perfect gift for Valentines! The notes include citrus accord, hyacinth, iris, jasmine, pink pepper, patchouli, vetiver, amber, white musk, vanilla. The sweeter scent goes a long way, and is a daily fragrance. I always wear it to any special event or an evening out.

Valentines Day is right around the corner, and fragrances are always a good gift for someone. Make sure to check out the perfumes in the shop section! What are some of your favorite fragrances?
