How to Choose a "Scent-sational" Fragrance for Valentines Day

If you're anything like me you love to celebrate Valentines Day, by both, giving and receiving gifts. I have put together for you a fail proof way to pick the perfect Fragrance for your Valentine. First lets talk about the categories that most fragrances fall into.

Now that you have an understanding of the personalities and fragrances that go hand in hand the only thing left to do is choose your fragrance. I'm going to share some suggestions with you and this list is in no way exhaustive, but, is intended to get you off to a great start in your fragrance hunt. Keep in mind that this list represents my favorites and top picks.

My Number One pick of course has to be Chanel, because I am a Chanel girl at heart, and once I describe the beautiful marriage of the scents it took to create both Mademoiselle and Chance, you'll fall in love as well.

  1. Chance--French for Luck was created in 2003, it embodies sensual spiciness and extreme freshness with floral undertones. You can't go wrong with this fragrance it's certainly worth more than a chance, so go ahead and make it a choice.    Mademoiselle --- Created just two years earlier in 2001 for the young, but daring, the top notes in this fragrance are very refreshing: Orange, Bergamot, Mandarin, Tunisian & curacao, the middle notes include: Italian Jasmine, Ylang Ylang & Mimosa, the list goes on, but, the combination of these scents alone is enough to make you fall head over heels for this fragrance.
  2. Viktor & Rolf  Flowerbomb is a floral explosion that has the power to make everything more positive. So, if you're trying to get your date kicked off on a positive note this should be your fragrance of choice.
  3. Valentina Eau De Parfum -- they say is inspired the the Italian IT girl. Valentina embodies a rebellious italian heiress.The exuberant freshness of  bergamot.  The iconic beauty of a white floral bouquet and the captivating sensuality of Amber makes this a winning combination.
  4. Miss Dior -- The name itself speaks of Parisian Charm and Elegance. Fresh chypre with bright bergamot and gardenia notes underscored by the elegance of Indonesian Patchouli, lends itself naturally to elegance.
  5. Jimmy Choo--No not the shoes. Imagine would you for just a second femininity, luxury and style, all wrapped in one and then bottled. That's exactly what Jimmy Choo, the fragrance is.
  6. Prada Candy -- One word- WOW!! If sweetness is what you're looking for that's exactly what you'll  get with  noble benzoin magnified by white musks, that comes together with a modern caramel accord to give the fragrance a truly unique signature, where more is more....
  7. DOT by Marc Jacobs ---Last but, by no means least this fragrance is captured in a stylish bottle  that's happy and upbeat, the oversized, butterfly-inspired cap flaunts a chic play of proportions, while the collar is wrapped with gold coil for a touch of luxe detail. And inside is the wonderful mix of
    Red Berries, Dragonfruit, Honeysuckle, Jasmine, Coconut Water, Orange Blossom, Vanilla, Driftwood, Musk. If happy and energetic is the tone you want to set, this is the fragrance you want.
