Making Scents for Valentine’s Day . . .

Roses are red, violets are blue, and with Valentine’s Day around the corner, ladies I have the perfect fragrances for you!  Oh and for him too.

Carbon Aimez-Moi EDT

As a child I loved violet candies.  Among my favorites were Choward’s Violet and Les Anis de Flavigny Violette. When I opened the package, an amazing scent of violets was unleashed like perfume; and I love the memory of how they made me feel every time I took them out.

You can imagine my joy when I got my hands on a bottle of the very sophisticated scent, Caron Paris Aimez-Moi (“love me”) fragrance.  Voila, the fragrance I’ve been looking for (and I didn’t even know it)!  A flawless blend of floral and woody notes –violet, bergamot, and anise, with hints of amber and wood, combine a perfect balance and synergy to create this very seductive fragrance without being too sweet.  Light and airy, this fragrance can easily be worn from day to night. J’taime!

L’Occitaine Rose de Mai

Rose Nuit de Mai (“Night Roses of May”) Roll-on Eau de Toilette by L’Occitane is a lovely fragrance for those of you who swoon over the scent of rose.  This one is like putting your nose in a bed of fresh roses.  There’s even a slight hint of a woody essence, thanks to notes of sandalwood and cedar that compliments the rose fabulously.

This scent creates a very sensual, natural fragrance that I could sniff all day.  And the packaging is tres chic!  The roll on makes for easy application on pulse points (chest, neck, and wrists), and it’s also very portable, fitting perfectly in most purses and makeup bags.  Looks like everything’s coming up roses!

Sephora Deluxe Fragrance Sampler for Him

Choosing the perfect scent for your mate can be very difficult (not to mention a lot of pressure).  Fragrance can be a very personal choice for many and more times then not, it can be easier to get sucked into buying a brand name or an attractive bottle.

Sephora did a great thing when they created the Deluxe Fragrance Sampler for Him set taking the guesswork out of figuring out which fragrance would make the perfect gift for the men in your life.  Each set contains 12 samples from their top-selling fragrances along with a gift voucher that can be redeemed at any Sephora location for a full-size product. This is more thoughtful than picking a bottle at random, with less of a risk factor. Plus it’s so much more fun to play with a variety of fragrances together, and help them pick their favorite new signature scent.
