Ahead, we’ve rounded up our top fragrance picks for Valentine’s Day. Elemental scents with intuitive names, they wordlessly convey their own unique emotions, taking the pressure out of gifting and ensuring your Valentine’s appreciation.
Velvet- is a surefire win for those Valentine’s Day haters and anyone feeling the holiday’s pressure. Inspired by the soft texture, the fragrance expresses pure romance and elegance. It’s also part of the Personal Scent Space Collection, which highlights light, ethereal skin scents designed to have you leaning in close whenever your giftee wears them. For Velvet-, notes of Vanilla, Rose and Amber are combined with sheer Skin Musk.
Look toward Book- for a gift that’ll evoke feelings of clarity and calmness. A Personal take on our bestselling Book Expressive, it calls to mind the quiet moment curled up with a good book. But book lovers and non-bibliophiles alike will enjoy enveloping in the soft, crisp scent of Cedarwood, Sandalwood and Black Tea.
Maybe your giftee is newer to fragrance, or maybe they’re someone who’s notoriously on-the-go. In either case, they deserve a fragrance that effortlessly lies on their skin like a thin veil of Paper. Paper-’s main ingredient is Iso E Super, a cozy, woody scent that blends with each wearer’s unique skin chemistry, smelling a bit differently on everyone. The Iso E Super is complemented by Amber for a skin scent that can be worn any day of the week.
Perfect for the Valentine who’s more of the nostalgic type, recalling special dates, places and memories between the two of you. Gift it as a reminder of a first date, anniversary, etc., or as a thoughtful gift for the cocktail lover. Gin is a fresh and woody blend of Juniper Berry, Lime and Ginger Leaf, notes that evoke the scent of its namesake cocktail.
