The common, modern Valentine’s Day is a specifically celebrated day to show appreciation and love for your significant other. You get so wrapped up in the day to day routine, sometimes you don’t stop to say “thank you” and “I love you” when you should, much less at those unexpected moments. So, maybe she’s your perfect wife who is an entrepreneur but also takes charge of the house, or she’s the most fantastic girlfriend that tutors you in math, or she’s become your fiancé, in part, because she can finish your sentences before you’re done speaking. It should be your intention to admire and acknowledge her even if it’s just this one day.
You can express that intention like many others and purchase flowers and candy, or you can be extraordinary and treat her to something else sweet… new perfume. Don’t be intimidated by the unknown and afraid of making a mistake. Don’t think it may be too luxury-expensive. And yet, don’t just purchase the same, but safe, the perfume she’s had for years.
First off, let me empathize with you if that’s who you are, but also let me encourage and empower you. Take the time to shop, scent and discover so many amazing fragrances that not even she knows are available. It shows you’re invested in her personal beauty care because you want her to feel a spirited newness of confidence, boldness, and freedom. I believe she would be impressed with you!
A few great sweet boutique perfumes that can’t miss are these:
L’Univers by Gerard Monet: A newer fragrance launched in late 2017 that is indulgently sweet; notes of vanilla, patchouli, and cedar provocatively capture your attention; an oil-based Eau de Parfum of affordable luxury.
Lovely Night by Puccini: An elegant and nearly formal scent for that special occasion; sweet vanilla is abundant with a powdery cashmere and sandalwood base; this Eau de Parfum is an impressive attention- getter.
La Noche by Claude Marsal: A sophisticated and bold sweet scent derived from gardenia and other white flowers; perfect for the glamorous and expressively confident woman; a highest quality Eau de Parfum of 24% oil.
Fuchsia Diamond by Geparly’s: A best-selling, boutique Eau de Parfum from the Absolue line of fragrances that incorporates a softer sweet scent; enduring notes of magnolias, citrus, and amber promote sexy, fun, and lively…all in a transparent, fuchsia-colored bottle.
Moonrise Elixir by Gilles Cantuel: A seductive fragrance of rum and passion fruit make this sweet scent amazing; also composed of soft vanilla and tonka bean; an Eau de parfum that is truly for a woman who knows what she likes, and she’s not afraid to show it.
Whether you two have been together for weeks or decades, share something that could be very personal. Maybe the new, sweet fragrance is refreshing because of it out of her comfort zone. Perhaps you inspire her to update her style. Perhaps she just grows to like it because it’s from you. However the outcome, she happy—after all, isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is about? Making her feel special and loved!
