7 Perfumes to try for yourself or gift for Valentines Day


I’ve always been a big fan of scents– I’m constantly burning through new candles, buying fresh blooms and trying new perfumes. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day coming up this month, I wanted to share some of my favorite scents in my current rotation.  If you are planning on grabbing a new scent, or buying for someone else, it is good to focus on diversifying the types of scents you wear or buy. Pay attention to scents intensity, type and notes. I usually gravitate towards ones that are floral, woody, fresh/citrus, oriental, or a combination.

1. D&G Light Blue

D&G Light Blue

Best for everyday wear: Citrus with Cedarwood. Truthfully this is the first perfume I ever purchased, so I have been wearing it for a long time. It never fails and is liked my most. A safe bet for a gift

2. Elie Saab Le Parfum L’Eau Courture

Elie Saab PerfuemBest for going from day time wear to night: Fresh yet sensual. Slightly more sophisticated than D&G Light blue.

3. Marc Jacobs Daisy


Best for the girls’ girl: fresh and feminine, yet innocence. Another sure win– I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like this scent.

4. Tory Burch


Best for the no-fuss chick:   This scent is light enough to be able to wear to work. It has floral notes of peony mixed with crisp citrus notes of grapefruit, which makes it smell very fresh and reminds me summertime.

5. Si by Giorgio Armani

Armani SiBest for date night:   This scent is sexy, for sure. A bit more towards the ‘woodsy’ category, this sent is fun for night time wear.

6. Marc Jacobs Decadence

Marc Jacobs Decadence

Best for something a bit different:   I was totally sold this scent…and it has grown on me a lot. It is super sexy with wood notes mixed with amber, iris, jasmine and bulgarian rose. It is definitely a dominant long lasting scent, so best to try it before you buy it!

7. Coco Channel Noir

Coco Channel Noir

Best for the big meeting or an event: For me, I only wear very little of this scent. It is strong, womanly, yet powerfully sophisticated. It makes me feel a bit older, so it’s always my go to when I have an important meeting or work event.
