Whether handwritten and stored in a special box, or encrypted in emails, nothing stirs the heart like a love letter. From your special one, a love note is more than just a message, so for Valentine’s Day, we selected scents whose very names include the most powerful word we know and — LOVE!
IF HIS NOTES...
...are postmarked from all over the world:
Love in Black from CREED, created by Erwin and Olivier Creed as an tribute to Jacqueline Kennedy, captures the brilliant sensation of traveling the globe using ingredients from exotic lands: night-blooming wildflowers from the Greek isles Violet from Italy, Virginia cedar, Iris from Florence. The only problem with this traveling man? Letters are about all you get regularly! Available at CreedBoutique.com.
...quote Byron and Browning: For sheer poetry and romance, your fragrance is Aimez Moi eau de toilette; violet sandalwood and amber are captured within an elegantly sculpted Grecian Urn, I mean, bottle. Available at ParfumsCaron.com.
...are layered with hidden meanings: Parfum Delrae’s Amoureuese, by le nez Michel Roudnitska, is an opulent perfume that is both complex and simple. Sweet notes of tangerine, honey, exotic cardamom surround the opulent heart of heady, seductive jasmine, the “queen” of passion. This complex fragrance goes on sweet and dries down sexxxy. Luckyscent.com & First-in-fragrance.com
...are romantic and innocent: Philosophy’s Falling In Love Eau de Parfum is a deceivingly demure floral fragrance that intensifies with layering. This soft blend of vanilla, soft florals and ripe berries goes on sweet and dries down sexy. Available at Sephora.com.
...what notes? Too risky! His text messages arrive via his second blackberry. It sounds like you both are Beyond Love: prohibited by Kilian, and caught up in carnal and clandestine encounters. Slightly minty and cool at its beginning, this scent heats up to an uninhibited and heady floral in a matter of minutes. When classic tuberose meets dirty musk…double bolt the door.
