Valentine’s Day is right around the corner – personally I’m neither for nor against Valentine’s Day really. I don’t get overly excited for it, but not against it either. I’m more in favour of a regular date night to have fun regularly than one day that is forced romance! But, Valentine’s Day or date night… I thought I’d share a little round up of some of my favourite date night perfumes.
Some of these are just my all time favourites – date night or otherwise! They’re mostly more on the sexy/evening side of things – some quite intense some a little softer or sweeter. But a little run down of these and why I love to give them a spritz when it comes to date night…
Paco Rabanne Black XS For Her * (John Lewis £29.50)- This is what I tend to call my ‘rock star’ perfume. Not that there’s much about me that screams ‘rock star’, but it gives me that feeling. It’s got a fruity, spicy feel to it with touches of patchouli that’s a scent I always seem to link to sexy smelling fragrances.
Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 * (Cult Beauty £65.50)- Remember when every blogger was going nuts for this? Saying it was the thing they always got complimented on and loved it… then it sort of went quiet?! Well, I still love this although I rarely wear it on it’s own as the scent is so soft it’s almost impossible to detect on yourself really. But I love this for date night as I love the idea that it’s one of those magic 01 molecules making me smell just dreamy… my favourite scent to layer with this is Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber, for some reason that combination just works perfectly for me.
Tom For Noir Pour Femme * (John Lewis £53) – Tom Ford, a brand that totally has my heart(eyes emoji). And when it comes to date night, is there a brand out there that screams sexy more than Tom Ford? I don’t think so. So this beautiful latest addition to the Tom Ford fragrance family is the Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme and it’s sexy with a capital SEX. Oh yes, this is one that makes me think of smoky dark cocktail bars in Paris. Not exactly my casual date night, but a girl can dream…. This is like a spritz of confidence in a bottle.
Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir * (Selfridges £42) – An all time favourite fragrance of mine and one I wear day or night, but I think it is one that works really well for a date night too. It’s quite a heady sweet scent, it’s one to me that makes me feel cosy and like I want to take in big old lung-fulls of the stuff. I just can’t get enough and would love to have my entire home/life smelling like this.
Aerin Ikat Jasmine * (John Lewis £88) – This is the fragrance I credit with changing my opinion on Jasmine. I never liked it before but now adore it. It’s an intense floral with a touch of sweetness and one that lingers beautifully on your skin. So if you’re going for that signature scent then you’re on for a winner with this. Plus the bottle is just gorgeous too – not that this really means much in terms of the actual smell, but it does add an extra luxury touch to the getting ready routine.
All five of these date night perfumes make perfect last minute valentines gifts too – from the subtle (Molecule 01) to the classic (Jo Malone) or the intense (Tom Ford). Something…hopefully… for everyone!
I hope wherever you are this weekend you have a whole heap of love in your life – from friends, family or the boy/girl in your life! And in general really, beyond the hearts and flowers of this weekend I hope you have a lot of love in your life too. CHEESY BUT TRUE!
