Its creeping up faster than you think....that Hallmark holiday that most of us dread every year.. VALENTINE'S DAY! We all know that fragrances (along with chocolates and flowers) are among the most popular gifts for this holiday, so hopefully we can de-mystify finding the perfect fragrance for your special someone.
First of all, you are going to want to look at what you want this fragrance to say about your man (or woman). Is this person easy-going and bright, dark and sophisticated, or down to earth and romantic? You also may want to consider sticking to a Spring/Summer fragrance for a Valentine's Day gift as these seasons are quickly approaching. What I recommend, is knowing what their current fragrance is, doing some research on the scent story, and pick a fragrance in a similar range, but maybe with an updated appeal! The #1 rule of shopping for fragrance is make sure to GET A RECEIPT and KNOW THE RETURN POLICY in case your partner doesn't share your scent sentiment!
