Romance is in the air once again. No, I’m not talking about my love life; it’s Valentine’s Day in a couple of weeks and everything feels wonderfully “hearts and flowers”.
Inspired by the mood of the moment, I’ve put together my list of romantic beauty buys for girls and guys. So whether you’re gifting a loved-one, flattering a new crush or even treating yourself to mend a broken heart, here’s what to buy for February 14th:
For The Girls
Chloe Love Story Eau de Parfum Spray: a dreamy, romantic name for a dreamy, romantic fragrance. The new Chloe scent is inspired by Paris, the city of love. Blending sensual neroli, jasmine and orange blossom with a sexy hint of musk and cedarwood, its sultry aroma is bound to inspire passion!
Too Faced Sweethearts Blush: It’s this divine. A darling, heart-shaped blusher that will give your cheeks the prettiest girly glow – this is far too lovely to keep in your handbag. Subtle shimmer adds a gorgeous radiance to your skin, giving your face that first-love flush – even if you’ve been together for ever!
Agent Provocateur Petale Noir Eau de Parfum Spray: spritz on the new scent from AP and you’re enveloped by a seductive floral fragrance with a hint of oriental spice. Elegant top notes of mandarin, violet and magnolia blend with with luscious rose and ylang-ylang, while ginger, cinnamon and musk introduce a sexy zing to the mix. Sweet and spicy – just like us girls, eh?
Crabtree & Evelyn Evelyn Rose Body Cream: there’s no fragrance as romantic as classic rose, and this heavenly cream is pure rosy perfection. Its deluxe formula will leave your skin feeling soft and silky, and smelling irresistibly kissable.
For The Boys
Calvin Klein Euphoria Gold Men Eau de Toilette Spray: I love CK fragrances and this one for men is another winner. A deliciously masculine mix of ginger, basil, patchouli and amber combine in a scent that’s rich, bold and confident: basically, everything you want your man to be!
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Discover Vulcano Pour Homme Eau de Toilette Spray: with its blend of cypress, lavender and lemon, this limited-edition men’s fragrance conjures up memories of warm Mediterranean evenings and glorious holiday romances. As sexy and masculine as that dreamy Italian guy you never forgot…
Valentino Uomo Tonic After-Shave Lotion: more than just a fragrance, this tonic will cool and tighten freshly shaven skin, leaving your man looking beautifully well groomed and smelling gorgeous. And you can’t ask much more than that
Crabtree & Evelyn West Indian Lime Travel Gift Set: a perfect little grooming kit to get your guy looking ship shape, this pack contains a mini body wash, shave cream, aftershave balm and cologne. Each one is scented with C&E’s invigorating fragrance – a vibrant mix of vetiver, ginger and fresh limes. Hand this to your guy on Valentine’s Day and he might just get the hint and whisk you away for a romantic Caribbean break!
