It’s the most awful day of the year for the single, the recently divorced, and the eternally lonely; on the other hand, it’s a big celebration for the happily married, freshly engaged, and all the others struck by Cupid’s potent arrows. It’s none other than Valentine’s Day, and it’s coming up fast!
Chocolate, flowers and perfume are probably the most common V-Day gifts, and for good reason. They’re all associated with romance and desire, and the right combination might just help you score with your date. Here are my top beauty and lifestyle picks for this year’s gift-giving needs, all for a fraction of the retail price at FragranceNet.com.
For her body:
A girl’s first love might be her man, but it’s always followed closely by her shoes. Footwear designer Jimmy Choo released his signature perfume in 2011, along with this luxurious Jimmy Choo Perfumed Body Cream. Housed in a textured snakeskin box and heavy glass jar, the shea and sunflower seed oil-infused cream smells like toffee and patchouli, a downright sexy combination. Find this totally chic yet humorously hippy accessory on FragranceNet.com along with the EDP for a startling 38% off retail!
For her skin:
Nothing says Valentine’s Day like roses, and everyone knows roses are skin’s #1 friend. From my all time favourite Australian skincare brand, Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist has your name all over it. Close your eyes, mist the fine spray on your face, and let yourself be transported to lush fields filled with soft petals. Open your eyes and see your makeup refreshed, your spirit renergized, and your skin looking hydrated and glowing. Yes, please! Normal retail is $35, FragranceNet.com price only $29.99* with the frequent 25% coupon.
For her cheeks:
Picking makeup as a gift is tricky, because there’s always the chance you’ll choose the wrong colour. You don’t need to worry about that with the Clarins Odessy Face Palette, an ultra fine-milled pressed powder that works as blush or bronzer on lighter skin tones and setting powder or highlighter on medium to dark skin. Underneath the gold overspray the powder is matte and super comfortable on the skin, a true multitasker that even comes complete with a red velvet carrying pouch. Find this on FragranceNet.com for $27.99*, original retail $55, and swirl lightly with a brush to apply.
For her neck:
Everyone wants to be treated like royalty, especially by their lover. The story of the princess that falls in love with a prince at the ball is as old as time itself, and with this perfume on you might just feel confident enough to command the room’s attention and get your happy ending. Notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, and powdery florals make this a fantasy you’ll want to experience for yourself, and the heart-shaped bottle comes complete with a wearable ring (which sadly doesn’t fit me; I tried). The full-sized Vera Wang Princess EDP is only $33.99* on FragranceNet.com, and comes in variations such as Glam and Preppy to customize your gift.
For his neck:
We can’t leave the guys out, now can we? If you’re looking to treat your boyfriend or husband to a surprise, then you can’t go wrong with Abercrombie & Fitch’s Fierce Confidence. If the name doesn’t spark your interest, masculine notes of pure spicy amber and citrus will. When he wears this you won’t be able to stop smelling his neck – and hopefully you’ll grab his shirt so you can smell it the next day, too! Don’t worry about the bottle, if nothing else it’ll make him (me) want to get more in shape. This uncompromising fragrance is only $84.99* on FragranceNet.com, so make sure to grab one before they’re gone!
