Now, as January comes to a close, both couples and singletons alike look to the holiday of St. Valentine. Whether you're celebrating this day with your boy/girlfriend, with your pals, or simply not celebrating at all, everybody loves a good date perfume, and what better time for me to talk about my picks, than just ahead of the biggest date night of the year.
|L-R Viva La Juicy Noir, Naughty Alice, Manifesto.|
Viva La Juicy Noir £34.50 for 30ml
I've done a full review of this scent before (link here) and I think this is a great date perfume. It's sweet and floral, sexy but not cheap. It is long wearing with top notes of jasmine and dries down to a gorgeous scent with base notes of amber and sandalwood. I also find the scent quite young, and dare I say it, sassy (how I can get all that from a scent, I don't know)
Perfect Date Setting: Drinks
Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto £46.50 for 30mla
One of my most recent perfume purchases, and one I have been eager to get for some time. Another jasmine and sandalwood blend, this one I feel is elegant and sophisticated, and not because of the price tag. I feel everybody needs their 'fancy' perfume, and this one is mine.
Perfect Date Setting: Dinner
Naughty Alice by Vivienne Westwood £36.50 for 30ml
Last by no least, is a perfume with my name on it. Sure, that is the reason I gravitated towards it, but I do love this floral yet fresh scent. This perfume features Ylang Ylang, Black Rose and Carnal Violet notes, and it is my 'good daily' scent, so a regular daytime pick for me!
Perfect Date Setting: Lunchtime Date
So, I hope these picks have you covered for whatever situation you find yourself in this February 14th, or indeed any date you find yourself going on! All three come highly recommended from me, but totally go into store and see which scent you prefer!!
