Best Valentine’s Day perfumes for her and for him
The gift of fragrance is a notoriously great Saint Valentine’s Day present for both males and females. It is one of those gifts that everyone benefits as the nice smells remind you of the special someone who gave it to you and the happy moments that came with it. However, since there are so many fragrances out there, it can be a tough choice as you go Valentine’s Day shopping. Therefore we’ve put together a guide of the best fragrances for her and him.
Last month we broke down the best Jo Malone fragrances, however this fragrance line can be a little bit pricey when it comes to a bottle of perfume for your girlfriend, and we recognize that some are shopping on a budget, which is why we absolutely love the Clinique Happy Heart scent. This scent is a spinoff of the classic Clinique Happy, a light floral and citrus scent with notes of Hawaiian wedding flower, red grapefruit, and boysenberry bush flower. The Clinique Happy Heart spray increases the beautiful floral effect with hyacinth, primrose notes, and includes sweeter citrus smells from mandarin and cucumber. The fragrance was launched in 2003 and continues to be a best seller from Clinique, a division of Estée Lauder.
Cologne is the typical go to for men, but as it was also covered in last month’s Jo Malone post, cologne is simply a weaker version of perfume with fewer layers of notes. However, it seems that some manufacturers have forgotten this classification as they produce overwhelmingly strong colognes; there is seriously nothing worse than a man wearing too much and too strong of cologne. Fortunately brands like Clinique have this in mind when creating their fragrances for men. Clinique’s Happy for Men is described as a cool and crisp scent with a hint of citrus. This perfect combination for men’s cologne is perfect for your guy if you are looking for a memorable gift that will make him think of you every time he puts it on. While some colognes can be overpowering, there is nothing nicer than the fresh smell of a guy with a good cologne on.
