Valentine’s Day Perfumes - Dior, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, Chanel, Chloe

For Valentine’s Day, a lovely scent is the perfect accessory. Among plenty other insightful commentary, Coco Chanel said that “a woman should wear perfume whenever she wants to be kissed.”  Talk about a power quote! I’ve tried many perfumes in the past, and I love each new product I discover - I’m not picky about the exact notes of a perfume, but I do want a ‘lovely feel’ about the scent (if that makes sense).  I often look for floral and fruity finishes for every day and more earthy, almost masculine tones for evenings or events. Overall, I find perfumes to be a good beauty investment because the actual product tends to last longer (plus, it’s the easiest way to spruce up a look!). 
Chanel Chance - sultry and sensual this Chanel classic has a mix of floral, fruity, and earthy notes (reviewed here)
Miss Dior Eau de Toilette - delightfully sheer this scent features tangerine and caramel popcorn (reviewed here)

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau so Fresh  - whimsical and enchanting with notes of strawberry, violet, and gardenia (and the packaging makes for the best vanity decor)

Chloe Eau de Parfum (affordable mini set) - one of my absolute favorites, a ladylike scent with sophisticated rose and peony notes (seriously, if you’re picky about perfumes, Chloe fragrances like See by Chloe and Roses de Chloe are universally flattering).
Vera Wang Princess - simply sweet and youthful scent with vanilla, lily, and apricot (reviewed here)
Viktor and Rolf  Flowerbomb - the ultimate flower fragrance with notes of freesia, jasmine, and orchids
Le Couvent des Minimes Botanical Cologne - a splash of refreshing and unisex fragrance with herbal and grapefruit notes
What are some of your signature fragrances (I’d love to add to my collection)? Hope everyone has a lovely scented Valentine’s Day (even though it’s not a ‘real’ holiday, it’s the perfect excuse to celebrate mid-freezing-February). 
Stay Pretty, Miranda M.

    Such gorgeous pictures, Daisy is one of my all time favourites, though I think Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb is my all time signature scent, I’m already on my second bottle and I never repurchase perfumes :)

    I love anything rosey like the Chloe Roses de Chanel, I don’t own it but every time I walk past it I have to spritz it on!Something about rose scents just puts me in a very girly mood lolz. Also love the simplicity of Jo Malone fragrances and if you like floral, their Peony and Blush Suede is lovely, or if you are into fruity warm scents, their Blackberry & Bay,,actually there are a few more scents from Jo Malone that are just frikken awesome (but pricey!!)

    k.f.c. =P

      I agree, roses used to be an “old” scent but the newer fragrances put such a youthful spin on it! Thank you for the Jo Malone recommendations - I was browsing their candles this past weekend and loved loved the peony based one but I didn’t realize they had scents too (I thought the bottles were also room scents …fail moment haha). Will have to check them out, Jo Malone seems to have good note combinations!
