The Essential Guide To Valentine Day Gifts For Her

The Day of Judgment draws nigh. December 21st? No, worse, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, waiting for you like a thief in the night. St Valentine’s Day was once a holiday began in 496AD based on a simple premise, show your love to your mate in a meaningful simple manner.

Flash forward to the dark times, a time in which simple gestures are no longer welcome unless you’re in grade school. These days a man may be judged not only by the gift but the manner in which the gift is presented.

Is Valentine's Day Special To You?

I can’t help you with the presentation as I’m totally clueless and need help in this area. What I can do is help with a few wish list items for VDay. Let’s jump right in shall we.

Fragrances have always rated high with women especially on Valentine’s Day, here are few suggestions:

Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift

Released in 2011 Wonderstruck is said to have been inspired by the song Enchanted. This fascinating scent will leave you Wonderstruck with notes that include:

  • Top Notes: Apple Blossom, Dewberry, Freesia, Green Tea, Raspberry
  • Middle Notes: Honeysuckle, White Hibiscus, Vanilla
  • Base Notes: Amber, Musk, Peach, Sandalwood

If the notes don’t tell you what this perfume is about the song will. Along with the perfume, an appropriate presentation could include lyrics from the song to commemorate your first meeting, first date first kiss.

Check out the song, check out the lyrics, convert them to your style and jot them down. Try writing a little something extra in the card this year beyond your signature. It’s cool and you won’t lose your man card if you let your lady know how your felt when ya’ll first met.

You won’t lose your man card I promise.

Worried about losing your man card for expressing your feelings toward your woman in a manner mentioned above? Don’t worry, I have just the fragrance for you. The next women’s perfume also shows up in the music world in a tune where a guy takes another approach to show how he feels about his woman.

Flower Bomb by Viktor Rolf

With lyrics that include “Flower Bomb, let me guess your favorite fragrance is,” it’s not a far stretch to suggest our next most wished for fragrance Flowebomb turns up high on the most wished for fragrances for the ladies.

Released in 2005, this combination of citrus and musk notes is sure to make your woman happy as she sprays it on the evening of the 14February. This perfume classified as Oriental/Floral features:

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Tea
  • Middle Notes: African Orange Flower, Freesia, Jasmine,Orchid, Rose
  • Base Notes: Musk, Patchouli

While this scent has a floral tag, it’s not overly floral. A word of caution, a little goes a long way. This scent in my opinion shouldn’t be worn settings such as work or school. It’s just too strong. It does however make a nice romantic evening fragrance.

Gucci Guilty for Women

But don’t worry one hug and you’ll smell her better part of the day. Gucci Guilty for Women like her male counterpart, Gucci Guilty for Men has staying power beyond that of many perfumes on the market today with notes that include:

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Tea
  • Middle Notes: African Orange Flower, Freesia, Jasmine, Orchid, Rose
  • Base Notes: Musk, Patchouli

Gucci Guilty for Women released in 2010 features softer notes than the proceeding scents. Guilty makes for a nice work or school perfume she’ll love. Guilty will create feeling of guilt as you’re forced to part with her as she goes about her day.

Speaking of Guilty for Men, why not treat yourself and create a nice couple style presentation. His and hers matching perfumes. Think of the visual, your bottle of guilty sharing space with her bottle on her dresser drawer causing her to think of you through the day.

  • Top Notes: Pomegranate, Yuzu (Japanese grapefruit hybrid)
  • Middle Notes: Lotus, Magnolia, Peony
  • Base Notes: Amber, Mahogany, Musk


The musky amber finish provided by the base notes makes for a perfume to remember. In a great bottle, one of my favorites Bright Crystal also makes a gift to remember you by.

I hope this short list helps. Remember, Valentine Day only comes once a year make the most of it.
