Valentine’s Gift Guide 2022
24 January 2022
There are generally two types of people – those who love to love on Valentine’s Day and those who love to hate the day itself. Hey… we’ve all been there!
Of course, regardless of romantic status, any occasion which calls for a new fragrance or treat is right up our beauty editor’s street. So whether you’re compiling your wish list to sneakily leave around your significant other, are buying a treat for yourself or looking for ideas on what to get for “The One”, you can be sure to find some inspiration below, cherry picked just for you from the allbeauty Valentine’s Collection.
With notes of Cucumber, Mandarin, Cassia, Water Hyacinth and Carrot, this fragrance is classed as a Chypre Floral. A riff on Clinique’s famous Happy fragrance (more on that Nineties Nostalgia covered here), gifting this fragrance is one sure way to make someone smile.
You could say that this perfume is a real sweetheart. With top notes of Spearmint, Lemon and Pineapple, this juice is fresh and spontaneous. Described as being modern and elegant, this is the perfect scent to wear when you’re feeling romantic.
Get your heart racing with this vibrant beauty of a bottle. Launched in 2003, Amor Amor is a Floral Fruity nectar with notes of Blackcurrant, Orange, Mandarin, Grapefruit, Apricot, Rose and Jasmine. It’s love at first sight!
Amber Vanilla aromas come to the fore in Hypnôse, which also has top notes of Passion Flower. Sensual – the bottle is designed to emulate the form of a woman’s silhouette, with its blue hues designed to hypnotize the viewer, like a pair of blue eyes.
Who doesn’t love a night in with salon products? This luxury balm effortlessly removes dirt and makeup whilst providing a rejuvenating milky cleanse to soften the skin. A 100% natural blend of Lemon, Mandarin, Orange, Bergamot, Rosemary, Thyme and Cedarwood will leave your loved one feeling pampered to the max.
Are you ready to feel captivated? This fragrance brings together Tart Blackcurrants, Enchanting Orchids and Patchouli to deliver an intense scent. Described as inspiring “a world of deep and narcotic love”, will you fall for Euphoria Intense?
Boss is a brand which prides itself on success – and this aftershave designed for evening wear is no exception. Notes include Bitter Birch Leaves, Aromatic Lavender, Lemon Leaves, Cardamom, Jasmine and Louro Amarelo – commonly known as Spanish Elm.
Inspired by traditional Japanese baths, this fragrance represents strength and balance. With traditional Japanese citrus accords and aquatic facets, this scent is a cascade of notes, evoking the power and beauty of a waterfall. An absolute fragrance classic.
Japanese Yuzu accord, White Musk, Cardamom and Vetiver are expertly blended in this woody oriental fragrance. This scent is designed to pair with Emporio Armani She – in fact, the minimalist looking bottles are magnetically attracted to each other and slot together when side by side.
A woody spicy fragrance, this contains notes of Lemon, Pineapple, Birch, Musk and Jasmine. Rumoured to smell very similar to Creed Aventus…
Launched in 2019, this is a fragrance designed for adventurers. Be inspired to explore all four corners of the globe through scent – with Bergamot from Italy, Patchouli from Indonesia and Vetiver from Haiti featuring as some ingredient highlights. For the final touch of luxe, the bottle itself features leather craftsmanship, with the sleeve made by hand at the Montblanc Pelletteria in Florence.
This one is a must-have for tattoo fans! The bottle design, complete with tattoo “La Graffiti” styling inscribed, represents the courage of wearing your convictions on your skin forever. With notes of Red Apple, Mandarin, Amber, Patchouli, Pepper and Sage, this is a romantic yet subtle scent.
