Valentine's Day is license to vamp it up (like Halloween — except you don't have to be a sexy version of a cat or a nurse, you can just be a sexy version of yourself). And what better way to do that than perfume? The stuff is basically sex in a bottle. Or, as fragrance expert Marian Bendeth put it so much more eloquently: "Perfume is like cocktails without the hangover, like chocolate without the calories…" Here are the most alluring new scents from three brands that know how to heed Cupid's call to action.
Fruity (melon, raspberry nectar) and floral (Brazilian Paradise orchid, lily), this flirty mix is for the girl who just wants to have fun. A spritz brings to mind those iconic Guess Girls with tousled hair and seductive smiles.
For romance with a touch of elegance look to Vera Wang. Her floral blend of freesia and apricot blossom is warmed up with a sophisticated base of cashmere woods, sheer musk, and white amber.
If your idea of a perfect V-Day is in the club with a bottle of bub, this decadent scent will transport you there. The fruity floral oozes sex appeal with juicy notes of nectarine, orange flower sorbet, and succulent red fruits.
