8 Sensual Fragrances That Are Perfect for Valentine’s Day

Romance in a perfume bottle? There’s only one way to find out.

By: Hannah Baxter

No matter what your plans are for Valentine’s Day, it never hurts to leave a lasting impression on whomever you’re with for the evening. For us, that means wearing a memorable fragrance that lingers long after an embrace. Bold, intoxicating, mysterious, and romantic, these are the eight scents we swear by for enticing anyone you get close to this February 14th.


Malin + Goetz Dark Rum Eau de Parfum, $95

Reminiscent of a dark bar (where you met a mysterious lover, perhaps), this perfectly balanced perfume is sure to entice any lucky person on Valentine’s Day and beyond. Just add a spritz behind each ear, your inner elbows, and anywhere else your body heats up first, like just below your navel.

Vince Camuto Illuminare Eau de Parfum, $98

This fragrance definitely wins for the sensual curves of the bottle, but the juice inside is just as lovely. Plum blossom and bergamot offset the classic rose heart, with a tonka bean and cedar finish that ensnares anyone who comes close to you.

Gucci Guilty Love Edition Pour Homme, $95

Citrusy, woody, and luscious, we’re major fans of the men’s version from this limited-edition Gucci fragrance. Patchouli and vetiver ground the scent so it never feels too sweet, while bright notes of mandarin and kumquat leave anyone in your vicinity wanting more.

Ralph Lauren Romance Rosé, $98

If you want to feel your most womanly, then this sparkling floral scent is about to take up permanent residence on your vanity. Juicy lychee fruit blend beautifully with crisp red apple and lush black currant for a delicious and enticing fragrance that only gets better with time.

Azzaro Wanted Girl Eau de Parfum Spray, $70

With top notes of ginger flower and pomegranate with a warm base of dulce de leche, patchouli, and tonka bean, this delectable scent is alluring without ever leaning too sweet. Ideal for a romantic Valentine’s night.

Tiffany & Love Eau de Parfum for Her, $135

The newest women’s scent from Tiffany’s is crisp and refreshing, perfect for making the cold season feel much more enjoyable. The floral woodiness comes from blue basil, neroli, and blue sequoia, among others, for a vibrant blend we adore for spring.

Balenciaga Paris, $87

Is there a more romantic city than Paris? We certainly don’t think so, which is why this Balenciaga fragrance is our go-to for pretending we’re taking a long, leisuriely stroll on the Seine with the person we love the most. It’s meant to mimic the scent of dried flowers left in a book, for a timeless and mysterious effect.

Burberry Her Intense Eau de Parfum, $136

Dark and intoxicating, this fruity-meets-floral update to the classic Burberry Her fragrance has us hypnotized. The sweet, warm notes of benzoin are offset by rich jasmine and blackberry for a finish that lingers in just the right way.
