Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

Hey BIC!

 

Valentine’s Day is coming up in two short weeks! Whether you are going to spend the day with your besties, your significant other or with number one we want to know your ideas for what makes a great Valentine’s Day! We know that many are struggling to figure out what to gift and may also be stressing over planning a date idea.

 

This community is always full of great ideas so I wanted to open up two questions to you to see if we can help the greater Sephora community out:

  1. What specific fragrance(s) would you love to receive as a gift (Sephora brands please!)
  2. What’s a fun plan for Valentine’s Day with or without a  plus one? Please share suggestions for romantic date tips, a night of self-care, etc. Smiley Happy

 

Can’t wait to read your responses and hopefully fall in love with new fragrances!

 

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

We celebrated early, last night.  My husband brought home Tex-Mex so I didn't have to cook dinner, which was very sweet of him!  I bought the kids some candies from See's; it's become a tradition for us. 

I've been curious about two Jo Malone fragrances for a long time- Orange Blossom and Wild Bluebell.  I once had a bottle of orange blossom water from France that King Arthur Flour used to sell (I can't find it anywhere anymore,) and I always hoped to find a fragrance that smelled just like it.

@KatieBT My daughter and I had an amazing Galentine adventure yesterday! (cross-posting from the Llama Thread)

 

We went to Goat Yoga in the morning and got to play with the cutest little goats - I'm not gonna lie - they were a little distracting because they kept trying to nibble my toes and water bottle while I was trying to follow the instructor, but it was sooooo much fun!

Then, after a lovely lunch, we visited a nearby vineyard where the owners kept a llama to guard over the goats on their property!  He was so beautiful and such a sweetheart!  He even followed us along the fence to our car when we had to leave - I wish I could have taken him home with us!

I can't wait to see what the rest of Valentine's week has in store! <3

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@Tamara76  How fun!!!  The baby goat is adorable.  What is goat yoga?

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@Ispend2much6 Goat yoga is basically a yoga class with a certified instructor, but they have baby goats running around the room while you're doing the poses!  It was soooooo cute!!! <3

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@Tamara76 I honestly don’t think I could fathom a more perfect activity. What a blast!!

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

Thanks, @KatieBT!  It was a perfect day!!!! <3

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

I am way too picky to feel comfortable setting anyone up to fail in selecting a fragrance I’d wear, I mean I’m supposed to like them more than that! 

 

The mister and I have been foster parents with two girls for about a month now and will be spending Valentine’s Day as a family - cards, a little candy, and dinner together is the plan. And a little ‘adult time’ after the kids are in bed. Smiley Wink

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

1. I'd love to receive: The Aerin Coffret Set https://www.sephora.com/product/eau-de-parfum-fragrance-coffret-P414786?skuId=1871995 , Atelier Silver Iris or any of their new candles. I would also love Assam of India by BERDOUS https://www.sephora.com/product/assam-india-P418118?skuId=1942937 . I love perfume so I wouldn't be too picky. I think Prada Candy would be a good all around pick for someone.

 

2. Since I'm very single (lol) I'll pick without. Usually I'm working. But I think a great day would be to take oneself shopping, go to a fancy cupcake store and get a few cupcakes, pick up a new movie, cuddle up with a pet and watch the movie and afterwards take a nice romantic bath. Followed by a fabulous night time skin care routine and a face mask.

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@Samtian  have you tried any of the other Berdous scents?  I'm actually intrigued by them, but they don't carry them at my local Sephora stores.  The one I am drawn to most is the rainforest type one (I think green bottle).

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@modernwarpaint I have! They had a sample set out earlier. I'll have to look and see which one you are talking about. 

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

Would love to have Tom Ford Vert Boheme, which I wore to my wedding and is so special to me! Or, for a new one, I would love to try this new EL Hibiscus Palm, sounds amazing, like a tropical vacation.  I used to work for EL, but it’s been many years! 

 

I am old so a night in with a lovely homemade meal, champagne and an indulgent dessert sounds like heaven to me!

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@KatieBT

  1. What specific fragrance(s) would you love to receive as a gift (Sephora brands please!): NEST's Wisteria Blue because it's new an exciting to me; Philosophy Amazing Grace Ballet Rose and YSL Parisienne because they're so romantic; Aerin Hibiscus Palm as a surprise because the I find hibiscus very pretty but haven't had the pleasure of trying this scent yet.
  2. What’s a fun plan for Valentine’s Day with or without a  plus one? Please share suggestions for romantic date tips, a night of self-care, etc. Valentine's Day for a plus one: Since it's on a Wednesday night, maybe a light dinner at home followed by a movie watched by candlelight.  For without a plus one: a gift exchange with the girls!  It could be something small like lip glosses, something funny like re-gifting Christmas presents, or all out with flowers.  

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@greeneyedgirl107 Have you sampled the Philosophy Amazing Grace Ballet Rose or the Pure Grace Nude Rose? I'm really interested but cannot find somewhere to just sample before getting full size. Thanks for your input!

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@yankeefaithful I sampled the Amazing Grace Ballet Rose at Ulta and really liked it.  I thought it competed well with Roses de Chloe (to my unsophisticated nose, at least!) and was more affordable.  I hope to sample Pure Grace Nude Rose...I haven't seen it at my Ulta, but mine isn't one of the good ones.

 

I didn't know that Philosophy was sold...that probably explains why their Fresh Cream looked and smelled so different to me.  Thanks for the heads-up!

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@yankeefaithful I have both and recommend them highly. They are huge improvements over the original scents, and very lovely. Really beautiful fragrances. For me, there was nothing to Pure Grace but Nude Rose has the additional layer of the delicate rose, while Amazing Grace was far to powdery for me, but Ballet Rose is nice and balanced. 

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@alexasteph I agree with your assessment of the original scents.  They didn't do anything for me.  I always wondered why the QVC shoppers swooned!  

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@alexasteph. Thanks for the info! I personally loved the originals, but they had changed somewhat since Philosophy was sold several years ago. I may take a chance and try one of them.

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@yankeefaithful Nude Rose is actually a 100 pt reward right now.

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

@alexasteph. Thanks so much!!💞

Re: Valentine's Day Fragrances and Activities

  1. MM Fantasies: Wicked Love. Seems appropriate. Smiley Wink
  2. Sitting in the hot tub, drinking wine with my boyfriend. That'd be a perfect night for me. Smiley Happy
