Two French perfumes to get you in the Valentine’s Day mood

Love is in the fragrant air ...

Hair & Beauty

So come tomorrow, you’re probably looking to pull out all the stops in the glamour stakes. But for a truly seductive perfume that will stop your date in his tracks – it needs to be French, no two ways about it. Here are two scents that make us feel like Josephine Baker in an instant.


Love Story by Chloe 

Without wanting to sound trite, this new offering from the dreamy Parisian fashion house seems to echo the dizziness of falling stupidly in love with someone. It envelops you in a cloud of pretty orange blossom and jasmine (jasmine is famed for its ability to deliver sex appeal to a perfume). A warm base of cedarwood gives it depth and staying power, the bottle looks beautiful on a dressing table too. £39.45 Fabled


Rose Pompon by Annick Goutal 

This truly ups the ante in terms of sex appeal. Designed to capture ‘the first flush of love’ it’s got intoxicating notes of Bulgarian and Taif roses, while the addition of raspberry and blackcurrent notes add a certain sharp sweetness without overpowering everything. Plus the vintage-style bottle is pure old school glam. If someone gave us a bottle of this for Valentine’s Day, we’d instantly swoon… £52.50 Escentual
