Valentine Perfume Gift: 10 Tips for a Fabulous Valentine Gift for Your Lady


OK, so you've decided to give this year to your lady a Valentine perfume gift. Great gift choice!

Perfumes make an excellent Valentine gift for women, at the same time useful and long-lasting, but as well very romantic. Not only do most women love to wear perfumes, as they can help boost their confidence and enhance their feminine charm. Perfumes also directly convey the message of love, as many of perfume ingredients are aphrodisiacs, supposedly possessing magical power to enchant and make that special somebody fall in love with you or love you even more.

But how to choose the right perfume for her when there are so many available? And once you choose the right one, is it OK just to hand her the box containing the perfume or do you have to decorate it a bit?

Take a few minutes of your time and read the following 10 gift tips to make your Valentine perfume one of the most beautiful and memorable Valentine gifts for your lady.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel. Maya Angelou

1. Don't Rush: Take Your Time with the Perfume Choice

Take your time when buying a perfume as a gift for any kind of occasion. Perfume tastes are highly subjective and if you rush and buy a perfume impulsively, the chances to pick the wrong one are high. Take your time and select a beautiful, not a skunky gift for your precious lady!

2. Find About Her Perfume Preferences and Signature Perfume

Start by researching your lady's perfume preferences. Does she wear a perfume at all? Pay attention to what perfume she currently wears or talks about enthusiastically, ask her about her signature perfume (in)directly.

Buying her signature fragrance or the fragrance from the same olfactory family is the safest perfume choice, as you can be (quite) sure she will like it.

3. Ask Her Friends, Family or Shop Assistant for Help

If you can't directly find out about your lady's perfume preferences or her signature fragrance, try to consult her closest friends or family if possible. Maybe they already know what perfumes she likes, or they can help you define her style, the type of occasions she wears the perfume the most and similar things that can help you narrow the perfume 'target'. Also, go to the nearest perfume shop and let the shop assistant help you select the appropriate Valentine perfume for her age, personality and style.

4. Use the Wealth of the Online Perfume Information

The wealth of online perfume information is almost an indispensable source of help making your perfume choice much easier, quicker... and cheaper as well. Check out perfume websites and blogs, where you can get useful perfume suggestion lists, such as top ten perfume lists, or information about the perfume notes, suitability by age groups, occasions and seasons, information about related perfume products (e.g., scented body lotions, shower gels, travel and miniature sets), prices and discounts, and most important, customer reviews.

5. Still Having Problems with Valentine Perfume Choice? Then Choose a Perfume à la John Travolta

If you didn't have much success in choosing the right Valentine perfume by following the above tips, why not choose a perfume à la John Travolta?

Check out a list of five women's perfumes for Valentine's Day according to the intensity of love spell. John Travolta has, with a little help from his (girl)friends, danced away the love messages of each of these five magic women's perfumes for Valentine's Day.

With John's help you'll have no problems deciding at what stage your love 'spell' will be around Saint Valentine's Day this year and what love potion you have to give your lady.

6. Try (Smell) the Perfume

Try (smell) the perfume you are going to buy her. After all, you are the one who will have to smell it the most ;), so it should appeal to you too. Once you have narrowed your perfume choice down to 2 or 3 perfumes, go to a perfume shop and try them on a test blotter (paper). Now, try to imagine how the perfume would smell on your lady and if you like it. Do you ;)?

7. Words from the Heart

When I personally get a gift, the words of the gift giver written or said from the heart touch me the most and stay with me for a long time.

In true love the smallest distance is too great,
and the greatest distance can be bridged. Hans Nouwens


You can buy or make your own Valentine card and write inside a beautiful love quote or poem. Where to find them? Search your favourite romantic books, remember your favorite romantic movies or check out the quote websites. Even better, write (or say) how you feel about her in your own words. Think about your lady, what you value about her, how she makes you feel and what she means to you.

8. Wrap up Your Gift - but not in a Plain Old Plastic Market Bag!

Buying a Valentine perfume (or any kind of gift) and giving it in a plain plastic bag will ruin the whole gifting experience for the gift recipient. I should know, because I once got a gift in a plain plastic market bag at a crowded parking lot! Even though the gift was excellent and from a dear person, the plain plastic bag and the parking lot just ruined everything for me. I would rather never have gotten that gift! For me the message of that person's gift in a plain plastic bag translated to something like: 'OK, I remembered to buy you something for this occasion, but it took just two minutes of my time, as I bought it at a gas station on the way here. So, here's the gift and bye, I have to go now, I am late anyway!'

If you have decided to give somebody a gift, please show some respect for that person and some good manners. It is by far more important how the gift recipient will feel, than what the gift will be.

So, take your time to present your Valentine perfume (or any other kind of gift) in a nice way at some pleasant place. Make sure to put it in a beautiful gift bag or wrap it up in a decorative paper or other material, like cellophane. You can also go as far as to arrange Valentine perfume gift into a perfume gift basket, which can contain also other gift items, such as sweets, flowers or small stuffed toys.


9. Behave and Dress to Impress

More than a monetary value of the Valentine gift will be important how your lady will feel when you will give her the gift. Make that day special. Make her feel she is the only one, that you've prepared and that you care how she feels. So, brush your teeth, cut your nails, put on a nice suit, a red rose between your teeth and present her the perfume at some pleasant meeting place. You will impress her for this year's Valentine's Day, be sure of that!

10. Cherish Your Love Everyday

The monetary value of any kind of romantic gift is the least important, because you can't buy true love. Saint Valentine's Day is just one day in a year and if you want your love to grow, blossom and be fruitful also in the future, it needs to be nourished every day of the year.

Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit. Kahlil Gibran


However, Valentine's Day is a beautiful excuse to 'treat' your lady with a romantic gift, such as Valentine perfume. Choosing the right perfume for a precious lady in your life as a Valentine gift and some extra consideration to prepare her a fabulous gifting experience takes some time, but it is worth it. A romantic 'treat' like this is undoubtedly something that celebrates your love bond with her and can help nourish it for the future.

Happy Valentine's Day!
