As a Valentine’s Day gift, you can’t go wrong with a designer eau de parfum.
One of my faves is My Burberry, a fragrance designed to capture the scent of a London garden after the rain.
If you haven’t traveled to London, imagine a contemporary floral scent with a delicate heart of rose and a light touch of geranium.
For fashion fans, the posh bottle is also a keeper. The bottle is inspired by the Burberry trench coat and its deep heritage of British design and craftsmanship. It features a bow made of cotton gabardine used in classic Burberry trench coats and a tortoise shell-colored cap.
Here are the notes of this every day fragrance:
- Top Notes: Sweet pea and bergamot oil. The oil is sourced from Calabria in Italy and extracted from the fresh rind by cold expression.
- Heart notes: Golden quince and freesia with a dash of geranium oil. The oil is sourced from Morocco and Egypt, extracted from the plant by steam distillation.
- Base notes: Rose absolute and patchouli oil. The oil is sourced from Malaysia and Indonesia and obtained by steam distillation.
TIP: To make your fragrance last, apply unscented lip or body balm on pulse points then mist your fragrance on the points.
