Romantic flirtation has been a rare indulgence during lockdown, but throughout history, a seductive way to attract a partner has been through the magnetic draw of fragrance.

Legendary seductress, Cleopatra, filled her boudoir with rose petals and her myrrh based, cardamom and cinnamon perfume which left Mark Antony and Julius Caesar in thrall of her presence.

In the modern world, an irresistible perfume cuts through dating awkwardness and intrigues admirers, breaking the ice for conversations, as people notice that you stand out from the crowd. It’s an easy way to deliver a compliment – nothing boosts confidence more than being told that you smell amazing.

For a romantic Valentine’s gift option, indulgent perfumes create unforgettable memories. Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a luxury perfume that hits all the right notes.
