Howdy, all you lovely Posse folks. I just recently realized that Valentine’s Day is upon us later this week. So I’m wondering, what’s a sweet, spicy and/or chocolatey scent that might hit the spot on the big red heart day on Thursday for you guys?
I know some folks don’t celebrate it, and it irritates some people who see it as crass commercialism at its finest, and I understand, to each his own. But my philosophy is that you try to show your loved ones how you feel all year-round, but it’s kind of fun to get a little hearts and flowery for a day.
At our house we don’t do a whole lot on Valentine’s Day, but do exchange cards and give each other a treat or two. I’m giving my DH two of his favorite goodies: pistachios and good flavored coffee. My teen wanted a DVD and is always happy to get those Lindt/Lindor truffles, especially the white chocolate variety.
Anyhoo, when it comes to sweet, indulgent scents, Indult’s Tihota, Jane Booke Taken and Montale Vanilla Absolu really hit the spot for me. Guerlain’s Spiriteuse Double Vanille, Cuir Beluga and Tom Ford Vanille Fatale add a boozy-ish little kick to the sweet tooth, and Le Labo’s Vanille 44 chimes in with incense smoking up its sweetness. Incense also plays nicely with the chocolate, vanilla and black iris goodness of Armani Prive’s La Femme Bleue.
What about you? What scents give you sweet happiness? And if you do celebrate Valentine’s, what are your plans?
Have a great week, everyone!!
