While she makes an effort to dress up for your date, why not complete her ensemble with something that adds twinkle to her eyes or a scent of love in the air?
There are not many women in this world who wouldn’t be charmed by one of two things – jewellery and fragrances. A romantic meal or treats for Valentine’s is almost a given, but these are a more tangible and lingering reminder of your affection.
So, while she makes an effort to dress up for your date, why not complete her ensemble with something that adds twinkle to her eyes or a scent of love in the air? (If you’re attracted by the smell of perfume in a woman, the latter works to your advantage too).
Here’s our gift guide of jewellery and fragrances to captivate her sense of sight and smell this Valentine’s Day.
