Scent sensation

ostens_fragrance

You really can’t go wrong with giving perfume at Valentine’s Day. Especially when it’s a beautiful fragrance such as Ostens‘ Impression Rose Oil Isparta eau de parfum containing 432 Damask rose heads. Incredibly they are hand picked at first light, ensuring that each one retains its highest concentration of fragrance to deliver a rich and bold aroma. If roses aren’t your thing, try the Impressions Jasmine Absolute as it captures all the holiday feels like hot pink sunsets, balmy skies and sparkling blue seas. The combination of Egyptian jasmine, violet leaves and ylang-ylang evokes a Mediterranean summer evening under the stars, surrounded by white flowers scenting the air, and boy do we need that right now. 50ml £175

Tipsy Truffles

love box

The aptly named Love Box from Smith & Sinclair is a luxury gift box filled with ten edible cocktails. The perfect way to get Valentine’s night started, or you could have for breakfast. We’re not here to judge. Flavours include cocktail favourites; Passionfruit Mojito, Mandarin Spritz, Cosmopolitan, Tequila Sunrise and Berry Daiquiri. These alcoholic cocktail gummies hold a subtle kick at 5% ABV, but as they sensibly advise on their website: please eat responsibly, remember sophistication not intoxication. Always good advice. £15
