Fantastic Scents And Where To Buy Them

Hey, lovely wives! Have you decided what perfume or cologne to wear this Valentine’s day? If you’re like me who prefer perfume that are not too strong, I have some recommendations for you  that I am sure you and your husband will love.

Jo Malone Wild Bluebell

The scent is so delicate yet mesmerizing. Although it is quite pricey for a cologne ($130/100ml), it still is my favorite everyday scent. It’s so feminine and it smells like you just got off the shower.

Lanvin Eclat

I discovered this scent when one of my friends wore this on her Wedding day.  The scent is as elegant as its bottle. The scent is very warm and inviting. Your husband will definitely fall in love with you all over again.

Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline EDT

Florary and woody at the same time. Just the right smell to match a little red dress. I usually wear this scent whenever I have client meetings.

That ends my Top 3 recommended Valentine’s Scents. What about you?  Do you still rely on the current weather to choose which scent to wear? I used to do that too before I came across these three brands. Now, I don’t have to collect too many scents and end up not using them for a long time because either the scent is too “summery” or too formal for a lunch date. These scents are so versatile and can definitely be worn on any occasions.

There are some online stores selling these scents for discounted prices. My favorite online shop so far is The Leather House PH.

Order thru their Shopee account to avail free shipping fee and Cash on Delivery.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Celebrate LOVE month with TravelBook

If you’ve been reading our blog for some time, you already know that Miguel and I had been through a very challenging year and skipped on celebrating some special occasions like Valentine’s day. This year’s Valentine’s Day is going to be extra special because Miguel is already at the pink of health.  I would love to spend this year’s Valentine’s day in a Hotel within the Metro.  I don’t wanna travel that long and deal with our worsening traffic situation.

Miguel and I need some time off and just spend some quality time together, setting aside work and other stuff. Discovering new Hotels is one of the things that we enjoy as a couple. Disconnecting from the real world is healthy and it’s not necessary that you travel that far to do it. Especially that February 14 falls on a week day this year.
