Sultry To Sweet – We've Got You Covered For Every Mood

Love is in the air, or something like that, right? With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, have you thought about what makes this glamorized day even better? Everyone’s focused on hearts, chocolates, flowers, but we’re all about the perfume.

Perfume obviously lasts longer than flowers and most definitely chocolate. Fragrance, after all, is an ode to our sensuality. It’s also the perfect pick me up that will last way longer than your thing with that guy that ghosted you. Okay, well, for like at least six months depending on how often you spritz.

Perfume seduces us, it’s captivating, it’s sexy, it’s part of who you are, it’s part of your daily uniform, a sensual name badge of sorts. Valentine’s Day is also about self-love and treating yourself, and there’s no better gift than treating yourself to a new scent.

The perfume we wear is extremely personal and it changes depending on our everyday mood, sometimes within the hour. But most likely you have a signature scent—your hot-date staple, something spicy for winter, maybe sweet and floral for summer. Maybe you have a rotation of three to four different perfumes that grace your vanity...this Valentine’s Day, we encourage you to switch-up your signature scent, go outside of your comfort zone and treat yourself, or the person who pulls your heartstrings to a new sexy scent.

Depending on your scent mood, we’ve mapped out our favorite scents to guide your mood depending on what it might be. Covering all bases from sweet to sultry including scents for the men in our lives. We all want to smell delicious and irresistible and the theme for this Valentine’s Day scent is addictive, which every single one of these scents are.


Let’s start with the basics first. This scent is unisex and if soft, fresh, comforting, and clean is your scent-inspiration, this is it. It’s wildly refreshing and captures the essence of a cool breeze, which sounds delightful, since most of us are freezing and snow-covered. With notes of bergamot, green apple, fresh lemon, and cotton, this makes us dream of beautiful spring and summer days ahead.

The ultimate personal fragrance and making a bold statement from fresh and clean, this scent for women adds the right amount of spice if sexy is what you’re craving. It’s warm and musky, without being too overpowering. Key scent notes include iris root and pink pepper, which seem very appropriate for Valentine’s Day.

For the men in our lives, this addictive scent is a winner. It’s warm, sensual, sexy, and earthy. What guy doesn’t want a spicy and seductive scent – their partners included. It’s woodsy, without being too outdoorsy. It features notes of Tuscan cypress, Eastern spices, watery fig leaf, Indonesian patchouli, and cedar. It’s understated elegance and the thick glass bottle feels strong and masculine, too.

Switching gears from spicy and masculine to a soft and delicate roll-on fragrance. Plus portability is always a bonus. Especially for a hot-date-night when a fragrance touch-up is needed post-dessert. It’s Valentine’s Day afterall, a floral, especially a rose for that matter needs to be included. It’s timeless elegance, while still totally luxe and exotic, as it’s not just any rose fragrance, this one in particular has a Middle Eastern flair and scent notes of ambroxan – a deliciously musky scent and lychee. This is not a basic rose, we don’t do basic.

Keeping our exotic thoughts alive, this beautiful fragrance for women is a refreshing change from spicey and floral scents, it’s a blend of all – spicy, sweet, and fresh. Imagine a campfire with the fresh scent of juniper berries and lemon with the spiciness of pepper and pine layered with amber and sandalwood, yeah, hello. This fragrance is what scent dreams are made of. It’s gorgeously unique and sure to attract.

Our last scent is for both men and women as most Le Labo scents are designed to be worn for both. Aside from the bottle and old-school typewriter label selling us and name customization on the label (YAS!), it’s compounded by hand on the spot, making this feel so special and very personal. This uplifting and captivating scent easily transports you to a small village off the coast of Italy. Neroli translates to orange blossom and its unique freshness shines through with scent notes of deep musk and jasmine. It’s absolutely charming for both men and women in your life, or yourself, of course. Shopping for yourself is V important.
