Armani Sì Passione
We’ve got a whole in-depth feature on Armani Sì Passione here but it definitely deserves a place in our romantic Valentine’s day fragrances picks. Armani Sì Passione is a scent that exudes class, sophistication and romance. From the design of the bottle to the juice contained within, it is the epitome of romance.
The fragrance opens with the ardent spicy pink pepper, like a burst of adrenaline. The floral heart of the fragrance beats passionately, thanks to its rose undertones. Sì Passione combines intense vanilla with the blooms of rose, heliotrope and jasmine to create a sensual, fruity floral scent, reflective of the simultaneous delicacy and strength of femininity.
At the very heart of Sì Passione is cedarwood and the modern ambery-woody Orcanox™, giving a maturity and character, mirroring a boldness of emotion, evoking true passion. Available at www.boots.com now.

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Amyris Extrait de Parfum
Maison Francis Kurkdjian fragrances are the epitome of luxury. I believe that I am correct in saying that perfumer Francis Kurkdjian has worked on many of my favourite scents, including the My Burberry collection.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Amyris Extrait de Parfum is one of the most truly beautiful, captivating scents you will ever find. Its head is in Jamaica, and its heart in Florence. The Amyris extrait de parfum is inspired by the Parisian lifestyle and the latest concoction from Maison Francis Kurkdjian. Its centre revolves around Amyris, a tree born under the Jamaican sun and Iris, the subtest of Florentine flowers. Together, they instantly kindle a flame, a flame that never dies. A floral, woody and luminous fragrance.
This is a scent to truly treasure. The ultimate compliment receiver (whenever I wear this I’m asked what fragrance I’m wearing, without fail ) its long lasting scent makes the perfect statement without being overpowering. Perfect for special occasions. Maison Francis Kurkdjian fragrances are available here: www.franciskurkdjian.com
