Valentine’s Day is creeping up on us with a quickness and if you’re like me, you are not even close to knowing what you’ll be giving your Valentine on February 14th.  Thankfully I’ve received lots of great emails recently with some great scent suggestions for the lady in your life this Valentine’s Day (I’ve even tried a couple) so I thought I’d share some of the most promising with y’all!

6 Perfume Picks for the Lady in Your Life this Valentine’s Day

First up is my personal favorite Lady Gaga Fame.  I have to admit, I was a little (ok, a lot) skeptical about whether or not I’d like Fame, but it turns out that Kerry Washington
(Kerry stars in Scandal and when she was interviewed by E at the Golden Globes Kerry said,“I literally was one of the first people in the world to have her Fame perfume…I am obsessed!”) isn’t the only Fame lover…I am too.  Seriously,
Fame is definitely my new favorite perfume choice!  In addition to smelling amazing (I’ve seen it described as, “lustful, floral, fruity essence for fabulous little monsters” and I think that description matches it perfectly) it’s also black, which is a first of its kind technology, and come on, who doesn’t love black?  lady-gaga-fame

You can pick up Lady Gaga Fame at Macy’s and other select retailers available in 3.4 oz bottle for $79.

While I haven’t tried the next few perfumes, I will be reviewing a couple coming up soon so make sure to keep an eye out for them!

The flirtation continues with a tease of rare Brazilian Paradise Orchid, intoxicating Acacia Flower, and alluring Lily.
