When we think of Valentine’s Day, images of roses, hearts, romance and a lot pink and red often come to mind. I won’t be excluding all those pretty feminine hues in this post, in fact you’ll be getting a heavy dose today along with details on a modern fragrance from Elizabeth Arden that is sure to turn heads!
Scent is thought to affect attraction and mood and when you think about it, it makes total sense. Lavender and certain botanicals have aroma therapy benefits to calm and relax and we seem to love freshness, florals musk and sweetness. Sometimes human pheromones are also quite pleasant and whether we realize it or not, many of us are highly attracted to our partner’s natural essence. Admittedly I love the smell of aftershave and cologne on men; I find it sexy, appealing and attractive! The alluring scent of a fabulous, feminine perfume may also have the same effect on guys, which is probably why the right fragrance adds the perfect finishing touch to a trendy date night outfit.
Whether you are looking for a thoughtful gift for a loved one or an intoxicating treat for yourself Elizabeth Arden’s Always Red Eau de Toilette will create a delicious new love affair! The seductive red and black ombre bottle evokes timeless sophistication and daring style with undertones of mystery, passion and lust.
A good indicator of a scintillating perfume is sheer obsession. When I wear this fragrance I bask in the indulgent sent all day and as it lightly fades and meshes with my body chemistry it smells even better! I can’t seem to get enough of this decadent blend and my husband finds it quite captivating as well.

The rich, creamy pigment glides on effortlessly to drench lips in light, satiny color with subtle luminous sheen.
