OK, so Galentine’s Day is totally made up, but we’re celebrating it because it’s all about appreciating your best girls and spoiling them rotten. Our top pick? A perfume, of course. What better way of saying ‘You’re my Galentine’?
FOR THE BEAUTY-OBSESSED GIRL: CACHAREL YES I AM
Does she love a statement red lip, watch countless beauty vlogs on YouTube and match her nail polish to her party outfit? Then she needs the new Cacharel Yes I Am perfume for Galentine’s Day. Cue her latest beauty addiction, a spicy, fruity blend of raspberry, mandarin, ginger flower and sandalwood, which she’ll fall head over heels for. It’s fun, flirty and bold – we think it may even have been made for Galentine’s Day.
FOR THE FASHIONISTA: CAROLINA HERRERA GOOD GIRL FOR HER
Girls who love fashion will adore this scent. Carolina Herrera Good Girl is the first perfume in a bottle shaped like a stiletto – and we’re in awe. The rich, gourmand blend of almond, cocoa, vanilla and coffee is every sweet-tooth lover’s dream, while the bottle looks so good on any girl’s dressing table. Planning a shopping trip with your best friend for Galentine’s Day? Treat her to this.
FOR THE FREE-SPIRITED GAL: MICHAEL KORS SPARKLING BLUSH FOR HER
How cute is this? Michael Kors Sparkling Blush is inspired by women who know how to shine. Fun, exotic and fruity, this is for that free-spirited friend who defines YOLO – and once she spritzes it, she’ll want it for work, play and every day. It has top notes of lychee and pear, a heart of lily and rose petals and base notes of vanilla bean and sandalwood.
FOR THE SWEETHEART: MARC JACOBS DAISY EAU SO FRESH SUNSHINE FOR HER
Celebrate Galentine’s Day in style with Daisy Eau So Fresh Sunshine – the perfect gift for your sweet, loyal and all-round lovely best friend. Chances are, she’s already a fan of the Marc Jacobs Daisy range, so she’ll appreciate the notes of pear, mimosa and bergamot in this one. It’s totally statement-scent-worthy, so she’ll be wearing it all the time, trust us.
