Valentine`s Day is just around the corner, so it`s time to think about the trinket of affection you are wishing for from your special someone. Selecting a gift can be easier said than done, however, since chocolates can set your New Year`s diet resolutions back a few weeks and sexy lingerie just isn`t right for everyone. A romantic Valentine`s fragrance may be the perfect solution; as the gift that keeps on giving and the perfect offering that both of you can enjoy. But what are the most romantic fragrances to shop for?
To help you determine which type of fragrance will be the best, the scenes are broken down into fragrance families. Some of these categories sport a fresh, clean scent, while others are classified as spicy and still others are referred to as earthy. Many romantic fragrances come from the floral family, which offers a sweet, innocent aroma with oils from flowers like gardenias, roses, violets, and carnations. Another popular fragrance family that is known to inspire romance is the chypre family, which is referred to as earthy with a combination of earth and floral scents. For a more sophisticated, sexier scent, head to the oriental fragrance family for a heavier scent with a hint of spice.
To ensure that your Valentine`s fragrance lasts all night, fragrance layering is the key. This means combining a variety of products in the same fragrance that will give your scent the extra boost it needs to stick with you. Fragrance layering can begin in the shower with a scented shower gel, followed up by a moisturizing lotion. You can then spray your eau de toilette at the pulse points for maximum fragrance benefit. Men can also follow the fragrance layering rule, with shower soap followed by deodorant and an application of cologne or aftershave.

Designer and Celebrity Fragrances
When in doubt about the right fragrance to buy, check out the items offered under designer or celebrity names. Keep in mind that celebrity fragrances are not limited to women only, so keep your eyes open for well-known names in men`s products as well. If you know your mate is a big fan of one of the many celebrities offering his own fragrance product, perhaps that particular fragrance will make a good gift for your him.
Judging a Cologne by its Cover
When it comes to the most romantic Valentine`s Day fragrances, sometimes it`s all about the packaging. Look for scents that come in classic perfume bottles, in colors that you will want to show off on top of your dresser. The packaging consideration will particularly work well in women`s fragrances since what`s on the outside of a women`s fragrance is nearly as significant as the scent within.
Romantic fragrances are the perfect choice for Valentine`s Day to wear and to give. Take care to select a scent that will show your love to your significant other, and you will indeed give the gift that keeps on giving. Romance is in the air.
