What do you do after you have pampered your body and mind, and are feeling all refreshed and relaxed on Valentine’s day?
Of course, you dress up for an exciting outing with your significant other, whether it be an individual, a group of friends or just yourself. But – and we know that this is beginning to sound as old as the words ‘new normal’ that seemed to almost always colour everything we did and said last year. We are still in strange, precarious times, and going just about anywhere on a day that will most likely be busy might be a bit too adventurous for the average human.
So, your outing may be a romantic evening dinner at home. Or a romantic staycation at a hotel or local short-let apartment. Or a noisy affair with friends plopped in front of a large screen watching a movie or competing in some virtual game. Whatever activity you would be indulging in, it is certain you would not only want to look your best, but you would also want to smell your best and basically put your best foot forward. Segue in our next gift idea for Valentine’s Day.

Founded in 2009 by Julien Sprecher whose love of perfumes was passed down from his father, Parfums de Marly is a high-end perfumery brand which conjures up a dreamlike state with its “signature” fragrances, a strong position and concepts that are short, striking and direct.

Feel its irresistible force the second you splash it on from its top notes of blood orange and black pepper; middle notes of lavender and orange blossom and base notes of moss, Tonka bean, white sandalwood and amber.

The Spirit of Dubai is quite simply a personification of the city.
