Mother's Day Gifts With Fragrance Direct

Friday, March 21, 2014
I think this perfume gift set is the most beautifully packaged/presented gift set ever! I was able to choose this gift set to review by the amazingly lovely people at Fragrance Direct. I have made quite a few orders through Fragrance Direct before with my own money so I definitely wanted to work with them. Even though this product was sent for review it does not change my opinion of the brand/products, my opinions are my own - for more information on my disclaimer, click here.
I have the *Valentino Valentina Eau de Parfum Gift Set (50ml, £52.50) which I have to say is just so beautiful, I am a bit of a sucker for packaging and this box and perfume bottle are divine! I haven't owned a perfume from Valentino before but I do always give them a sniff when I am browsing through Boots etc. Firstly, the delivery time was good and the gift set was very well protected. 

Now, the packaging, I really cannot say enough good things about the packaging and presentation of this fragrance. The box looks like a designer hat box, it is a gorgeous pale pink with a ribbon so you can carry it I guess. The box would be great as a storage box too, it just looks so decadent, luxe and super expensive in my opinion. The set looks like a stunning Mother's Day or birthday gift. For these photos I did want to have pink flowers but I could only find red, I think I am going to start doing the typical blogger thing and have flowers in more photograph backgrounds, so pretty! The perfume and lotion bottles themselves are equally beautiful. 

The fragrance contains top notes of tuber and green apple, middle notes of jasmine, strawberry, African orange flower and tuberose and base notes of cedar, amber and vanilla. It sounds just like the type of fragrance that myself and my mum love. It smells divine, I think it would suit a wide range of ages as it is a feminine, floral but musky fragrance that I think most will love.Overall, a lovely fragrance with equally lovely packaging that would make a fantastic (and very luxe) Mother's Day gift!
