We all know Valentine’s day isn’t exactly a real holiday. It is however, an opportunity to show the object of your affections a bit of love. Whether this means heading down to agent provocateur or booking a table at the Ivy, the point is clear, it’s a time for giving, and hopefully receiving.
Whilst its not necessarily essential to buy a gift, if you are, its best to give a gift that will be of use or amusement.
This year, my gift of choice is Tom Ford’s Noir extreme. It’s special, he’ll probably know of the designer (since everyone from Becks to Gandy has worn him) and it’s luxury of the highest calibre. It’s also, rather handily, a scent with unisex appeal. The heady mix of mandarin oil, neroli, saffron, amber and jasmine instantly makes you want to ravish it’s wearer; handy for you and him.
Noir Extreme will be sold at counters nationwide in May.
