With a one-year anniversary coming up (next week!) I have been thinking about the ideal anniversary gift. Couples fragrances to me are a beautiful gift, one in which not only can you treat that special someone in your life but you too also get a little gift. I am not just talking his and her fragrances but gender fluid pairings too.
Emporio Armani Stronger For You / Because It’s You
This is the fragrance I want to buy my man and me. The two fragrances have an alliance that balance & empower each other, as the symbol of powerful love. It’s all about being better together, stronger.
Because It’s You is happy, delicious and sparkling: simply irresistible like a ripe raspberry in its perfect and most elegant naturalness when combined with neroli notes. The fragrance plays with her powers of seduction as vanilla mixes with musk, revealing a sophisticated and incredibly dark sensuality.
Stronger for You is lives in the present, moulded by the energy of modernity. Unpredictable, he surprises with his originality, like the spicy accord in the top notes – a mix of cardamom, pink peppercorn, and violet leaves.
Burberry Brit Rhythm for Him and Her
Burberry Brit Rhythm for Him and Her feature identical bottles, in black for him and pink for her. Not so much a couples fragrance but more of a simple paring.
For him, a woody scent infused with leather and amber, while top floral notes with a powdery finish complete the women’s version.
Prada La Femme Intense & Prada L’Homme Intense
Prada has launched these two fragrances keeping them gender fluid, and this is shown throughout all the marketing and press materials.
La Femme Prada Intense is an Eau de Parfum with a sultry, almost oriental quality, which exudes a heady sensuality. The intensity of the fragrance is achieved by magnifying the Tuberose, Ylang-Ylang and Patchouli at the heart of its composition.
L’Homme Prada Intense expresses the multiplicity of male identity through intense Amber, and Patchouli notes that cross paths with the floral refinement of Iris, while the introduction of Tonka Beans brings an airy, oriental dimension to the top end.
It is on the pricer side with La Femme Prada Intense retailing for $304 for 100ml at Farmers. The L’Homme Prada is a lot cheaper at $196 for 100ml.
