Valentine's Day is about treating yourself, too. While most people would take that as a cue to book a plane ticket to somewhere across the globe, you don't always have to go far to try something new. In fact, picking up a new bottle of perfume could be enough to refresh your senses and liven up your soul with a fresh dose of self-love. Check out the new fragrances we're loving this month!
1. For a bright, on-the-go scent:
The radiant citrus notes of Chanel's Chance is the kind of scent you'd want on you all day. Thankfully, Chanel gave it its very own refillable atomizer, which you can drop into your purse and spray whenever, wherever.

2. For a skin-like musk:
With the word "fleur" in its name, you'd think that a whiff of this scent from Diptyque would be like lying on a bed of flowers. But actually, Fleur de Peau is inspired by the smell of skin that's deep, real, and endlessly alluring. It starts out with a blend of mandarin oranges and bergamot, eventually sharing the spotlight with musk and amber.

3. For a unique floral:
Oud Silk Mood is a blend of exquisite floral scents that glides over your senses like the fabric that inspired it. It contains Bulgarian rose, bergamot, and blue chamomile to achieve a smooth kind of elegance, combined with oud from Laos that adds a romantic depth.

4. For an uplifting, sophisticated citrus:
If you could press a rainbow and turn it into a bottle of fragrance, this would probably be it. Kate Spade's Live Colorfully is as bright as can be with sparkling mandarin balanced by pink water lily and star anise. The unexpected hints of vanilla, musk, and coconut water result in a beaming fragrance that you can effortlessly take from day to night.

5. For a clean, minimalist floral scent:
We all need a fragrance we can simply spritz on without hesitation, something that will smell good no matter what. That is what Tiffany & Co.'s new perfume is all about. Tiffany is a universally pleasing floral scent with the sophistication of musk and patchouli. It's a clean, everyday perfume that feels as effortlessly chic as the brand's jewelry.
