Hello Everyone!

So it's less than a month to Valentine's Day and if you're looking for some gift ideas I have a few! I was lucky enough to go to the launch of these two fragrances last year (some of the perks of working for a magazine) and if you're like me and like strong, spicy fragrances these would make the perfect choice. I'm not great at describing scents so here's what they're officially described as:

For Her - Giorgio Armani Rose D`Arabie
"Rose d`Arabie is a majestic ode to the essence of rose. Spicy with flashes of saffron at the outset, it chooses patchouli and dark woods in order to develop at the heart. At the base it gives itself up to the sensual harmonies of golden amber."

For Him - Ralph Lauren Polo Supreme Oud
"The new fragrance of the Ralph Lauren Polo collection is oriental masculine fragrance The oriental-woody composition begins with spicy accords of pink pepper and cinnamon. The heart features a smoky accord of Indian oud, laid on the base of vetiver and guaiac wood."

Both of these fragrances are available in Essenza (there's one at the Palms Shopping Mall, Ikeja City Mall and Ebeano Supermarket) for purchase.


Seeing as most of my readers are female, I'll be giving away one BRAND NEW boxed Ralph Lauren Supreme Oud for you to give to your boyfriend, husband, crush, father etc on Valentine's Day. All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me why you want the perfume and I'll pick my favorite response:) Competition closes on February 8, 2014.

Please note the winner must be able to pick up the perfume from Victoria Island, Lagos or bear all delivery costs. I won't be able to deliver outside of Nigeria sorry:(

Good luck!

Update: Thanks to everyone for their entries! This giveaway is closed, click here to see who won!

  2. Hi Ifeyinwa, I want the perfume because my husband and I are newlyweds (Dec 20,2014) and Ralph Lauren Supreme Oud is my husband's current and favourite perfume. The perfume will run out before Valentines day. It will be a delight to see his happy face if I am able to get him a replacement as a gift.

  5. If I win, I'll actually be giving the perfume to my Dad. He had an eye surgery in December last year and while we are thankful to God for sparing his life, it will be a very sweet way of saying thank you to him for being there always. Besides, he LOVES perfumes, lol. So will definitely be great to win this.


  6. My dad isn't a perfume kind of person. If I get to win, it would be quite interesting to see his reaction when I give him. www.coilyheadofhair.wordpress.com

  8. Oh this would be a perfect gift for my husband, as I really wanna make this upcoming vals day a memorable one, it's our 7th valentine's together.

  9. My finacé actually saw this perfume and told me about the great reviews on it. As it's valentine's season I intend to treat him to a lovely dinner somewhere nice. The icing on the cake would be this perfume asides it being something he's craved for since it's release, nothing would make me more joyous than to have him wear it and envelope me with its scent. Would be nice to win something too.. Lol

  10. I want the perfume because it'll be a nice subtle way of telling my significant other that he needs to invest in some quality fragrances to beat his body odor...which has proven unbeatable in the last couple of months! Hopefully, I can move up to antiperspirant deodorants from there.
