With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, all eyes are on one of the most talked-about couples of the moment: Taylor Swift and her recent Super Bowl winner beau, Travis Kelce. Their whirlwind romance has captivated fans worldwide, with Taylor being seen cheering on Travis at nearly every game, taking precious time away from her iconic Eras tour to show her love and support. It’s a modern love story unfolding before our very eyes, blending the high notes of pop culture with the heart-pounding excitement of…football.
Honestly, more than what Travis does, it’s much more interesting to break down Taylor’s court-side fits, the friends she takes to the games, and everything else that she (singular) is doing as a supportive girlfriend. And while you can dissect her hairstyles or her iconic lipsticks, there’s one more thing she’s wearing that’s so quintessentially Taylor – her fragrances!
Two particular scents: the floral explosion of Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum by Viktor & Rolf and the warm, earthy embrace of Tom Ford’s Santal Blush Eau de Parfum are her faves, according to Allure and Harper’s Bazaar. For anyone looking to capture a piece of Taylor’s allure, or perhaps searching for that perfect, Swift-inspired Valentine’s gift, these fragrances are a direct line to your Swiftie s/o’s heart. But since they can be a little heavy on the pocket, here’s a list of dupes as well!
Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum by Viktor & Rolf
The Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum by Viktor & Rolf is one of her few, timeless favourites. This perfume is a veritable bouquet of cattleya orchid, freesia, centifolia rose, and sambac jasmine, anchored by patchouli and vanilla.
The Pink Pepper Eau de Toilette by M&S offers a spirited and refreshing take on the opulent floral essence of Flowerbomb, with vibrant orange blossom and pink pepper notes dancing over a warm base of patchouli and vanilla.
Next up, for those who lean towards a more sensually captivating fragrance, Sambac Noix by Raahi Parfums combines the allure of jasmine with the depth of woods and spices, echoing Flowerbomb’s rich floral tapestry in a deeper, more unique way.
A playful and luminous option, Wonder Rose by Zara captures the fruity-floral essence with peach and jasmine, wrapped in the creaminess of coconut and vanilla.
Tom Ford Santal Blush Eau de Parfum
In contrast to the floral explosion of Flowerbomb, Tom Ford’s Santal Blush offers a warm, woody embrace. It’s a fragrance that speaks of exotic spices, luxe ylang-ylang, warm cinnamon, and musky woods, creating a warmth that’s both intoxicating and subtly sensual.
The Marks & Spencer Mandarin & Ylang Ylang Eau De Toilette serves as a lighter, more accessible nod to the exotic warmth of Santal Blush. It blends mandarin and ylang-ylang with jasmine and musk for a sweet, floral scent that’s refreshingly romantic.
Embracing the spicy, white floral theme, the Full Ylang Ylang Eau De Parfum by The Body Shop offers a unisex appeal with ylang-ylang, black pepper, and vanilla. It’s a celebration of natural sensuality that aligns with the earthy, woody notes of Santal Blush, offering a spicy and floral alternative.
For a cosy, warm essence that mirrors the earthy and woody depth of Santal Blush, this Cinnamon Sandalwood Essential Oil Mist combines cinnamon and sandalwood, in a simple yet comforting and inviting aroma.
As Valentine’s Day looms on the horizon, consider the gift of fragrance – a gift that transcends kitschy, offering a personal touch that speaks volumes. And what better gift to give your girl than the fragrance of her favourite pop star?
