Valentine’s Day is near and even if date night is at home, you should still have a sweet and flirty scented perfume to make you feel your best!
The sweet scents I’m sharing in this post are vanillary gourmand scents. Of course there are plenty of floral and fresh sweet scents but these are my particular preference!
If you would like to purchase any of the fragrances mentioned in this post, please see the links beneath each one mentioned.
Ellie Saab – Girl of Now
This is one I’ve discovered recently and I love it!
The main notes in here are almond and vanilla. Personally, at the start, I smell the orange blossom strongly but it fades with the dry down.
After the dry down, you get the scent of an almond biscuit which is amazing to me. I love smelling like cake and candy so I can’t get enough of this.
It’s perfect for date night due to its longevity and protection after you apply. The projection does fade however as it dries down. Personally, I don’t mind, I just keep smelling my wrist!
My boyfriend loves this scent too, it’s one of his favourites! He always mentions how good I smell when wearing it!
If those points haven’t persuaded you… then just look at that bottle! It’s so unique and definitely screams luxury.
Britney Spears – Fantasy
Very old school but still one of my favourite sweet scents! This perfume is so incredibly sweet that you’d eat it if you could!
With notes like cupcakes and white chocolate, this scent is not one to be missed if you’re looking to attract a date!
Of course you should wear perfume for yourself, however, males are very attracted to sweet scents, and personally, as a girl, I love them myself! So, whoever you’re trying to impress, it’s likely they’re a sucker for a sweet scent!
The bottle is slightly immature but the scent makes up for it!
I use this more as a body mist. The longevity is good but it’s much better on clothes and I find it projects more on clothes too!
This sweet scent is a must-have for light-hearted date nights! Think bowling or the cinema, rather than expensive restaurants!
Dolce and Gabanna – The Only One
This one is my boyfriends absolute favourites!
At first, I wasn’t all too keen on this, mainly because it’s not what I was expecting!
On reviews, I read of a creamy, cozy vanilla scent but really to me, it smelt like Parma violets – until the dry down!
It does take ages to dry down but that’s when you get the vanilla and it’s amazing!
Now, it’s started to grow on me. One thing is true however, through and through, this is a sweet scent that is perfect for date night.
Longevity is amazing and it projects fairly well. You’ll get whiffs of this through the day and it’s reassuring to know it’s still performing well!
Personally I think you can wear this both day and night as long as you don’t overspray for day time!
Dior – Hypnotic Poison
If you’ve read the post on my favourite body products then you know all about this!
Hypnotic Poison from Dior was my first high end perfume and made me obsessed! It’s a rich vanilla that is perfect for date night!
I personally have the eau de toilette version and despite being less concentrated than a parfum, it lasts so incredibly long and has a huge amount of projection!
You really don’t need a lot of this perfume, it’s very easy to overspray. I’d say all you need is 2 sprays on the neck and one on each wrist. You’ll still smell it at the end of the night!
You’ll definitely feel sexy in this perfume so it’s fantastic if you need a little confidence boost. It’s called hypnotic for a reason!
Aquolina – Pink sugar
A classic sugary sweet scent! Aquolina mastered the candy floss and burnt sugar scent here!
It definitely isn’t for the faint hearted, it’s very sickly sweet but I love it! Not only that, but it’s many guys’ favourite scents too!
Despite again, being an eau de toilette, it’s very very strong and projects crazily through the day. For some, it gave them a headache but I don’t get that at all.
It depends on personal preference.
I use this as a body mist and honestly, this spray smells amazing your clothes the next day. It smells like cookies! The perfect sweet scent!
YSL – Black Opium
Definitely the most well known of them all and for good reason!
This gorgeous scent is made up of vanilla, coffee and white florals.
It’s the go-to scent for nights out and the reason? It’s sexy. So, what more could you want for a date night scent?
It’s mature, captivating and addicting and was made to be worn with confidence. This isn’t just a sweet scent, it’s got depth and layers which is why others love it so much.
Personally, it’s not my favourite but it’s definitely a good sweet scent for date night. Your date will be sure to love it, whatever age or gender you prefer!
Whats your go-to date night scent? Do you go sweet, floral, fresh or spicy?
