Show your love to your significant other this Valentine’s Day with a thoughtfully chosen gift

FOR HER

IN FULL BLOOMImpress your lady love with a romantic rose-scented perfume. The rose — cultivated on an organic farm in Bulgaria — is at the heart of Chloe’s Signature Naturelle Eau de Parfum. The bloom joins neroli to form a velvety bouquet. Cedar base notes further lend a woody signature that leaves a lingering impression. The scent is housed in Chloe’s signature bottle, accented in a shade of green-grey that also appears on the box as well as the ribbon tied around the bottle’s neck.

$179 for 50ml; available at department stores, including Sephora, TANGS, Metro Paragon and Causeway Point, BHG Bugis, and One Assembly Raffles City

Inspired by the locks placed on bridges by lovers all around the world, this new Pandora piece is the perfect way to capture and immortalise your love. The Padlock & Key dangle charm is available in three metal variations: sterling silver, 14k gold-plated, and rose gold-plated.

$99 for sterling silver, $149 for 14k gold-plated, and $129 for 14k rose gold-plated; available at all Pandora stores and estore
