InStyle brings you the sweetest smelling beauty products to treat yourself to this Valentin'e Day.
Oribe Gold Lust Transformative Masque
Of all the forms lust can take, an unrelenting desire for gorgeous hair might be at the top of our list right now. Oribe’s gold lust treatment penetrates deep with antioxidant-rich oils like boabab and jasmine extract while scenting hair with a signature fragrance of watermelon, edelweiss flower and lychee.
Kilian The Jewels of L’Oeuvre Noire Locket Necklace
Hidden inside this golden locket is a rechargeable ceramic disk that quietly wafts whichever of Kilian’s 35 signature fragrances strikes your fancy. Our favorite? "Love, Don’t Be Shy," a sweet, elegant marshmallow and orange blossom essence composed by eminent nose Calice Becker.
Tatcha Camellia Nourishing Lip Balm
If kisses are in the cards, this little jewel of a balm, adorned with a layer of gold leaf, will soften lips with olive-derived emollients and offer the coy encouragement of camellia blossom notes.
Chateau Krigler 12 Fragrance
Chateau Krigler’s mimosa, lily of the valley, rose, and violet fragrance was a classic long before Grace Kelly wore it on the day in 1956 when King Rainier III of Monaco asked for her hand. Launched in 1912, the scent feels timeless enough for your own modern romance.
Sachajuan Protective Hair Perfume
You might rightly guess that a mist of this hair perfume would cloak strands in the Swedish line’s signature blend of litchi, rose, peach, ylang ylang, and cedar wood—but it also tames flyaways and shields against dryness.
Skin & Co Roma Sicilian Body Gel
Orange groves scattered over the island of Sicily serve as inspiration for this foaming bath gel, which imparts a thoroughly Italian scent that’s both bright and sophisticated.
Alterna Haircare Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Shampoo Mango Coconut
A misting of Alterna’s dry shampoo at your roots keeps that blowout looking like it did on Day 1—and the mango-coconut scent offers an incredibly refined take on tropical.
Leonor Greyl Huile Secret de Beaute Or Shimmering Oil for Body and Hair
Botanical oils soften arms, legs, and tresses with finesse while leaving behind a lemongrass-tiare scent and shimmering traces of gold dust.

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser
This delicate all-natural facial cleanser leaves behind the subtlest hint of strawberries and cream as it tightens and brightens even the most sensitive skin.
Philip B Chocolate Milk Body Wash & Bubble Bath
Frothy bubbles mean we won’t be coming out of the tub for days, but when we finally do, the subtle scent will be right there with us. In the meantime, we’ll try to resist sipping the bath water.
The Body Shop Smoky Poppy Body Massage Oil
Not that you need an excuse to get (or give) a massage, but this smoky poppy scent will keep relaxing thoughts with you long after your last rub.
Rita Hazan Weekly Remedy
We almost don’t care that this weekly two-step treatment transforms hair into a pile of silky softness—the bewitching tuberose scent is magic enough.
Sonia Kashuk Yellow Alluriana Exfoliating Body Polish
A fusion of fresh citrus and verbena grounded in a musky base result in an exfoliating scrub that’s equal parts bright and sexy—and polishes rough skin to silky smoothness with milled pumice and apricot seed.
MarulaOil Rare Oil Intensive Masque
Time-release marulaspheres release notes of lemon, peach, rose petals, and white jasmine each time you flip your hair over your shoulder. Exotic oil from the fruit of the marula tree repairs and restores, leaving it soft and incredibly bouncy.
