A plastic rose-wielding teddy bear isn’t something to scoff at, but it isn’t making us swoon either.
Thanks to a clever new collaboration, there’s an antidote to any V-Day malaise. The Venice-based scent boutique Strange Invisible Perfumes teamed up with floral artist Holly Flora to create jaw-dropping perfume and flower gift sets available for delivery.
Select a small, medium, or large arrangement (think soft pink peonies and bright red anemones); choose your scent (we love the newly launched Dimanche with notes of iris, rose, honey, and amber); and let the romance begin. To take it further over the top, add tempered dark chocolate by Cocoa Absolute.
Think of it as one-stop shopping. Of the heart-stopping variety.
