The gift of flowers and perfume, improved


flowers and perfumeWhat could improve upon the romantic pairing of flowers and perfume this Valentine’s Day? A naturally made scent of organic, wild-crafted, and healthy hydro-distilled essences—instead of one that sets off sneezes.

Alexandra Balahoutis, the founder of Strange Invisible Perfume, is passionate about “a strictly botanical palette” (no synthetics) in her fragrances.

The perfumer has partnered with a bespoke florist and chocolate-maker for a very special delivery she calls When Love Comes Knocking.

It starts at $205, plus tax and delivery, and includes a bouquet (choice of three sizes), a Strange Invisible Perfume of your choice, and Cocoa Absolute chocolates, if you wish. And if my Valentine happens to be reading this, my favorite is Musc Botanique! —Melisse Gelula
