David Bowie and Iman are one of fashion’s all time great couples
MDC wishes everyone a very happy Valentine’s day, but shouldn’t every day have a little touch of romance? Here are a few little gifts for the one you love, or for whenever a sentimental mood strikes you.
LIGHT A CANDLE…
Flowers are a holiday tradition, but you’ve never had a real arrangement until you’ve had one from Belle Fleur. Their modern approach and attention to detail makes for some of the most beautiful bouquets we’ve ever seen. Combine these lovelies, with their heavenly selection of scented candles and room sprays and you have the perfect atmosphere for that special day. We’re into the Mayan Tuberose and Cacao Tabaq versions for creating sexy ambiance.

SEX IN A BOTTLE…
With names like Beyond Love and Prelude to Love, you might think that the By Kilian line is filled with demure scents for innocents, but don’t be fooled. These full bodied and decadent fragrances are as sexy as they come and with nearly a dozen scents in the line already, there is truly something for everyone. We love the tobacco, honey and raspberry blend of Back to Black, Aphrodisiac and the leather, rose and dark woods combo of Rose Oud. Added bonus, each heady concoction is packaged in a divine black lacquer box complete with lock and key; perfect for whoever has your heart.

A KISS IS JUST A KISS…
Even if you have no intention of spending the day kissing, there is always a good use for a fabulous lipgloss. Who can resist a shimmering pout? Make Up Forever’s Lab Shine glosses have been keeping our lips glossy all fashion week and their new spring collection is filled with bright pinks and reds – were loving fun colors like Morello Cherry and Amethyst. Best of all the richly pigmented shades last longer on lips than most glosses, so get ready to pucker up!

ROMANCE IN A BOTTLE
Our torrid Tom Ford love affair continues! When searching for the best in romantic fragrances, we discovered that Ford’s Champaca Absolute, is a favorite among brides. After taking a whiff of the mix of Tokaji wine, cognac, bergamot, magnolia champaca and sandalwood it was easy to understand why; there is an elegance and uniqueness to the scent that makes it every bit as refined as one of his bespoke suits. The warm and inviting aroma, seems like the perfect compliment to one’s special day.

We saved the sweetest for last! Every single thing at Maison du Chocolat is delectable, but the their line of decadent treats features giant versions of their popular bon bon flavors. They had us at giant bon bon.
