Valentine’s Day is a special day to show your special someone how much you care. One of the most romantic ways to do that is by giving them a gift that will make them feel special and appreciated. Fragrances are an excellent choice for a Valentine’s Day gift as they are both romantic and personal.
Whether you’re shopping for your significant other or just looking to treat yourself, there’s a Valentine’s Day niche fragrance that will wow your sweetheart.
With so many different fragrance options out there, it can be difficult to choose the perfect one for your significant other. To make your job a little easier, I’ve compiled a list of 5 niche fragrances that will make your Valentine’s Day even more special. I have chosen unisex scents to make it even easier to pick out that special gift.
- Argos Fragrances Triumph Of Bacchus: This Boozy unisex gourmand is perfect for this time of year. If you or your special someone likes to have fun and has a playful side, this scent is the embodiment of the Greek god of song, dance drinking and having a good time.
This Luxurious scent is shrouded in grandeur and mystery. Wildly romantic and fragrant notes dance beautifully together in chorus. Argos TRIUMPH OF BACCHUS is an exotic fragrance opening with Spicy Saffron, Royal Green Apple, and Rhum notes. Confident and refined Tobacco is paired perfectly with Amber and Vanilla, revealing a powerfully seductive and almost sinful aphrodisiac.
- Argos Fragrances Adonis Awakens: According to legend Adonis the Greek god of beauty, desire, and rebirth, would tragically die while hunting. Aphrodite (Venus to the Romans) would rush to his side, cutting herself on a thorn from a rose bush. The rose, a symbol of Aphrodite, created pure, and white was now a brilliant crimson shade of red, stained by her blood. A kiss from the goddess Aphrodite would awaken Adonis; thus, the circle of life would continue.
This romantic scent is both opulent and timeless. Argos ADONIS AWAKENS opens with Bright Bergamot, Grapefruit, and Pink Peppercorn. It transitions beautifully into a bouquet of Bulgarian Rose, Sambac Jasmine, Creamy Vanilla, Chestnut, and Juicy Raspberry. Base notes of Mysore Sandalwood, Cashmere Wood, and Rose Absolute produce a strikingly provocative and alluring fragrance.
- Argos Fragrances Pallas Athene: Legend says that the Greek goddess Athena sprang to life, with a tremendous battle-cry, fully armed from the brain of Zeus. On her aegis the golden head of Medusa. She holds the figure of Nuda Veritas, or ‘naked truth’ in her right hand, while in the background, Hercules battles with Triton.
Ok, so your wife, girlfriend or man is the hard to please type and also has a walk-in closet with racks of fragrances at their disposal. What do you get the person who has everything? No problem. For the boss, fragrance aficionado Argos has you covered. Their latest release Pallas Athene is available and this scent is the total embodiment of the goddess of war, the goddess of wisdom and arts…Athena. I picked up a 30ml bottle during their pre-launch event and secured my bottle before it sold out. I just checked and it is back in stock, for now.
This captivating scent is both romantic and commanding. Opening with Bright Bergamot, Delicious Red Berry, Grapefruit, and Spicy Pink Peppercorn.
Argos PALLAS ATHENE transitions perfectly into a floral heart of Peony, Violet, and Rose Petals.
Bold base notes of Powdery Iris, Mysore Sandalwood, Amber, Earthy Vetiver, Patchouli, and Creamy Vanilla produce a powerfully seductive and bold fragrance.
I get a fruity-floral top and mid on this one for sure which is the feminine part but here’s also this creamy earthy base of vetiver and patchouli that give it a touch of masculinity and dept. It is listed as unisex but this one is definitely leaning on the feminine side. A little goes a long way on this scent and just a couple of sprays lasts me a good 9 hours plus. Any more sprays and you go nuclear but if that’s your mom jam then this is a home run.
- Argos Fragrances DANAË: According to Greek mythology, while imprisoned by her father Acrisius, King of Argos, in a tower of bronze, Danaë was visited by Zeus (Jupiter to the Romans), symbolized here as the golden rain flowing between her legs. It is apparent from the subject's face that she is aroused by the golden stream.
In this work, she is curled in a royal purple veil which refers to her imperial lineage. Sometime after her celestial visitation she gave birth to a son, Perseus, who is cited later in Greek mythology for slaying the Gorgon Medusa and rescuing Andromeda.
This is a Sensual and Divine fragrance. Argos DANAË begins to arouse the senses opening with Bright Bergamot and Sicilian lemon. Seductive heart notes of Spicy Pink Peppercorn, Deep Gaiac, Cedar & Cashmere Wood transition slowly. Long-lasting and carnal base notes of Sweet & Sticky Cistus, Spicy Patchouli, Mysore Sandalwood, and Intoxicating Musk leave one enraptured in DANAË’S spell.
- Argos Fragrances Bacio Immortale: Ok so the name literally means Immortal Kiss. It doesn’t get much more romantic than that. Now, let’s say you guy or gal is a fragrance aficionado and has quite a collection of scents. This is the perfect time to do a little showing off then. Argos Bacio Immortale is a beautiful unisex scent that might just win you top honors at this year’s best Valentine’s Day gift contest.
The aura that this enchantingly sensual scent carries is timeless. Argos Bacio Immortale is a royal fragrance with perfectly blended Elegant Citrus and Smoky Oud notes.
A divine fragrance with accents of Violet, Whispers of Jasmine, Sweet Raspberry, Decadent Leather, and Deep Birch Wood that are powerfully romantic.
This fragrance stole my heart from the first sniff I took. I fell head over heels for the star note in this perfume, the Raspberry. It’s not candied or synthetic smelling at all. It’s almost mouthwatering how realistic this ripe Raspberry note is. I don’t typically like leather-based fragrances but this one has such a soft and supple leather I felt myself enamored by its depth. There is also a touch of Oud and birch wood in the base.
Again, this fragrance is Eau de Parfum concentration and will last and last. When you consider the cost of some luxury niche perfumes this one defiantly gives you the most bang for the buck and it’s unique.
No matter which fragrance you choose, you can be sure that your significant other will be blown away by your thoughtful and romantic gift. These niche fragrances are perfect for Valentine’s Day and will wow your sweetheart by making them feel special and appreciated. Whether you’re shopping for your special someone or just looking to treat yourself, these luxurious fragrances are sure to make this Valentine’s Day one to remember.

"Fragrance is a subtle Kiss that no one sees" We have taken and elevated fragrances back to their panicle in time. We wish to engage all of our senses. We seek to entice your carnal sense of smell and take your mind on a journey into some of the most ancient and romantic legends of all time. I have married my love for fragrance, Greek/Roman mythology with my passion for art history. You will be remembered wearing an Argos fragrance.
Here are some other Argos Fragrances that cannot go without notice.
Argos Pour Femme is a stunningly sensual and feminine scent. This simply unforgettable and intoxicating scent has a gorgeous scent trail, a wonderful scent bubble, and is rich.
Made from the finest essential oils, Argos Pour Femme lasts for hours and is Eau de Parfum strength. Its aromatic floral top notes produce a powerful yet intimate fragrance.
Argos Pour Femme begins with a beautiful symphony of Passionate Violet Leaves from Greece, Fresh Italian Bergamot, Exotic and Calming Jamaican Ginger, The Finest Moroccan Lemon, and Exquisite Orange Blossom Absolute from Egypt.
Argos Pour Femme transitions smoothly from its exotic and rich top into its heart of Fresh Iris Cloves, Pink Pepper, Whispers of Lavender, Wild Jasmine, Lilly Of The Valley and Sweet Bulgarian Rose.
Argos Pour Femme finishes remarkably with Rich Sicilian Sandalwood, Warming Amber, White Musk for depth, Exotic Oriental Vanilla Bean, Soulful Tonka Bean and Calming Ylang Ylang.
Argos Fragrances packaging is some of the most elaborate and beautiful ever seen, and don't get me started on the bottles!! We are talking about ultra-luxury here. Having held one in my hands personally, I can say there is absolutely nothing like it. No corners were cut here. This bottle could be used as a weapon; it is so thick and heavy, and it literally weighs over a pound. The glass is hand polished and stands erect like a powerful Greek column. Some of the artwork metal plates are even hand painted and adorned with crystals.
There is a recessed area on the front in which a solid metal 3D artwork relief designed by the perfumer Mr. Petrovich is inlaid. These plates are hand-painted and have crystals adorning them as well. These are works of art, not just your typical run-of-the-mill fragrance bottles.
I now have six of the brand's eight current releases, the Pour Femme, which I absolutely adore, and so does everyone around me. When I am wearing this warm, floral masterpiece, I can literally feel the attention of the room gravitate towards me. Trust me, this is like catnip for men.
Do not wear this unless you are comfortable with garnering that much attention. I also have the brand's current number one hit, the Triumph of Bacchus. Which I honestly didn't think I would like at all with the note of tobacco composition. I have fallen absolutely in love with this scent. So much so that I am questioning everything I used to know about my taste in perfumes.
This one has opened up my olfactory preferences, and I am ready to explore more. This is absolutely a to die for fruity gourmand with a sweet but so real tobacco coupled with a top shelf Rhum note that is stunningly intoxicating.
I have also heard from the brand that they have up to 4 more new releases coming this year. I was fortunate to pick up NEMEAN LION before is sold out during their last presale event. I think it sold out in 2 days. My guy is already 3/4th of the way through his 100ml bottle I purchased for him and I now whish I had gotten a backup bottle.
I know that Argos Fragrances often sell out so I’m not taking any chances. I have already secured 2 of these masterpieces for my significant other and another Adonis Awakens. My current 30ml is running dangerously low and I am upgrading to the 100ml. The piece of mind alone, knowing that I’ll get mine before they sell out is good enough for me.
I spoke with one of the brands representatives and Nemean Lion should be back in stock my mid 2023 or towards the end of summer. The other 3 or 4 releases will also be available mid-2023. I don’t know about you but that sound of not one, two but 3 or 4 new Argos Releases has got me super excited!!
Before you ask, Yes…There are samples of the entire Argos Fragrances lineup available. Kudos to Argos Fragrances for making it super easy to get a sample pack to try these niche fragrances out before you commit to a full bottle. They have also thoughtfully released every fragrance in both 100ml and 30ml sizes. Luxury niche fragrances are not cheap, and neither is the beautiful juice inside each one of these gorgeous flacons. So, if you have a sample pack you can at least pick your preference and then if you can’t afford the 100ml you at least have the 30ml option to start with. I have my nose set on ADONIS AWAKENS 100ml as my next purchase, and I cannot wait until the new fragrances come out. This will be hands down the sexiest gift you can get your loved one. I’m not even playing around with the 30ml this time. I’m going full on 100ml for next bottle of ADONIS AWAKENS.
It's one thing to smell these on a tester strip and quite another to smell these on the skin. It's a very sensual experience to smell this caliper of scent on a man or a woman. The results are unexcitingly carnal and arousing. There is definitely something else at play here that is unexplainable without experiencing it firsthand. My suggestion to you is to get your hands and nose on this fragrance house immediately. I know several of their fragrances have sold out, and with the Valentine’s Day holiday is literally 2 weeks away!! I wouldn't be surprised if these go out of stock.
The message from Argos Fragrances is crystal clear. If you are into fragrance and you want the very best, look no further than Argos Fragrances.
If you want to show your woman or man that you care, and that you’re appreciative all while seeming to have spent a fortune and spent months picking up the most thoughtful and unique gift then do yourself a huge favor and get her an Argos Fragrance and while you’re at it get her the sample pack. Chances are they are going to love several of their perfumes and when their birthday or Christmas rolls around next and you’re scrambling to find the perfect gift you’re going to know exactly what to get them next.
P.S. – You’re Welcome!!
