So, your girlfriend, wife, sister or mom loves wine and wishes she could splash it on herself instead of her usual perfume. Unfortunately, no one’s come up with fragrances by varietal yet. But I have the perfect gift for her anyway! Buy her a bottle of Caudalie Fleur de Vigne. If she likes fresh, energizing scents over heavy eau de toilettes, she’ll love it. The fragrance is made from the grape blossom and also has bergamot, black currant and green mate. It’s more aromatherapy, and it’ll remind her of all your favorite trips to wine country. The whole line of Caudalie is actually made using vinotherapy. The Kenwood Inn over in Sonoma has the only spa in the country that focuses on skincare and massage using grape seed extracts and other wine-related goodies made by Caudalie. I stayed there last year and all I can tell you is that it’s a real wine lover’s retreat. Sprawling wine country close enough to Gloria Ferrer and far enough away that you don’t know quite where you are. I bet they’re booked through the holiday but get a rain check. She’ll love you for it. Oh, and the fragrance is only $30 at Sephora, so you can STILL get her that bottle of Opus One. Cheers!
