Ghost Girl perfume is celebrating the most romantic day of the year with a gift with purchase – ideal if you haven’t managed to come up with an original present idea of your own, or indeed if you are self-gifting. For a limited time this floral scent comes with a cute make-up bag and two lip crayons in Berry and Blush. Get them till they’re gone, girl.
