Valentine’s Day Scents

Valentine’s Day is a time to seduce and delight the person you love most, and nothing romances quite like appealing to all your loved one’s senses. You might want to pour your significant a bubble bath so that they can feel warm water on their skin. You might cook or order a special meal to entice their taste buds. You may buy beautiful flowers to appeal to their sense of sight and you might play favorite music to create music for their ears.

Of all the senses, however, none set the stage for romance quite like our sense of smell. Science has shown that smell is most closely linked to our memories, so that a whiff of favorite scent can remind us of the first time we met or went out on a date with that special someone. Since ancient times, certain scents have been used as aphrodisiacs to stir the senses and seduce. You can use this same allure this Valentine’s Day.

The easiest way to create a wonderful ambience for romance is with quality scented candles. Candles fill your home with scent and soft glow that is perfect for a romantic evening. The scent of good quality scented candles can fill the whole room. The key, of course, is to choose good quality candles. Low quality candles may produce more soot and impurities – not exactly romantic. Lower quality candles also tend not to last as long, and you don’t want to be fussing with candles when you should be gazing into the eyes of the person you love best. Worst of all, lower quality candles produce poor quality scents – either too overpowering and sweet or else barely noticeable.

High quality scented candles use high quality perfumes. The result is a rich scent that is never overpowering or cheap. Most quality candles layer their scents, combining notes of fragrances (just like the best perfumes do) to create a rich and heady scent that is perfect for romance. Good quality candles from trusted manufacturers also use pure ingredients that are safer for you and produce a longer, cleaner burn time – with no fussing. Of course, good candles are also beautiful, contained in jars and boxes that are miniature works of art.

Some of the top candle manufacturers produce Valentine’s Day scents, or candles that are perfect for the romance of this special time of year. These candles are perfect as a way to set the mood for the evening. They also make amazing gifts for that someone special. For example, the Amouage First Rose candle is based on one of the most-loved scents in the world: the scent of the rose. This candle is created using the rare and prized scent of the Damascene rose. Notes of musk, geranium, citrus, and frankincense create a rich, complex, and memorable scent that is perfect for an evening of romance. Why spend a small fortune on roses that will fade the next day? Give your beloved an Amouage First Rose candle and he or she will enjoy hours of luxurious scent. Each Amouage First Rose candle burns for over 40 hours and is packaged beautifully in a frosted jar embossed with a gold logo silkscreen. An embossed brass lid makes this a beautiful piece of décor as well.
