Setting The Scene
So, you’ve cancelled all of your plans and you’re staying home this Valentine’s Day - but who’s to say that it can’t be your more romantic evening in ever? Forget Netflix and chill, we’re thinking some serious wooing is in order with some tender mood lighting and sensuous, strategic scenting (and don’t forget that lovingly home-cooked meal)...
When romance is well and truly on the cards, this showstopping candle will make the right impression. Its craftsmanship is pretty extraordinary; the candle burns only on the inside, leaving the hand-applied dried rose buds that are embedded into the outer wax completely intact!
Sultriness is the name of this game with this luxurious glass-bottled room spray. It’s a beautiful (and easy!) way to instantly transform the feel of the room, with delicious notes of vanilla, amber and sandalwood, accented with a floral touch of violet.
Divine by name, divine by nature! This seductive treat from skincare brand Caudalie is inspired by the scent of their bestselling body oil, featuring notes of rose woods and soft musk. The relaxing aroma is so enveloping, you won’t be able to resist getting a little closer.
Inspired by the English Countryside, this tender ode to the rose is ideal for creating a more lighthearted Valentine’s Day mood. Diffusers are the simplest way to continually scent a room, simply insert the reeds into the liquid and let the fragrance gently emanate some romance.
Looking for something a little more... tactile? Jasmine is well-known for its sensuous aroma. This seriously versatile essential oil from Tisserand can be used in an aroma diffuser to scent your living space or added to a carrier oil to add a special touch to a massage.
If your Valentine’s Day plans are more sweet than sultry, this darling candle from Annick Goutal is just the ticket. Its fresh blend of cut grass and musky rose is accented with a ripple of peach and pear, creating the perfect mood for a chaste kiss or two.
