Valentine candles and perfumes can be used to set the mood of Valentine's Romance. In Valentine candles, light floral scents are considered traditionally romantic. An earthy scent like fresh cut grass or the smell of fresh fruits is also deliciously pleasing. Cinnamon, candy and the aroma of freshly baked cookies are some of the other popular scents used in Valentine candles. The candles should be in earthen colors or calm and pleasing shades that inspire romance.
Aromatic oils and incense to add romance to the occasion. Some romantic aromas or romantic scents such as sandalwood, jasmine, cinnamon and anise can be used to make the atmosphere pleasurable and inviting. Flower petals can be added for that final touch. The things to be most kept in mind is that one should not overdo things, the scents should not be overpowering and should be in keeping with the mood and preferences of both you and your Valentine.
There is nothing like music to set the mood for a romantic evening. The correct choice of music would make your Valentine feel cherished and special. If it's your first date with that special someone, you would probably want to avoid the classic love songs as you do not want to seem overpowering in your approach.
The music should be in the background playing at a volume that is non-interfering yet audible. The songs or instrumental music should be mid-tempo, slow and soothing but not so much that they appear a drag. With everything planned for an evening of love and romance, the wrong music can spoil the mood and the outcome.
These are some of the essentials that will make your Valentine's Day last in your memories forever. Be thoughtful and creative in your approach yet sensitive to your Valentines' desires and you are sure to recreate romance this Valentines Day.
