Every year when Valentine’s Day comes around our thoughts naturally turn to love and romance. Along with gifts of roses, wine, and romantic music, nothing is more seductive than the soft glow of flickering candlelight. Why not use the romantic allure of the those little flames to ignite the fires of amour in your loved one this year.
There is nothing like candlelight to set the scene for romance. Like any other aphrodisiac, scented candles can fuel passion in more than one way. Exotic scents can stimulate the senses and inspire fantasies of romantic encounters in mysterious places. Dim candlelight causes the pupils of the eyes to dilate, replicating the all-important signal that someone finds you attractive. Although dilated pupils are more biological than romantic, it is easy to see why candles have become so firmly linked with feelings of attraction and love.
How to Use a Cocktail Candle to Win Your Love
Humans are super-sensitive to smells and react to certain fragrances which is why scents can make candlelight even more seductive. A cocktail scented candle is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift that will appeal to your loved one’s senses but you can also use these candles to create a setting that will declare your romantic intentions without having to say a word.
What Makes Candle Light So Romantic?
• It’s all in the eyes! When a person finds someone he or she is attracted to, their pupils dilate as a subconscious signal that they fancy you as a partner. Dim lighting causes the same effect so dim the lights and light a candle on Valentine’s Day to create an intimate atmosphere.
• Candlelight doesn’t travel far so when you share candlelit space with your loved one you create your own intimate little illusion within the small pool of light cast by the flame of the candle. That is why a candlelit dinner is the ultimate in a romantic night out.
• The gentle glow from a candle is flattering and reassuring. No-one likes to be exposed to the glare of bright lights so candlelight has the added benefit of shutting out all the unromantic trappings and making us feel beautiful and special.
• With a cocktail scented candle, you can add a little spice to the occasion. It is a decidedly grown-up fragrance that evokes memories of good times, especially for someone who enjoys a drink.
