Now that Christmas is behind us and spring is in the air, it may seem that the season for the giving and receiving of gifts is over for another year. But for those in romantic relationships, this couldn’t be further from the truth, as Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Although the story of Saint Valentine himself has various versions, it was in the 14th Century that legendary scribe and pioneer of English literature Geoffrey Chaucer began to cement the link between the day and the concept of courtly love. By the 18th century, it had evolved into what we now think of it as; a day when lovers would express their fondness to each other with the exchanging of flowers and gifts.
If any concept can be said to be primarily based on one’s feelings, it has to be romance. We all love to create a “romantic atmosphere” for these special occasions, and in creating an atmosphere sight, sound, and most importantly scent all have important roles to play. And what could be more romantic both in sight and in scent than burning candles? The glow of a candle has long been associated with romance, and nothing can enhance one’s mood more effectively than a relevant scent.
At Eve Victoria, we pride ourselves on having a scent for every mood or occasion, and of course Valentine’s Day is no different. Why not try our Apple Blossom and Pomegranate scented candles? Whether you intend it as a gift for your loved one or as a scene-setting mood enhancer to accompany an evening of romance, this is a blend that is perfect for both the season and the occasion.
The summery tones of apple blossom can provide comfort in what can be one of the most wintry, while pomegranate has long been associated with romance, the pomegranate tree having once been believed to have been planted by Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. Or for something a little more exotic, try Rose and Sandalwood; the sandalwood provides a touch of Eastern promise, while we’re sure we don’t need to explain the romantic connotations of the rose!
Whichever fragrance you choose, you can be assured of a beautifully enhanced atmosphere in your home to help you both celebrate this most romantic of days.
