|The sense of smell is often neglected during lovemaking.
However, to really create the feel of romance, it is important to appeal to all your senses. The best way
to appeal to your sense of smell is to layer subtle fragrances so that no fragrance overpowers the other.
When using these tips, bear in mind that with scent, less is better.
Things You'll Need:
candles (preferably soy)
scented lotions and oils
Take a luxurious bath. Try a salt scrub. The best ones are made from sea salts from the
dead sea because they are very rich in minerals that will leave your skin feeling luxuriously soft. Try scents
that arouse you. An example is "Sensual Amber" which is a scent that acts as an aphrodisiac.
Shave excess body hair from your intimate areas. Scientists believe that pubic hair traps the release of
specific scents your body produces to attract your partner. Shaving releases those scents.
Layer on scents. A scented lotion after your bath, such as "Sensual Amber" will heighten your lover's arousal.
Use a pheromone enhancer. Pheromones are natural chemicals released by the body. They act as your
personal id. Everyone has a unique, natural scent. Pheromone enhancers are perfumes that react to your
own scent and are a great way to allow your lover to distinguish you from other people.
Light candles. Scented soy candles are best because they burn at much lower temperatures than
regular candles, making the wax safe & long lasting.
Add fragrance to your lovemaking area.
The key to arousing your sense of smell is to use subtle fragrance in specific areas.

blue, turning green then brown with age and exposure to light. The odor is sweet, tobacco-like and fruity, apple-like.

Eucalyptus - Of the 300 species of eucalyptus trees in the world, Eucalyptus globulus is the best known. Eucalyptus has long
been used in topical preparations such as liniments and salves. Cineole is the major constituent.

Essential tea tree oil: As the name suggests, this oil is extracted from the tea tree plant. Tea tree essential oils are also

It is used to scent citrus perfumes and colognes, soaps, creams and lotions.

Jasmine Absolute - The fragrance of jasmine is a component in so many perfumes that there is an old saying:
"No perfume is complete without jasmine." Artificial jasmine cannot begin to compete with the full, rich, honey-like
sweetness of true jasmine, despite the efforts of the best perfume chemists in the world. Great expense goes into
producing pure jasmine oil. The flowers must be hand-picked before dawn when the essence is at its peak,
and large quantities are needed to produce small amounts of oil.

Lemon - lemon oil is cold-pressed, a much better oil than distilled. The scent is evocative of the fresh ripe peel.

oil in body care products when going out into the sun as it can cause redness and burning of the skin.

Aromatherapy benefits: balancing, soothing, normalizing, calming, relaxing, healing.
Orange, Mandarin - Although the botanical differences between mandarin and tangerine are slight, the oils
expressed from each differ in aroma and are not considered interchangeable in aromatherapy. The floral,
neroli-like undertones of mandarin are evocative and sensual. Mandarin is used in combination with other
citrus oils in colognes and fantasy-type perfumes. (See Tangerine.)
Aromatherapy benefits: uplifting, cheering, sensual.
Sandalwood - Sandalwood oil has a sweet-woody, warm, balsamic aroma that improves with age. The essential oil
blends wonderfully with most oils, especially rose, lavender, neroli and bergamot. Sandalwood oil is also an excellent
cleansing, astringent addition to massage and facial oils, bath oils, aftershaves, lotions and creams.
Aromatherapy benefits: relaxing, centering, sensual.
Oregano essential oil: The essential oil from oregano is mostly extracted via steam distillation. The oil is light
