Lockdown Valentines don’t need to be as depressing as you might think. In fact it may become the most sensual that you had ever experienced. Every year parents look for an escape from their daily life and spend this special day away. This year we have a chance to get back to basics and appreciate the intimate moments in our home with your other half. But how to create those special moments? For me scents are the perfect way to make the most unforgettable experience. They are able to reach our senses, and make Valentines Day the most sensual olfactory experience.
