If you’re reading this, then you are no doubt trying to make someone feel extra special with this year’s Valentine’s Day date. You’re on a mission to make your special person feel on top of the world. Or you’re on a mission to stay out of trouble for forgetting Valentine’s Day! Either way, we’ve got a Valentine’s Day date blueprint that is bound to get your partner bragging about you to all their friends.
Most perfume lovers already know that the olfactory sense (your sense of smell) has an extremely strong connection to your memory. Use this to your advantage and create a romantic Valentine’s Day Date taking a trip down memory lane.
Make a list of your memories
Make a list of the most significant and special memories you’ve shared together. There are the obvious ones, like your first date and your first kiss. Try to get creative and remember less obvious ones – it’ll be more romantic.
Find a scent
Once you have your list, it’s time to assign each memory a scent. If your first date was at the movie theatre, you could assign it the smell of fresh hot popcorn. Did your partner taste like bubble-gum the first time you kissed? Assign your first kiss the scent of gum. Get as creative as possible!
Capture the scent for your Valentine’s day date
Now capture the scents! Collect a sample of each scent in a box or container. It’s best if the container is airtight to hold the scent. If you assigned your first date with popcorn, put popcorn in a container. If it was bubble gum, put bubble-gum in a container. Eventually you’ll have multiple containers with a random collection of items and scents inside them, ready for your Valentine’s Day date.
The cherry on top
Purchase a bottle of perfume for your partner – we’ll explain why you need this soon!
We recommend these two newly launched perfumes:
Maverick for men.
It’s a scent similar to Bad Boy by Carolina Herrera.
Maverick is a decadent fragrance for the strong and modern man. The bergamot, pepper and cedarwood notes are aromatic and spicy.
For women we recommend Elegance.
It’s a scent similar to Idôle by Lancome for Woman.
Elegance is a perfectly balanced scent for the perfectly gorgeous woman. It combines modern notes like pear with classic notes like rose.
Once you have your perfume, put it in a presentable box. If you ordered your perfume through the Eden Perfumes online store, it’ll already be in one!
The Valentine’s Day date game plan
For your Valentine’s Day date, set up a comfortable, private space where you’ll be comfortable for a long time. Share the boxed scents with your partner, one at a time. With each box, take the time to explain the scent and memory. Open the box and breath in the scents to allow them to jog your memory of those special occasions. Reminisce about that day together – how you each felt and what each of you were thinking. Don’t rush this process. A trip down memory lane is a stroll not a sprint.
Finally, give your partner their perfume and tell them that this scent doesn’t have a memory yet, but you think it’s what your future smells like.
