V-day is just around the corner, and while the burning candles and rose petals scattered on silk sheets might put you in the mood for love, there’s nothing like a sensual, alluring fragrance to really set the tone. Here, we round up five alluring scents to wear out, whether your status is complicated, committed, or happily single.
While rose can easily come off as matronly, it can actually be refreshing and even more romantic than you think. It’s one of the most versatile scents that can be easily layered with citrusy notes like lemon and bergamot to give it a younger and lighter feel.
