Today is February 14th, which can only mean one thing – it’s Valentine’s Day! You’re probably already getting in the mood for love, whether you’ve planned a romantic evening out, a beautiful homecooked meal, or simply put some time aside to snuggle up with your significant other on the sofa. Some couples like to exchange romantic gifts – and while Valentine’s Day is indeed a fantastic time to do it, there’s nothing to say you’re only limited to today! With that in mind, we’d like to take the opportunity to outline the major reasons why luxury scented candles will always make the perfect romantic gifts.

1. They’re High Quality Presents

Whether you’re buying for a man or woman, this is sure to get you relationship points right off the bat. Luxury scented candles are immediately distinguishable from cheaper, throwaway romantic gifts – they’ve obviously not been picked up last minute from a petrol station, for example. A luxury scented candle not only shows that you’ve put some thought into the present, but also ensures that your loved one gets plenty of opportunity to enjoy it. It’s versatile and long-lasting, promising days and even weeks of satisfaction and enjoyment (depending on how often it’s lit, of course!)

2. A Scented Candle Is Personal And Meaningful

At Melt, we understand that everyone has different tastes and preferences – which is part of the reason we take care to stock such a wide range of luxury scented candles. This gives you a far greater choice when deciding which candle best suits the personality or hobbies of your loved one. You might choose to buy one for individual activities – like having a spa bath at home, for example. It could be a candle you know they’ll personally enjoy in a more general sense; lots of our customers love Angel for its relaxing, heavenly scent, which is ideal for taking the edge off after a long hard day at work. Or, you could look to buy a candle you know they’ll like for a particular room in the home, like Saddle for a home study, or Joy for to give the living room a cheerful air of breeziness. And of course, most important of all…

3. A Luxury Scented Candle Is Powerfully Romantic!

A candlelit dinner is a cliché for a reason! We actually went into a bit of the science behind it all in last year’s Valentine’s Day blog, but to save you the trouble of searching back for it, we essentially talked about how we all have an instinctual response to candles to think of them as romantic. Low light causes our pupils to dilate – which is a subconscious signal of attraction – and what’s more, the low light also helps to filter out distractions in our environments, allowing us to focus just on the person in front of us. That’s just one reason why it’s amazing for setting a romantic mood!

And that’s the romantic side of things…if you’re into something a little naughtier, you might want to try something like our Noir luxury scented candle. It’s a sensual, feminine scent that’s perfect for taking into the bedroom, and setting the mood before…well, we’ll leave that part up to you!
