4 Scents to Spice Up Your Relationship

Spicing up the romance in your relationship never hurt anyone, right? Flirt with the idea of adding some scents into the scene.  Using fragrances to stimulate intimacy is a great way to turn up the heat.

Plus, your partner will appreciate the romantic gesture. Certain smells can serve as a vehicle to elicit your sex drive, intimate moments of connection, and powerful loving emotions.

Whether you want to seduce your partner with aphrodisiac elixirs or use the scents as a way to connect is up to you! Your partner will thank you profusely for adding these scents into your love life. 

1. Sandalwood 

This warm, rich scent will arouse you and your partner. If you're looking for a way to increase eroticism and desire, light up a sandalwood incense cone!

You may not guess that this woody fragrance would have sexual undertones, but it's known for being a powerful aphrodisiac. It will get your heart pounding, your hands sweating, and will certainly boost your libido.  

Don't be afraid to take your sandalwood incense burner to the bedroom!

2. Ocean

You might wonder how the smell of an ocean will help you out in the romance department. Let me offer you some insight...Remember your last romantic get-away? If there was a beach involved, you may want to take your ocean incense with you to the bedroom.

Smell and memory are interwoven; you cannot disentangle certain scents from the emotions that they elicit. When you smell a sea-breeze fragrance you may remember that relaxing vacation with the love of your life.

The scent takes you right back to a romantic moonlit stroll on the beach when you were holding hands with your partner and breathing in the salty ocean air. If you can't get to the beach with your lover, light some ocean incense instead.

You'll both feel like you're on a romantic get-away! 

3. Rose

Rose is the symbol of love and romance. If you want to dazzle your partner with romantic gestures you cannot go wrong with roses. In Greek Mythology, roses were created by Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love.

You know intimacy is coming in your direction when you see rose petals dotting your bed sheets or a vase with a single, red rose as your dining room centerpiece. What about the smell of rose? If you haven't gotten into rose as a fragrance then you're missing out. It's sort of like enjoying a piece of bread without butter...it's incomplete!

Make sure to incorporate the smell or rose into your next romantic gesture. When you breathe in the sweet scent of rose, your partner will be certain that love is in the air...

4. Lavandar

You might be wondering, "How will this scent add fire and spice to my relationship? Isn't it a relaxing scent?" Hear me out for a second... Lavender can diffuse tension in a relationship.

Not all tension is sexual tension; sometimes anger and irritation can pull you two apart. Instead of pitting yourself against each other after a marital spat or disagreement, light up your lavender incense. It will induce a calm and relaxing state of mind.

I'm not going to claim that it will make all of your problems disappear, but it may ease your stress a bit and invite closeness and warmth. 


When you allow these romantic scents to waft into your bedroom you'll see the romance in your relationship unfold. Fragrance is a great way to spice up your love life! 

You'll be dripping in sexual charisma when you breathe in sandalwood, as it's a natural aphrodisiac.  Lavender can help ease your stress and bring you closer to your partner. Ocean can bring allow you to take a stroll down memory lane- i.e., your last romantic beach getaway with your lover. When you add the smell of rose to the scene, romance will bud in no time. 

I hope you're able to spice up your love life with these romantic scents!
