Romancing the Audience

I've just returned from an evening of providing environmental fragrancing for a charity benefit. Rewarding and fun!

The theme of the night was romance, and a cadre of muscial artists provided ecstatic arias, rapturous cello, passionate piano and fiery flamenco-influenced guitar. I concocted a sweet and sexy floral blend to compliment pieces by Saint-Saëns, Puccini, Rachmaninoff and Jobim, plus a few romantic French compositions penned by the guitarist. As guests were transported by the music and accompanying chocolate, they were treated to a euphoric mixture of ylang ylang complete, geranium, neroli, petitgrain, black pepper and patchouli.

At the end of the affair, everyone wafted off in a blissed-out state (myself included). Need a little romance in your life? Pick some passionate music, do a little sensual diffusion using the oils above, and create your own intimate concert for two. Don't forget the chocolate!
