Throughout history, fragrances have always been an inseparable element in love and romance. Whether it is Cleopatra dousing herself and her surroundings in rose essence to seduce Mark Antony or eastern maharajahs sniffing on a bunch of jasmine as watch their courtesans dance, fragrances have had a large part to play in igniting passions and sensuality.The use of essential oils in lovemaking is nothing new, but today, we know that it is much more than a tradition.

Different scents seemed to produce varied levels of arousal in men and women, with Lavender and pumpkin pie ranking the highest!
