Fall is just around the corner and if you’re like most people, you’re really looking forward to it, right? Summer’s great, but there’s just something special about the shorter days, longer nights, and chill in the air. So in honor of fall we’re going to talk about some foolproof, fall-themed ways to set the stage for romance.

Light it up

Candles are always a good idea, but they are perfect for the cooler months of the year. Not only do they provide romantic lighting for a special evening, they can also offer some mood-setting aromatherapy. Fall scents can really rev up the engines, especially sandalwood, cinnamon, amber, and rose. Then of course there are fun but non-traditional fall scents that are sure to make anyone smile, like pumpkin spice, chai, peppermint bark, and bonfire.

Incense anyone?

Candles give you light and scent, but incense provides a special type of atmosphere that goes beyond the scents they offer. Some nice incense burning in a room instantly makes it feel just a bit more cozy or exotic, depending on the aroma. Here you can get creative, but some sexy favorites are Nap Champa, Dragon’s Blood (trust us, this tree resin makes some amazing incense), musk, and Frankincense.

Old movies

Okay, hear us out on this one! When the days get shorter, there’s more time to cuddle up on the couch for a movie. There is something not only retro, but romantic, about watching some classic movies while bundled up with your sweetie. A few titles to consider are The Way We Were, The Graduate, and An Affair to Remember.

Sexy Jammies

The colder nights may tempt you to crawl into the thickest, warmest flannel pajamas you can find, but wait! Don’t sacrifice romance for warmth – there’s a middle ground! Get yourself a sexy pair of pajamas, something silk or satin. Make sure it’s comfortable but not shapeless. You can also enjoy some lingerie, just have yourself a plush robe handy so you can stay sexy, yet cozy.

You made it through the heat of summer, now it’s time to enjoy crackling fires, hot cocoa, and long nights with your loved one. If you’re looking for more ideas, of course, you can always stop by and we’ll be happy to help you find new ways to heat things up!
