Look To Your Senses To Set The Mood
(NAPSA) - A surefire way to add a little romance to the menu is to cater to your passion sense. Here are some tips on using all your senses, and your partner's senses as well, to set the mood from Diane Brown, author of "The Seduction Cookbook."
Be heaven scent
Certain smells have been proven to have dizzying effects. You can set the mood just by filling the room with the fragrance of fresh flowers. Shake things up with a light mist of a tantalizing new scent. Try something with a hint of vanilla, sandalwood, musk or jasmine, all known aphrodisiacs.
Spark some passion by lighting candles throughout the room. Candlelight makes everyone look better-your eyes will sparkle and your skin will glow.
Tempt your taste buds
Never underestimate the power of delicious foods and drinks. Try mixing things up this year with Agavero, a distinctive spirit that is hand blended with 100 percent blue agave tequila and the natural essence of the Damiana flower. Damiana, a native plant from the highlands of Mexico, is said to be a powerful aphrodisiac.
Don't neglect the power of hearing. Choose seductive music to create a relaxing atmosphere or produce a delicious tension.
Consider serving finger foods you can feed each other, such as chocolate-covered strawberries. The combination of sweet and sour is mouthwatering, conjuring thoughts of kissing. Or surprise your partner with a massage.
Ignite passion with your partner by serving this seductive cocktail.
