Fragrance can elevate mood and ambiance in an instant... deeply sensual, soothing and invigorating... individually or all at once.
At STORIES, we see Valentines as the perfect opportunity to indulge in a intimate self care ritual - as well as expressing our love for others.
Whether shared or solo, here's how our scented scenario would look...
Light a few candles
Candlelight is one of the most powerful ways to instantly transform the atmosphere of a room - adding an air of intimacy, decadence and pure relaxation. Add fragrance to the mix to create a haven for the senses. For this reason, I'm thrilled that our new, limited edition Bougie Parfumée Scented Candles launched just in time for Valentines so that they too can become part of your love story!
Enhance the ambience further by dotting your candle votives around the room - by the bed and dressing table - or bathside. These glimmering pockets of light will enhance the atmosphere and invite you to enjoy a whaft of their individual notes as you move around.
Run a Steamy Bath
Did you know that STORIES Parfums Hand & Body Wash can also be used in your bath? It creates the silkiest bubbles that glisten in the candlelight - interlaced with that dreamy aroma...
Designed to gently cleanse while hydrating and caring for your skin, Aloe Vera and Provitamin B5 help boost hydration and improve your skin's elasticity while you soak.
Before you wrap up in warm fluffy towels, cocoon your skin in lotion while it's still damp. This helps to lock in moisture and allows the nourishing ingredients to hydrate your skin more deeply.
Simply applying fragranced lotion produces sensations that help us connect with the present moment, helping us relax and soothing our nervous system.
We made a conscious decision to pour skincare expertise and the finest botanical ingredients into our body care collection. Each product is packed with nutritious ingredients and a touch of delicate fragrance, to leave your skin glowing and smelling amazing.
Our Hand & Body Lotion is a luxurious cocktail of botanical goodness, made with ingredients that deliver a nutrient-rich body treatment. Shea butter and vitamin A work alongside cocoa butter and sweet almond oil to rehydrate the skin. Antioxidant-rich marula oil and argan kernal oil leave your body feeling soft and moisturised, while fighting free radicals.
I absolutely believe that skin care is a form of self care... the very reason I introduced my body collection.
The Grande Finalé
Complete your ritual with a spritz of Eau de Parfum. Be creative and spray on pulse points, behind your knees and in your hair for a final flourish that will scent your every move.
Layering perfume over lotion allows it to interact with the natural oils on your warm skin and locks in the fragrance for longer. The scent will continue to develop over a number of hours, gradually adapting from the first burst of top notes to reveal the heart notes and ultimately the base.

Pausing to breathe in the fragrances that surround us can be helpful to centre ourselves in the moment. A little self love each day (not just on Valentines) can go a long way to transforming our skin and instilling a deeper sense of wellbeing.
Happy Valentines Day, with love from the STORIES team to you.
