Fear not—some subtle tweaks to your environment can set the mood for an evening devoted to self-indulgence. Read on for our top tips.
Warm up your lighting scheme.
Everyone knows that low lighting is relaxing, but be sure to consider the color temperature of your lights, not just how bright or dim they are. Warmer hues, whether amber, pink or red, are calming, and will set you up for a good night’s sleep.
Create a scent memory.
Of all the senses, smell is the most closely tied to memory, which makes fragrance a powerful tool for creating a mood. Our top scents for nighttime? Santal Night, Noir and Santal are all rich yet refined, making your home feel like a luxe getaway.
Bring the heat.
Warmth and pleasure go hand in hand, so find a way to incorporate heat into your evening. Take a bath, cozy up in front of the fire—or simply turn up the thermostat a notch or two.
Be intentional with your music.Consider the feel you want for your evening and create a playlist to suit, whether that means acoustic tracks for a mellow night or pop throwbacks that will lift your mood and have you singing along.
