Love is in the air — can you smell it? The power of scent delivers messages directly to your brain in a way that none of the other senses can. Smell is also the sense associated with Muladhara, the root or base chakra. So if you really want to make an impact this Valentine’s Day, your best bet is to do with an amazing fragrance.
From limited-edition candles to sensual scents, the MECCA Edit is full of fragrances that wear longer than any bunch of roses. So forget flowers and chocolates this Valentine’s and say I love you with a new signature scent.
