1. Tidy Up
They say cleanliness is next to godliness, and who doesn't want to be a Sex God? Keep the bedroom free of clutter and mess. There's nothing sexy about navigating around piles of dirty laundry and too much bric-a-brac is distracting for both you and your partner.
Aside from de-cluttering, take some time to clean, dust and hoover. Tidy away any laundry (clean or otherwise) and dust every surface. Believe us, it makes a huge difference.
Mood lighting is so important when it comes to create a romantic ambience in your bedroom. Soft, seductive lighting instantly makes us feel more relaxed and comfortable, so switch off any harsh overhead lights.
Candles are a wonderful alternative to electronic lighting in the boudoir - they create a gentle glow that's really flattering when you undress, and they smell good to boot. Opt for a sexy massage candle to add an extra opportunity for play - the wax melts down to a skin-safe massage oil. Try the Fifty Shades of Grey Massage Me Massage Candle for a Christian Grey-inspired scent enriched with coconut and jojoba.
It's undeniable that smell is linked with sexual desire, and there are certain heady aromas that help set the right ambience for lovemaking. Floral scents like jasmine have long been considered an aphrodisiac, while spicy or musky undertones add a sophisticated feel.
Why not create a signature scent for your love nest? Smell is so associated with memory that whenever you or your partner get a whiff of sultry jasmine or jojoba, you get to re-live some of the passion.
The bed should be the focal point of any bedroom. It's recommended that you spend as much as you can afford on your bedding, as soft and silky sheets feel quite a bit nicer against the skin than scratchy cheap cotton. Pillows, blankets and throws really add a tactile dimension to the boudoir, so don't be afraid to accessorize your bed!
Finally, for the finishing touch, why not add some Fabric Rose Petals? This is a great way of drawing your lover's eye to the bed as soon as they walk in the room.
It's a good idea to keep some romantic music playing in the background to ease any uncomfortable silences. Choose something calming and melodic that's easy to listen to. Make sure your playlist is long enough - you definitely don't want to be fumbling around for a new CD mid-session!
