Step 4: Wine is the drink of love. If you’re sipping solo, or imbibing with a friend, there is something about a glass of wine that adds a level of decadent sophistication to an evening. We couldn’t put ourselves on either side of the red or white battle, so we went with both. Another benefit of wine? It pairs well with our next favorite consumable…Buy on Amazon
Step 5: Chocolate. Rich, indulgent, sweet, one might argue it shares all of the characteristics of a perfect lover. Dark chocolate has been said to be healthy, so indulge to your heart’s content and treat yourself with something your taste buds will treasure.Buy on Amazon
Step 6: You have the scents. You have the sensations. You have the tastes. Now you need the sounds. So what should you put on for this night of enjoyment?
How about a classic: Marvin Gaye’s Midnight Love. It’s an easy go to, and for good reason. The sultry lyrics, his sweet voice, and that rhythm guitar blend together in a funky formula perfect for setting the mood.
Maybe you’re interested in something more modern to set the mood. If that’s the case, John Mayer has the voice of a siren, so put on his album Continuum and get ready to sink into his dulcet tones.
