Smell is one of the lover's most important senses, and this interesting book shows how to use perfumes and aromatic oils to engender and enhance a romantic mood and subsequent loveplay. It includes an erotic history of smell; unusual tips for scenting rooms, gift boxes, and personal items; instructions in the art of massage; ways to achieve sexual fulfillment; and a number of recipes for scented lotions. One small warning: although many of the recipes belong to traditional aromatherapy--meant to soothe the skin, relieve stress, and refresh the mind--a few make claims for positive medical effects, such as those intended to cure cystitis or genital lesions. To the author's credit, she does state that aromatic remedies should not replace a visit to the doctor but can be used in conjunction with professional medical care.
