Even if you don’t have a significant other to share a candlelit dinner with, you always have a special Valentine, and that is YOU. There is nothing better to celebrate your inner goddess than good old self-indulgence. But instead of a box of chocolates, we’re going to suggest you regale your senses with these heart melting creams and lotions, which are sure to make you look and feel loved, either on Valentine’s day or any other special occasion. Most of these incorporate musk, which is one of the most sensual scents, but they all combine it with different base notes, to create a different experience.
