Valentine’s Day history is shrouded with mystery. One of the theories involves a Roman emperor who banned marriage as he believed it had a negative effect on his soldiers. A priest named Valentine found this unfair, so began to carry out marriages in secret. When the emperor found out, Valentine was jailed and sentenced to death. Before his death (on the 14th February) he’d fallen in love with the jailer’s daughter and left her a message “from your Valentine”.
Why do we all love the smell just after a downpour, of freshly cut grass and clean laundry? It’s because subconsciously, fragrance evokes feelings and memories.
