5 Packing Romance Enhancers

by Lori Seto

What's more conducive to amour than the lush colors, aromas, and tastes of an exotic destination? Try slipping the following merry makers into your suitcase! Here are our top picks for enhancing your honeymoon escape.

Groove Tunes

What music makes your body move and your inhibitions melt? If your hotel has an in-room CD player, bring a few CDs from home to score your seduction. Good picks include Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Sade, and Roxy Music.


Slip on something a little risque for your exotic lovemaking location. Better yet, wear it under your dinner dress and give him a little preview during dinner of what's on your dessert menu!

Aromatherapy Candles

Nothing transforms a hotel room into a love den better than the sensual flicker and warm glow of candles. For instant ambience, throw a couple of votives or travel candles (safely ensconced in a lidded holder) in your bag. (Don't forget the matches!)

Bubble Bath

Rub a dub dub, two naked newlyweds in a tub! Share your bath with Mr. Bubble and a bottle of bubbly for a frothy frolic. (Note: Jacuzzis require about half the amount of bubble bath you'd add to a normal bathtub.)

Massage Lotion

The perfect chaser to a warm bubble bath? A leisurely massage. Pack a travel-size bottle of fragrant massage potion and apply liberally. Sensual oils and aromas (for massage lotions and candles) include Patchouli, Rosewood, Sandalwood, and Ylang Ylang.
