Valentine’s Day – how did it come about?

There are different stories about the origin of the custom of lovers giving each other gifts on 14 February.

One legend states that the tradition of gifts and surprises on Valentine’s Day can be traced back to Bishop Valentine von Terni. In the third century, he married young lovers in defiance of the emperor’s orders in the Italian city of the same name, and was beheaded as a result on 14 February. According to folklore, the Christian martyr is said to have gifted the couples flowers from his own garden on the occasion of their nuptials, and all the couples he married are said to have had good fortune.

However, this account is rejected by historians. All of them attribute Valentine’s Day to hedonist, pre-Christian customs.

“The Parliament of Fowls”, a fable by the English writer Geoffrey Chaucer, led to the further spread of Valentine’s Day,

These verses from the 14th century describe the complications and perplexities involved in looking for a partner in the form of a fable about animals. At that time, people also believed the mating season of birds began in February, so this was used as an opportunity to honour love in February. The Valentine’s Day custom was celebrated in England from the 15th century onwards, and couples began to give each other Valentine’s Day gifts in the form of small poems or tokens on 14 February. .

Finally, English emigrants brought the custom to America, from where it later spread to further parts of the world.

However you decide – by giving your beloved a fragrance on Valentine's Day, you will be gifting them something beautiful and fragrant as an expression of your special bond.
