Who is behind this plague of passion?

Orc Lovers Heart Valentines

The goblin Cupid Kwee Q. Peddlefeet.

"Love is in the Air" is a seasonal event that takes place around Valentine's Day (around first week of February and lasts about 2 weeks). The first "Love is in the Air" event occurred in 2006, and was repeated each year since. 2010 saw this event significantly changed. See Love is in the Air 2009 for details of the previous version of this event. In 2012, as one of their most romantic gestures (/sarcasm), Blizzard announced some specific customer support policies for this event.

From Battle.net:[1]

Love and adoration are in the air in the major cities of Azeroth… and in celebration of the occasion, you’re invited to share candy, perfume, and gifts with guards, townsfolk, and other players for special rewards.
However, a strange "love sickness" seems to cloud the hearts of many of Azeroth’s people. Is this widespread incident simply an outbreak of amore? Or will you and your fellow brave adventurers uncover a dark secret behind this plague of passion?

From the old official site:[2]

Something is in the air in the major cities of Azeroth. Some call it love, and some just call it friendship and admiration. Whichever it is, many guards and townsfolks now spend their days giving and receiving tokens and gifts to other amorous citizens.
The more skeptical, however, are suspicious of the strange "love sickness" clouding the hearts of so many. Will this widespread occurrence be simply taken as a recent outbreak of amore? Or will our brave adventurers find a sinister plot behind the source of this plague of passion? Only time will tell...

Dates

It appears that Blizzard moves the dates of this event to happen around the real-life Valentine's Day on which this event is based. However, the date ranges sometimes vary whereas Valentine's Day is almost always on February 14th. When the event was introduced it lasted for 6 days, but was increased to roughly 2 weeks in 2010.

Event Boss

For 2010, the Love is in the Air event now also features an event boss: Apothecary Hummel

As of 2011, to queue for the dungeon, you can use dungeon finder or talk to the Steamwheedle Shyster in Stormwind City (outside Trade District Auction House) or in Orgrimmar (near Grommash Hold). You will receive a Heart-Shaped Box for completing the daily holiday boss.

The optional quest Neutral 15 [78-80] Man on the Inside leads you to Shadowfang Keep where the Crown Chemical Company set up a base of operations. There you can find a goblin agent who gives you Neutral 15 [75-80D Daily] You've Been Served. When turning that quest in at Apothecary Hummel, he and his two companions will aggro. They are all level 82 (elite) and have about 260k health. When the proper strategy is followed, these should not pose a problem for a well-geared 5-man group.

Bouquet of Roses

During the 2009 event of "Love is in the Air", the [Bouquet of Ebon Roses] was introduced for those characters with access to Northrend.

The [Bouquet of Ebon Roses] showers the character with black rose petals and drops from:

in both Normal and Heroic modes.

Due to an issue not allowing the Ebon Roses to get the Fistful of Love achievement as intended, there was a hotfix that replaced them with the [Bouquet of Red Roses].[3]

The meta-achievement for Love is in the Air is Achievement worldevent valentine [Fool For Love]. It requires the completion of most of the achievements listed in the table below.

Commercial

In 2007, Blizzard created a Burning Crusade commercial that featured the "Love is in the Air" event as well as the new jewelcrafting profession. From the official website, the ad was described as follows:[4]

What do you get the blood elf who has everything? This Valentine's Day, make it an epic jewel! Yes, the industrial empires of Azeroth aren't about to let anyone escape the relentless marketing campai- er, bloom of true love associated with this time of year! Take a look at this new commercial but be warned that you may be struck by a sudden impulse to spend all the gold you've saved for your epic mount.
