Clarified Butter

For Valentines Day, I am going to make a recipe that calls for clarified butter. It's a process that I'll need to tackle ahead of time, but my question to throw out is, outside of raising the smoke point of the butter, does it actually change the flavor of the dish? Is it an uneccessary step?

Thoughts?
