Scents that arouse a woman or a man—Is this even a thing?
Just the other day we stumbled across an interesting finding: “Scents that arouse a woman” is a term that more than 700 different Google users search every month. And this got us thinking—Here at Scentbird HQ, we know all about the powers of fragrance. It can transport you back to a place and a time, it can pamper your senses, make you feel good about yourself, but did we miss out on the fact that a fragrance has the power to make you more attractive in the eyes of someone else?
Knowing that desire and sexual attraction start in the brain and that the olfactory bulb that detects scents is closely tied to our limbic system, a particular area of the brain that controls our emotions, memories, moods, and feelings, we can certainly say that these 700 Google users might be onto something.
Yes, and we have science to back this claim. According to the leading researcher Dr. Winnifred Cutler, who identified the existence of human pheromones: “Essential oils and blends can create a lovely fragrance that enhances attraction and allure”. For detailed research, read this study in Psychology Today here.
It’s a rather lengthy read, but for the lovers of CliffsNotes, this is what you need to know: While a perfume cannot instigate a pheromonal communication, meaning it cannot make people throw themselves at you in a mating game, it can certainly enhance your appeal. And we have the best news: Here’s a detailed overview of all the scents that might just do that.
