Ever wonder what different aromas say or do?


FLORALS. Flowers like rose, lily, tuberose, and gardenia have been associated  with love and femininity for decades. In addition, guys even find floral scents romantic.


ORIENTALS AND MUSKS.  Intense! Sandalwood, amber, and musk stand out as being exotic.  Guys associate these scents with mystery.


CITRUS AND FRUITS.  Fruity fragrances can boost your mood. Most fruity scents are lively and energizing.  Juicy aromas like berry, apple, orange, and peach send out happy, positive vibes, which guys find attractive.


GOURMANDS. These are tasty scents, such as chocolate, cocoa, and crème brûlée, are very comforting, so they connect to a man’s emotional cravings.

Finding the right fragrances can be tricky and challenging. but sometimes before you even open your mouth, your scent speaks for you.

Here are some helpful hints to make the hunt for fragrances easier:

Shop in the morning. Your nose is less tired from sniffing all day and not saturated with smells.

Try to limit spicy food intake the night before. They can make a scent more intense on your skin.

Know your beau. Does he like spicy or citrus? Bring him along so you don’t have to guess what will turn him on.

Free samples. Grab free samples of a perfume and wear it for a few days to see if you really love it.

Pulse Points to Spritz: Behind your ears, the inside of your wrists, the nape of your neck, your belly, between your breasts, and the back of your knees.

I hope now fragrances will never be viewed as an after-thought. Remember, scents smell different on everyone, and only buy a fragrance that you’ve tested on yourself.
