This article will get into details of scents, attraction through smell, and eight secret scents to attract men and keep them wanting more.
Scent and Attraction
An aphrodisiac is a substance that increases sexual desire. Some foods and drinks are labeled as Aphrodisiac, but scents shouldn’t be left out of this category because of its magical contribution to increase sexual desires. Scents have the power to make people more sensitive to stimuli around them and increase blood flow to sexual organs also.
The relation between scent and attraction is undeniable, a powerful one because of the connection between fragrances and emotions. You must have experienced how sure scents can take you down to the memory lane and refresh an experience you had in the past just because you might’ve smelled that scent when you were living that memory. You may be attracted to a person just because they are wearing a scent that reminds you of a happy memory and even other reasons you’re unable to identify. It is also scientifically proven that scent can stimulate sexual desires. The following are some scents that you may want to try out to spice up your date night!
8 Aphrodisiac Scent That Should Be Part Of Your Perfume
1. Pumpkin Pie

Other than that, when pumpkin pie scent is mixed with the smell of doughnuts, the blood flow is increased by 31.5%. Maybe we’re onto something here with the food theory! The scientists speculate that men may be reacting to the scents of cinnamon or Vanilla in Pumpkin pie – both of which are known scent to spice up the romance in the air.
As mentioned above, even though the combination of lavender and pumpkin pie scents give results, lavender alone is powerful enough to get things going. The delicate flowery scents are not only known to arouse men and women, but it also has a soothing effect that is a delightful way to set the mood. Lavender is known as a love aid… but why?

Christine Nagel, an infamous perfumer, known for producing Armani Privé, Narciso Rodriguez, and Jo Malone London fragrances have described the scent of Vanilla as:

Sense of Smell Institute’s Director of Scientific Affairs – Craig Warren, also agreed that Vanilla is the winning scent and he went on to explain and said
“Vanilla produces a feeling of happiness universally around the world. Of all the materials that go in fragrances, Vanilla is the most liked globally.”
