Facts About Perfumes and The One that Men Can Not Resist

One of the most interesting and not commonly studied beauty tricks is the use of perfume. Did you know women have a stronger sense of smell than men? Did you know that the use of perfume dates back to Egyptian times, and many historical figures were downright obsessed with it? Thousands of years ago, two of the most famous and beautiful Egyptian queens, Nefertiti and Cleopatra, were using perfume. And, you may want to know, what is the best scent to use to attract men? Read on, and I will answer these questions.

Few realize how early the use of perfume had started. Nefertiti predated Cleopatra. But Queens, Egyptians, and women were not the only ones using perfume. One famous ruler, Akbar the Great, in fact, had an entire department of perfumery, making him more fascinated with perfume than most women that use it in modern times. If you had not already guessed it, he was our clearly obsessed reference.

Perhaps the nastiest perfume invented was Habanita, a smell that was based on cigarettes. Most smokers use perfumes to get the aroma of cigarettes off of their clothing nowadays, and as you imagined, it was introduced in 1921. There is probably a reason it is no longer on the market today!

While the history is fascinating, what is even more fascinating is getting beauty tips about how to shop for perfume, and what that most sensual aroma might be, correct? One thing to avoid—if you are out shopping for perfume, trying more than three scents in a row will throw off your ability to correctly smell your perfume. One thing that can reset your sense of smell is using coffee beans, or having a good old-fashioned cup of Joe in your hands to smell in between testing. And remember, different scents can smell differently on different people because everybody has his or her natural scent.

And the last point here, probably the one everybody wants to know: what is the best scent to use to attract men? It’s Jasmine. It possesses a very sensual aroma that is almost drug-like. Its sexual floral aroma comes from the ingredients within the plant, which include indoles and para-cresol. Breaking these two things down, they do not sound all that sexy and exotic. But, remember human beings are animals, and the result of sexual attraction is very primal. Feces as a scent is present in indoles, as well as the smell of decaying animals. Para-cresol, on the other hand, is present in horse sweat. Both of these factors make Jasmine highly intense for males because it hearkens back to our most carnal instincts. Perhaps not as beautiful as the flower sounds? But I can promise it is incredibly efficient. Many famous perfumes embrace the scent, and many famous people wear it.

When you break Jasmine down, it might sound about as non-tantalizing as Habanita, the cigarette inspired perfume, but do not let that breakdown fool you. If you are going on a first date, Jasmine it up, apparently considering you are excited about your date.

  1. Well you are ahead of the curb here–I thought the fact was amazing, plus I found the history a bit fascinating (and shockingly repulsing). I have to say it is always fun to take a topic I think is a totally plain “blah” everyday concept and find I am really entertained by the research. Thanks for the post!

  2. Haha Jasmine it will be then !!! I loved this mix of modern and old concepts, highly enjoyable read. How on earth did a professional writer and blogger ever stumble across my humble blog and paid it so much attention!! I am honoured, puzzled and intrigued but thank you for the find and the support. I will enjoy following your blog and i mean that sincrely. (I only follow when I genuinely want to read). If you ever fancy a real challenge come to Tanzania and help open the minds of the youngsters here, imagination is not a concept that poverty encourages however it is a delight when the lightbulb turns on and one of the kids starts to escape into their story.
