Smelling Suave: Seven Scents to Make Women Swoon
Vanilla is a very powerful aroma that appeals to both sexes. It is a pleasant fragrance that brings to mind feelings of safety and security, which will make you seem like a very attractive option for women who smell you wearing it. Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille, for example, combines a soft vanilla with an opulent tobacco aroma for a wonderfully masculine mixture of sweet and bitter.
A fragrance that has a hint of smoke is always a great option. Women often rate it as one of the most attractive fragrances. This is probably again an issue of safety. The smell of smoke brings up those primal feelings of safety that smoke from a campfire signaled to our ancestors. Try Fireside Intense by Sonoma Scent Studio, a scent that features smoke, leather, and a hint of agarwood.
If you want to project an aura of masculinity, then you should ask for an after shave with some musk during your next trip to The Art of Shaving. Anytime you are looking to signal your power to the ladies, you just have to splash on some musky cologne to let them see you as a strong male presence.
Although most men think that floral scents are only for women, they should think more deeply about it. Consider how much most women love the scent of flowers. There is something very sensuous about a man who is sporting a fragrance that features floral notes. Make sure not to overdo it though. You want the floral notes not to be completely overpowering.
Citrus fragrances are very popular for men these days. Men and women both love the smell of fruity aromas. Especially when it is warm outside, a citrus aroma will make you very attractive to women. A good option is Acqua di Parma’s Colonia, thanks to orange tones balanced with lavender, rosemary, and damask rose.
Mint is not only a great aroma for your mouth. Your whole body will be attractive when it is splashed with a minty fragrance. Mint has its most power when you wear it when it is cooler outside. It will be especially effective around the holidays. Roadster by Cartier is an excellent mint option, with its combination of bergamot, vanilla, patchouli, and more.
Similar to floral scents, most men wouldn’t assume that women would enjoy a chocolate cologne. There could be nothing farther from the truth, if the cologne is balanced properly. Ralph Lauren’s Red #2, for example, cuts chocolate with musk to create a swirling, drawing concoction that may well drive her mad. A chocolate scent is wonderful for late fall and early winter, so use it and cuddle next to a fireplace.
These seven fragrances all have the power to make women swoon. The key to smelling great is to change up your scents to suit the occasion. When you always have a large arsenal of aromas from which to choose, you will never have a problem smelling great when you go out.
