The scent of love
How to seduce with fragrance? Which perfume will boost your senses? We reveal for you the secrets of the scent of love.
There are many ways to get the attention of the person we like. There are also many ways to keep feelings and passion at a high level in a relationship. One of them is fragrance, which has a very strong influence on our emotions and feelings.
Love at first... scent
Some say there is no love at first sight - instead there is love at first scent. It is believed that not only pheromones, which are volatile chemical substances produced by our body, trigger emotions and specific reactions in others. This is also influenced by the perfume we use. What and how a person smells can determine the first impression, arouse our interest or the opposite. Scents are the invisible bonds that connect us with our other half.
The power of connecting the scent of perfume with our feelings is demonstrated by the fact that when we think of a person we love or have loved, we often immediately recall the scent of their perfume. We may not even remember exactly what someone who aroused emotions in us looked like, but the memory of their scent is still intensive. It is the scent that is most strongly rooted in the long term memory, even for many years. By comparison, visual impressions remain in the memory from few days to few weeks.
