Scent is a powerful factor when it comes to attraction. Because women have a keener sense of smell than men, the way a man smells can have a great impact on how attractive a woman finds him. Here are the five masculine scents that can drive a woman wild.
Spicy notes in a fragrance, such as cinnamon, ginger, frankincense, and myrrh, can warm up even the coldest of nights. The scents evoke memories of baking – especially holiday baking – and warm memories for many women, which can be a powerful turn on. In fact, cinnamon, has long been thought to generate sexual arousal in both men and women.
Clean and invigorating, the tangy scent of citrus, such as lemon, lime, orange, lemongrass, and red grapefruit gives men that fresh-out-of-the-shower scent, a smell that many women find appealing. Just don’t overdo it, or you might smell like the produce department!
The clean smell of fresh laundry, soap, or shampoo can have a powerful impact on women who enjoy the fresh smell. Clean scents can be energizing and uplifting, giving women a sense of calm, which can then lead to an increase in sexual desire and attraction.
A staple for most men’s colognes, musk is a rich, sexy, and sensual scent that drives many women wild. The scent is masculine in every sense, and is one that many women choose for their men to wear, as well as a popular choice for men themselves. When musk oil was first discovered, it was said to have unusual powers of sexual attraction. Today’s musk colognes are based on this oil, which was originally derived from musk deer.
Earthy scents like sandalwood, patchouli, and rosewood are strong scents commonly associated with masculinity. The earthy aroma can warm the body and increase feelings of well-being, thereby increasing a woman’s desire for a sexual encounter. Sandalwood, in fact, resembles andosterone, which is a chemical that is secreted from the underarms of human males. Scientific studies have concluded that women subconsciously link the scent of sandalwood with andosterone, thus elevating attraction and sexual desire to men wearing that scent.
There are many ways to attract women; scent can be one of the most powerful due to women’s heightened sense of smell. Consider these five sexy scents the next time you’re shopping for a new fragrance.
