OK, it is obvious that when you apply your favorite scent in the morning before you go to work you will have the benefit of smelling better than you did without it. But there are more benefits to wearing perfume than just smelling better; if this comes as a shock to you then I am pleased to be the one to enlighten you as to what the other benefits are. Curious? Then read on and find even more reasons to spray on those sweet-smelling fragrances everyday.
If you have ever found yourself in a situation where you were surrounded by people and you didn’t think you were smelling very good (imagine being at work in an important meeting with no deodorant on), then you can have some idea of how your personal smell can affect your confidence level. In the scenario just mentioned, you probably would not be feeling very confident and would most likely shy away from speaking out or doing anything to bring more attention to yourself.
Wearing a great fragrance with a scent that you love will have the opposite effect of boosting your confidence. Now imagine that you are in that same meeting with your deodorant and a splash of Chanel No. 5 in place – it is much more likely in this new scenario that you will have the confidence to speak up in the meeting, and you may be surprised to find that you are able to come up with creative solutions that your team coworkers will be able to appreciate.
For many women attracting positive attention (especially that of the opposite sex) is the primary reason for wearing perfume in the first place. These women will wear fragrances that are more sensual and seductive, like Sexy Amber by Michael Kors. Perfumes like these are rich in pheromones; when you wear them they have the effect of making you more attractive to members of the opposite sex.
It is very common for someone to be attracted to a person purely because of the way they smell. Perfumes can sometimes act as aphrodisiacs, making you very attractive on a hormonal level. If you want to be more attractive and get more attention, wearing a sexy fragrance, preferably one with pheromones, is a great way to achieve this goal.
I can personally attest to this benefit of using perfumes – they have the ability to instantly transport you back in time to a specific memory. Classique by Jean Paul Gaultier, for example, brings me right back to high school on the day I first had the pleasure of smelling its luxurious scent.
Perfumes can also remind us of specific people, and this is usually the case when someone has a signature scent. Even if they are not the one wearing it at the time, you won’t be able to help thinking about them when you smell the fragrance that they normally wear. I would love to have a trademark, signature scent, but there are too many that I love and I cannot seem to settle on just one. Many women, though, are always wearing their favorite fragrance; this will more often than not trigger memories and thoughts of them for persons who associate them with a particular scent.
Perfumes ought to be pleasant smelling, and in this regard they can greatly enhance your mood. Many have therapeutic benefits and can be quite relaxing – this is especially true of the floral and fruity fragrances. They can be used as a form of aromatherapy and help to calm both your mind and your body.
