Let’s be frank, you want to smell good so you can attract women? Let’s face it we love to attract women and the sense of smell if the most powerful of the five senses. The power of smell, or rather the sense of smell has multiple psychological implications. In lam-in terms,
1. Choose the right scent + Attract women
When you understand how smell interacts with our brains — more specifically, how specific notes in a cologne/fragrance oil can influence us — you can find the right scent for the right situation and reap some of the hidden benefits of wearing cologne/fragrance oils. Here’s four more benefits, just incase that 2 for 1 special isn’t enough motivation for you to step your fragrance game up.
2. Increased Focus
Citrusy scents such as lemon have the ability to make you more focused. The bright quality of a citrus scent sends signals to the brain that help you focus more on what’s going on around you. Additionally, the smell of eucalyptus relieves mental exhaustion, while the smell of mint has been known to be beneficial to memory retention. With this in mind, try Mediterraneo by Carthusia when you need laser focus. Opening with an invigorating dose of lemon, as well as eucalyptus and mint, Mediterraneo is the right scent to wear when you want to stay alert and on your toes.
3. Be Happy
If you’re looking to add a spring in your step and a smile on your face while dancing around like Pharrell, you’ll want to wear something with bergamot, cinnamon, and vanilla. The smell of bergamot works with the brain to elevate your mood. Cinnamon helps to remove negative thoughts from your mind, clearing the way for happiness to shine through, and vanilla has a direct impact on cheering a person up as well. Le Male by Jean-Paul Gaultier blends the three to perfection, creating the ultimate happy scent. Not only will it lift your own spirits, but it will lift those of the people around you as well.
4. Reduce Stress and Relax
The smell of lavender eases tension and reduces anxiety, so if you’re having trouble getting through the workweek due to mounting stress, try a cologne with a powerful lavender note to psychologically trigger the relaxation you need. Moreover, chamomile is a scent used regularly to help people suffering from insomnia. With that said, Fougere Royale by Houbigant is bound to relax even the most stressed out man. With notes of lavender and chamomile, Fougere Royale is smoothly blended to include a sweet, leathery note of clary sage.
5. Get A Jolt
When you want to get a spike in your energy without any caffeine, try something that smells like coffee. The effect that the smell of coffee has on people is an excellent example of classical conditioning at work — in psychology, classical conditioning is when a new behavior is learned based on the process of association. So when you walk into Starbucks in the morning to buy your daily jolt of liquid energy, you’re actually benefiting from the smell of the beans as well. It’s drinking the coffee that gives you energy, but the scent is so closely associated with the energy you get from drinking coffee that the smell alone can give you an extra jolt. For a powerful morning coffee smell, try New Haarlem by Bond No. 9. The coffee notes are at the heart of New Haarlem, and with its expertly blended mix of bergamot, vanilla, amber, and tonka bean, this scent will give you the energy you need to get through the day.
When taking into consideration the significant impact that smell has on how the brain works — it’s our most powerful sense, after all — there is no denying that cologne has more benefits than simply making you smell good. Knowing these hidden benefits of cologne will allow you to prepare for any challenges the day may have in store — all you have to do is choose the right cologne for how you want to feel.
