A number of people pass by you each day and you don’t even notice them. But, only sometimes it happens you sense some enchanting scent that stirs your emotions, livens up your whole body and finally – makes you notice that particular person. This ravishing fragrance seduces our senses due to a special factor of attraction which has been proven to function effectively upon the opposite sex.
A woman wearing perfume can truly do wonders when it comes to seducing men since it can help her leave an impression of an exotic and sensual woman.
Perfume can be a real companion in numerous life situations. Scents are everywhere around us. Recalling memories, evoking images and sensations from our subconscious, the ones which even we have thought to be forgotten.
However, many of you will probably be surprised at hearing where does the term “perfume” come from. It is derived from “smoke”, which is a Latin expression “per fumes” that denotes ‘through smoke’. Our ancestors used to light fire in praise of gods thereby producing fragrant clouds of smoke and showing their devotion to gods aside from prayers. All great ancient civilizations used to prepare their own aromatic products by using various fragrant substances which were, in Egypt for instance, considered even more valuable than the gold itself. Still, only certain people had the opportunity to nourish the body with honey, cinnamon, and many other floral fragrances. It was in Egypt that people first started to plant and explore aromatic herbs and as a result created special aromatized oils.
The 17th century saw the bloom of perfume industry, especially in the territory of France where the grandeur of aristocracy revealed itself through the everyday wearing of expensive perfumes that were not only applied to the skin, but on clothes, even furniture or fan brush. It is due to this “custom” that the royal court of the king Louis XV became known as the “perfumed court”.
Many components, as well as the process of perfume manufacturing, are yet unknown. Their creators are artists who keep the trade secrets very well. These magical perfumed drops can influence one’s own perception and reveal a personality of an icon. Scents with notes of jasmine, ylang-ylang, vanilla, amber, patchouli, musk, and sandalwood are particularly seductive.
Jasmine is the perfect scent to indulge yourself after a hard-working day. Ylang ylang will penetrate your subconscious and raise libido. It is a custom in India to cover the bed with flowers which says enough about its power.
Vanilla scent has a calming effect and restores good mood.
Amber scent is known as a powerful aphrodisiac while patchouli is popular for its long-term magical effect as sensuality booster.
Musk simply said, will positively impact your private life.
Sandalwood scent stimulates creativity and sandalwood essential oil is also endowed with aphrodisiac properties, a scientifically proven fact.
Trust me, without a perfume, you are not fully dressed. The heart is more likely to thrill because of some fragrance than a work of art. It has really become a part of our own spiritual identity and it best describes the spirit of a person who wears it.
In conclusion, remember the words of a famous fashion fragrance, Coco Chanel, who once said – “A woman asked me where should one use perfume and I answered – wherever one wants to be kissed”.
