How You Smell Influences How You Feel

Smell influences how you feel


Scent is an evocative sense. Scientists have known for years what you smell influences how you feel. This is because your olfactory bulb, located at the front of your brain, processes scents and then sends information out to your limbic system -- including the areas of your brain that influence memory and emotion. So, it's not at all odd that certain smells and even tastes may bring to mind wonderful memories and feelings of joy and satisfaction. After all, this is why many women wear scented perfumes and men wear aftershave and cologne. The scents are pleasing, and those who wear them may associate them with good memories of things that have happened in the past.

Oh, That Smell

Plus, when you smell good, you feel good. And everyone enjoys the feeling of confidence that comes when you smell amazing. Scent is sexy. And if you doubt it, just think about your significant other and how they smell. Whether you realize it or not, their scent may have been one of the first things that made them attractive to you, along with their beautiful smile and healthy sense of humor. In fact, you may feel your inner engine begin to rev just thinking about that smell you associate with someone you love.

What Are the Sexiest Scents?

There's little doubt some scents just lend themselves to sexuality. Even science agrees. If you're curious about which scents are the ones most likely to get you in the mood, we have the 411:

  • Rose
  • Citrus
  • Mint
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate

Scents that are fruity or floral or cozy are the ones most likely to enhance your private encounters. And coupled with taste, they're most likely to evoke sensations that are simply out of this world. So, the next time you want to elevate your level of intimacy, consider tossing scent and taste into the equation, and see what happens.
