The Top Perfumes That Turn Men On

The Following Fragrances feature Scents That Attract Men.

Smell is a powerful sense! It is the only sense that bypasses the conscious parts of the brain and goes directly to the limbic system, the region responsible for basic memory, motivation and emotion.

In fact, research suggests that both men and women feel more aroused when exposed to comforting and sentimental scents over general “perfumey” fragrances as they appear to be linked to positive memories and emotions. So when picking out your next fragrance, think less about typical florals/chypres/orientals and more about tasty treats and soothing notes.


Are there really perfumes that turn men on?!

Yes, there’s even scientific research to back up scents scientifically proven to turn men on by Dr. Alan R. Hirsch of The Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation.

This research concluded that the scents of Lavender, Licorice and Donuts, Pumpkin Pie (cinnamon), Orange, and even Popcorn lead to increased arousal in men. This makes sense as these scents probably remind men of happy memories, positive emotions and an overlying feeling of comfort.
