Anti-Aging Perfume

Since ancient times, women have used scents to enhance their seductive charm. Today, modern science draws connections between olfactory stimuli and male perceptions and desires. Dr. Alan Hirsch, of Chicago's Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, has found that certain scents can actually spend years from the age of women in the eyes of men (and nose) of men who see them.

In one study, Hirsch asked male volunteers to estimate the different ages of women when wearing nose masks infused with various scents. "In the presence of a grapefruit pink woman's scent looks six years younger than her real age," Hirsch said. Surprisingly, the woman who inhaled the citrusy aroma was immune to the perceptible power of perception.

 As a dating coach, I stressed the importance of seeing the best, but now also smells the best. Adding grapefruit grapefruit scent - perfume, body wash, lotions, candles - can be an easy and relatively inexpensive way to improve your anti aging arsenal.

For products with strong pink grapefruit notes, I recommend Philosophy's Soulmates, Dolce & Gabbana's Rose The One, Grapefruit Williams-Sonoma Pink Essential Oil Collection, and Happy Clinique perfume.

 If you are not interested in looking younger, what about slim? Hirsch also examined the ability of various scents to make a person feel and thin. She waves a different aroma under the nose of nearly 200 men, asking them to estimate a woman's weight.

 The scent ranges from citrus-fragrant (think Eau de Givenchy or Dior Poison) to the daffodils in the valley (think Cashmere DK mist (or return to childhood: Muguet) to the flower spice (think Michael Kors or Bulgari).

The result: The scent of flowers carries 12 pounds of the weight of the woman in the eyes of male testers! Other great choices for the scent of the slimming flowers include Marc Jacobs, Mania Giorgio Armani and Calvin Klein's Prowess.

 Of course, perfume can not replace diet and exercise in terms of rejuvenation - but after a delicious and indulgent holiday season, we can use all the help we can get, do not you?
