Scents That Trigger Arousal
Discover the scents that arouse the opposite sex, those that turn women off and whether you need scents that stimulate or relax your partner.
What do pumpkin pie, roast beef, cinnamon and lavender have in common?
Scientists have determined specific scents that trigger arousal in the opposite sex.
You know how you associate certain smells with specific memories?
That association is called a “smell print.” Like fingerprints, smells are very individual.
Psychiatrist Alan Hirsch from the Smell and Taste Treatment & Research Foundation found that 25% of patients who suffered loss of smell also had sexual dysfunction.
The deep limbic brain entwines our sense of smell and interest in sex and it’s 2 1/2 times larger in men.
Certain scents trigger erection with the combination of lavender and pumpkin pie increasing penile blood flow by 40%.
Men are also aroused by the smell of doughnut combined with either black licorice, lavender or pumpkin pie; orange; cheese pizza, roast beef and cinnamon buns.
For women, baby powder, cucumber, licorice and lavender increase interest but cherries and the smell of barbecue turn women off.
Who would have ever thought taking your date for BBQ is counterproductive to attracting her?
Current research also suggests the scent of musk closely resembles that of testosterone, the hormone that enhances healthy libido in both sexes.
In scent studies at Toho University in Japan, floral and herbal essential oils were found to impact sexual arousal in the nervous system.
But depending on whether you need to stimulate or relax your partner to get them in an amorous mood, you would use different scents.
To stimulate the Sympathetic Nervous System use jasmine, yang-ylang, rose, patchouli, peppermint, clove and bois de rose.
To relax the Parasympathetic Nervous System use sandalwood, marjoram, lemon, chamomile and bergamot.
Many perfumes have these scents in them. You can also mix essential oils into massage oil to stimulate or relax your lover.
Many of these scents are also commonly found in tea such as peppermint and chamomile. Many candles are scented with rose, jasmine, patchouli, sandalwood and bergamot.
