The popularity of sexy and gourmand fragrances has been in a rise for a while. It is mostly a result of researches have been conducted to study the effects of male pheromones and some scents on the sexual attraction of men and women. Well, according to the Smell Report of the SIRC, or Social Issues Research Center, the influence of these smells were exaggerated when widely circulated among the public. However, that does not mean that sexy fragrances are worthless, but they do not work like magic either.
Some smells were found to increase the penile blood flow in men with normal olfactory abilities, including licorice, lavender, vanilla, doughnuts, and pumpkin pie, according to a study conducted by the Smell and Taste Research Foundation in Chicago. However, this is not something exclusive to these odors, and their effect does not solely target the penis. Generally, strong scents increase the blood flow to the extremities, including the penis.
Other scents have an indirect effect; for example, many ladies prefer musky perfumes and consider them quite sexy. However, in their Smell Report, the SIRC also states that women are a lot more sensitive to musk than men. So, the effect of musk is a lot greater on the woman than on her partner. But by boosting the sensual feelings of the female, therefore making her behavior more attractive to the man, the perfume could consequently aid turning the man on.
