The Magical Scent That Makes You Appear Younger!

Do you remember when as girls we began to experiment and fall in love with fruit- flavoured and scented lip glosses? When we started buying our own coconut or berry scented shampoos and hair products? Began enveloping ourselves in strawberry, or apple scented body sprays? Cherry, cucumber or kiwi moisturizer?

One visit to The Body Shop and you can see how young girls begin to fall in love with these fruity goodies around the same time as they become interested in, and interesting to boys.

Could this be the reason a LOT of men love fruity smells? Maybe it reminds them of the days when their olfactory (and other senses) were beginning to stir in response to girls. A new, exciting, blissfully simple and fun time of our lives. A time and feeling we would all love to recapture. Who wouldn’t want to feel youthful and exciting again? Well, sadly,  no scent can actually make this happen, but wouldn’t it be amazing to be privy to a secret scent like an enchanting elixir that makes men think you are younger?

Enter the almighty grapefruit!

Dr Alan Hirsch, a psychiatrist at the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago  found that, when asked to sniff pink grapefruit on middle-aged women, more than 50 men judged the women to be six years younger than their actual age!

Dr Hirsch suggests the smell produces feel-good endorphins and pheromones which increase arousal and therefore endear the women to them. Interestingly the ‘youth effect’ was greater on men who wore a surgical mask infused with the scent while just looking a photos of women. The effect also worked on men who don’t actually like the smell of grapefruit!

Who wants to get their hands on some of this super scent?

Try Jo Malone Grapefruit Cologne. This is like an expensive aromatherapy massage oil. It is light, uplifting and energizing and is said to help control the appetite! This scent is unisex and there are hints of masculine woodiness so be aware if this is not your thing.
