You can be a scent connoisseur till the cows come home, proclaiming your dedication to the art, to the thrill of truffling out a rare vintage bottle, to the challenge of successfully wearing that Comme des Garçons smoked-wellington boot-and-pikake/ozone limited edition. But no matter how snobbish...errm, discerning you are, you'll still bloom with shy delight when a hotsy-totsy someone compliments you on great you smell.
I find the most successful open-for-business fragrances are ones that enhance or blend with your own natural scent. Like you can't help it, you just happen to smell irresistible.
On a recent stop by the studios of San Diego Fox 5 morning news, I talked to anchor Shally Zomorodi about three different men's “attraction scents”:
Bare skin on the beach. This gentle blend of transparent jasmine and clean, soapy musk makes your skin smell “naturally” excellent.
Patchouli, chocolate, myrrh, musk, labdanum and leather. The smell of things you either want to lie on or lick.
Huge cult favorite. A simple cedarwood/sandalwood aromachemical that makes everyone around you stop what they're doing and go “Who smells so good?”
Not to get all Basenotes on y'all, but I'm interested to hear which “attraction scents” have been serving up results for you....
