The Psychology of Perfume

Blog · Your Self

Lady love,

I’ve decided to take a break from my normal shtick and want to talk about a very important part of living more and weighing less…


Perfume flirts, magnetizes and hypnotizes.  Perfume transforms any outfit into haute couture. Perfume upgrades our life.  Perfume makes us feel beautiful. Tweet it.

A lot of scents give me a headache, but if you can find the right fit, your life will change.

But there’s one mistake a lot of women make when it comes to perfume, they aren’t wearing what men find attractive.

Now, of course I want you to feel beautiful for YOU, but let’s be honest with each other, once in awhile we want to intoxicate someone else.

I used to only wear rose essential oil.  I thought I smelled like the sexiest woman alive.  Jonathan seemed relatively apathetic to my scent, I just thought he wasn’t a perfume guy.

Then a girlfriend told me that men are turned on by smoke, woods and anything that smells like adventure.  Not rose gardens and tea parties.

I went out a bought Tam Dao by Diptyque, and when I showed up on a date with it on, Jonathan stopped in his tracks and yelled, “WHAT ARE YOU WEARING!?”  Now that was the reaction I was looking for.

So now when I want to feel beautiful for me, I wear rose.

When I want Jonathan’s toes to curl, I wear Tam Dao.

I’d love to know what your scents are so we can share inspiration.  Comment below to clue us in.

So this week’s invitation is simple, wear perfume.  And remember that even the simplest acts, can turn your whole world upside down or rightside up!
