“Mmmmmmmmmmm…Yum!” Can you smell that lingering scent?? That is the smell of that gorgeous 6’2 male who just casually glided by your table and had you stop talking mid sentence. The interesting fact is that you already spotted him about 30 minutes earlier when him and a group of his friends walked into the spot. His initial looks didn’t immediately “woo” you but when you sniffed out a hint of his cologne he magically became your Idris Elba for about 3-5 minutes. Now, If his steez is up to par when he tries to talk to you, he may even have a chance to get your number. Oh the power of smelling delicious! Even though men are a bit more visual and holds more weight to how a young lady looks, it still does not mean the sensation of wanting someone who smells addicting is ignored. So yes ladies just like when that cologne hits us same thing for men and their daydream of their perfect woman.
Check out these 3 ways to use power of your fragrance…
Overkill.com – I know we have all experienced either waiting in the elevator or popping into Strabucks. For some reason we always tend to run into the person who decided the top of their fragrance bottle was taking to slow to come out and just decided to pour the entire amount on themselves. But the worst part is that they felt like it was a good idea that even people three blocks down can smell them. Ok, so you get my point. More is not always better. Just because the fragrance smells great you kill all purpose of attracting people when you bathe in it. You must know when to stop spraying. Perfume does not have the same effect as it used to when we were pre-teens. You all know what we did, take the body splash spray a big misty circle in front of us and jump in and turn around in it until we felt as if it covered every inch of us.
Wrong Place, Wrong Time, Wrong scent? — You’re casually strolling down aisle three of the grocery searching for a tasty snack to match your bottle of wine for a quiet chill night with the girls. You have Robin Thicke’s Love After War on repeat and letting his voice take slow control of your mid-afternoon groove. Just as you reach to pick up the can of pitless olive your ‘Dream World’ is intruded by a strong scent. Thinking someone must have come from an event to pick up some items from the store you give that person a pass. But as you turn and the person literally looks as if they rolled out of bed and instead of reaching for the soap they went to the cologne! Now it’s not a terrible scent but just a little to strong for an afternoon grocery run. Like everything else, there is a certain time and place for certain perfumes and colognes too. Choose wisely.
Not a Cover Up — I understand we are all adults but I still believe that some people still have not grasp this concept. Fragrance is not a quick step to bathing. I’ve seen men coming back from the gym and instead of reaching for the shower towel to change their clothes they reach for their cologne bottle instead. As much as I want to say it’s only men who practice this ritual I know some women who have partaken in this activity as well.
