Vanilla – sweet and spicy, the scent of vanilla can be almost sickly in heavy doses – but it has been proven to arouse both men and women, which may be why so many candles, soaps, perfumes and body lotions feature this rather soft, pleasant and relaxing smell.
Ginger – not only does it smell delicious, but if eaten this root is reported to boost libido and give you an added burst of energy. Perfect for sultry nights of passion.
Jasmine – love or hate it, this flower has a pungent smell when in full bloom and it tickles our senses and… our loins! A sensuous scent, again often featured in perfumes which gives us a little taste of balmy oriental nights.
Cinnamon – men dribble around women who wear cinnamon scented perfume. It’s heady, spicy scent is a well-know aphrodisiac and if you put some in apple crumble… well, you’ve got your man (and a great tasting crumble!)
Lime – ladies love the zesty, refreshing smell of lime on a man. It’s masculine, fruity and crisp. Is it any wonder aftershaves all over the world feature this little green number?
Almond – women will be putty in your hands, quite literally, if you massage them with sweet almond oil. It’s a sweet, relaxing scent, which drives ladies wild.
Can you think of any more? What drives you wild?
