Fragrant Love – The power of Attraction


You are walking down the street and a woman or a man with a great whiff of aroma passes you by, you cannot help but turn your head as the strong blast of his/her scent drives you mad. There is something powerful about the perfume that it allures you to feel some genuine biological attraction deep in the pit of your stomach. So the next time you come across the same person, your brain automatically stimulates you in response to your memories as smell is directly linked to emotions and feelings. How you smell seals half the deal for the opposite sex.

Hence, whether you are a man or a woman, the best way to attract love is to create an aura and mystery around yourself. There is nothing as attractive and exciting as a charming, mysterious and joyous person. Aromas of course play a major role in inducing the right frame of mind as they always create an aura around you. This trick has been used since ancient times.

History has it that though Egyptian Queen Cleopatra was not a very good looking woman, yet she had kings swooning over her as aroma oils always created an aura of beauty around her. She was a seductive woman who knew how to use sensuous and alluring incenses to attract men. She effectively used roses to get her lovers go weak in their knees for her.

There is an interesting story I want to share with you about her. Cleopatra presented herself to Caesar, rolled in a carpet and it is rumoured that Cleopatra first made love to Caesar on a carpet buried under 1 inch of rose petals.

Even when she set sail to meet her fated lover Mark Antony, she drenched her sails in rosewater. The fragrance of her roses reached Mark Antony even before she arrived. As she made the final leg of her journey up the river Cygnus, she travelled in a magnificent barge filled with flowers scented with exotic perfumes, while she reclined on a deck surrounded by her servants and trappings of gold. Antony enjoyed women and once he saw her, he fell under her spell.

You too can customise your own signature fragrance blend. Choose three essential oils, which you love, the most. Mix 1 drop each in 2 tablespoons of carrier oil. Let it stand for 2 days, and then use in your bath oil. This will create a subtle fragrance around you, giving you your own signature aroma.

Perfect essential oils for women are :

  • Jasmine
  • Neroli
  • Rose
  • Geranium,
  • Ylang ylang
  • Patchouli
  • Sandalwood

Whereas, perfect picks for men are:

  • Patchouli
  • Sandalwood
  • Orange
  • Musk
  • Ylang ylang

Spicy aromas of cinnamon, orange, lemon and vanilla also attract both men and women to each other.

There is a song in your heart, a smile on your lips and you just know that something good is coming your way. So, go ahead and be the Cleopatra to your Mark. Cheerz!
