Finding the perfect fragrance for your perfect match

The head may question what the heart wants, but one path to true love is to get that special someone to follow his nose.

Numerous studies have shown that perceptions can be more positive when in the presence of a good smell. That’s why hotels, casinos and retailers often waft subtle fragrances through their establishments.

A woman’s perfume can raise a man’s interest in her and florals, especially, can help trigger fond memories that guarantee yourself a place in his heart.

But different scents will attract different kinds of men, so choose wisely.

Here are a few aimed at fueling romance:

Flora By Gucci

This floral was inspired by princesses past and present. It represents refinement with the power and sensuality associated with a Gucci woman. Its top notes introduce citrus and peony, with a heart of rose and leather notes of the Chinese flower osmanthus, and base notes of patchouli and sandal-wood. Its spicy, warm, leathery scent, with a hint of Asia, will capture the heart of a reflective, intelligent man.

YSL Parisienne

Just like the women of Paris, the free spirit who wears this ultra-feminine fragrance knows how to live and how to love. It combines scents of blackberry and damask rose, with a suggestion of mystery from a hint of sandalwood. It’s a natural, woody scent that will attract a worldly sophisticate.

Valentino Eau De Parfum

This scent conveys the refined elegance and luxury represented by the iconic designer. Its head notes of pomelo, pear blossom and magnolia present fresh, contemporary appeal that combines with heart notes of orange flower, mimosa and violet leaves, and a base of rice vapour, heliotrope and vanilla orchid. The invigorating mix of citrus and florals will keep an enterprising, spontaneous man enthralled.
