Why it’s hot: The olfactory sense is a key player in the biology of arousal, since intrinsically, people believe you are as you smell. “If you smell bad, women aren’t going to be turned on by you,” says neurologist Alan Hirsch, MD, director of the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago.
How to activate it: Beyond you not stinking up the room, there’s scientific research to suggest that certain odors arouse women more than others. Hirsch says a combination of licorice and cucumber is the number one scent to turn a woman on. And if that’s not easy to conger up, experiment with essential oils. “Patchouli and ginger increase sexual energy, and ylang ylang is said to increase sexual interest,” says Fulbright.
