Love is in the air which means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach but, if you really want to make his heart go pitter patter, then you’ll want to appeal to his sense of smell. Our ability to smell is one of our most prized senses and strongest as the nose can detect hundreds of substances. It goes without saying that our ability to smell plays a big part in the perfumes we buy as well as attracting the opposite sex. We’re all animals in the concrete jungle and this Valentine’s Day you’ll be the predator and he’ll be the prey with these ultra-sexy fragrances that he won’t be able to resist.
If you’re not familiar with Chanel No. 5 then you must be hiding under a rock. The No.5 perfume by the illustrious brand is certainly one of the best fragrances out there today. This perfume will have you smelling like a fresh bed of roses. Every Valentine’s staple flower is included in the No. 5 formula including rose, lily of the valley and iris. The sexiest thing about this fragrance is the fact that it ‘smells like a woman’ and if that isn’t proof enough, the sex symbol herself, Marilyn Monroe was an avid wearer of the Parisian scent.
Shalimar by Guerlain
