What makes us get in the mood? We are asked quite often which of our fragrances would be most effective as an aphrodisiac, and are a pheromone precursor? Great question, because our sense of smell is the sense that is most closely related to our limbic system, which controls our emotions and libido. First, we must understand what a pheromone is. A pheromone is a secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same species. Pheromones are chemicals capable of acting like hormones outside the body and are often found in scents.
Increase libido, and we increase happiness. Increase happiness, and we increase libido. Win-win!
MGM Signature’s Volupta is the most effective aphrodisiac for eliciting happy pheromones and testosterone because it has a powerful Benzoin base. Benzoin is a resin extracted from trees in tropical regions, and has proven to be a very powerful aphrodisiac when experienced through the sense of smell.
Other fragrances on our list that are effective aphrodisiacs are the following:
Mandalay Bay’s Coconut Spice, because of its unique combination of clove, cinnamon, and vanilla, paired with the coconut. All of these ingredients are known to increase libido.
Monte Carlo’s Pomegranate & Sage, because of its unique combination of fruit nectars and woody blends that include peach, sage, and musk. This is also a great fragrance for a homey Christmas holiday-feel year-round..
Silverton’s Hot Apple Pie, because of its elements’ ability to increase appetite in general. The pheromone elements here are nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and butter.
Whatever your choice is for attractive fragrances, that get you in the mood, there is definitely something in scents that makes us like or not like. Read more here
