5 of the best shaving scents to attract!

Shaving scents to attract!

Daily use of pleasant smelling shaving soap, cream and aftershave improves the mood of a gentleman, thus reducing mood disturbances such as tension, depression & anger. If you smell good, you are immediately more desirable to the opposite (or same) sex! 

Not only can the right smell instantly attract, it’s also going to be the thing she or he remembers about you in the long term. But what are the best aftershave scents to use in your traditional wet shaving routine?

1. Vanilla

Vanilla is a sweet welcoming scent, it’s odour is said to increase sexual stimulation in both sexes. While it may strike you as womanly, there is a good chance your grandfather had it in shaving kit! You may want to find a scent with muskier, manlier aromas mixed in.

2. Lime

Now we agents might be partial to a lime in our G&T but this deceptively simple scent will cut through the smell of the bar or restaurant right to the nose in a good way! Lime was traditionally added to a lot of men's aftershaves for a lighter, summery scent. 

The uplifting scent of lime can help alleviate stress, anxiety and indecision - a great scent to use if you are heading out on a first date, to calm those nerves! 

Taylor of Old Bond Street have nailed this in their Victorian Lime After Shave - an invigorating citrus fragrance to stimulate the senses. Lime based with citrus notes, a floral heart and mossy undertones.

3. Leather

Leather is the uber masculine essential scent for attracting the opposite sex. It evokes all kinds of feelings & thoughts, from American Cowboy to the notorious Fifty Shades, Mr Grey. 

Fine American Blend EDT | Agent Shave

Fine American Blend EDT embodies just this! The scent is inspired by the famous Rive Gauche Pour Homme by Yves Saint Laurent and is a firm favourite with warm cream, tonic and leather tones. 

4. Musk

While scientists still argue whether sex pheromones actually exist, many believe that the smell of musk closely resembles that of testosterone, which may act as a pheromone in humans. Also, women’s sensitivity to musk is apparently 1,000 times greater than men’s so any sexual power that musk may boast will definitely be working in your favour.
