...and to give you a leg up when it comes to picking up the gals at your local bar or club, here are the FIVE best selling colognes that will guarantee to keep a woman's attention long after the drink you bought her has been consumed!!! I was happy to see that my brand is in the Top 5, but I'm not going to mention which one it is because I'm getting older and don't need the competition!!!
When it comes to the rules of attraction, women follow their noses. Ladies at peak fertility are more attracted to men with high levels of testosterone, according to a new study in Hormones and Behavior. And sure, you can eat your way to increased T levels, but changing up your scent can also increase your appeal.
To find out what it means to smell manly, we asked Alan R. Hirsch, director of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, to identity the scents that attract her—and keep her wanting more. Here are five to try today.
Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme
This musky scent features notes of mandarin and mint. “It’s the scent of a gentleman who is contemplative and thoughtful,” Hirsch says. ($62; chanel.com)
Lacoste L.12.12. Green
Citrus scents—like this one from Lacoste with grapefruit notes—are effective for men who thrive on adrenaline and want to be more awake and alert. “These are the guys who need that stimulation,” Hirsch says. Because yes, she’ll want your full attention. ($65; lacoste.com)
Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gió Essenza
A fresh scent with hints of jasmine and basil will have you smelling clean—as if you just stepped out of the shower, ready to take on the day. Women are attracted to smells that are fresh and clean, Hirsch says. ($79; giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com)
Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme
This spicy and woody scent has notes of tarragon, which evokes the feeling of being outdoors. After all, every woman—even Adrianne Palicki—wants a mountain man (sans year-round flannel and scratchy beard). ($64; isseymiyakeparfums.com)
Although Bulgari Man has light top notes of lotus, violet leaf and white pear, it’s anything but feminine. Its base notes of tonka bean and musk make it perfect for the masculine, yet “sensation-seeking” guy, Hirsch says. ($59; bulgari.com)
