Connections Between Scent and Beauty

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so the saying goes. Science has shown that beauty and an attractive appearance may not only be seen with the eyes, but indicated by brain waves perceived through scent. Lionesse has found some interesting scientific data that proves, says science, that fragrance can enhance your appearance. Read on to learn more about this interesting breakthrough.

How Your Brain ‘Sees’ Fragrance
Facial appearance, or attractiveness, and scent have been shown to come together to merge into one emotion – attraction, so says Dr. Janina Seubert, PhD , who also happens to be a cognitive neuroscientist. She states that this shows that physical attraction to someone or something is indicative of an emotional process, whereas perceiving someone by age, race, gender, and otherwise is indicative of a rationally based thought process. Certain scents, science shows, can be more appealing than others. Perfumes can tend to have a make or break impact on the way someone perceives your looks, so it’s important to choose wisely for each particular occasion. It’s also important to check for a few key scents which are detailed below.

Most Appealing Scents in Terms of Beauty
Some of the most appealing additions or high notes within a fragrance, whether body spray, perfume, or lotion are as follows:

  • Rose
  • Grapefruit
  • Bergamot
  • Lime
  • Citrus
  • Freesia
  • Mimosa

Any combination or addition of these types of fragrance would be more than likely enough to catch attention and draw the eye. In addition, there are some scents that don’t fare nearly as well, and no matter how attractive a person’s face may appear, these particular scents can throw the entire appearance or look of the person off if they are used:

  • Patchouli
  • Musk Scents

So, Lionesse believes this begs the question: What scents contain the most sought after ingredients? We wouldn’t leave you hanging, and so we’ve done research of our own to give you a few perfume or body spray scent ideas for the next time you are perfume shopping.
