How to Use Perfume to Get What You Want
A subtle change in scent can help you influence people. Here, the fragrances to help you win in every situation
Why: Lately, it seems like there are a million reasons not to shower. Washing your hair and skin too often causes dryness and damage. Showering less is better for the environment. Plus, bedhead is so in. But, while we support your right to shower as little as you choose, no one wants to come across as disheveled and unclean. Besides a great dry shampoo, you can add a lemon-scented perfume to your I-promise-I-shower-regularly ploy. A study at Le Moyne College asked undergraduates to sniff a vial of lemon scent near a gender-neutral silhouette. They were asked to form an impression of the silhouette, and the participants perceived the lemon-smelling silhouettes as clean, feminine and pleasant. Good information to know for the next time you decide to skip the suds.
