“Long after one has forgotten what a woman wore, the memory of her perfume lingers.” ~Christian Dior
Why are perfumes sexy? “The nose may really be a sexual organ - it may be more closely related to sexual response than vision,” suggests American researcher Michael Shipley. Clearly, the sheer confidence and heightened sensuality produced by the right fragrance make us more receptive to sexual feelings and more attractive to others. “When a woman is in the arms of a man she loves, in the dark of the night, the perfume she is wearing plays a very important role,” says Jean-Paul Guerlain.
