Wanting to find attractive scents for a first date? It may have more impact on how well it goes than you think! Research shows that scent can play a crucial role in attracting someone and it can even improve overall intimacy. After all, it is one of our strongest senses. 

Some specific body odors are actually related to sexual attraction between humans, who are able to deliberately choose scents that might attract romantic partners.

Not only does it help to boost desirability levels, but it can boost confidence and self-esteem as well.2 While you might assume it is only for women, the scent has been known to attract both men and women alike. It meshes well with just about any skin type and it alone can promote sensations of romance.

Jasmine oil has been known and used for centuries as an oil of attraction. Because it has such a warm aroma to it, it can be described as a sensual oil.
