Ten Fragrant Notes That Have Aphrodisiac Effects - HATE ME LOVE ME®

The most beautiful accessory for a hot date night? A seductive perfume, of course! Because it's not just the body's scent that makes us irresistible - smell on the skin can also have such a pleasing effect. Provided it contains suitable fragrances. Here you can find out what they are!

What are aphrodisiacs?
They have been used for thousands of years to boost the libido: so-called aphrodisiacs. These are natural stimulants that stimulate the senses and are intended to increase sexual desire. The name, by the way, comes from Greek mythology and is derived from the goddess of love, Aphrodite. She is said to have known about the eroticizing effect of certain herbs and plants.

Not only is the scent of jasmine spicy and subtle, but it skillfully balances the other notes with which it blends in a fragrance composition. Many women prefer this aphrodisiac as it provides irresistible beauty and intense attraction.

When it comes to love, romance, or increased sexual interest, the influence that the scent of rose can exert cannot be underestimated at all. Robust, velvety, feminine: rose is the classic among perfume notes and enchants the senses simultaneously. The reason for this is the contained fragrance molecule indole, which transforms the flowery chords into an aphrodisiac. Science proves the seductive effect: a study shows that the scent of rose oil has a relaxing effect on both women and men and releases inhibitions. Optimal, therefore, for a loose, hot night under the covers.

Ylang-Ylang is considered one of the most potent aphrodisiacs and is often combined with rose, bergamot, and jasmine. It is interesting to note that in Asia, flowers of Ylang-Yang are thrown on the bride and groom's bed. 

Although the scent of lavender is quite subtle, it is characterized by a stimulating effect that leaves an unforgettable impression. 

If we are talking about aphrodisiacs, then we do not have to disregard vanilla. Actually, in the past, vanilla was even used to treat male impotence. One of the factors for its essential popularity even in the perfumery industry is its sweet and delightful aroma.

Cinnamon is one of the most widely used spices globally and is also respected as an aphrodisiac. Since ancient times, it is known that hardly anyone can resist the combination of cinnamon, aloe, and myrrh. Moreover, modern studies confirm that cinnamon awakens sexual appetite and sexual power. 

Neroli is an oil extracted from orange tree flowers. Thanks to its aphrodisiac properties, the scent is extremely invigorating and represents one of the most common fragrances in perfumery. Since it also stimulates blood circulation and offers deep relaxation, neroli is also used in aromatherapy.

The deep woody scent of vetiver is also considered an aphrodisiac. An uplifting, healing characterizes it, and calming effect and is often blended with sage, sandalwood, rose, lavender and ylang-ylang.

Sandalwood is said to be the cheapest wood in the whole world. Its oil has been used since time immemorial to produce perfumes and other scented products, especially when it comes to men's fragrances. 

The latest fragrance we want to present in this list is that of cedar. Since ancient times, the oil from cedar wood has been used to create perfumes, especially when it comes to men's fragrance products.
