Is This For Real? A Perfume That Attracts The Opposite Sex
February 11, 2013
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and depending on your relationship status, you’re either buying monogrammed lingerie or stocking up on boxed wine. If you’re doing the latter, don’t give up on finding a Valentine just yet– we found a perfume that will literally have men chasing after you.
Escentric Molecules Molecule 01 ($135) is a fragrance that claims to attract the opposite sex. The unisex body mist has one ingredient: a molecule that gives off a light, woodsy scent. The aroma isn’t always noticeable to the wearer, but it is allegedly extremely alluring to those around them. It may seem gimmicky, but combining science and beauty is nothing new (remember Liv Tyler’s Givenchy lipstick that changed colors based on the pH level of your lips?). Similar to Liv’s lipstick, the Escentric perfume mixes with your body’s chemistry, creating a pheromonic effect that triggers a subconscious response in others.
Don’t believe us? According to reviews on the site, women who’ve worn the perfume have had some pretty crazy experiences: One girl got a free cab ride because the taxi driver thought she smelled so good. Another woman had someone follow her off the bus just to find out what she was wearing. You can get Molecule 01 here, and if you’re looking for a similar effect with a more noticeable fragrance, check out its sister scent Escentric Molecules Escentric 01 ($135). Try it out and let us know what you think – just don’t be surprised if random guys start sniffing you.
