New Study: Single Women Ditch the Perfume!

I always thought it was wise not to wear perfume because so many people are sensitive to it or may not be attracted to the scent you pick.  However, there is a study out from the psychology department at  Florida State University that suggests going au natural just may be the answer to attracting a mate.

They found that men were attracted to the natural smell of a woman on an unconscious level. When they smelled t-shirts that had been worn by women ovulating their testosterone levels increased, which can be an indication of sexual arousal.

Personally, I can’t stand the smell of colognes and fragranced deodorants on men. I love the natural smell of a clean man. I think it would be interesting to see if a similar effect could be had if the sexes were reversed. Perhaps the researchers at FSU are working on that.

Here’s the link to the original study by Saul L. Miller and Jon K. Maner from FSU…
