This is the true reason why your fragrance attracts others.

Maison 21G's Love Atelier Workshop

Have you ever been distracted by the scent of someone passing by, that you simply couldn't resist turning around and looking back? Don't worry, you’re not alone… Although fragrance is very subjective, attraction through the sense of scent, runs down to the science of smelling, and more precisely to the magic of human pheromones!

What are pheromones?

Let's look at some science first, shall we? You may have seen the word pheromones circulating: they are a chemical substance produced and released into the environment by an animal, specifically a mammal.

These secreted chemical signals are an evolved form of communication. They are powerfully effective in triggering sexual behaviour between members of the same species, to the extent, that even at a far out distance of several kilometres, a female deer will be attracted to the male deer of the opposite sex, merely for its scent.

Just as we follow the footprints of animals in the theory of evolution, pheromones play an equally important role for humans and puppet the laws of attraction.

Although pheromones are not tangible and cannot be seen, they represent an identity card. A unique DNA, for each individual. These unnoticeable olfactory pheromonal signatures are the so-called ‘chemistry’ between two people. They control whether you’re attracted to or repelled by a potential partner.

For instance, if you fall into the category of a hopeless romantic, believing in ‘love at first sight’, then you would know the feeling is beyond what we see, and more about what you feel. Well this is how pheromones and the power of scent work!

We see it, we smell it, we want it, we got it. If you think you are rational and sensible with your choices, then we have news for you…

Although your mind may be doing the thinking, your body has already made its choice, and once again it relies solely on your uncontrolled preference of scent!

It’s safe to say that pheromones prove the laws of human nature, and purely exemplify our primal, ‘animal’ instincts, truly becoming our sixth sense!

In addition, did you know that you are attracted to people who smell different from you? Nature protects us with this great intuition, causing you to be repelled by those who smell similar to you, and instead let your sixth sense seek out your perfect partner!

Are there pheromones in perfume?

Don't we all want the perfect perfume that will help us smell like a sex god or goddess? Luckily, pheromones are believed to be the closest achieving this, and they’re much closer than you think…

Although the pheromones are substances released naturally, they can be collected and are used in fragrances found on the market today.

Integrating pheromones in perfume date as far back as ancient Egypt. The Egyptians discovered that sweat, specifically that from a strong and healthy man, was filled with aphrodisiac substances. This sweat was collected and stored in jars for the purpose of being mixed into different fragrances. Strange as it may sound, it was considered somewhat effective…

Nevertheless, luckily now, the pheromones found in perfume are mostly extracted from mammals or similarly mimicked by synthetic components; so don't fret, no alpha males are hurt in modern processes! They are infused into the fragrance, and are equally efficient in actively stimulating and promoting the mood, focus, behaviour and most enticingly, boost the sexual appeal of the wearer.

Therefore, with scent playing such a key role in the laws of seduction, it is no wonder why fragrance houses have devoted so much time to the manufacturing of perfume pheromones. Maison 21G has gathered our top 3 sexy perfumes from the market, that are worth the try and that surely contain this secret, magnetic substance!

Irresistible Fragrances

1) Hypnotic Poison by Christian Dior

The hint is in the name… this fragrance WILL hypnotise you! A Dior perfume with a beautiful blend of rich Sambac Jasmine, with hints of liquorice in the heart. With evolving facets of the intense tonka bean and vanilla, the perfume is wrapped with the scent of the forbidden red apple. Tempting enough?

2) Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel

A classic Chanel perfume: sexy, fresh and oriental fragrance that mirrors the seductive and provocative spirit of Coco herself! The notes of pure femininity, rose and jasmine, are wrapped with deep, warm ingredients: vanilla, vetiver and musk, as well as the intense patchouli. Seductive, and charming, the fragrance is rounded off with enticing notes of bergamot and orange.

3) Opium by YSL

A potion that explores luxurious elegance and eroticism; a classic soft and oriental perfume. The enchanting base of myrrh, amber, along with palatable vanilla and fierce patchouli, is complimented with the florals of Sambac Jasmine, as well as the refreshing blend of mandarin and bergamot at the top. Addictive, mischievous and alluring, the scent screams sex!

At Maison 21G, we believe that a key ingredient in feeling confident and sending the correct message to those around you is to find a suitable perfume that will enhance your personal, natural scent. What better way to cater to your preferences, your smell, your mood, and character than by creating your signature fragrance!

A bespoke fragrance will aid you in attracting unique attention, as literally, no one else will have a perfume like yours. Memorable and distinctive, you will for sure be standing out, with no one standing in your way of attracting your prince charming or princess!  

Maison 21G will help you to design your personal scent style. Thus we have gathered a few ingredient recommendations to help you in your initial steps of choosing your fragrance composition.

To create a perfume for women that will enhance your sex appeal, we recommend mixing the captivating Vanilla Venus with any of your favourite florals, such as our Tuberose Tribute fragrance.

These ingredients combined embody a woman’s feminine qualities. Draped in the mouth-watering, sweet, creamy, sensual vanilla, and garlanded with the velvet touch of white floralcy, creates a rather carnal yet elegant perfume. You’ll have everyone falling under your spell…

A highly recommended mix for men would be the heliotropin-packed Terrific Tonka and Ginger Game perfume. Dauntless, bold, fresh, spicy, captivating, with powdery and earthy base notes. A character in itself, brilliant and subversive, smelling undeniably divine on the skin. This combination evokes haute sophistication and naughtiness!
