Pheromones are the unique scent each of us gives off, and are said to play a huge role in attracting romantic partners.
Now, one woman has gone to the extremes to put this to the test.
Writer, Allison Ramirez, is using her own vaginal secretions as an aphrodisiac perfume to attract men.
After carrying out some research into how the process worked, Ramirez was surprised to learn just how easy it is. “You basically just have to stick a finger down there and then use said finger to dab your “natural perfume” on your pulse points,” she said.
According to history books, this method of seduction was used by courtesans of medieval Europe, who spritzed their vaginal secretions behind their ears and necks and on their chests.
But Allison says she felt this was ‘a bit uncivilized’ and enlisted the help of a perfume maker to create her own personalized scent.
Ramirez, a social media manager tested the product on a string of dates and reported being “pleasantly surprised” to find it worked. One date let to a kiss in a photo booth and another led to a text to meet up again.
The Los Angeles based journalist carried out the experiment as part of a feature for Cosmopolitan. To create the “perfume”, she consulted with Saskia Wilson-Brown, founder and director of the Institute for Art and Olfaction, who runs perfume making workshops.
Wilson-Brown suggested that essential oils such as rose, cinnamon, aniseed, and benzoin have aphrodisiac-like qualities and might yield the results that she was looking for.
Saskia also informed her that a study carried out by the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago found that scents such as licorice, pumpkin pie, doughnuts, and lavender have been found to increase blood flow to a man’s erection.
Allison settled on creating a sweet-smelling scent of her vagina secretions mixed with cedar, rose, and civette.
Allison then tested out her new perfume on a couple dates, armed with her “secret potion.”
On the first night, she met up with a new suitor and found herself in a photobooth liplock at the end of the night.
All was fine until things took a turn. “Then all of a sudden, teeth!” she wrote. “It was funny, but it also kind of hurt.”
She says he replied: “I can’t help it. It’s that scent you have.”
Allison reported that while the rest of the night was a blur, his comment and actions indicated that the perfume was a success.
Days later Allison wore her scent for a date with a friend of a friend. She revealed he didn’t say or do anything during the date to indicate the perfume had worked, but he did text her later for a second date.
