Perfume is in a category of its own! Whether you purchase perfume for yourself or for others, perfume and cologne make a great gift for everyone. Splurge on yourself; you’re worth it!

When someone passes you on the street who is adorned in delicious smelling perfume or cologne, you notice them. Their mere wonderful scent can entice your senses and make you want to follow them. You will definitely inhale to get another “delicious” whiff of that grand smell! The perfume and cologne industry is a billion dollar business and rightfully so. A fantastic aroma is revered and adored.


Have you ever wondered why so many of us never leave the house without spraying on our favorite perfume or dabbing our neck with our preferred cologne? Blame it on your pheromones! A pheromone is a secreted or excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same species. Pheromones are chemicals capable of acting like hormones outside your body that impacts the behavior of other people. Yes, you truly can credit your love of perfumes and colognes to biology.

Perfumes and colognes contain mixtures of essential oils and aromatic compounds that are used to give your body an agreeable scent. They generally come in liquid format and are used to add an attractive fragrance to your body. Most perfumes are sprayed lightly on the neck, behind the ears and on your wrists.


Many fashion designers depend on their designer scents to bring in major sales for their fashion and beauty brands. Versace, Calvin Klein, L’Oreal, Estee Lauder, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, and Yves St. Laurent are just a few worldwide brands that manufacture perfumes and colognes. Celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian have also launched successful perfume lines.

Since our pheromones are known to function in mate selection, it’s no wonder we often dab on glorious perfumes or splash on cologne before going on a first date. Pleasing aromas attract us, much like we notice yummy food smells when we enter our favorite restaurant. Enticing and appetizing! Sweet smelling perfumes and colognes can elevate your mood and improve your attitude. 

If you’re not quite sure what to get for the guy or gal who has everything, a new spectacular scented perfume or cologne is always a winning way to go!
