Beauty Review: Eau Flirt - Smell Sexy!
I am very excited! Recently Harvey Prince, creators of the one and only anti-aging perfume Ageless Fantasy, has launched another unique scent "Eau Flirt". This time male sexual arousal is at the center of their attention. Their idea was to create a perfume that makes you smell flirty, hot and desirable. As was the case with their anti-aging perfume, this idea is also backed by research. Alan Hirsch and Jason Gruss (Taste and Smell Treatment and Research Foundation) looked into the impact scents produce on male sexual arousal.
So, actually, the release of this new perfume from Harvey Prince makes two of us “excited” me AND my husband ;-)
Are you curious what smells “sexy” to men? Researchers came up with a surprising twosome: lavender and pumpkin pie!! These scents appear to be the two things that turn men on! Who would have thought… But don’t rush and smear a pumpkin pie all over yourself to seduce the object of your desires. Using a complex and elegant fragrance with the notes mentioned is a better strategy. I am happy to be one of the first to try and share my impressions of Eau Flirt with you!
Eau Flirt blend is composed of berry and fruity top notes: black currant, plum, raspberry, apple, black licorice and lavender, floral and spicy middle notes of jasmine, ylang, nutmeg and cinnamon (the classic aromas of pumpkin pie), and a drydown of musk and rare and precious woods
My first impression was that this is not a light fragrance. However it has just the right intensity and spice to excite but not to overwhelm. To draw attention but not to overpower… I prefer to wear Eau Flirt as an evening scent. Fresh and juicy notes of berries and sweet florals flirt with more heavy, “serious” and spicy notes of cinnamon, precious woods and musk. To me raspberry, jasmine and cinnamon notes stood out from the bouquet. Something in the fragrance distantly reminded me of a lollipop I used to love in my childhood. But that is just a personal association… though I wouldn’t at all mind if my darling thinks I am a lollipop :-) ya know what I mean ;-)
