11+1 must have fragrances for men
Words by Eleni Skalkotou
The sense of smell can perceive much more than what we realize, and this is because, compared to the other senses, it communicates quicker with the center of the brain’s emotion. This explains the fact that the right choice of perfume has the ability to succesfully build up our image at a business meeting or a date. But whatever the circumstances, the appropriate choice of perfume has to do with the right timing, mood, style and the personality we wish to highlight. In any case, we should remember that the aromatic alchemy we choose is our own, personal seal, which will be imprinted in the memory of anyone we meet and it becomes one of the first things people remember, consciously or subconsciously.
