With so many different fragrances for men and women, it can be hard to distinguish between the most commonly used and the actual preferred scents. Not only will we discuss a handful of new products, but we will also look at the scientific reasoning as to why some people are drawn to specific smells.
Here are some of the most popular fragrances on the market and just why we cannot help but be drawn to their aromas. So make sure to keep these scent secrets in mind next time you are out looking for a new fragrance.
This fragrance, which was only launched this spring, mixes the scent of roses with other tamer scents, making it quite classy and chic.
Roses have always been a feminine and popular scent and are often seen as a romantic gesture and of the highest quality. Studies have shown that men like to feel romanticized and wear products of the best quality.
In scientific terms, the fragrance can be easily identified even in low concentrations of air, thus it easily attracts us. Soft floral scents are also invigorating and are associated with health and beauty.
This popular new fragrance for spring and summer includes some very familiar scents, including Mandarin and boysenberry. These two ingredients alone give the fragrance a nice fruity smell. And while many other fragrances often have some form of fruity smell, this one really stands out. But you may be asking why this is the case, what is it about fruity odors that draws us in?
One reason may be the fact that there are so many different fruits available and that you can pretty much mix pretty any of them together to create an exceptional smell.

Of course there are countless fragrances for women. But what about men’s fragrances?
Many colognes have similar ingredients as women’s perfumes. In this case, the fragrance is a perfect combination of both fruits and woody smells. Wood and forest smells seem to be especially relevant in men’s colognes. But why?
Well, including woody smells into colognes seems to present a dominant attraction that men prefer to give off. When women in a study were asked which scents they preferred, they almost always tended to turn towards the forestry and outdoorsy smells; regardless of the season.
