SCENTS AND SENSUALITYGurpreet Kaur
To smell a rose is to teach your soul to skip; a nut and a wood together is a walk over fallen autumn leaves; the touch of jasmine is a night’s dream under the nomad’s moon.

Scents; a strong whiff of flowers, the soothing smell of sandalwood paste or the fragrance wafting out of a bottle… They speak to us in a language of emotions and memories, sometimes sensual, sometimes spiritual. And fragrance has a way of lingering on; they may not remember what you wore, but the scent will not be forgotten.
An invisible accessory it is. It is highly personal too. And it is no secret that some smells are the best aphrodisiac available on planet earth. These fragrances, like jasmine, rose, orange and lavender, are known to enhance our natural scent, hiking up the attraction element. Their effects are far-reaching, sending out messages of warmth, sensuality, passion and intimacy. Some heighten the mood and some lower inhibitions.
These scents do help women identify their desires, boost confidence, and realise how deeply rooted they are in their sensual selves. The ravishing smell of a rose or the woody scent of vanilla…there is more to them as they create a whole new world of sensory pleasure. It has been known for centuries too before the fragrance industry made it the USP of their key products.
SMELL LIKE A FLOWER
You may want to wear them as perfume or use beauty products infused with the scent of the most fragrant ingredients found in nature. Like, for example, Soilscents’ moisturiser. Created for normal skin, this bottle contains in it the extracts of jasmine and rose geranium that work their magic to turn the face refreshingly beautiful and leave you smelling like a garden of exotic flowers. The scent lingers the whole day as this moisturiser is a cocktail of organic ingredients like Argan that are blended with all the goodness of nature.
COCOA BUTTER SMOOTHNESS
When it comes to keeping the body silky smooth with a sultry scent that is not all overpowering, nothing beats the power of cocoa butter. It smells divine and lends you a touch of luxury that seems not to end as you go through your routine. Combined with shea butter and mango butter, this exquisite cream can rejuvenate dry and dull skin and make you feel pampered and relaxed. And yes, someone might ask you, “Hey, did you just eat chocolate?”
To make the most of the fragrances, you need to connect with them first. Breathe deeply and let the aroma in, let it surround you and create a cloud of exotic charm. Your hair too should get its share of this pampering, and make sure you extend the beauty treatment with scents to your tresses. Try Soilscents’ shampoo rich with Rosemary Essential Oil. It cleans the scalp skin, helps with the growth of cells and repairs damages. And the lemony scent is simply magical.
Play with these scents and learn what sensuality smells like. Cleopatra was not joking!
