the romance of perfume

Tu perfume me embriaga a la lejanía y tu cuerpo es deseado por mí acá en este lugar remoto, provocando el mí el deseo desbordante de tu cercanía, cercanía de un beso y una dulce caricia, de estar el mismo lecho y amanecer entrelazados del alma, sintiendo la piel de tus sueños y el respiro de nuestro amor que se vuelve eterno.

The 5 Senses of Attraction

Romantic chemistry is all about warm, gooey feelings that gush from the deepest depths of the heart…right? Not quite. Actually, the real boss behind attraction is your brain, which runs through a very quick, very complex series of calculations when assessing a potential partner. 

We know. The idea of so much of our attraction being influenced by chemicals and evolutionary biology can seem cold and scientific rather than romantic. But the next time you see someone you like, try to appreciate how your entire body is playing matchmaker to decide if that beautiful stranger is right for you.

After all, just because the calculations are happening in your brain doesn’t mean those warm, fuzzy feelings are all in your head. In fact, all five of your senses play a role, each able to vote for (or veto) a budding attraction.

#1. Sight

The eyes are the first components in attraction. Many visual beauty standards vary between cultures and eras, but signs of youth, fertility and good health, such as long lustrous hair, or smooth, scar-free skin are almost always in demand because they’re associated with reproductive fitness.

#2. Smell

The nose’s contribution to romance is more than noticing perfume or cologne. It’s able to pick up on natural chemical signals known as pheromones. These not only convey important physical or genetic information about their source but are able to activate a physiological or behavioral response in the recipient.

#3. Hearing

Our ears also determine attraction. Studies have shown that heterosexual men prefer females with high-pitched, breathy voices and wide formant spacing, correlated with smaller body size, while heterosexual women prefer low-pitched voices with a narrow formant spacing that suggest a larger body size.

#4. Touch

And not surprisingly, touch turns out to be crucial for romance. In one experiment, not realizing the study had begun, participants were asked to briefly hold a coffee, either hot or iced. Later, the participants read a story about a hypothetical person and were asked to rate their personality. Those who had held the hot cup of coffee perceived the person in the story as happier, more social, more generous, and better-natured than those who had held the cup of iced coffee, who rated the person as cold, stoic and unaffectionate.

#5. Taste

If a potential mate has managed to pass all these tests, there’s still one more: the infamous first kiss, a rich and complex exchange of tactile and chemical cues, such as the smell of one’s breath and the taste of their mouth. This magic moment is so critical that a majority of men and women have reported losing their attraction to someone after a bad first kiss.

Once attraction is confirmed, your bloodstream is flooded with norepinephrine, activating your fight or flight system. Your heart beats faster, your pupils dilate, and your body releases glucose for additional energy — not because you’re in danger but because your body is telling you that something important is happening. To help you focus, norepinephrine creates a sort of tunnel vision, blocking out surrounding distractions, possibly even warping your sense of time, and enhancing your memory. This might explain why people never forget their first kiss.

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

From the TED-Ed Lesson The science of attraction - Dawn Maslar

Animation by TOGETHER

“The dusky and faintly sweet smell of her perfume came to Therese again, a smell suggestive of dark green silk, that was hers alone, like the smell of a special flower.”

Have you ever loved a rose,
and watched her slowly bloom;
and as her petals would unfold, you grew drunk on her perfume.

Have you ever seen her dance,
her leaves all wet with dew;
and quivered with a new romance-
the wind, he loved her too.

Have you ever longed for her,
on nights that go on and on;
for now, her face is all a blur,
like a memory kept too long.

Have you ever loved a rose,
and bled against her thorns;
and swear each night to let her go,
then love her more by dawn.

—  The Rose, Lang Leave
Perfume.

Every single day Harry makes a notice of your scent in multiple ways - sometimes he’ll hug you and then inhale your scent, sometimes he’ll let his eyes roll to the back of his head out of pleasure and sometimes he’ll just make a cute comment to make you blush.

But today was different, Harry had been extra appreciative all day. This morning you has just sprayed on your regular scent - Chanel No.5 & vanilla scented Tom Ford with a hint of cinnamon - and harry was going crazy.

You know how much he loves you as he expresses it everyday, but today is a different level. Since he got back from the studio he has been touching and holding you in anyway possible. When you’re cooking he’s holding you from behind with his head in the crook of your neck inhaling your signature smell. When on the couch he lays on your lap smelling your body.

“whats up baby?” you ask him almost concerned.

Harry twists his head so its now facing you. “nothing love” he frowns in confusion. You shrug it off - you’re probably overthinking it.

2hrs later.


You were now laying on you and Harrys shared bed in only panties and a shirt whilst harry had a shower. You were sitting there book in hand and candle lit. It was after a while when you heard the shower turn off and Harry came walking out soon after with a towel draped over his hips.

He had water dripping over his sculpted body and you almost moaned at the sight.

You smiled at him and then returned to your book all red a flustered.

Harry had taken in your state and crawled up to your legs and pulled them to get you at the bottom of bed. 

“Harry!” You shrieked. “What are you doing?”

Harry only smirked and let his finger twirl in the band of your panties. 

You quickly caught on and you weren’t too sure since he’s been acting weird today.

Harry then brought his hand closer to your core and slowly whispered “You just smell so good baby.”

You automatically blush and Harry took that as a signal to take charge.

He slowly pulled your panties off by the bands and you gasped at his touch lingering down your body. Harry then stood up and gave you a sweet lingering kiss on your lips. Trying to save the kiss, Harry then broke it and let his kisses follow down your body. Your neck, collarbones, chest, tummy and core. He then kisses both your inner thighs ticking you. You gasped as Harry let his tongue glide across his centre preparing. He then let his plump lips capture you and make you shiver, he sucked and then flicked his tongue in-between your folds. Your whole body becoming sweaty and warm and awfully pleasured.

Harry continued with his work always looking up to check if his girl was okay. He focused on the clitoris licking you up and down. He grabbed your thighs when you squirmed at the insane amount of pleasure. Harry looked up and saw you with your eyes shut, mouth gaping open and your back arched in pleasure. His mouth stretched out against your vagina in a smile, he loved making his girl happy. 

“Baby, look at me.” Harry asked in a hush tone.

You were too into this that you didn’t even know he was talking to you.

Harry then squeezed your thighs which were hanging over his shoulders.

“Baby” he breathed.

“Yes” you breathed in response.

“Keep your eyes open love and look at me.” He whispered as if he’s almost ashamed at his overdose of love for you.

You gave him a lazy smile since you couldn’t even fully interpret his words. But you watched your boyfriend who was magical in every single way, fuck even his tongues magic. 

You then feel climax build up as harry flicked his tongue on your clitoris. You tightens you legs and Harry squeeze them to help keep them tamed. You tense every part of your body and then when Harry inserts his tongue one more time you explode and your body relaxes and Harry gives you a little kiss on your thigh.

Harry crawled back up to you and gave you another kiss on your forehead. 

“You know i love you with all my heart y/n.” Harry states in pure proudness.

You smile in awe. “You know i love you with all my heart Harry.” You respond

He giggles, basically the sound of heaven. “Yeah I know” he cheekily responds.

You let out a breathy laugh and snuggle next to him. Harry shifts so your head is in the crook of his neck and he kisses your head before whispering.

“And i love your bloody perfume too.”

2. Use perfume with the appropriate correspondences for what you want to bring into your life. Look into what the base notes, top notes etc of your perfumes and use different perfumes based on what you need that day. Alternatively, make your own perfumes with essential oil and carrier oil.

EGYPTIAN MYTHOLOGY:  hathor.

Hathor was also the goddess of beauty and patron of the cosmetic arts. Her traditional votive offering was two mirrors and she was often depicted on mirrors and cosmetic palettes. Yet she was not considered to be vain or shallow, rather she was assured of her own beauty and goodness and loved beautiful and good things. She was known as “the mistress of life” and was seen as the embodiment of joy, love, romance, perfume, dance, music and alcohol. Hathor was especially connected with the fragrance of myrrh incense, which was considered to be very precious and to embody all of the finer qualities of the female sex. Hathor was associated with turquoise, malachite, gold and copper. As “the Mistress of Turquoise” and the “lady of Malachite” she was the patron of miners and the goddess of the Sinai Peninsula (the location of the famous mines). The Egyptians used eye makeup made from ground malachite which had a protective function (in fighting eye infections) which was attributed to Hathor.
