Floral and spice make you smell thinner

by Deb Dellapena

Researchers at Chicago's Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation--the olfactory pioneers who discovered that pumpkin pie aroma makes men feel sexy, and green apple fragrance controls appetite--have now found that men who like floral-spicy scents thought women wearing the fragrance looked 12 pounds lighter. "It's the equivalent of vertical stripes on a shirt or blouse," says lead researcher Alan R. Hirsch, MD.

Hirsch's team studied the influence of three different scents: floral spice, citrus floral, and sweet pea-and-lily of the valley, on almost 200 men and boys, ages 12 to 61. The guys guessed the weight of a 5'9", 245-pound woman wearing each of the mixtures and underestimated by about 5 percent when she smelled of oranges and flowers.

Not all noses were fooled. Tailors were not persuaded by the floral-spice scent; neither were women. The best replica of the experimental slenderizing fragrance? A mixture of Old Spice men's cologne and floral shampoo.
