Scents like aromatherapy are effective at attracting men because, according to Dr. Mehmet Oz, professor of surgery at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City, aromatherapy works directly on the brain’s emotional center. Many popular women’s fragrance brands play up this fact and use certain types of scents or aromatherapy combinations in their fragrances. The scents appeal to both sexes, but they really work to attract men.


Men are attracted to the smell of something baking in a warm oven, so cinnamon is a natural scent that attracts men. Cinnamon is a natural scent that increases blood flow to the male genitals, according to lovingyou.com.


It is well known that Cleopatra used the seductive scent of lavender to lure Julius Caesar. According to Natural Home Remedies, there are studies that show that scent of lavender is most arousing to young men and may even be useful as a natural remedy for men with impotence, when mingled with pumpkin scent.


Vanilla, a natural aphrodisiac, is a popular scent in fragrances, body care and other feminine beauty and body products. Alan Hirsch, a neurologist for the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, found that vanilla was the smell that aroused older men the most.
