Can you smell like flowers even if you don’t shower?

Korean boy band group BTS Jimin has been voted the #1 male celebrity that will seem to smell like flowers even after three days without showering. The poll was published on a Korean fan site which gathered over 9000 fans to participate in voting the male celebrities. 

Not only celebrities can smell like flowers. We ordinary people can too. Tired after a long day and have no remaining energy to drag yourself to the shower? Just take these steps and you’re on your way to smelling like flowers.

    1. Perfume your hairbrush- dissipates the scent in your hair and soften chemical impact by directly applying on your scalp
    2. Apply your perfume on the sweet spots- pulse points like wrists, elbows, neck, these warm spaces will help the fragrance to last longer
    3. Powder yourself- helps to absorb any perspiration when you are asleep and you can wake up smelling fresh! 
    4. Avoid wearing polyester materials shown to harbour sweat and bacteria more
    5. Drink plenty of water and avoid strong smelling foods- H20 helps to dilute strong scents and keep away unpleasant odours
    6. Hit your closet with your go-to-fragrance– spray your perfume on your clothes once a week to give you a hint of your signature scent that allows for additional layering.  
    7. Use detergent with strong scents/ add 10-20 drops of essential oils to your wash-  keeps your whole body smelling great perpetually throughout the day
    8. Spray your bedding essentials with your favourite scents- gives your bedding a scent and helps you to fall asleep feeling relaxed

HARRY STYLES CANDLES

U.S. 8th largest retailer, Target is selling a candle that apparently smells like Harry Styles favorite perfume – Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanilla. Styles’ fans will conceivably do unusual things to feel nearer to their idol, but this wins all. 

Selling at a retail price of USD$9.99, the perfume will presumably make you feel just like the Watermelon Sugar singer! It is currently sold out at Target stores across the U.S. Unlucky fans expressed their dismay on social media for not being fast enough to get their hands on the candle… You’re not the only one, don’t worry. 

Meanwhile, those who manage to get the holy grail declared their delights in social media. Abigail Hampton, one of Styles’ diehard fan even wrote on Twitter, “CASHMERE VANILLA. The one and only Harry Styles candle that smells like the Tobacco Vanilla Tom Ford Cologne. It’s heavenly. I bought two. Even if you don’t like Harry Styles, it’s an amazing candle. 11/10 would recommend. It smells so good.” Well, lucky you!

Being a fan of a scented candle or two, the man himself brings them on tour. He also told Dazed magazine that he likes fragrances that has some emotions behind it. The smell triggers a memory so strong for everyone. He added that his mother has always worn the same perfume – like Roman candles and Jasmine – making him feel like a kid all over again!

What are you waiting for? Get your hands on Harry Styles’ mother’s favourite perfume before it runs out too… 

The Sweet Smell of School Success

Did you know – our sense of smell is largely associated with our memories? Probably more so than any of our other senses! Individuals with full olfactory function may relate that smells evoke particular memories in our brains. Let’s take a look at how Franziska Newman, a trainee school teacher at the University of Freiburg, discovered the links between smell and memory and went on to test whether the connection could aid students in recollecting their lessons.  

Recently, Franziska raised the idea about linking smells to memories when she found out that the smell of her olive face cream brought back memories of her mother wearing the same cream. To verify her hypothesis, she recruited a small group of students learning English vocabulary as her sample size to put to a test. The first group of students were given a rose-scented incense to place by their books while they study and during a test. The second group of students put the incense sticks beside their beds when they slept, while the third group used the incense sticks to study, sleep and during the exam.  

Interestingly, the results displayed that combining smell with study and sleep improved students’ grades! Evidently, this indicates that scents facilitate in assigning the information they have learnt from short-term memory to long-term memory. However, this doesn’t mean that one does not have to study to retain information in the brain. Franziska also added that it is still crucial for one to study and pass an examination, but use scents to help in memory storage and eventually, boost exam scores. 

There you go, kids. A simple trick to get that A+ for your examination! Good luck and you can thank us later.
