When my boyfriend and I first started dating, he mentioned to me that he had recently watched a program that claimed that a huge piece of the attraction puzzle is based on the way a person smells. Apparently, the scent of a potential mate plays a large part in determining whether or not you’ll be – and remain – interested.
At the time, I remember thinking how true that statement was. I mean, every time I leaned in for a hug my heart raced. To me, he smelled like a clean, manly version of heaven. He didn’t shower himself with cologne, and he’s not one to bathe in aftershave, but he just plain smelled good.
Ah, love at first smell.
While some girls certainly fall for pricey colognes or drugstore body sprays (the cloud of Axe that lingers whenever my brother gets ready for a date leads me to believe that this is an effective mating call), I prefer the fresh clean smell of a man. Well, my man. But guys have some subtler tricks up their sleeves when it comes to smelling amazing. Case in point: Dial For Men Blue Grit.
Yep, I’m swooning over Dial soap. This simple, inexpensive soap has gritty bits in it that promise to get skin good and clean. It’s really a pretty average bar soap – it get’s the job done (that is, cleansing the skin) without any extra bells and whistles. But it’s not it’s cleaning power that gets me all hot and bothered. It’s the smell.
My boyfriend and I both agree that Dial For Men Blue Grit smells awesome. It doesn’t have that chemical cologne scent that many men’s products share, and it definitely isn’t an overpowering aroma, but the way his skin smells after he gets out of the shower is wonderful. Clean, manly, and irresistible.
When I asked him to rate the soap, he said he’d give it 3 out of 5 stars for overall feel and 5 out of 5 for scent. So ladies, if you like your man to smell like, well, a man, get him a bar of Blue Grit.
And fellas, I guarantee, if you smell like this soap, you’ve got the scent part of attraction in the bag.
