It's true that when we usually think of baths and luxury soap bars, many of us imagine flowery, delicate aromas, fancy bubbles, and other things that many men may not connect with. But it doesn't have to be that way! Actually, some of our favorite soaps are the ones with more masculine aromas. In fact, I go out of my way to use the bathroom that has a bar of the Basil + Lime Cleansing Soap at the sink, just because I love the way it smells so much! (And it makes my hands feel amazing.) So, even though we may not be able to convince men to start enjoying long, luxurious soaks in the tub, we still find ourselves inspired to create great soaps that embrace some of the more masculine aromas.
The part of your brain that processes a smell is directly linked to parts of your brain that are associated with memory and feelings, which is why many consider smell to be the most powerful sense. I know that the aroma of a soap is going to take me somewhere in my mind. The question is where do you want to go? Sometimes, as a woman, I may not want to wear a scent, but I do want to be near it. It can be a great idea to gift the man in your life with the soap that you would like them to smell like. There are so many ways to enrich your day-to-day experience (and the experience of others) with scent and aromatherapy.
