Ever since I was a teen, I’ve been very particular about my perfume and how I smell in general. For as long as I can remember, “you smell so good” has been one of my favorite compliments, and I always find myself feeling my best when I know I’m wearing a scent that radiates confidence. As a result, I’ve become a bit of a self-proclaimed “fragrance snob,” taking a lot of time and consideration—and being a tad picky—when choosing a new scent to try on.
This past summer, I visited a parfum factory in France, and my level of fragrance snobbery only increased, so it’s safe to say I don’t joke around when it comes to endorsing a perfume product. Until recently, I’d always been skeptical about the trend of pheromone oil as perfume, as I was convinced the scent would be minimal and fade fast. But, after one swipe of Riddle’s Original Roll-On Fragrance Oil ($58), I knew I’d found a new signature scent.
What it is:
Riddle’s original roll-on fragrance oil is a high-end, pheromone oil that adjusts to your body’s natural chemistry and works off of an array of individualized factors like hormones, genetics, health, diet and, of course, pheromones, in order to enhance and accentuate your unique, individual scent.
Free of parabens and made with non-toxic, vegan and cruelty-free ingredients, the base oil features notes of amber and musk, and smells like “clean, fresh skin,” but by nature of being a pheromone oil, it smells different on everyone. It is possible, in fact, to not smell the oil on yourself at all since we often become used to our natural scent, but others around you will likely take note of your accentuated fragrance.
How to use it:
Fairly straight forward, to harness the power of this rich pheromone oil, simply roll the fragrance onto your pulse points (wrists, on the neck just under the ears) and gently rub in.
Now, if you’re looking for proof that this can truly work, embarrassingly enough, I didn’t know Riddles Original Roll-On Fragrance was a pheromone oil when I first tried it, so you can imagine my surprise when I went to sniff the bottle and didn’t smell a thing. I applied the oil to my wrists to see if it would make a difference, and within minutes I was graced with a clean yet sultry and androgynous scent that I simply cannot get enough of.
To make sure I wasn’t hallucinating, I asked my partner to sniff the bottle and then my wrist and they had the same experience—no scent from the actual product, but an intoxicating fragrance on my skin. The magic of pheromones! Not only am I obsessed with the scent, I also love the genderless, somewhat mysterious bottle, making it a perfect purse staple.
