In June, 2005, the AP published a story saying that recent research had shown that the scent of grapefruit on women make them seem younger to men — about six years younger. However, a grapefruit fragrance on men does nothing for them.

The Smell and Taste Institute in Chicago conducted the study to determine what makes a women smell young — but not too young, like pink bubble gum.

Several middle-aged woman with broccoli, banana, spearmint leaves, and lavender but none of those scents made a difference to the men.

The scent of grapefruit, however, remarkably changed men's perceptions. When male volunteers were asked to write down how old the woman with grapefruit odor was, the age was considerably less than the women's actual ages.

High-quality, natural grapefruit essential oil is available from at a great low price.
