Top 10 Romantic Wines
Making Scents of Pheromones
The Best Wines for Romantic Occasions
The scientific community has been studying the effects of wine, from inebriation to health, for many years. One recent investigation has been examining the link between the scent of wine and romance. According to the research of Dr. Max Lake, author of the book Scents and Sensuality, the aromas of certain wines can spark arousal. In the case of some vino, aromas can replicate the scents of human pheromones (which signal attraction in the brain). In general, Lake found that the earthy scents of red wines (like leathery, musky, etc.) come most close to resembling male pheromones. Female pheromones are best represented by the earthy side (sweaty, yeasty, doughy, etc.), in white and sparkling wines.
