Ageless Fantasy: Can Perfume Make You Smell Younger?

I don't have the answer to that, but a new fragrance called Ageless Fantasy is supposed to make those anti-aging dreams of yours come true.

Here is what the company says about the formula:

"The blended tropical flavors of pineapple, mango and leafy greens have been known to bring a feeling of comfort often associated with positive childhood memories, thus giving a sense of coziness, youth and joy. Tropical notes bring a more youthful impression while indulgent, creamy florals - jasmine and cherry blossom appeal to the modern woman. Musk, dry woods and vanilla combine for an earthy, natural fragrance. Organic citrus natural compounds create a rich, sophisticated & energizing scent. Combined with antioxidant pomegranate AgelessFantasy® achieves powerful euphoric properties, sets off a feeling of youth and excitement. Smells youthful. Feels youthful. Is youthful."

This idea of using fragrance to influence others perceptions of your age isn't new. It wasn't so long ago that several studies were done showing that pink grapefruit scents seem to affect age perception, and this fragrance just builds on that.

So does it work? I don't know. I didn't find anyone who thought I was younger, but I did get a lot of compliments on the scent, and several people asked me where they could purchase it. It's a lovely light scent, citrus and floral being the dominant notes, not completely my style, but perfectly lovely nevertheless. Will it work for you? I don't know that either, but I'm betting you'll at least get a few compliments like I did.

I had the same experience. People liked the scent but no one seemed to think I was younger. Of course most were people that know my age so that didn't help.

Looking young is not the only way of being younger. To feel cheerful & confident does matters and that's why I wear Ageless Perfume.

"This idea of using fragrance to influence others perceptions of your age isn't new." - I agree Meredith, actually this is as old as civilization itself & Ageless is following the trend.

Vanessa, you go and mix with new people while wearing Ageless. That would certainly bring out some surprising result. Jackie silver (author of Aging backwards)also recommends for the perfume. She is just like one anti-age icon!”
