The scent of love

As far as the senses go, odor is said to be our closest kin to memory. It's no wonder that some scents can evoke a powerful, romantic response. Think of these scents next time you plan a dinner for two.

Ancient Arabic books cite black pepper as lascivious
Legend has it Cleopatra used a mixture of cinnamon, cardamon and rose to woo Marc Anthony
Lemon and citrus are said to be revitalizing
Black licorice will draw women near
and Men supposedly think of love with a wiff of cinnamon and vanilla
