Ever wondered what the opposite sex remembers about you, say, from a first date, or how to really leave a lasting impression with a new love interest? Wonder no longer. Caress conducted a survey to find out exactly that—and the results are fascinating. Keep scrolling to see what men are twice as likely to remember over your name!
The findings found that men are more than twice as likely to remember how you smelled and the feel of your skin than your name (!). In addition, six in 10 men find their significant other desirable because of their soft touch or irresistible scent, and 35% of those surveyed said an undesirable scent or fragrance is a second-date deal breaker.
The survey was conducted by Kelton Global, a consulting agency that worked with Caress, who came out with a new line of body washes (the Fragrance Forever Collection) using fragrance touch technology. After using the product in the shower, the touch-activated product releases fragrance on your body for up to 12 hours. Though the fact that it would be in Caress's best interest to have fragrance-favorable results might make you wonder, the survey was administered via TrueSample, a data industry–respected online tool that assures objective results. (TrueSample promises that survey respondents are real, unique, qualified, and engaged—aka not spam or Internet bots—and it uses third-party databases to validate the identity and representative sample of respondents, in case you were wondering, as we were.)
In this case, respondents included 1031 Americans ages 18 and over, more than half of the male portion of whom validated that their emotional connection to both scent and touch, in person, has the most staying power in their brains (hence the beauty of a body wash that releases fine fragrance every time skin is touched for up to 12 hours). We have to admit it’s a pretty cool concept, especially in the era of Tinder dates being a dime a dozen, and wanting to feel unforgettable in front of a new flame.
