“Why do bulls and horses turn up their nostrils when excited by love?” Darwin ponderedWhere_is_the_love deep in one of his unpublished notebooks.  Scientists long ago documented a rich array of animal pheromones, everything from seal, fox and civet, various rodents, boars, beavers, musk deer . . . even the effluence discharged by whales.   Discovering biochemical bouquets for attracting mates as well as marking territory and used for defense, as is the case with the noble skunk.  And, we took them as our own for exotic and sought after perfumes, not putting much thought into human scent, assuming our unique evolution and poor sense of smell lends to the idea that unique olfactory-challenged, sight-oriented hairless bipeds would be the species that conquers the Earth, here are some of the most expensive perfumes in the world.

Wedding cakes are important when it involves planning the entire theme and feel of the wedding. You should not hold back until the final second before deciding on the right one for your wedding. Doing that may just increase the stress of planning that wedding itself. It is not necessary that wedding cakes should be white with the usual flowers.

You may make use of the wedding colors. Blue designs are always gender neutral. A chocolate brown idea is a surprising wedding cake color which will make the wedding reception a wonderful one, attracting people. Should you decide to get a white cake, it is good to mix the color of the decorations. Ideas today make use of a number of shapes for additional interest. In fact, you may let your cakes be in square form and put in a tower rather than making use of tiered stands. You can find the best eggless cake in Singapore here.

Also, modern cakes can be fanciful by integrating several shapes, like rectangles and round together. In case you prefer a fanciful element at the wedding, consider using an idea which looks as if it is leaning. Wedding cakes recipes are very important. You will find quality recipes of  functions, Hawaiian functions, white wedding functions, and so on.

There are also high quality recipes of frosting and icing to make the cakes very beautiful. A few of these quality recipes are traditional although some are of modern versions. As said before, the designs of modern wedding cakes are not just about the usual flowers we are used to. Today, wedding cakes could have geometric designs such as polka dots, swirls or stripes.

You may let your wedding cakes be based on the wedding dress by integrating bead or lace work designs.  If you choose to go for flowers on the cake, you may let the baker make big tropical flowers. Also, it is good to have cherry blossoms on the branch for additional color contrast and texture on the traditional cake.

Modern wedding designs include traditional elements in very good ways. You may design your own cakes so as to exhibit your own personality in the wedding reception. It is possible to make your design the focus of the reception while integrating the entire wedding reception atmosphere or theme because modern wedding ideas can have many colors and shapes.

I don’t doubt that many of my readers here, like myself, dismiss the notion that we humans are bereft of scent-driven.  That just because early scientists in autopsy couldn’t find the same hardware in humans, those two little pits, the VNO (vomeronasal organ) in each nostril, we had been left out of the savory realm of scent.  So, our olfactory prowess was dismissed and discarded, those early analysts  nodding their heads in agreement that humans simply did not rely on scent to any appreciable degree . . . and even physiologists declaring in the 1930’s that humans lacked the brain apparatus necessary to process VNO signals.  So, even if we had a VNO, the thinking was our brains wouldn’t be able to interpret its signals.

One of the very important parts of penis pump is the cylindrical tube. Suppose if the pump you ordered is having very small penis cylinder then what would you do? No other solution than to replace the pump.

It is always better to gather some information on the cylinder as well. You should always select the cylinder which is 1/4 inches greater in diameter of your erect penis. This difference in the tube will help you to gain an optimal balance between the expansion spaces. If you select cylinder with more space than this then you may not get the appropriate and satisfying result which you wanted always. Here you can buy the electric penis pumps, order now.

The basic idea behind the pumping is to increase the blood flow in the penile region. Most of the times the reason behind the erection problems is the poor blood flow. When you start pumping the vacuum gets created around the penis, which draws in the blood to the penis.

There are two kinds of gains in the size which you can get with the pump. First one is temporary which involves the immediate enlargement which you get after using the penis pump. And with the continuous usage of penis pump over time you can get the permanent enlargement as well.

So it goes, the scientific dogma for most of the previous century that humans do not rely on scent to any appreciable degree.  I’m here to report that reports of our olfactory devolution have been greatly exaggerated!  And, it will come as no surprise to readers here that physiologists did discover a functioning vomeronasal organ inside the human nose. Using microscopes unavailable to early nasal explorers, discovering pits lined with receptor cells that fire like mad when presented with certain substances.  And probably less surprising that the discovery was prompted by a venture capitalist searching to cash in on manufactured human pheromones.  Tom Tykwer’s 2006 movie Perfume: The Story of a Murderer, featuring Jean-Baptiste Grenouille’s dark quest for the ultimate perfume ingredient and its exquisite period sets could have us fantasizing a clever 17th century feminine entrepreneur doing a brisk business selling handkerchiefs scented with her body odor.  Or, who knows, perhaps it is the next olfactory market evolution yet to come.

Zoologist Michael Stoddart, author of The Scented Ape, points out that humans possessThe Lovers denser skin concentrations of scent glands than almost any other mammal.  We have long believed that humans don’t pay much attention to the fragrant or the rancid in their day-to-day lives.  Part of the confusion resides in the fact that not all smells register in our conscious minds and that they are rejected when we don’t want to think about them anymore.  In studying Aromatherapy, we learn that our conscious mind can refuse to acknowledge the presence of odor, especially after prolonged periods of smelling it.  We are, therefore, advised to  diffuse in time periods according to other protocols and parameters not related to actively and consciously detecting the aromatic blend being diffused.

As we study and learn more about DNA, there is a segment called the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), codes which function as the immune system’s eyes for recognition.  This recognition triggers the immune system’s teeth – the killer T cells – who then swarm the intruders. Studies in mice have proven that females choose by evaluating males’ MHC profiles and choose those most dissimilar to their own to avoid inbreeding.  It was during early studies involving humans that we discovered we were capable of discerning small differences in the immune systems of mice. This led to further tests in which women rated shirtless barmen sydney men’s body odor and sexiness . . . exactly like mice do.

Although, even that is complicated in that there are still anomalies to the general rule of choice yet to be definitely ascertained. Doctors have known since the mid-1980s that couples suffering repeated spontaneous abortions tend to share more MHC similarities than couples who carry to term. And, if we don’t also know and accept same sex attraction by now, we might remain in those dark, dank ages, now times have change and you need to go with it, sex attraction involves confidence and if you don’t have it, it will not happen, need to boost your confidence?  Those who might be offended by the notion that animal senses play a role in their attraction to a partner need not worry. As the role of smell in human affairs yields to understanding, we see not that we are less human but that our tastes and emotions are far more complex and sophisticated than anyone ever imagined.

Perfume_Bottle_AntiqueWhile this ramble may give you something interesting you may not previously know, on this Valentines Day, you’re probably more interested in a simple bottle of perfume, rose-scented tea and the ever-beloved chocolate delight.  Just remember, if you haven’t developed an awareness yet, while you are nibbling on that lover’s ear, to sniff a bit . . . and judge for yourself whether he/she is the one.

Love and Smelly Kisses,
