Sweet smell of weight loss - new perfume ‘can kill food cravings’
You’ve heard of thinking yourself thin — but can you actually sniff yourself slim?
The new Diet Slimming Perfume has just hit online shelves here.
And promising to vaporise flab, I couldn’t weight to have a spritz.
Promising results in as little as three days, the scented oil made by UK company VZ Hair and Glamour claims to work by curbing your cravings.
You just roll the fragrance on your wrist and have a whiff whenever you feel like tucking into the biccies during the day.
Speaking to the Irish Sun on Sunday, VZ founder Vee Koppelman said: “Diet Slimming Perfume is a fantastic new product for those keen to lose a few pounds before baring all on the beach this summer. From boosting the immune system to detoxing the body, the benefits it offers are incredible.” So can your perfume really improve your health and smell-being?
Blended from whiffy seaweed and lemon oils, the €21 fragrance — which lasts around six weeks — is certainly scent-sational.
And the powerful aroma definitely made me more alert as promised.
Of course, the fact that you’re supposed to guzzle between 8-12 glasses of water per day while you are on the ‘diet’ probably doesn’t hurt either.
It’s not the first time the pong-tastic diet trend has taken off. Research has shown how sniffing lemon oil helps promote lipolysis — the breakdown of fatty acids — in the body.
Curvy Jennifer Lopez reportedly inhales grapefruit oil — which gives off an aroma known to reduce the appetite — up to three times a day to beat the munchies. Svelte Carmen Electra is also believed to carry a vial of the citrus oil with her.
But Wexford-based health and lifestyle coach Brona Cloonan turned her nose up at the idea, saying: “As a process to actually lose weight, I don’t believe it works. If you’re doing all the other things like eating healthily and exercising, you might think that it works. In terms of positive reinforcement, that’s fine.
“The danger is when you become dependent on a particular thing to magically lose weight rather than believing in your own ability to make the necessary lifestyle changes.”
Still, at least I smelled nice when I eventually succumbed to a cream bun!
