    Unfaithful

    Unfaithful cocktail at Curfew cocktail bar in Denmark

    The idea of putting this cocktail together came from a research on liquorice and cucumber; every guy has wished for a miracle musk; a magical cologne that can ensnare the woman of his dreams. No such secret formula exists, of course, but the right scents can put a woman in the mood. Humberto from Curfew bar in Denmark created a cocktail based on this idea. In the late 90s, Alan Hirsch, MD of the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, set out to discover which scents really push people’s buttons. He exposed subjects to several scents and measured their sexual arousal by monitoring the blood vessels in and around the erotic zones of the human body. The result? A liquorice and cucumber concoction was the most effective in triggering a response in both women and men.
It’s an odd combination, but Hirsch found that it boosted sexual appetite in women more than any other smell. The explanation? "Odors are intricately associated with sexual arousal", Hirsch says. Licorice and cucumber don’t seem sexy, but Hirsch theorizes that their smells may make women comfortable and lower their anxiety levels.
