James Bond 007 Fragrance Quantum for Men


What are Bond’s most tempting traits? 

Bond is the apex of masculinity and his magnetism lures women on a very raw and ‘primitive’ level. He represents the true, iconic male figure and what could be more attractive to women than this? Despite being a secret agent, Bond never changes who he is when it comes to women, his independence evokes a certain mysteriousness which most certainly keeps women guessing.  This, along with Bond’s unwavering confidence in all areas of his life, has to be his most enticing and alluring of traits.

Why has Bond remained timeless? 


The name ‘Bond’ has become synonymous with masculinity, it is his ultimate weapon and power – men aspire to be him and women desire to be with him. Although we think of Bond as the pinnacle of timeless sophistication we have seen him evolve over time.  We have seen a gentler and more philosophical side to him, and it is his ability to remain relevant to both men and women which is of paramount importance to his success. Just as Bond’s sophistication and raw masculinity has evolved and is relevant in the modern world, the aromatic fougere aspect of James Bond 007 Fragrance has an ability to modernize, evolve and grow in sophistication, and that is the key to its longevity.

Why would men want to smell like Bond? 

Pheromones are powerful hormonal scents that tell women whether a man is ‘hot or not.’  The James Bond Fragrance exudes masculine sophistication, passion, mystery and seduction. This new fragrance for men includes ingredients that evoke vibrant masculinity through the woody and aromatic ingredients. The scent of a man can be a key factor in sub-consciously stimulating the desires of a woman, to sweep her off her feet and draw her in with his charm and magnetism.

Thank you Dr Louann Brizendine for sharing your insight. We can see why Bond is such a hit with the ladies!
