    Prends-Moi Perfume Promises Weight Loss, But Smells Like Total BS

    1 day ago by Deborah Dunham | Leave a comment | Share a Tip
    Get a whiff of this: There is a new perfume on the market that promises it can help you lose weight. That’s right, the French fragrance is called Prends-Moi, and thanks to its bouquet of don’t-be-fat chemicals, it claims that it will “slim with pleasure.” It’s something that reeks of yet another get-thin-quick scam, and yet, they already have a waiting list of over 6,000 suckers.
    Based on “aromatherapeutic” and “neurocosmetic” research, Veld’s has developed this new fragrance that includes scents of caffeine, carnitine, and spirulina, which supposedly act as lipolysis or fat degradation. They also claim it can curb our appetites and control our lack of willpower that makes us want to do normal things like eat.
    And based on a trial study, Prends Moi is claiming that it actually works. Women between the ages of 18 and 70 found that 75% felt the perfume limited the need to snack and 73% felt a feeling of pleasure. What kind of pleasure? The kind that comes with wasting your money and putting a big fat “sucker” sign on your forehead?
    Further BS claims say that by simply massaging this fragrance onto all of our targeted areas (i.e., fatty cellulite spots we like to pretend don’t exist),it will help “sculpt and slim the contours of the body.”
    Spray some on and not only will you smell good, but you’ll lose inches! Yeah, right.
    Please tell us that you are not one of the 6,000 suckers waiting to try this?

    If it sounds too easy to be true, it probably is. But there's also a sucker born every minute, so...

    Well, there are studies linking olfactory & food intake

    Abstract

    OBJECTIVES:

    To assess dietary behavior and possible changes in food selection in patients with smell loss.
    PATIENTS AND METHODS:

    A total of 176 patients (114 women and 62 men) age 17 to 86 years were classified into three diagnostic groups (normosmia, n = 12; hyposmia, n = 75; functional anosmia, n = 89) according to their olfactory test scores obtained with "Sniffin' Sticks." Group differences in food intake and dietary behaviors were investigated with a specifically designed questionnaire providing a dietary alterations score (DAS).
    RESULTS:

    Numerous dietary changes were reported, e.g., 29% of all patients reported that they eat less since the onset of olfactory dysfunction, 39% use more spices with their food, 47% go out to eat at restaurants less frequently, 37% eat less sweets, and 48% drink less sweet beverages. Subjects with weight gain or weight loss scored higher on the DAS scale than subjects who did not report changes in weight. Similarly, DAS scale changes were more pronounced in subjects with a gradual onset of olfactory loss compared to subjects with a sudden loss of olfaction. Finally, a change of taste preferences toward savory and salty foods was observed across all patients enrolled in the present study.
    CONCLUSIONS:

    Patients with olfactory loss report alterations of dietary behaviors. Numerous factors appear to impact the results of olfactory loss in terms of changes in diet.
