Prends Moi: The World's First Slimming Fragrance

First its cakes that help you burn calories and now its fragrances that help you to lose weight.

Prends Moi Eau De Minceur by Veld’s is the latest innovative beauty product designed for far more than their traditional purpose.

Apparently, smelling nice just isn’t enough anymore, so they have created a fragrance that not only smells lush, but is being marketed as the world’s first slimming fragrance.

Here comes the science part, concentrate...

Prends Moi based on extensive aromatherapeutic and ‘neurocosmetic’ research and contains active ingredients including ‘Betaphroline’ which when it comes in to contact with keratinocytes (cells found in the outer layer of the skin) will induce the release of B-endorphins present in the skin.

 A ‘pleasure message’ is transmitted through the neurotransmitters (impulse from a nerve cell to another nerve, muscle, organ or other tissue) to the hippocampus (the ‘odour brain’) triggering an immediate sensation of well being, a reduction in stress and an increase in contentment reducing the need to overeat and the scents slimming action is activated. 

 Sounds far too good to be true, but does it work.

Well, despite the rather unappealing look of the bottle (looks more like a deodorant can than a bottle of perfume to be honest) the fragrance was actually really pleasant.

Containing notes of bergamot, mandarin and grapefruit, the fragrance is ever so slightly fruity while the notes of musk, vanilla, patchouli and jasmine tone it down into a lovely, subtle and delicate scent.

I definitely felt relaxed as I enjoyed the fragrance wafting from my neck every time I moved. It almost provoked the same response in me as when I go for a massage and am surrounded by relaxing, aromatherapy scents.

Whether the perfume can actually affect you so much that it reduces the need for you to over eat, I’m not sure.  I think I’d need to be wearing and trailing it for a far longer period of time to notice any differences.

 For me, the jury’s out on whether Prends Moi actually works as an aid to slimming, but what i will say is that it’s a really pleasant fragrance which would be perfect all year round.
