There's Chemistry Behind Attraction | Sam's NaturalThere’s Chemistry Behind Attraction

What’s up with Marc? His stories are legendary, and he gets everyone laughing. He picks up a guitar and pulls it off like he’s Ed Sheeran’s better-looking brother. Marc not only shoots a game of pool like a pro, he volunteers at an animal shelter and dominates in pick-up basketball. The dude just loves life, and he smells good – like, really good. It’s not that in-your-face, try-too-hard cologne smell some guys reek of, but you could swear he just naturally smells like aged leather and cedar. Damn.

Don’t we all want a little more of what Marc’s got? When it comes to what attracts women, mantelligence backs me up. According to their (highly scientific) research, women rate men with confidence, passion and ambition, ability to listen, kindness, and (not least) a sense of style much higher on the attractiveness scale.

So, what can us average guys do? Here are some “Marc” qualities we can channel guaranteed to give us all a little of what he has:

He knows himself. Marc just doesn’t care about what other people think. He’s secure in his own skin. He picks up on what’s happening and follows his own instincts.

He connects. Marc isn’t all about Marc. He loves life, and he loves people. You’ve seen how he leans in and makes eye contact with everyone he talks to. You would think he’s hanging on every word. Who wouldn’t want to be around someone like that?

He takes care of himself. The guy knows how to put his best foot forward. Marc may not be the next magazine cover model, but he owns his look. His hair and beard look great. He wears his clothes well. Even the way he smells is part of his own style. Let’s get real. We could all take a little more time and care with our own look and grooming. Whether our look is high-style, sporty, classic, or our go-to is jeans and a t-shirt, a little effort goes a long way.

Speaking of smell, check out this Huffpost article that reveals (no surprise here) scent plays a big part in the attractiveness equation. Just what scent is a matter of personal preference, but we humans do have some favorites. Romper.com shares some clear human favorites including vanilla, orange fruits, and woodsy scents including vetiver (from the grassy vetiver plant). So, if you don’t want to douse yourself in cologne, how can you channel some smell-good mojo? One way is to pick the right deodorant. Picking up an effective and good-smelling natural deodorant takes care of the stinky while putting you up a few rungs on the attraction ladder.

Why not check out Sam’s natural formulations? If I do say so myself, they are the best-smelling deodorants out there. With sixteen options featuring natural ingredients such as vanilla, mandarin, vetiver, mahogany, sandalwood, and tobacco, you’re sure to find something you and the room will love. (We understand Marc is a fan of our Leather Natural Deodorant.) And, it’s cheaper than guitar lessons.

“Doing good” used to be a concept relegated to nonprofits and volunteers. Companies were proudly in the business of making money. In the 1980s movie Wall Street, Gordon Gekko summed it up this way, “Greed for lack of a better word, is good.”

But nothing exists in a vacuum. If the last few decades have taught us anything, it is that we live in an interconnected and interdependent world. Making money can’t be the only focus. We have to think about how we go about it, especially when it comes to the planet we all share.

Your body is already a “clean” machine.

You’d think your sweat was a bad thing. What’s up with all those ads for products that promise a powder-puff future of sweat-free living? Walk into any drugstore, and you see antiperspirants lined up like soldiers ready to go to battle to save us from our own moisture. Personally, I like working up a little perspiration – it’s the sign of a hard day’s work or a great workout.

Are you confused with all the terms marketers are bombarding you with these days on product labels? So are we.  So many labels boast this or that-free, but don’t tell you what’s actually in it. It pays to do your homework. We’re all about truth and transparency, so here’s what we know. It really is pretty simple.
