In this modern world people are obsessed about smelling and looking good and being hygienic and perfect in many ways. Most of us don’t really even need deodorants, but we use them anyway as that is how we are thought to do when we hit out teenage years. Our personal smell may be effected by hormones, foods we eat, spices, some medications or illnesses. The smell increases as we sweat and is caused by bacteria breaking down protein in our skin. Our glands release the sweat and scent when the body regulates its temperature. We all have our own unique body odour same as other animals. Your odour may change if you suffer from any hormonal changes or medical conditions.
We all love chocolate in some form, some like it mixed with nuts or fruits, some like light and sweeter, some dark and bitter. There is something for everyone. Chocolate makes a lovely desert, treat or even a skincare product. I love chocolate flavour with coffee, strawberries and mint. I also love the scent of chocolate in general. As we are celebrating World Chocolate Day this week, I thought it would be appropriate to write about it.
