Perfume as aphrodisiac

"People often think of perfumes as aphrodisiacs that attract others. But in reality, the scents we buy attract us to ourselves. A dab of one fragrance can make us happy, the spray of another can inspire the kind of confidence that comes with wearing a favorite shirt or pair of shoes. And it’s the projection of that inner happiness and confidence that really makes us more attractive to others."

Perfumes could really turn you on, just like an aphrodisiac. So relating the two seems right.

As a person who has worn perfume for many decades I wholeheartedly agree!
