Alpha Scents

When writing descriptions, it's important to include all the senses. Perhaps one of the most challenging senses to portray with the written word is the sense of smell.

I try to give each of my characters a signature scent. Some heroines sport a fruity shampoo scent while others smell like exotic flowers. For the men, I like spicy, clean scents, but I can't have all my alpha heroes smelling the same.

So I was glad to see the Tweet today from Men's Health magazine that pointed to a list of six colognes for athletes - Smells Like Team Spirit. I love the description of the first one on the list, Burberry Sport for Men. "It's a fierce fragrance for an alpha male."

I think I know what my next hero will smell like!
