xSense debuted a new line of functional scents at this year’s New York Fashion Week aimed to help people give 100% to all of their tasks. Inspired by Nobel Prize-winning clinical research on how the brain reacts to scents, each xSense scent is specifically formulated with ingredients found to help people make the most out of their day-to-day activities.

Furthermore, xSense products are made from natural oils and are only noticeable to the user, making them easy to wear in conjunction with your normal perfume, cologne, or aftershave. Simply apply the desired scent under your nose before beginning an activity to experience heightened efficiency, performance, and relaxation. They even offer a sample pack of all three scents that make a great stocking stuffer! 

Finally putting scientific sense into natural scents, xSense strives to improve daily work, play, and rest

Can scents make you rest easier, work better, and exercise more effectively? That’s the idea behind xSense, a new line of functional scents introduced this week. Inspired by Nobel Prize-winning clinical research on how the brain reacts to scents, xSense is an entirely new category of consumer product designed to improve certain activities.

xSense is the result of extensive independent clinical research over decades into the impact of scents on human behavior. A select number of independent prospectively designed, randomized, controlled, blinded and peer-reviewed studies have found that specific scents from natural oils do impact some human activities. These ingredients are now contained in three of these xSense products: 

  • WorkSense’s clinically tested natural ingredients have been found to help people learn new information better, increase their accuracy and efficiency with specific tasks, and allow improved retention of information.
  • PlaySense’s specially formulated pure essential oil ingredients have been clinically found to help improve endurance and speed, two key elements of physical performance.
  • RestSense’s natural ingredients have been clinically found to improve relaxation and help reduce stress.

All three products are designed uniquely for either men or women. xSense is applied directly under the nose to deliver higher concentration. Its scent, which allows other scents to be worn (like favorite perfumes, colognes, or aftershave), is oil-based (alcohol-free) and applied for only the user to smell, remaining undetectable to others. The highest concentration and potential effects of individual xSense ingredients are present in the first hour after application, with high ingredient levels maintained for eight hours. In addition, some of the components of RestSense offer stress reduction effective even several days after application.

WorkSense, PlaySense, and RestSense may be purchased directly from xSenseWorld.com in the following sizes:

  • Deluxe sample pack of 3 multi-use vials of WorkSense, PlaySense, and RestSense: $14
  • 10 milliliter (0.3-oz) roller-applicator bottle of each individual scent: $45
  • 3-pack of 10 milliliter bottles each of WorkSense, PlaySense, and RestSense: $95

Ingredients in each xSense product were carefully selected based on independently performed scientific studies that showed specific results. WorkSense, PlaySense, and RestSense, are made from a proprietary mix of natural and pure ingredients shown to engage a user’s sense of smell and potentially enhance their daily activities, allowing increased efficiency, improved endurance, and stress reduction.
