Findings suggest that wearing perfume inhibits behaviours that project negative impressions.The results of the observer rating showed that the interviewees in the perfume group used less non-symbolic movement when wearing perfume. Analysis of the video clips showed that they decreased their non-symbolic movement for about 6  seconds in the third block. The degree of smiling and eye contact remained the same. These results suggest that individuals who wear perfume have the potential to improve their visual impression by using less movement that produces negative impressions.

Quoique plusieurs considérations méthodologiques limitent les conclusions tirées de ces résultats, la présente étude a montré que le fait de porter du parfum a le potentiel de provoquer des changements dans le comportement non verbal et d’améliorer les impressions visuelles.
