AromaTrim Does the Smell Test

I’ve uploaded a video from the AromaTrim infomercial. AromaTrim was a piece of plastic filled with herbs that people were supposed to sniff to lose their appetites and thus lose weight. Here they go out on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica to get people to try it for themselves:

Wasn’t that last guy was also in the BluBlockers commercial?

  • I believe they already had a substance you could sniff to reduce the urge to eat. It was called cocaine.

  • It won’t happen overnight, but follow directions and using “aromatrim” will end cravings and binge eating. FYI all of you doubters –there is nothing new about the scientific facts of how various scents affect us. Our brains are so incredibly complicated, neurotransmitters, hormones,etc. It’s all about biology/chemistry of the brain. Cocaine? Yeah, that too. What do sex and smell have to do with each other. . ? Ask your pet. Ever wonder why candles, perfumes,soaps are made to smell the way they do? Ever gotten gasoline on your hand and can’t wash it off right away? It drives you nuts, but you just keep sniffing it. Try looking up scientific research on it…at Johns Hopkins or Stanford University.
