If diet pills, fat-busting sportswear and herbal methods have done nothing to aid your quest for a slim figure then maybe you should try the newest must-have weight loss aid – a slimming perfume?
French skincare brand Veld’s has created Prends Moi, a fragrance that is designed to ‘slim with pleasure’.
The 100ml bottle of perfume features top notes of jasmine and ylang-ylang already has a massive waiting list of 6,000 as The Fragrance Shop is taking orders for the scent priced at £29.99.

Prends Moi, developed by French company Robertet, contains active ingredients that releases B-endorphins and when sprayed onto the skin it transmits a sensation of wellbeing and decreases the desire to eat.
Other ingredients include caffeine, carnitine, and spirulina extract creating a formula that activates the enzymes involved in your body’s ability to break down fat.
Weight loss results can also be achieved by very lightly massaging the perfume into targeted areas, morning and night to help sculpt and slim the contours of the body.

“Use every time the need for snacking arises and in light spraying on the specific zones to be slimmed, morning or nigh,” reads the description on the Veld’s website.
The Veld’s website also claims their promises are supported by a scientific study.
A trial on Prends Moi was conducted by the Centre of Biological Research and Cutaneuous Experimentation (BIO-EC) on women aged between 18 and 70 years, who were not on a diet or medical treatment.
After 28 days of regular use 75 per cent felt it limited the need to snack and 70 per cent felt a feeling of well being.
Will you be adding your name to the waiting list or skipping on this weight loss aid for something more conventional?
