What are xSense products?
xSense products are precisely dosed collections of natural essential oil scents and jojoba oil, with each scent scientifically found to improve aspects of work or study, play or exercise, rest or de-stressing, creating a more pleasant room ambiance. Related xSense products include diffusers and candles.
Why are there men's and women's versions?
Because research suggested that men and women respond differently to the same scent, we adjusted each formula—that said, if you had the opposite sex version on hand you could still get the benefits, just possibly at a different level.

Are xSense products safe?
All our personal product scents have undergone extensive testing for safety, stability and skin compatibility and meet or exceed present industry and government safety levels at initial launch. Some common-sense instructions: if you have irritated, raw or broken skin due to shaving nicks, skin treatments, acne or other disorder, or if you’re under care for a medical condition, please consult your physician. Like all cosmetic products we recommend patch testing on your forearm before use.
Yeah, but do they work?
Ingredients in all of our xSense products have been carefully chosen and combined in a proprietary formula to enhance benefits. Each was chosen based upon published scientific studies. The specific way each works is only partly known and continues to be researched in many cases, while the actual occurrence of a significant effect has been documented by such studies.
What are the exact benefits I could expect?
Scents in each of our products have demonstrable key benefits in scientific studies: For WorkSense, learning new information (half of which we may forget in one hour) improved by 30% in the short-term and by 40% in the longer term vs. placebo; accuracy improved by 5%, and efficiency improved by 15%; for PlaySense, speed and endurance improved significantly, up to 5%; for RestSense, stress was reduced (by over 50%, with effect lasting days after use) and the relaxation was encouraged towards a meditative state (by approximately 30%).
So what scientific evidence supports your claims?
See our SCIENCE section for more information, but in short, ingredients in each product were carefully selected based on many selective independently performed, prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled scientific studies that showed significant benefit. In many cases the exact mechanism for every ingredient isn't known, beyond having this significant effect over placebo controls.
How do you apply them?
xSense products have come in two varieties of use: (1) personal roll-ons and (2) diffusers. For the roll-on, simply pump till oil droplets appear on the rollerball (indicating precise dose being delivered), then apply to area just underneath the nose (as this is the quickest breathing pathway from skin application). For the diffuser, simply use one of our personal diffusers with interchangeable xSense refills to experience.
How long does a single xSense application last?
High ingredient levels are maintained for 8 hours (with highest concentration and potential effect present during the first hour after application for each of WorkSense, PlaySense, and RestSense ingredients, with an additional lasting stress reduction effect lasting several days for RestSense ingredients).
Can I wear xSense products with my favorite perfume or aftershave?
Of course! That’s what many of us do, and that’s why we designed the concentrated formula to be applied directly under your nose so that you can get the benefits from xSense scents, and still wear your favorite fragrances on other body areas.
How is xSense offered?
Currently xSense is offered in 2 delivery methods: first, via a personal applied roll-on in formulas for men and women; second, via a whole-room unisex personal diffuser that is great for larger areas such as the office, fitness studio, or spa... (contact us if you are interested in the corporate diffusion option, which is already being used, for example, in New York's Park Avenue offices and the CrossFit Hamptons gym, and we will be happy to discuss further).
What sizes do you offer?
Personal roll-ons contain 10ml (about 1/3 ounce) which should last 40 days with single-dose application. These are also available as a set of 3 deluxe samples, each good for at least 4 applications. The samples provide one each of WorkSense, PlaySense and RestSense. The personal diffuser option is offered via the xSense Personal Diffuser with 10-ml refills sold separately. Additionally, a corporate monthly option is available. If you already have a room diffuser and want to find out if xSense products are compatible with your unit, please contact us.
