Women are most likely to be woken up by the whiff of coffee, while their men prefer the smell of fried food as the best aroma to help get them out of bed to face the day, a survey in Britain has revealed.

However, overall the scent of coffee will kick-start. 26% of Britons into life, although 27% of men say the smell of eggs, bacon, sausages and fried bread wafting from the kitchen is the enticement they need to get going in the morning, according to the survey.

Phil Atherton of bedding firm Slumberdown, which carried out the survey, said: “This research shows beyond doubt that the scents we traditionally associate with the morning are the ones that act as the best wake-up stimulants.”
