My Top Five Favorite Intentional ASMR Videos of all Time: #1

It took a while to get here, but the time has come.  The number one video on my list (as of today) features one of the most popular ASMRtists, but doesn't show her face.  The video is simple, and is "powered" by only the sounds of the creator's voice, hand movements, and the occasional spritz of a perfume bottle.  Do you know which video I'm talking about?

Pat yourself on the back if you thought of QueenOfSerene's amazing Fragrance Counter Role Play!  The video can be found here:

I've always been triggered by QueenOfSerene's voice.  She has a rich voice that has a hint of a gravelly texture (in the best way possible).  She's lovely, and all her videos come across as very professional..I'm convinced she's a jack of all trades.  I've fallen asleep to her videos literally hundreds of times---but her perfume video lit up my body with tingles from the start.  There were no little tingles, it was full blown base of the spine seizing tingles that knocked me out in the first 10 minutes.

There's something about watching someone apply perfume that has always struck me as elegant.  You don't get to see anyone apply perfume to themselves in Q.O.S's video---but her voice communicates that slow grace (if that makes any sense).  Q.O.S has a remarkable understanding of ASMR.  The lady knows triggers, and executes them with precision.  The way she handles the perfumes---like a home shopping model---is perfect.  She also has a variety of bottles that produce different sounds---making the video akin to a sound assortment video without all the unrelated props.

My favorite moment is early in the video:  it involves the second bottle of perfume that Q.O.S displays.  The perfume is called "Purr," and has a little dangly accent on the bottle.  When Q.O.S says "Purr" and then the little accent clinks against the bottle, I pretty much disintegrate into nothing but tingles.  I can honestly say that I have watched this video close to 100 times, and didn't get past the Purr bottle 90% of the time.  It's such a small, short moment, but it has a tremendous effect on my ASMR.  If I am fortunate enough to make it past that moment, the rest of the video doesn't disappoint   Each bottle offers a unique sound, and it complimented by Q.O.S's hand movements and nails.

The fragrance counter role play was the first ASMR video I ever regarded as "perfect."  There's not a misstep, there's tapping, slow movements, changes in light, a wonderful voice, and a few unintentional sounds  that make the intentional video magical.  This is why QueenOfSerene's perfume video holds the top spot in my top 5 intentional videos countdown.


  1. QueenOfSerene is my all time favourite too! Her voice is... OMG. :)

    1. Right?! And she's really sweet and supportive of other content creators. In fact, everyone I have encountered is really great to one another, and I think that's something that makes our little community special.
