Which perfume do you find especially sexy?
Is there a scent that you find very erotic?
Which perfumes makes you feel sensual?
What a question today! I can be sure to draw all kinds of unwanted Google traffic with this post. For that I have to thank a friend of mine who asked me what perfume she should wear to a date with a long-lost love she is meeting again after years of separation. She wants to look and smell her very best. Aside from a new wardrobe, she wants to invest in a perfume that “makes him want to be close to me almost against his better judgement”.
My first thought would be something soft, fuzzy, warm that wears close to the skin, a bit gourmand, because in my experience men often like that and irrestistibly good. You don’t want to wear too much of anything, it should whisper not scream and it can’t be controversial in the least. I would never wear something that could be a turn-off for the other person, only because my used-to-smell-almost-everything-nose likes it. As much as I love Aftelier Tango or Vero Profumo Onda, I would apprehensive to wear them in such a situation, where I want to make sure my perfume is inviting and nothing but.
One very sensual perfume for me is Frapin 1697, another Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan in very small doses, maybe also Musc Ravageur… I can also imagine a gourmand being very inviting like Réglisse Noire, Gourmand Coquin or Xerjoff Casamorati Lira.
I want to make sure that my friend finds a perfect scent and we both hope for your help. I also will definitely ask her date later on what he thought (I know him too).
So, what do you say? What is your advice? What are your favorites?
