The 5 Sexiest Scents Ever

If you’re looking for a sexy new fragrance to wear, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by all the options available at the perfume counter or beauty store. To choose the right fragrance for you, first consider which of the sexiest scents you are looking for: spicy and sweet, floral, vanilla, musk, or lavender. Following is a breakdown of each.


Spicy, sweet scents such as cinnamon, ginger, and frankincense evoke feelings of warmth and comfort. Try Calvin Klein Obsession or Opium by Yves Saint Laurent for a sweet, spicy, and sexy scent, or Ellen Tracy by Ellen Tracy, which has spicy cinnamon top notes.

Floral – a traditional perfume scent – isn’t just for grandmothers. Floral perfumes on the market now range from traditional flower scents to clean, crisp and modern fragrances with fruity or woody base notes. There are even “green” florals with sharp, grassy, or plant-like tones.

Chanel 5 is the quintessential floral perfume. For a fruitier floral, try Calyx by Prescriptives or Sunflowers by Elizabeth Arden. For a woody floral, consider Safari by Ralph Lauren or White Linen by Estee Lauder. Moreover, for a green floral, Fidji by Guy Laroche for Women and Givenchy III are nice options.

Vanilla is a sweet and sultry scent that evokes memories of freshly baked goods in the kitchen. The heavy, sweet scent works well in the wintertime, as it can be a warm contrast to the cold outdoor temperatures. It is considered part of the Oriental category of perfumes.

Try LAVANILA Pure Vanilla or Vanilla Cake Batter by Demeter. For a more exotic blend, consider Laurence Dumont’s Vanille Chocolat.

Lavender has long been associated with love and romance. Cleopatra is said to have seduced both Mark Anthony and Julius Caesar using the scent of lavender. Studies have also shown lavender to be the most arousing scent to men and that it may help with impotence. In present times, lavender is sometimes placed under newlywed couples’ beds to ensure passion.

The calming, sweet scent of lavender is commonly used in perfumes as a top or middle note. Try it out in Lavender (Lavande) by Taylor of London or the Healing Garden Lavender Perfume by Coty.

Consider these choices the next time you’re shopping for a sexy new fragrance.
