The sexiest scents

Sexy smells

Sexy is a state of mind. It’s how you feel just as much as how you look. So many little things can make us feel more or less sexy including fragrance. Some perfumes make you feel sweet, some make you feel refreshed and some give you that little extra swagger. We’re here to talk the swagger kind, the kind that brings your sexy back.

Frederic Malle Carnal Flower

($215)

The name tells you right off the bat that this is no shy floral. Mr. Malle calls tuberose, "These pretty flowers that exude a mixture of flower shop like freshness and carnal opulence." So it's carnal and it's French. What more do you need to know? Perhaps you should know that the big hit of tuberose is accompanied by the tropical coconut overtones that often come with it. Then a little musk is added in and you've got date night down pat. Just make sure he's worth this sultry beauty.

Thierry Mugler Angel

($78)

Yes, this was the iconic scent of the '90s, but it's still very much here. In fact, it's even been updated to include a slightly more subdued EDT version. But the original is what we're talking here. That big mix of vanilla, chocolate and liquor that is so bold, sexy and unique. Angel is a night fragrance if there ever was one. It's gets you noticed and is not for the shy. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it definitely oozes sex appeal.

Tom Ford Violet Blonde

($100)

Tom Ford knows sexy and his newest scent is no exception. It's an opulent scent that warms up on skin, is loud and proud yet never overpowering. Wear this if you're feeling confident or want to put yourself in that frame of mind. There are no wallflowers here.

Dior Addict

($98)

Smoky vanilla, bourbon, Bulgarian rose and the elusive Queen of the Night Flower make for va-va-voom and a mysterious smelling oriental fragrance. He'll want to get close and see what you're made of. This bottle says dark and sexy, not sweet and girly.

Chanel Allure Sensuelle

($85)

An oriental blend of spices, vanilla and cool iris that is just as the name says -- sensual. The vanilla lies low here, but mixes lovingly with the spices of sandalwood, patchouli and frankincense. They are the hallmark of this oriental perfume that wraps you in a luxurious embrace. This is sophisticated sexy -- the kind that is full of class and can go anywhere. Not simply for evening wear.

Narciso Rodriguez for Her Musc Collection Intense

($65)

A heady companion to the well-loved original Narciso for Her. Floral notes of orange blossom and jasmine lead to a mix of seductive Egyptian musk and amber. It's a sexy scent that stays close to the skin and smells like you but better. He'll need to get extra close to get a whiff, but that also means it's soft enough to be appropriate for day.
