5 Sexy Scents for Seduction! 2013

Hey Hey Y’All,

One of the things that I sometimes get asked is, “Which perfume should I wear to get lucky?” The short answer is the sweet smell of success and happiness. Of course, sometimes romance needs a little push or maybe we need to smell a certain way to have the confidence to create the opportunity. I have a few frags in my weaponry that I like to wear when being noticed in the right way is important. You also need to have a bit of strategy too. What kind of person do you want to smell like? Here are 5 types and fragrances to go with them. Remember, this is all in fun, it’s not just about the way you smell that’s going to hook your intended but it might just be the final push they need…….

Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche 2010 Estee Lauder FragranticaPhoto Stolen Fragrantica

1: Having a ball with my friends: Bronze Goddess by Estée Lauder

I have the 2010 version of Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche but they are all a fun holiday tropical type spritz that is extremely pretty, has good sillage and projection and they last well too. Coconut and/or jasmine seem to be the standout notes in the whole set and it’s the kind of carefree summery scent that smells like you are out for fun and an uncomplicated, happy, breezy person ready for what ever the night holds.

2: I may look a bit uptight but underneath…..: CHANEL No 19

This is a good old fashioned beauty. The cool, crisp snap of a green fragrance at once aloof and haughty. You want to smell like an ice king/queen that needs a bit of thawing. That iris undercut by warm woods and leather, all frost and fire will keep your partner a little off balance till you want to show them the way. CHANEL No 19 is a wonderful back straightener and focus fragrance if you need to feel in control of the situation while waiting to exhale.

3: I am a soft silken dove: DIOR La Collection Couturier Parfumeur Milly-la-Foret

Sometimes being quietly, tastefully understated is the best way to get someone to come close and stay there. That first waft as they come in close to you could be the clincher. Milly-la-Foret is a beautiful soft musky powder, it’s there but only up close, and it smells so good and expensive, a winner. So soft and light that it will give an impression of fragility yet if you sniff a bit closer you can tell it’s real quality and perfectly at peace. Milly-la-Foret is the scent of success and the contented wind down after the celebration parties.

Trouble Boucheron FragranticaPhoto Stolen Fragrantica

4: If you grab this there will be all sorts of: Trouble by Boucheron

Trouble is one of my all time favourite siren scents. Sweet jasmine over a hefty amber base. This is the scent of a heartbreaker, and men go crazy for it. You can find Trouble at the discounters but soon it will be all gone, it’s getting harder and harder to find for a reasonable price. Slated by Turin/Sanchez but a fabulously outrageous and over the top fragrance that will certainly bring you attention. Smells especially great on the men, believe it.

Le Male Jean Paul Gaultier Fragrantica

5: Seriously seeking physical attentions, all offers considered: Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier

This smells so good I follow people around in venues that wear it just to catch an errant whiff. Le Male is the most sensual, engaging and stridently sexual scent I know on both sexes. Ignore the ad spiel ladies, Le Male is killer on everyone and in today’s age of scentless fragrant wash you will stand out like dogs balls, ready to be licked. Be careful when you spritz Le Male, you may need security guards. Looking for action, then this is your choice.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this fun look at how to smell for seduction. Fragrance does not care who wears it, never be mislead by the advertising copy or who a fragrance is aimed at. If they smell good, wear them. Cross the gender divide,you’ll be glad you did,

What are your special seduction fragrances? Please add to the list in the comments. Share your hard won knowledge please.

See you tomorrow,

    Thanks for this list, Portia! I’m going to get out the 19. Haven’t worn it for a long time. I’ve been wanting to try Bronze Goddess and Le Male. I’ll try to get a hold of some Trouble too.

    Seduction scents? Well I could include my new discovery, Anat Fritz Tzora, but realistically that might only be for attention and not seduction. If tuberose is your thing I think I would recommend the EDP of Versace Blonde (not too much of it ,though, could suffocate the intended). I have a couple of nameless test fragrance oils, one with indonesian oud and civet and the other with the same oud, jasmine (I think grandiflora) and amber, both gentle, come hither fragrances. The list also includes Annick Goutal Grand Amour, Ellen Covey’s Elektra and my old stand by vintage Fidji, which I wear just to make me feel happy and sexy!

      Hey Azar!!
      Blonde is one of my ALL TIME FAVES! Grand Amour and Electra are also in my collection, though Electra is called Midsummer’s Day Dream. We have some definite scent twin action going on here.

    Mine are Vero Profumo Rubj edp and Ormonde Jayne Orris Noir! Frederic Malle Lys Mediterranee and Ormonde Jayne Frangipani probably get me more attention, but the first two are the ones I think of as seductive. I need to go check out your list now!

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      I have a Rubj EdP here still in its plastic awaiting a suitable Opening Ceremony. I’m glad you mentioned it today to remind me Anatu13. I love Lys Mediterranee too.

    Jean Desprez’ Bal a Versailles. Seduction all the way. Whenever I wear it I feel fabulous.

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      OMG!! How did I leave Bal A Versailles off this list, Damn. You are so right. I have a vintage cologne version that knocks my socks off every time. I imagine it would work for paramours pants too.

    Rubj is on my list for seductive scents. That’s one hubby and I both like. Scents that make me feel seductive are not usually the same ones that he is attracted to.
    Once again you made me laugh til I cried with your description of Le Male standing out like dog balls waiting to be licked. That might be one of your best lines ever. You rock!

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      Thank you Poodle. I can’t take complete author-ship though, that is an Australianism that I have added waiting to be licked to.

    Bal A Versailles in vintage EDP form is one of those perfumes that is not quite all out skank but pretty damn close. Nasattamo(sp?) Nuda just like MKK can be great for full on skank. Sarrasins and Mitsouko make you work for it but both are worth it.

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      I have also an unopened bottle of Nuda. One day I will get around to everything in my collection, one day.

    Great list Miss P! Love how you haven’t gone for the usual suspects here. For me, Lady Vengeance …..

  7. RuthF says:

    Going out tonight and have doused my husband in Trouble, smells amazing on him!

  8. Undina says:

    I do not wear perfumes as a seduction aid but there are two perfumes that smell seductive for me when my vSO wear them – Terre d’Hermes and Tom Ford Tuscan Leather.

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      I am with you all the way with Terre d’Hermes but still on the fence with Tuscan Leather Undina. i think I need to spend some time with Jin wearing it. he He He,

    This reminded me that I had a sample of Milly-la-Foret hanging around that I hadn’t tried yet. Now I may be in love with its quiet calm beauty. Thanks for a very fun and informative post!

    • australianperfumejunkies says:

      Hey Nemo,
      How lovely is it. When I wear it even I want to get closer to its powdery, snuggly goodness.
