Whenever people mention Musc Ravaguer, "sex" or "sexy" is often the adjective used to describe what is smells like. I have also seen the term used for MKK and Kouros. But what does sexy mean in relation scents? and what makes one scent sexy in relation to another?
I've had sex once or twice in my time and there is no fragrance (that i'm aware of) that smells like a room that's hosted the beast with 2 backs. There are many fragrances i've smelt on woman that has made me want to sniff them all day, but in relation to sex or sexiness, it's the woman and not the perfume that has turned me on.
Is it the same as using the word "sport(y)" to describe a scent? (although it seems sport is another term for citrus)
can someone show me the light...or should that be the dark and dirty?
Whatever its consumer and/or its target audience perceive as sexy, I actually think it's that special combination between beauty, attractiveness, class, freshness, cleanliness, energy and many more other features more easily described through olfactory notes than in words
Different people perceive different things as sexy. Someone prefer big boobs, someone big asses, someone long legs etc . Same with fragrances. For example:
Majority of basenoters do not perceive Acqua Di Gio to be sexy but majority of women do.
Some basenoters perceive Kouros as sexy and some women do (but majority do not).
I personally find to be sexy sweet and spicy scents. I know that many women do too, but many do not. So there is not universal answer what is sexy. It is always relative. Sexy for "someone" - sexy for you, sexy for your girlfriend, sexy for your mother, etc.
Also scent have to click with wearer, e.g. Kouros can smell sexy on masculine guy but rather funny on those with feminine traits.
Current TOP 5:
1. Gucci Pour Homme II
2. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
3. Dior Homme Intense
4. Encre Noire
The wearer, but some muscs help a lot too!
What makes smelly trainers sexy to some people? Some scents just are sexy to different people for different reasons. I think if anybody knew exactly what is sexy to a vast majority of people they certainly would use it to sell their colognes. Some might consider animalic smells sexy, some cosy vanilla pudding with chocolate sauce, others ultra fresh aquatics, etc.
If you look at this question as a psychology experiment is set up then there would have to be variables in place that would make the individual correlate sex with a smell. For the act of sex itself if you put a bowl of oranges by your bed everytime you had sex more than likely everytime you or your sexual partner smelled oranges you'd think of sex. Could also not be the act of sex itself, but something that reminds you of kissing. Someone's breath that would chew cinnamon gum.
People could also associate the smell of leather if they get into S&M (freak show!), sun tan oil (hot women on the beach in bikinis), and the most universal smell is sweat because that's what our bodies are told to do during sex. I'm not talking about Body Odor because that's something completely different and can be good or extremely bad.
So what your trying to guess is if a woman finds fragrances in general sexy or specifically which one. About the only way to know that is to ask the woman if her sexual partners wore fragrance and if so which one was her favorite. It could be the best smelling fragrance in the world, but if it reminds a woman of a bad sexual experience it ain't gonna happen for ya!

The person wearing it, of course. Perfume is just a detail that does not amount to anything per se; sexiness will def depend on the rest of the factors.
...and MFK Absolue pour le Soir, right? LOL
It was the thread above (as well as other comments) which prompted this one. A lot of people have suggested "the person wearing it", but fragrances have sex attributed to them regardless of the wearer.
have a look at some esteemed youtube reviewers (if you can be bothered)

They all make some kind of reference to sex when describing MR
I've noticed people will often attribute "sexiness" to any fragrance that has a well balanced animalic warmth to it.
depends on how horny you are ...

"A beautiful fragrance to the nose is like good jazz music to the ears, great food to the mouth, and Megan Fox and Jessica Alba to the eyes..."
a very relative answer to such a question
and I don't think the answer is that straight forward

It is the art of stimulating as many senses from the 5 :
The sight: looking good ,sexy body and well dressed.
The Hearing,and then the smell .If all the previous 3 are good then you will have the urge to taste her.
You are right guys, but I swear - Chanel Coco EdP is the fragrance driving me crazy even if I spray it in the air.
No wearer, me so horny
I want to add that something in Perry 360 Red along with Tommy Bahama Original has a slight "sex smell" to it. I know, these are not considered dirty type scents, more like the complete opposite but whatever.
Could it be the "calone" ingredient? Weird because if you smell it up close you don't get it. But it is a thickness that I only notice at the 1-2 foot from the source of your spray. It may be what people refer to as "animalic". But anyway, I do get something that reminds me of a room where the deed has just happened in.
"You do not merely want to be considered just the best of the best. You want to be considered the only ones who do what you do." J.G.
The confidence it gives the wearer.
As long as it smells nice, its not so much the scent itself that makes it sexy or not, but how its worn. If I can smell your pretty perfume from half a block away, that is not sexy. But if I am in your personal space, and just get fleeting whiffs of what you are wearing, making me want to get closer and try to smell more of it, then that is sexy.
Animalic notes, "Warm" aromas, strong sillage, and OAKMOSS.
