    This is the thread starter, first of all I am a guy, second I am from the Middle East, third I am relatively new to female perfumes, and fourth forgive me if your favorite perfume is not on the list, I could only choose 20 and used my own (flawed) judgement.

    I voted for Opium, Samsara, and Givenchy Organza Indecence.

    Like Tigs, I would have voted for Coco (it was the first fragrance that came to mind before I looked at the selection, in fact), but not Coco Mlle. Also would have voted for L by Lolita Lempicka, but not the signature frag.
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    A good list!
    I picked Opium and Angel. I get comments for them; also Armani Sensi, and Ange ou Demon by Givenchy

    I love both No 5 and Chance but wouldn't say either of them are sexy. No 5 is classy and comforting. Chance smells like a unisex scent on me, rather green and bitter. It's perfect.

    Who said that they are ALL the sexiest? Many of them I wear and enjoy in DIFFERENT situations in my life. Others that I enjoy have not been menitoned at all, but then, again, are you planning to be intimate with me any time soon? What's is sexy for me is not necessarily sexy for somebody else. No vote. Sorry.

    That list was compiled from a former thread about sexiest female perfumes, I don't know many of them myself, as a man I like Samsara, Kingdom, Lolita L , Coco Mml and Boudoir..on women of course..sorry to have hit a raw nerve.

    Shalimar has a legendary reputation, and when I started to wear it myself, I soon realised why: it's one of those scents that make men hover around you sheepishly, without a clue of what has happened to them.

    This was especially apparent once when I wore it on a perfectly ordinary day, when I wasn't wearing any make-up and was dressed very casually. I went to a bookshop and complete strangers kept following me around and coming to a sniffing distance, coughing nervously, blushing and taking secret glances. I doubt it was just because of my natural charm, but put the blame on Shalimar!

    Well, well. It's the young upstart NR against classy, old Shalimar.
    Or maybe it's musk vs vanilla.

    1. Shalimar
    2. For Her (even if I've got the feeling that men are more sensitive to this perfume than women)
    3. Mitsuko, Bandit, Opium and Fracas

    My vote went to SHALIMAR. I've received so many compliments on this one over the years, that it really is, to my way of thinking, the sexiest scent I've ever worn. OPIUM comes in at a very close 2nd though, and is another compliment getter!

    my vote is for organza indecence, pretty much my idea of sexy is spicy and a bit sweet. I'd add Parfum Sacre and Theorema as well.

    I must add Flower Bomb by Viktor & Rolf, and Armani Code Pour Femme (any version). Also I want to add Spring Flowers and Love In White by Creed.

    I agree that there are some dependencies. For me, it depends on the clothes and the occasion to match the scent. The scent and the clothes and the entire situation need to be saying the same thing to me. And that can vary in a wide range, between:

    I'm a flower, just for you.

    ...and...

    Show me whatcha got, hot stuff!

    So a floral and a white summer dress may say one thing to me, while a gourmand and a tight slit dress say something completely different. And that doesn't even consider the dimension of sophisticated and the little black dress, versus wild and blue jeans.

    Anyway, afraafra, I think you've got a whole bunch of great suggestions here, but remember that the context is important.

    PS - Shalimar appears to be potent stuff. I'm going to have to get the wife to sample it! (bwa-ha-ha, rubs hands in anticipation)

    Great description!, and so true. there could be a good thread on what constitutes "sexy" in a perfume, and if men's concept of what is sexy on a woman is different to women's concept.

    I'm with Taolady on this one. If I was to vote on what I think many men think might be sexy, it would be on this list. But, for what fragrance makes me feel sexy, that would be completely different and not even on this list. Interesting.
    Furthermore, and admittedly, I don't really understand that word "sexy" anyway. Does it mean makes-you-want-to-have sex? Or, makes-a-person-sexually-attractive-or-alluring? I'm probably being over-analytical as usual, but my opinion is that "sexy" is way overused these days, and that we should all just be good and have fun and be happy and sad and stop trying hard to be sexy (if it means my above guesses). Maybe I'm a prude or uptight? Sorry!! I don't know...I just couldn't help but express myself this morning. I'm quiet now.

    And p.s. No offense meant to our thread starter!!

    I only voted for Hypnotic Poison on this list because that is one scent SO likes a lot and I find sexy too.

    I would have voted for Shalimar and Kingdom too - but the one person whose opinion matters to me regarding "sexy" isn't so keen on these scents.

    He would prefer Giorgio

    Oh yeah - and the bowling boys would add Ava Luxe's Madame X. I wear that and I suddenly get LOTS of attention. Much to the chagrin of the SO.

    Indecence, Opium, Hypnotic Poison, and Kingdom. I love Shalimar, but I don't get a lot of attention from men when I wear it! Boo hoo! Fracas I have been wearing daily this summer, and I don't find it sexy: it is peachy clean on me. In my experience, the scents that make me feel sexy and get lots of sexualized attention are orientals with almond and/or vanilla and animalitic notes.

    I voted for Shalimar, Opium, and Coco Mlle.
    I do find Shalimar and Opium sexy. At least one man has found Shalimar verysexy. I was 19 or 20 and wore Shalimar to work. One of my superiors was passing me in the hall and stopped, turned around and said, "Is that Shalimar?"
    "Uh huh."
    "Hmm. What do you know about Shalimar? I'm going to go to my office..." As if to say, "What do you know about *all that*. Do your parents know you left the house smelling like that?" I don’t think I ever wore it to the office again.
    Didn't notice any men affected by Opium (I wear the parfum mostly). I guess it smells sensuous, but controlled.
    Haven't noticed any reaction to Coco Mlle, and I don't particularly find it sexy myself, but I do imagine it’s a perfume that girls wanting to convey a sexy image would wear...You know, the ones that consider salon visits a necessity, won't leave the house without a full face of makeup, always wear form-fitting (or cleavage revealing) clothing and heels; not necessarily sexy, but stereotypically so. So that’s why it got my vote.
    Coco, now that’s a different story. I definitely would have voted for that one. I smell that and think “home wrecker”. I don’t get any image of what the wearer looks like, but I know I wouldn’t trust her with my man.
    I have Hypnotic Poison, and men seem to like it a lot in my experience. However, it doesn’t register as sexy to my nose, so didn’t get my vote; I find it girlish, which is altogether different than ‘sexy’ in my mind.

    It seems women think perfumes which are spicy/sweet and heavy are sexier, florals seem to have gone out of favor, or limited to when wearing jeans and a tee shirt..?

    It seems flowery perfumes are outvoted by sultry dark oriental scents, maybe the florals are considered more prim and proper than sexy?

    I suppose it depends upon what one's definition of "sexy" is, or, more precisely, what one is told is sexy. Which, as we know, can be anything from a fecal jasmine to baby wipes to wet dog fur.

    Shalimar is an interesting case, because for all its sophistication it leans very heavily towards talcum and babies' bottoms, the newer versions more so than the vintage. Then there is Opium and its mock masculinity and overt, overly lacquered 1970s sexuality, which was of a type that many men found unapproachable and could only admire from a distance.

    It's easier to categorize fragrances as sexual than it is to label them as sexy, although it is interesting to note that Chanel scents wouldn't poll well in either case.

    True. Some of us like vanilla and some of us like chocolate.

    I myself want to change my answer to this poll, because it was an answer based on ignorance! I sampled Bulgari Omnia yesterday, and I absolutely love it and love being in it. And best of all, it doesn't make my husband want to vomit! That makes it a winner in my eyes! (er nose.)

Well, that may mean loser to you, but let me tell you something. Every day when I wake up in the morning, I know it's not going to get any better until I go back to sleep. So I get up. I have my watered-down Tang and my still-frozen Pop Tart. I get in my car with no gas, no upholstery, and six more payments. I fight honking traffic just for the privilege of putting cheap shoes onto the cloven hooves of people like you. I'll never play football like I wanted to. I'll never know the touch of a beautiful woman. And I'll never know the joy of driving through the city without a bag over my head. But I'm not a loser. Because, despite it all, me and every other guy who'll never be what they wanted to be, is out there, being what we don't want to be, forty hours a week, for life. And the fact that I haven't put a gun in my mouth years ago - that little fact makes me a winner, baby." -- Al Bundy, "Married With Children"

    I think at least one person has mentioned Musc Ravageur. To me that is sex in a bottle. Blushingly so. And I think Obsession is quite sexy on the right person. Agree with the many votes for Organza Indecence. How could it be discontinued? So many fans!

    I think there are two categories of sexy, one in prim and proper sense and one in hot intimate sense. Each calls for a different scent

    tigrushka; well two with ten sub-categories for each, what I mean is when you are in a love making situation, Musc Ravageur or Kingdom would amp things up by a factor of ten , whereas, a floral wouldn't, IMO.

    Errr... what I meant was that "two categories of sexy" sounds very limited and limiting indeed.
    No matter what the situation in question is.

    Well how many categories would you say there are? we are not concerned about the exact number but the general idea that basically there are say "social" situations and then there are "intimate" situations and a certain kind of perfume should be used to enhance the mutual enjoyment..this is getting a bit too risqué for this thread I think,

I went to a bookshop and complete strangers kept following me around and coming to a sniffing distance, coughing nervously, blushing and taking secret glances. I doubt it was just because of my natural charm, but put the blame on Shalimar!
    YESSSS! I get you completely. My theory is that Shalimar, with the vanilla, takes the men back to boyhood, into the welcoming kitchen with mom baking cookies. Ah, the nostalgia of that is unbeatable.

    I think spicy is sexy, and voted for Opium and Organza Indecence. I know lots of people think Shalimar is sexy, but I just don't like it (the original). I do like the light version.

    I voted for Opium and Angel. I was surprised to see Shalimar as the most voted scent. I'm curious to smell it - might have to get a sample of it.

    I'm 26 years old. Not young anymore but not mature also. I'm on the threshold. What is a sexy perfume for me?

    It's hard for us 26yo ladies to wear the classic perfumes because they evoke memories of the mothers and this will quickly turn off our boyfriends/fiances. Glad to know we're not dating Oedipus though.

    I voted for ( in poll order) Bandit, Shalimar, Chanel no.5, Kingdom and Opium

    Bandit and Kingdom are nasty sexy
    Shalimar and Opium are lusciously sexy
    Chanel no. 5 is just plain beautiful sexy

    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Oh yes - you're absolutely right! I knew something was missing...L'Heure Bleue is - to me - like a shimmering emerald, most precious, romantic - and most probably all of these traits make The Blue Hour ... sexy?

    I am male and cant beleive that anyone finds Angel sexy.In r eply to th lady who said Bulgaria Omnia is nice cos it doesnt make her husband vomit is right.
    Some of these perfumes that women think as sexy dont do it for men.
    Personally in the older fragrances I would like to add Estee Lauder Cinnabar and Lanvin's My Sin to the sexy perfume list
