    MPG George Sand is somewhere between Bal a Versailles and Amouage Jubilation 25.
    BaV just has too much civet for me but GS and J#25 are among my top holy-grail sensuous frags.

    Black Cashmere of all things makes me feel sexy.

    Tabac Blond is another.

    All kinds of scents are sexy on certain days. The weather, my mood, my clothes, my plans... the right fit will feel sexy.

    Great recs from everyone!

    My top picks are:
    Chanel No 5 Elixir Sensuel
    Mitsouko
    Ambre Sultan (very sensual indeed!) If I'm not wearing it, sometimes make DH wear it!

    Bal a Versailles: Never really considered this one for a hot moment, but now I'm thinking it might just do the job. MMMMMMMM. Pondering. Yes, it is definitely dirty enough!

    oddly Mitsouko makes me feel incredibly sexy I know it is an old lady perfume but I just feel amazingly sensual when I wear it

    This is an interesting topic.

    Much as I love perfume, wearing perfume or smelling my husband's perfume does not make me feel sexy. My husband and I both seem to find the natural smell of our partner to be more sexy than any perfume.

    To feel sexy, I would put on
    Bulgari Black
    Bulgari Blu Notte
    L'Instant pour Homme
    Gucci by Gucci
    or even Miel de Bois.

    Ooooh I love that description hang on I'll get the whip out ....ahem.

    Our big Debenhams used to to do Agent Provocateur, but haven't seen it for a while. House of fraser does it but not seen strip in there, maybe it was a limited edition or something?

    I'm definitely after Maitresse though.........

    G. Sand is fantastic, IMO. Just make sure you get the one made by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier, not the other Parfum Historiques. It's very confusing.

    Thierry Mugler Angel is super sexy... I like it specifically for nighttime. It's sweet and a bit musky, you only need to use a little as it's quite potent. I've had tons of compliments on it!

    Kai perfume oil is a boutque brand I found in the US that's quite popular there, its light and really good for daytime. My little secret :-) Not sure where to find it in the UK!!

    Delrae Amoureuse - definitely a bombshell fragrance with its big flowers and animalics

    Bal a Versailles - particularly in extrait

    Tabac Blond - ditto

    Rochas Femme - the updated version with cumin (haven't yet tried the vintage, though I'm dying to)

    Kingdom - another one with cumin (I'm noticing a trend)

    Fracas - 'nuff said.

    Apparently, according to research (which I can't be bothered to dig up now, but read about recently), the perfumes that make us feel most attractive/comfortable/sexy are closest to our "own smell". We choose them because we want to advertise and amplify, rather than to mask. Not sure if there have been many studies on this, or just the one, but if that's the case, it makes me think of my choices. (Should have added Balahe on my list; it's been such a recent re-acquisition that I'm still getting used to wearing it, but I definitely get a sexy vibe from it).

    That IS interesting! I must smell closest to a salty rose. Trying Gres Cabaret, for example, was a revelation for me because I felt so "at home" in it. Hmmm...

    In order of sexiness:
    Black Cashmere (husband LOVES this on me...so obviously it makes me feel attractive...)
    Shocking
    JLo Glow
    Tabac Blond (depending on mood)

    Definitely not Ambre Sultan. I don't get what's sexy about that one at all, I have to steel myself to wear it, and then only sparingly because it's so heavy. But each to his/her own eh?

    Well, rather serendipi... err, LUCKILY, the first lecture at today's perfumers' symposium was by the guy who did the research I mentioned! Will post about it on here when I feel less braindead. But yes, essentially, what I said above can be concluded from the studies. We apparently choose the scent to amplify our natural body odour rather than to mask it.

    I'd say that the fact of putting on a fragrance pretty much makes me feel sexy ...

    That said my natural body scent must be ambery since I'd take amber (or at least amber dry down) over anything. Good to know ;-)

    Thank you for mentioning this fascinating research. When you have time, I'd love to know the source. The fact that I can't tolerate animalics seems strange because that's what we (as animals) secrete/excrete...although not in the usual synthetic form found in modern 'fumies. So much has to do with perception, eh?

    As for the Ambre Sultan, I finally acquired some. The heavy ambery musk was a no go for me, but curiously, my husband quite liked it! I gave the sample to him and told him to enjoy it when I'm working the night shift :-)

    What makes me feel sexy varies depending on my mood that particular day In general though, I would say:
    -Fracas
    -Nu edp
    - Shalimar
    -Hypnotic Poison
    -Angel
    - Narciso Rodriguez For Her
    and finally Musc Ravageur. No particular order.

    Sometimes Coco or 31 Rue Cambon throw me a sexy sort of feel!

    edit: Forgot to add Shocking! (it's civet-sexy)
    Hey ubu - I'm right there with you on Bal a Versailles - it elicited a very passionate comment one time...and thereafter I've always felt it was the sexiest frag I own. Otherwise, my list is: Chanel Coco, AG Ce Soir ou Jamais (with that little naughty skank in the base), Guerlain Vol de Nuit, and Caron Montaigne. VdN and Montaigne both have that dark, dirty daffodil/narcissus accord that always makes me feel like I'm standing next to a very sexy man.

    Okay, for those who are interested:

    The first lecture at the symposium yesterday was by Craig Roberts from University of Liverpool. The Economist published a media-tarted version of some of his stuff.

    I always get comments (men and women) when I wear Coco Mademoiselle.

    Men seem to like Calvin Klein Summer 2005...

    Personally, I like "Maitresse" by Agent Provocateur, Kelly Caleche and 24, Faubourg by Hermes.

    I, as a man, feel sexy wearing the scents that come closer to female side.

    The Androgynous ALWAYS stimulates the sexuality. Maybe subconsciously, maybe consciously.

    Particularly Gaultier2 is the one that i feel most sexy.

    Fracas, Samsara, Alien & lntense Tiare make me feel the most sexy, in the sense that they seem to increase my awareness of my feminine power, if that makes any sense! My bf went crazy for Allure when l tried it on my skin. lf he remembers to buy it for me for Christmas, we could be in for some interesting times!
