    Default Sexy Youthful Frags

    That's exactly what I want to smell like. . . Young Hot and Sexy!

    Any suggestions?

    Young hot and sexy has nothing to do with perfume in my opinion. It's all attitude. Feel it= be it.

    Perhaps go to a nightclub and ask the kids with fake ID what their perfume. Or follow some hot young things as they go through Sephora sniffing......no offense to fans of these scents, but I'm guessing for laydees it will be the likes of Miss Dior Cherie, Light Blue, the reams of RALPH frags, Brittany Spears and any number of fruity candy confections that are out right now.

    Vera Wang Rock Princess - if I was 30 years younger, I'd wear it! Nicely dark drydown. More rocky than princess, in fact!

    and

    Twice sexy (+1 very), young, hot. Lovely is a bonus.

    Jessica Simpson's Fancy seems very popular right now. I'm loving Kate Moss' Kate (rose + patchouli + musk) and Lilly Pulitzer's Squeeze (citrussy + floral + musky woods). They're both youthful, but I don't suppose they're very hot and sexy. I hope you get some more suggestions. It might be a good idea to go to a Sephora at a mall and ask for suggestions. That's what I would do (old lady here). When I want to know the name of a pop artist(s) whose song I've been liking, I always ask the young wait staff at restaurants or the younger people sitting at the bar. They always know and they're always glad to tell me. Anyway, good luck!

    Hear ,hear. I like smelling like an 'old lady ' too !

    However if you must be young hot and sexy( I guess there are occasions ! ) - try Coco mademoiselle or Hypnotic Poison .

    I have both and enjoy them.

    I also think Bandit fits in here as well and I have it but never know when to wear it for fear of smelling like a weed-head!

    I don't know many weed-heads myself but I don't think Bandit is much associated with that (I thought it was patchouli, musk and incense ). If you find it sexy and youthful and hot just wear it in good health. I doubt it will make you look high.

    I think that there are many young women out there with the attitude it takes to be sexy...but, most frags deemed "youthful" these days seem to me to be the very opposite of sex....it's all candy and soap and sharp citrus in the current "young" scents, and I associate notes like musk, leather, and woods with a sensual fragrance.

    If you are young yourself, you don't need your fragrance to be "youthful" for you...I actually think there is something so intriguing about a young person wearing a vintage or niche scent that sets them apart from the crowd. A lovely 20-something in Angel is just another lovely 20-something in Angel, but a lovely 20-something in Chanel No. 5 seems sophisticated and interesting for the difference....

    I have to chime in here and add to 3xasif and mysticknot that most "young" fragrances are all "pinky--girly" and do not appeal to sensual charm of a mature woman. It seems like we are going down the trail of "old lady" again.

    I like the sensual charm of smelling like an "old lady."

    What this all boils down to is attitude...how you carry yourself, not which scent you wear...that will make you a man-magnet. (The courtesans of old proved this time and time again.) Confidence in who you are...not playing anyone else's game...that is the ultimate in sexy.

    If you *had* to buy a "young, sexy" scent, go for Coco Mademoiselle.

    Hard to come up with something, as what I associate with sexy (very few), I also associate with "womanly", therefore older. Coco parfum is def sexy to me. Opium Secret or parfum is kind of sexy too, but there again.. Maybe just a young person wearing on of those two fragrances? I would also get the impression she was ballsy too, and that would add to the sexy vibe.


    Or try Nina (the new one). That is the closest I can think of to smelling sexy AND young. It got the fruity/gourmand thing I associate with young, but the wood/'chouli I associate with grown and sexy. I guest Coco Mlle fits here as well.


    Or Fleur de Narcisse. There is an unfettered, natural sexiness to it. A self-possessed but sexually free-spirited and naive vibe that puts it somewhere in the middle of the suggestions above. It's not as calculated as either Coco or Nina; not as knowing as Opium.

    Probably not an association with those who use, I'd agree that would be patch/incense. Bandit (EDP anyway) actually smells like fresh pot, not yet burned. At least that's what came to mind upon application the last time I had a bottle.

    Yes it's expensive and yes it's really for the guys, but

    rocks! My French penfriend used to wear it well and got lots

    Oh, oh...I remembered. My aunt is neither of these things (young, hot or sexy) but she seems to like perfumes that say that. At least that's what she told me. The ones she liked at one time or another are: Coco Mlle, Hypnose, Addict, Miracle and Miracle Forever, Bulgari Femme. Also Angel and her all time favourite Tresor. Her latest infatuation is Rochas Femme but I don't think it really fits.

    Yep, I think this is the kind of response she's looking for. I'm not sure that what I find sexy (Habanita, Bal a Versailles) is what young hot sexy things out there would find sexy. I'm curious myself. What kind of scents do people in their 20's & 30's find sexy now? My mother had a young man (early 20's? late teens?) follow her at a mall to ask her what gorgeous fragrance she was wearing. He was enraptured by it. It was Mahora, which almost everybody hates, and which is discontinued now. I suppose it's still subjective, whatever the age.

    LOL- funny, the scents that grab the most compliments for me are my "classics". I think Vent Vert is all around winner for getting men to say "mmm what is that gorgeous perfume".

    Well I'm young AND sexy (in my very humble opinion of course haha) and I disagree that someone isn't sexy just because they happen to like 'girlie' or 'fruity' scents I think that's actualy a pretty narrow-minded opinion.

    Perfumes that are popular with 'young' friends of mine include YSL Baby Doll, Coco Mademoiselle, Miss Dior Cherie and Juicy Couture - all of which I think are lovely

    I agree with this. It's subjective, really. A sexy person is still sexy whatever scent they wear.

    Actually, I quite clearly went out of my way to NOT say this. A person is sexy or not, sophisticated or not, youthful or not independent of their fragrance. But, when the fragrance is evaluated independent of the person wearing it, generally speaking a fruity, fresh scent is not as evocative of sex as is a musk or leather.

    I own both baggy flannel pjs and a white linen sailor dress. Neither outfit is even remotely sexy, and yet I'm still a hot mama when wearing them, if I do say so myself. Fragrance works much the same way, whether a flannel PJ scent (Pink Sugar) or a white linen sailor dress scent (Tommy Girl).

    I think your idea of finding a unique, stand-out scent is an excellent one! And, as a young, active woman, you can safely play with unusual niche and vintage notes and make it seem fresh and unique, not old and stale.

    Offhand, I recommend:

    Mitsouko
    Coco (the original, the Mlle version is not that unique these days!)
    Ava Luxe No 23
    Ormond Woman
    Chanel Cuir de Russie
    Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan OR Feminite de Bois OR Cedre....I likey the Serge.

    There are some vintage ones there, others are brand spanking new niche scents...all contain notes that are not wildly trendy now, so you won't smell like every other girl at the club or the University Library or the park or wherever you are!
    Do you think "Old Lady Perfume" is a compliment? Join the Scent of an Old Woman Social Group and chat in-depth about vintage and classic fragrances!

    Annick goutal's Petite Cherie and Coco Mademoiselle makes me think sexy and youthful when I catch a whiff of it eminating from some hot young thing....but, that might just be b/c of the association :/

    I guess it is also important who you would like to perceive you as young, sexy etc. If the answer is yourself, then no one can tell you what to wear, only you can decide. If it is other people, I am afraid there is no unique answer, not even as general as some notes or perfume groups. As you can see from the answers, everyone seems to have a different view of a sexy perfume. In fact, I am pretty sure we have different views on "sexy". My guess is that some (younger?) people might associate "sexy perfume" with the perfume they smelled on many young, hot, sexy girls. Could be Pink Sugar or Bath and Body Works or whatever. Others might have specific and various ideas:leather is sexy, or vanilla is sexy, vintage chypre is...
    Personally I find sweet, heavier, vanillic perfumes quite sexy. My husband (32) finds Shalimar, Addict, Blue Amber, pretty much all vanilla scents disgusting and "food like". Obviously not sexy!
    My point is it's impossible to find a scent that will please everyone. And as someone said before, if you are all those things, any perfume you wear and enjoy will be perceived as pretty nice!

    As everyone is saying, it's all how you feel about certain frags on yourself, and what you associate them with. I feel sexy (and hot, etc) in:

    FM Carnal Flower
    SL Chergui
    Piguet Baghari
    SL Un Lys
