    Definitely a YMMV thing. My SWMBO made me wash this off.

    No, the correct answer is Acqua di Gio.

    So with Rose 31 and Aramis Havana being the latest additions to the stable, I thought I'd continue the search! I've sampled 98% of the suggestions in this thread and now I'm looking to try the following.

    Really? Have you tried Midnight in Paris EDP? It has at least 10 out of all the aspects that you listed. Well, at least to my nose and IMO.

    To me, musc ravageur is the sexiest thing I've ever smelled. I have it coming in the mail to me right now. It has a slight urine vibe at the beginning (IMHO) and then dries down into pure sex (but not disgustingly). I have like 6 in your list, so we are on the same wavelength. MKK also has a urine opening (IMO), but dries down to something fresher and sweeter than Ravageur.

    Have you tried TF's Tobacco Vanille? This is sublime, in my opinion. Hope this helps.

    How come nobody mentioned Antaeus?

    It's a godly scent in its own right, and it matches the general gist of what you're looking for.. At the very least, give it a try

    l'Air du Desert Marocain

    My first and only niche that I own a full bottle of.

    Edit: I totally agree with acceptfacts about Gaultier 2.
    If you are confident with the smell, it's the thing you need. Believe me.
    Gaultier 2 IS sex, if you can pull it off.

    Everybody is always talking about Musc Ravageur.
    With good reason.
    But let's not forget French Lover by Frederic Malle.
    For me personally, that one has a sexy vibe.

    Narciso Rodriguez for Him

    A very different fragrance, but elusive...sexy....and not common.

    I wear some of the more common 'complimented' scents - Angel, Le Male, YSL La Nuit, etc.

    This one is quite different but nice.

    It may be that the key to the aphrodisiac nature of perfume is that it works for the wearer's confidence by evoking his or her own sexual urges. Then it might be true that one perfume works for each person; it would be the one that most turns that person on, not the seduction target.

    If that's true, however, everybody's perfect aphrodisiac scent would still be different for each individual... It would be the one that works for that person, which only that person would know or be able to discover.
    Well put. A fragrance Identity so to speak.

    Aventus after 6 hours and mixed with body heat and a touch of sweat. I have been held down and "punished" strictly from this mixture.

    Which one has done the best for you? Or maybe I should ask which do you wear most often?

    I actually wear Rose 31 the most, as it's the most accessible in my opinion. I've actually grown quite fond of Musc Ravaguer again and have started wearing it again more often, especially during romantic occasions.

    can't believe no-one said Gucci envy, I work in a shop with 8 women and this has to be the most complimented and sexy fragrance. Projection is good and is on a similar plane to D&G and other sweet sexy masc scents :-)

    Nice list! I actually have all buy absolute . I did however obtain a sample of the cologne version and did not care for it too much. Is the absolute entirely different scent or just amplified?

    It's quite different, it's got the added animalic funk. This is the Lucky Scent description:

    With its soft blend of balsamic benzoin, honeyed rose and meditative incense, Cologne pour le Soir was intended for cosy dinners and evenings by the fireplace easing into a quiet, tender night. Absolue pour le Soir is its polar opposite: a fragrance for a night on the town.

    While retaining the Cologne’s core accord, Francis Kurkdjian has added a distinctly animalic whiff of cumin and smoky sandalwood; Atlas cedarwood lends its rich, leathery tinge; ylang-ylang fleshes out the floral heart.

    Slightly naughty and totally distinctive, Absolue pour le Soir’s feline sillage, boosted by heated flesh, lasts well past twelve hours. Spritz it on and dance ‘til dawn. Unless you have a better idea...

    I agree with Gucci Envy being a fantastic choice. You can still find it rather easily at a great price. Gucci Envy, Noir de Noir and Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin have been some of the better "sexy" scents I have worn based on women's feedback.

    My mum loves it! Haven't worn it in a romantic setting yet to be honest. I did actually spray some on a girl last night in fact and she really liked it. She preferred Musc Ravaguer though on both myself AND her
