    Default Advice for sensual, seductive fragrance

    Hello fellow members,

    Let me start with a little introduction who i am. I'm a 21 year old Dutchman, looking out for a new fragrance to buy! In the past i had a good experience with the following fragrances; L'eau d'Issey by Issey Miyake, Scotch and Soda's Barfly and Guerlain Homme.

    Even though i liked these fragrances a lot, they were all overruled by the citrus-note, and this time i'm looking for a more woody fragrance.

    It's kind of hard to describe, but i'm looking for a more sensual, seductive kind of fragrance. I go out a lot and love being a little flirty around women, so i'm looking for a fragrance that's some sort of teasing.

    I believe i've smelled Terre d'Hermès or Eau d'Hermès once and it worked quite well on my skin aswell! But before i'm buying anything new. I'm wondering what your opinion is.

    Thanks in advance!

    Sensual seductive fragrances don't exist. Just a tactic used by consumerist magazines and PUA blogs.

    I beg to differ, I think you can definitely have a scent that gives off sensual & seductive vibe. Now like how everyone loves to keep reiterate when even the slight hint of the topic comes up, there is no "pantydropper", but certain scents can definitely add to the vibe / mood / image that you're projecting. Scents by itself is not gonna get you anywhere, but matched right with personality /setting & mood it can certainly help add to the social interaction.

    Anyhow enough with the rant lol, I'd say check out MDCI ambre topkapi, frapin 1270, Dior Homme Intense, and creed aventus. I think Clive Christian X for men fits in this category as well. Depends really on the specific type of seductive type you're going for. Maybe also check out Histories de Parfume's 1969 and 1725 Casanova

    I agree. Wear the fragrance. Don't let the fragrance wear you. However, TdH is a very good fragrance that you should try.

    Totally disagree with this. You don't think there is such a thing as a seductive fragrance? Of course your fragrance isn't going to do all the work for you, but I think wearing the right one can definitely stack the odds in your favor.

    Op, I recommend you try Dior Homme.

    Jivehippo: Maybe fragrance will do like 2% of the work, but she has to find you physically and emotionally attractive first. No exceptions to that. It's like wearing a nice tie or a good watch. It improves your presentation, but it won't increase sexual attraction.

    Yes, there are cases where women say a fragrance on a man smells so sexy, but that's because she is deeply attracted to the man first.

    But doesn't the way one presents his or herself have a lot to do with sexual attraction?

    People are very visual creatures. In the initial stages of attraction, emotionality/personality counts for almost nothing, since often times no words have been spoken.

    Your scent plays a large part as well. Think about your food preferences, no matter how delicious something looks, if the aroma isn't appealing, you're not going to be interested in the food. The same thing applies to fragrance.

    These kind of suggestions bug me. Did you even read the the opening post? This is a young 21 year old guy who isn't a 'fraghead'; just a regular consumer looking for advice, and you're recommending MDCI & Clive Christian??? lol.

    Some realistic recomendations would be Dior Homme/Intense, Van Cleef & Arpels Midnight in Paris, Gucci pour homme II

    What is this now ? A sensual seductive fragrance thread and no mention of Aventus as of yet. Have the Aventus posse taken a late New Year break or something?. lol....
    To the young gent who posed the qst . Listen to the advice given here ok. As most of us have asked that same qst before. The answer is that there is no one magic potion out there ready to transform you into an instant sure hit in your romantic goals. Rather, think of your fragrance as something that must work for you first and foremost. When it does, you will exude natural confidence and feel comfortable with yourself. That is what works. The power of the scent to make you feel good.
    Think of it as going to a bakery and smelling a wonderful aroma at the door. Then you venture in and are greeted and welcomed by the owner. You will probably like to stay. If you went in and were greeted by a surly sad individual . Chances are you would not stay very long. So in effect, fragrance opens the door for you. But it does none of the talking.

    Dunno, I thought if i were in his shoes, when I was 21 i wished people would have told me what i suggested, instead of wasting money on things like polo blue, haha. And yes i did read his initial post, and it seems like he has pretty good taste judging that he got some stuff from scotch and soda (a brand that i wear regularly.). I figured that if he goes out to meet the ladies often and has several bottles, he may be able to stretch his budget to buy a really nice sexy & seductive smelling bottle, or even just getting some samples. I know as poor as i was in college i was able to scrounge up a few hundred by working more when i wanted to buy something nice for myself.

    I'd say most of the scents i suggested are actually pretty safe scents that the mainstream public wouldn't have issues with, they smell good aren't too polarizing (I would have suggested things like M7 & Serge Lutens otherwise). In particular MDCI ambre topkapi is a very safe scent most can appreciate, and since he likes woods and citrus and needs something sensual and sexy i thought it totally fits the bill. (btw if you want to get MDCI, order samples directly from them @ http://parfumsmdci.free.fr/index.php...=en&page&id=82. you can get multiples of one type, and then the money you put in for the samples goes towards your final bottle should you want to purchase. much better deal for $/ml IMO. (you get 60ml's of juice for a little over $100). Clive christian X for men is expensive no doubt but @ $350 it is no more expensive than a bottle of aventus, and in my experience both of these are as close as you get to a "panty dropper", women seem to dig the smell a lot.

    I did suggest DHI, but MiP & GPHII are pretty good suggestions though~ lol

    The idea of a "magic potion" is one propagated by the fragrance industry. It is the man or woman who is appealing, and the scent only adds to the package.

    That sticky is full of members who want that special scent that will make him a chick magnet. Just look at all those ads for Axe/Lynx that play off of this notion.

    A jerk wearing, say, Tobacco Vanille, is just a jerk wearing Tobacco Vanille. He can be wearing Clive Christian, Xerjoff, JAR or Amouage and still any perceptive woman would steer clear of him. Just as a jerk in a bespoke suit is just that: a jerk in a bespoke suit. All the best tailoring in the world won't disguise he is a jerk. Ditto for his car, his jewellery, etc.

    If a man is truly sensual--which comes from who he is inside--he can seduce without any fragrance at all. It's in his smile and gaze, his intellect, sophistication, worldliness and wit. I guess if you are after a shallow woman who is only turned on by a man's fragrance, then go for it!

    Seduction begins in the mind and does not come out of a bottle.

    I would venture some pleasant and elegant scents are Ormonde Jayne Orris Noir, Habit Rouge EDP or parfum, Mouchoir de Monsieur or Caron's Narcisse Noir.

    Terre d'Hermes in the parfum is the best.

    While I love DHI and Back to Black...to me, I FEEL "sexy and seductive" when I wear them...they receive very little attention from the ladies when I wear them. My wife likes to sit in a room with me when I wear BtB, but not be close.

    The two frags that have worked well for me:
    1) Tom Ford for Men Extreme = By far, the frag that has scored me the most comments. I was told once while wearing it that I "smell like a Man, with a capital M."
    2) Noir de Noir = I put this on, my wife can't stay away from me. I like it well enough, but she L-O-V-E-S it. It's a rose-scented frag, but it has some deep notes to it that keep my interest...but like I said, it's a hit with my wife.

    This one is very good but do not overspray it. I got sick from the smell after having it consistantly entering my nostrils for 8 hours...

    For sheer guts, try Histoires de Parfums 1740 Marquis de Sade.

    Immortelle/everlasting flower (elemi) gives a tobacco vibe and the leather is smooth and deep. The top notes have a mild boozy feel.

    Notes: bergamot and davana sensualis; patchouli coriander and cardamom; cedar, elemi, leather and labdanum.

    You won't smell remotely close to anyone that any girl has ever smelled before. Distinct and alluring. Works like a charm.

    Caron's Parfum Sacre.

    This is a fabulous incense that is warm and spicy: black pepper, rose, chocolate wood, myrrh, spice, florals, vanilla and musk.
