    This is one of those "it's impossible to generalize" questions.

    People are individuals, and last time I checked, women are people...

    Yes, in my experience, citrus is by far the one - especially orange and bergamot.

    If you smell fresh and clean, that will work far more often than when you smell like feet or a rotting log.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    9. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    Honey because it exudes comfort and warmness.

    I read a report several years ago that was conducted in the US (I think) in which many women underwent a blind smell test of many different aromas. The one that was overwhelmingly chosen by these women was Cucumber. I have tried many times to find this study report but I cannot remember where it was. Its very subjective though. Women, like men, are all different and warm to different smells.

    Edit: Try to refrain from Cucumber jokes.
