The 6 Sexy Fragrances to Wear If You Want to Get Laid This Summer
I left a recent POPSUGAR brainstorm meeting with one very intrepid assignment: pull a handful of new Summer perfumes out of our over-stuffed beauty closet, wear a new one each day, and see which scents get me laid. (It's a perk of the job I'm sure my SO appreciates more than my dental plan or PTO.)
Over the course of a month, I meticulously tested the sexiness of countless fragrances — and found six that passed with flying colors. Keep reading to see the hands-down hottest smells of Summer, and get ready for honies to come out of the woodwork. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar Eau de Parfum Intense
An innocuous blend of sweet and sexy, Flowerbomb Nectar Eau de Parfum Intense ($170) is exactly what a high school sweetheart-turned-bombshell would wear. The sultry blend of vanilla and patchouli are what get you in the sack — but it's the softer notes of jasmine that'll carry you through family brunch the morning after.
Annick Goutal Tenue De Soiree
It's not just the pom-pom packaging on this Tenue De Soiree ($128) that's sexy as hell — although the beyond-fabulous appliqué resembles what I imagine a 19th-century Parisian sex toy would look like — the dark, iris-y scent also draws in the zaddies, so wear it to ward off scrubs.
Cartier La Panthère Eau de Parfum Spray
The gardenia-infused La Panthère Eau de Parfum Spray ($140) isn't for sex — it's for making love. Powdery notes make it feel grown-up, but never heavy, and it will linger on your skin for the entire duration of an anniversary dinner or romantic wedding. Plus, the bottle is engraved with the face of a panther, in case you need a reminder to act on your primal instincts.
Roos & Roos Song For a Queen Eau de Parfum
You'd probably want to sleep with yourself after getting a whiff of this Song For a Queen Eau de Parfum ($225). It's impossibly sensual — the equivalent of wearing a white slip dress and purple lipstick during witching hour. Prepare to break hearts in this combination of bergamot, jasmine, vanilla, and musk, but not before getting your freak on first.
Natura Brasil Collages Fragrance Collection in Nectar
Something about this Collages Fragrance Collection in Nectar ($95) makes the citrus-amber smell feel more like your natural aura than a heavy perfume. Spritz it on before you go out on the prowl, and get ready for all of your thirsty friends to want a splash of this blood orange musk, too.
