Can perfume really help a woman get her man? After all, by the time a guy is hooked, it matters little whether she’s wearing Novaya Zarya’s Lights of Moscow or Chanel’s Cuir de Russie. There’s little hard evidence to suggest scent is any more powerful than other dating tactics, such as laughing at his jokes and showing a bit of cleavage.
Yet the power of attraction is one of the foundations on which the fragrance industry is built — spray on our perfume and you’ll be irresistible.
In lieu of a review today, a little poll inspired by a comment to yesterday’s article about Chanel Bois des Iles, noting that there don’t seem to be any sexy, oh la la perfumes out this season. Perhaps I am forgetting something, but I would have to agree: sexy is not the strong point of the new fragrance releases this fall. But here are my votes for the sexiest perfumes in general, and I hope you will add your own in the comments.
My vote for all out sexy: Frederic Malle Le Parfum de Thérèse, no question…
