Scents That Drive Men Wild

Started 1303610469.913 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1303967949.38 by lovetosing

I was reminded that I read quite some time ago that pumpkin was a big scent turn-on for men. I did some research (well.. google ;) and found some do's and don't(s) categories, along with some specific perfumes to try out.

Do you own any of these? Have your SO's "responded" well? {#emotions_dlg.devil2}

Are there any other scents that you find make your man go cuckoo?

Clean Scents- Turn-on! (Hello, Philosophy ladies!)

Christian Diore's J'adore, Estee Lauder's Pure White Linen, Lancome's Miracle (two thumbs way, way up), Dolce and Gabbana's Light Blue, and Elle Yves Saint Laurent were mentioned.

Desserts- Turn-off!

Vanilla was the only exception. Men thought that Laura Mercier's French Vanilla Souffle Body Cream smelled delicious.

Woodsy and Floral- Turn-on!

Victoria's Secret's Very Sexy (love it!), Christian Lacroix Rouge, Calvin Klein's Secret Obsession, and Tom Ford's Black Orchid made the list.

Strong Florals- Turn-off!

Spicy Florals- Turn-on!

Chanel's Chance, and Daisy Marc Jacobs were mentioned.

Super Fruity- Turn-off!

Apple, pear, honeydew, and lemon-scented sprays were all given thumbs down by men.

Fresh Subtle Citrus- Turn-on!

Clinique's Hint of Citrus, Hermes Un Jardin Apres la Mousson, and L.A.M.B. Fragrance by Gwen Stefani balance blossom notes with a fresh, fruity scent.

Powdery- Turn-off!

And the number 1 scent all men do NOT want you to wear is............. the fragrance their exes have worn!

What do you think?

Bacon and pot roast scents turn my husband on.

The scent that has brought me numerous compliments from men is Pink Sugar.

I go to prepare a place for you, in my father's house are many mansions.

Mostly agree! My husband can't understand why women want to smell like foodstuff...and I totally agree with him.

DUH....WENing! :)

Tissyannie, what is Pink Sugar like? I'm always on the lookout for a new perfume ;)

ValentinaBon, I have to agree, as well. Although I do have this scrumptious shower gel from CVS that I bought a few years ago around Valentine's Day called Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry or something of the like, and I love it! But I keep the foodie scents in the shower :)

The Body Shop vanilla. I swear men go crazy for this scent.

Every guy I come into contact with loves my green apple scent. I have to disagree with that part of the article!

My Hubby loves "Angel" which has chocolate scent. I had men follow me around when I wore "Gucci Rush". They called it "S** in a bottle"!

noposting, I agree. I think most men looove Vanilla- not the sticky sweet icing vanilla, the nice, subtle, romantic vanilla. I borrowed a friend's LaVanila roll-on on a night out and never got as many compliments from men as I did that night. I ended up wearing it the next night too.{#emotions_dlg.devil2}

On another note, I'd like to apologize for our butting heads. I think my sensitivity meter has been off recently.

"Gucci Rush"....gardenia...freesia...jasmine...vanilla and patchouli.

Hi Becca, I found this odd as well!

Do you have the DKNY one?? I really like one of those, can't remember if it's the red or green one lol

I'm a huge Angel fan, although it has never smelled right on me. I fully appreciate it on others, though.

Sounds like my next purchase will be Gucci Rush {#emotions_dlg.laugh} After graduation I'm ready to go on the prowl. {#emotions_dlg.devil2}

amazing grace...(just a bit of lotion is enough)...always a winner...:)

Sadie Darl­ing1303615862.257321 PostsRegistered 1/24/2011Los Angeles

quadmimi, you know what? I have really grown to love this fragrance. Even more so over this past week! There really is something s.exy about smelling light, innocent and... polished. I find myself grabbing AG in the shower more often than my true love FIL these days!

It's very soothing, and the only fragrance I'll wear at work in the hospital. People love it :)

BTW are you a Mimi to four grandkids, or are you an awesome Mimi who rides quads? Lol!

I only wear spicy exotic scents or white florals. Either works well!

Ooo spicy exotic sounds nice! I think Something About Sofia by Benefit has a nice kick to it. Perhaps I'll give that one a test- drive ;)

Sadie Darling- Pink Sugar is a grown up sweet version of vanilla mixed with a cotton candy scent. If you just want to try it out without investing much money Sephora has the rollerball. I use the lotion, spray, and also the hair perfume. I use mostly Philosophy fragrance, but this one definitely draws in the compliments. Hope this helps.

My DH would say it's the aroma of "baked macaroni and cheese" that drives him wild.

Over 40. Dark hair. Fair, with mild-moderate Rosacea. Finicky skin. Did I mention--Gorgeous? ;)

Sounds intoxicating :)

I received a Sephora gift card for Easter so I'll have to check it out next time I'm there. The hair perfume sounds fun! I always spray my fragrance twice- once in the air to walk through and once above my head to make my hair smell yummy!
