When it comes to choosing an intriguing, sexy scent, we’re trading in traditional perfume for essential oils, which have the power to energize and uplift or sooth and create a sense of calm. While there are many different essential oils, that have many different uses, we wanted to find out which ones made us smell – and feel sexiest.
This is a highly sensual and exotic scent with heady, floral notes. The exotic aspect of Ylang Ylang makes it a sexy choice and one that offers a good balance between feminine and masculine scents. This is a good choice when you’re already feeling frisky but want something to give you even more allure.
Bringing to mind long walks in the woods, Sandalwood is a relaxing, sensual scent with sweet, woody notes reminiscent of log cabins and sexy, muscular lumberjacks. This scent works well in the fall and winter.
Jasmine has a rich floral scent that brings to mind lush, tropical locales. This is a good scent to bring out in the winter, when romance can cool off. There’s no better way to warm it up than with a sexy, tropical scent. This one made us feel particularly enchanting.
The sweet, floral aroma of neroli is both soothing and lingering. It made us feel relaxed, yet ready for anything.
Rose is a scent we’re all familiar with. As an essential oil it’s luxurious and sweet with intense floral notes. It has soothing properties that helped us relax after a long, stressful day. Rose also made us feel both frisky and feminine.
If you need something to give you a bit of a boost, mandarin’s refreshing, uplifting scent is both delicate and fruity. This one gave us a boost of energy and clarity from the citrus notes.
Sweet and musky, this essential oil gives off a subtle nutty fragrance that both guys and girls can warm up to. We found the musky aspect of clary sage to be particularly sexy and alluring.
There’s nothing like spicy ginger to make you feel sexy. Try this scent if you’re feeling low energy and need a bit of warmth to spice up your mood. We found this one to be a better cool weather scent and really liked how it’s spicy notes lingered.
Lavender has long been used for its calming properties. The scent is fresh with a hint of spice and can be used to help relax either you or your partner. If you’re feeling tense after a long day, lavender can help ease anxiety and make room for romance.
