The 8 Sexiest New Fragrances
Published Feb 13, 2012
Beauties, are you wondering what to spritz yourself with this Valentine's Day? The right scent can make you feel fun and flirty or dangerous and seductive. Fashion designer Roberto Cavalli is beloved worldwide for his sexy animal prints, floaty, flowing fabrics, and skin-bearing designs that celebrate a woman’s sexy curves. "A woman that embraces and loves her femininity and isn’t afraid to be herself, that is what makes a woman attractive," reveals Roberto, who just released a new namesake fragrance with notes of orange blossom, tonka bean, and pink peppercorn. "To embrace yourself and possess that confidence also requires a certain amount of strength, which is very, very sexy. That is the woman that I love, and that is the Cavalli woman,” adds Roberto.
The perfume you choose can make you appear provocative or demure, and leaves an imprint on whoever smells it. Where you place your chosen smell is also extremely important. "The sexiest place for a fragrance is between the breasts, almost down to the navel, and behind the ears," explains Roberto. "The whiff of a scent that leaves you wanting more is incredibly intriguing and sensual.”
A specific scent can trigger memories of a first kiss or passionate embrace, and greatly affects how humans are attracted to each other. So, Beauties, don’t just look for a fragrance that will make your lover swoon, search for one that makes you feel stronger and ready to take on the world.
This sensual fragrance contains a deeper, sensual core, but also feels light and feminine. With three key notes (tonka bean, orange blossom, and pink peppercorn), it’s a heady mixture that smells like sultry nights and bouquets of white blossoms.
A new version of the fashion house's original rose fragrance, this blend is much lighter and fresher. The summery scent smells like roses in a field of apple trees, and contains deeper notes such as patchouli to bring out your mysterious side.
Perfect for all the lovers of sweet and sugary smells out there, this floral scent has notes of crimson apple, peony, and white fig. If you prefer a scent that makes you feel delicate and girlie in your lover’s arms, then this one is for you.
Envision a field of white blossoms and you have Versace's latest foray into the fragrance world. Packaged in a stunning bottle that looks like a yellow diamond, this perfume contains notes of bergamot, neroli, orange blossom, and freesia. The ideal scent for a woman that knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to get it.
This lighter version of the original scent still has the same musky, seductive undertone that Narciso Rodriguez is known for, balanced with a hint of fig. This signature scent celebrates the quiet strength found in a woman.
With core notes of myrrh and rose, this fragrance has a deep, rich smell that is lifted with notes of grapefruit and pear. It’s perfect for Beauties who don’t like to smell too sweet.
Designed to make you feel fun and flirty, this scent is all about fun and happiness. Filled with notes of orchid, jasmine, and vanilla, it’s delicate and uplifting. Look for it on shelves in March.
This romantic scent is reminiscent of perfumes you may find on your grandmother’s vanity. Rose is one of the most popular scents used in fragrances, and violet has been used for scenting wine and represents modesty and fragility, traits often associated with women throughout the centuries.
