Seductive fragrances for cocktail hour
The scents to spritz after 5pm
InStyle Contributor / December 14 2016
Fragrance is something that requires little effort, yet a single spritz can make you oh-so-memorable. It announces your arrival before you’ve entered the room. It lingers behind once you’ve left. We reveal our picks of the sexiest perfumes around.
Giorgio Armani Si Eau de Parfum Intense
Stronger than the original Si EDP, this scent featuring notes of vanilla bean, black woods, bergamot and nerol absolute, is the perfect one to spritz when you want to feel a little sexy and sensual.
Chanel Les Exclusifs de Chanel 1932 EDT
It was the year Mademoiselle Coco launched her luxury jewellery collection and now Chanel’s perfumer, Jacques Polge, has chosen to bottle it. Jasmine is the hero and as Akira Isogawa says, “it’s memorable. Not too sweet, yet feminine."
YSL Manifesto EDP
With Jessica Chastain as its face and an hourglass-shaped bottle that evokes the female form, there’s no doubt this is a sexy, dynamic offering from the French label. Jasmine, lily of the valley, blackcurrant, sandalwood and tonka bean create a striking scent with lasting power.
Bulgari Jasmin Noir L’Elixir EDP
From the polished black bottle to the candied bergamot, tuberose, pink pepper and musk notes inside, this creation exudes luxury. It’s the perfect accompaniment to your LBD.
Gucci Guilty Black Pour Femme EDT
If you want to impress on a first date, this seductive, oriental floral will do the trick. Red fruit gives it a youthful spin and Gucci’s signature patchouli makes it intensely alluring.
