There are a few proven moves I’ve always turned to when I want to feel sexy. Lace lingerie, a Marvin Gaye-heavy playlist, a few artfully lit candles, you know, all the cliché classics. But it’s true that these “tips” can often make you feel like you’re putting together an entire production (SEX! THE MUSIC! ME STARRING ME! WITH SILK SONIC!), Which can kill the mood pretty quickly. This is why I was Nice To Meet You to find a perfume that makes me smell so sexy, a single spritz is all I need to get me in the mood.

Le Point G by Véronique Gabai ($ 260) – otherwise known as “G Spot” – is essentially sex appeal in a bottle. Unlike a certain line of celebrity candles launched last year, the name “G-spot” doesn’t imply that the scent smells like the vagina, rather it refers to the fact that it reaches a “peak” when you put it on. wear. As the brand says, “Built like a crescendo, each layer of Le Point G gradually develops, appears one by one, revealing an increased sensation as it develops. “

The scent blends the deep and sensual notes of leather, vanilla, wood and amber with a fresh and airy rose, creating a fragrance that is both light and enveloping. The real star of the show, however, is musk, which Aromatics Company formulator Lauren Gannes Well-born, previously described as “ingrained, traditional and often very sensual”. The note is traditionally derived from deer secretions which are used to sexually attract animals (which is rude, but effective), and is pungent in a surprisingly hot way.

The fact that the musk notes tend to stay on the skin after other “more volatile” notes have worn off is what gives this scent its crescendo quality. When you first spray it on it smells like new lipstick (in the best possible way), but as it settles into the skin the scent starts to change. Every time I sniff it on myself in the course of a day, it smells different. The only way I can really describe him is “like me, only better”.

While “sexy” scents are usually associated with La Perla lace bras, something about this one reminds me of slipping into a luxurious cashmere sweater – a light and gloriously expensive sweater, but still comfortable enough to wear. be donned with a pair of boyfriend jeans (or, okay, over a lace La Perla bra for a little hug after sex). It makes me feel like I am myself but somehow sexier which is the complete opposite of how I feel when I dress up in a bustier and try not to let the wax drip of hot candle on me.

While I would normally balk at a price of $ 265, this scent is a better investment than any fancy lingerie or expensive candle that I have ever bought. It gives the phrase “slip into something more comfortable” a whole new meaning, and for that I’m eternally grateful.
