The Search for a New Sexy Scent

A new man in my life calls for a new date night fragrance.

For me, a new man in my life calls for a new date night fragrance. After all, there's a powerful link between scent and memory—and I for one could do without a scentual reminder of sensual moments with the ex when I'm out with my new guy.

Before heading to Sephora for some liberal spray-testing, I logged on to Marie Claire's Fragrance Finder (opens in new tab)—as much as I like sampling scents, I also wanted to cut down on my risk of perfume overdose by coming up with a list of perfumes to try.

My list of sexy scents so far? The crisp, citrusy DKNY's Be Delicious (opens in new tab) from the Flirty Date Night (opens in new tab) collection for a night on the town and the spicy, exotic Fairytales by Lulu Guinness from the Dreamy Romantic (opens in new tab) collection for a night in.

I also couldn't resist looking up

Flashback Perfumes (opens in new tab) for my old favorite, Ex'cla.ma'tion (opens in new tab). Oh, to be young and in love in the '90's. I wore this one on my very first date, spraying on enough for my perfume to outlast the entire relationship.

If you need a little help, take the Fragrance Finder quiz for your perfume personality—my results were spot-on...it recommended the favorite I've been wearing daily for years!
