19 Best Sexiest Perfumes for Women


After 40 hours of research evaluating 135 products, we picked Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium as our top choice.

We all want to smell pretty. Not only is physical attraction based on smell, but smelling good can also affect your mood, improve work performance, and even increase confidence.

Say what?

That's right. A study by the Journal of Cosmetic Sciences found that fragrances increase both self-confidence and self-perceived attractiveness. 

In other words, finding a beautiful perfume will not only make you smell better, but will send a message to everyone around you that you mean business.


With the number of perfumes for women available, finding your scent is easier said than done (just look at how many colognes we love on men).

When compiling our list of the best perfumes for women, we considered a lot. We tested the scents with so many noses that we consider our choices a work of art.

Our list of the best perfumes for women was a huge investment but one that we know you will love. We even went a step further and categorized them for all of life's occasions (don't forget to check out our list on the Best Women's Underwear and Best Bras, where we did the same).

We hope you love our list as much as we do. 

Why trust us: Faveable has spent thousands of hours researching, interviewing experts, and testing products to come up with carefully selected lists trusted by millions of consumers since 2013.
