The 6 Sexy Fragrances to Wear If You Want to Get Laid This Summer

I left a recent POPSUGAR brainstorm meeting with one very intrepid assignment: pull a handful of new Summer perfumes out of our over-stuffed beauty closet, wear a new one each day, and see which scents get me laid. (It’s a perk of the job I’m sure my SO appreciates more than my dental plan or PTO.)

Over the course of a month, I meticulously tested the sexiness of countless fragrances – and found six that passed with flying colors. Keep reading to see the hands-down hottest smells of Summer, and get ready for honies to come out of the woodwork. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Your Favorite '90s Middle School Scents Are Going on Sale at Bath & Body Works!

Bath and Body Works is answering our ’90s loving prayers by including all our favorite vintage scents in its Semi-Annual Sale. Starting June 5, you’ll be able to shop previously discontinued scents you loved as a child, all at a discount.

If you’re a fan of the cult-favorite Cucumber Melon scent, you’ll be thrilled to learn that the body-care emporium now sells the fresh fragrance in a 3-Wick Candle and Wallflower variety so your home can smell as good as your well-moisturized body. The retired scents are only available during June and are sure to fly off shelves fast, so make sure to get them while you still can.

If your favorite scent happens to be from the brand’s current lineup, you might want to stalk up on that fragrance, as well. The Semi-Annual Sale is notorious for being the last time you can get your hands on products before the company retires them for good.

Read on to check out the vintage scents available at your local Bath and Body Works on June 5.

Kat Von D Reveals Exactly When You Can Buy Her Edgy Revamped Perfumes

After years of teases and anticipation, we finally have information on when Kat Von D is reviving her cult-status fragrances, Saint and Sinner. In a post to the brand’s official Instagram, a caption disclosed that the scents will be relaunching exclusively and internationally in Sephora this July.

If you didn’t sniff them when they originally launched in 2009, you should know that the two perfumes are wildly different but both impossibly sexy. Saint, which is the lighter aroma of the two (and housed in that white bottle in the above image), features notes of mandarin, vanilla, caramel, jasmine, and sandalwood. Sinner, seen above in black, is spicier and boasts cinnamon, patchouli, and vanilla notes.

If you simply can’t wait for July, we have good news: you can actually buy Kat Von D Saint Perfume ($45) right now on the brand’s official website. It’s in an edgy, intricate, cigarette lighter-inspired bottle. Act quickly if you’re interested, though, because it’s likely to sell out quickly.

Update: On June 1, Kat Von D shared the Instagram below as well as this info: “Same classic fragrances we all love, in a newly designed, handcrafted bottle. Launching in Sephora stores July 13 [and international launch in October]! SINNER notes: refreshing Mandarin notes fused with Orange Blossom and Plum. A heart incorporates Jasmin essences with white flowers and Cinammon, while a base offers a mysterious blend of Vetiver, Patchouli, and Wood surrounded by Vanilla and Musk.”

Now that we have an official date, the countdown can really begin!

Nineties babies, if you had to sit down when Bath & Body Works announced its #FlashbackFragrances campaign last year, then prepare to pull up a chair: the brand is bringing back eight of its iconic scents later this month. Last year’s relaunch included six limited-time-only releases of nostalgic scents, including Cucumber Melon, Plumeria, and Juniper Breeze. This time around, the masterminds behind Bath & Body Works have decided to add two more fragrances to the revival collection.

There are no details yet regarding which signature products will be brought back, so you’ll be in for a surprise when you visit stores on May 27. Until then, it’s time to play the guessing game . . . and make room on your vanity.
