Scents used in the erotic services industry: Some scents seem to have more attraction either for men or women. Light sweet scents appeal more the feminine side while stronger more astringent scents generally appeal to the masculine side of ones personality. But there is a substantial percentage of the market for which all scents are attractive. When we introduce a new client to an erotic fetish we try to scent the experience heavily with the things s/he enjoys most

BDSM: Some of the more popular erotic scents in the Domme/Sub culture are: the scent of new rope fibers; light machine oil on chains, Neatsfoot oil on leather ball-gag harnesses, leather chastity belts, Lash Leathers, fighting design ballet-heels and thick leather encasement suits. The smell of new latex, hot latex, melted latex, powdered latex, latex that has been sweated in and ripe latex cervical barriers that have been left in the vagina too long. The coppery scent of menstrual blood from a woman’s period or a miscarriage is arousing, or from a uterine hemorrhage caused by killer contractions and cramps from a too intense vaginal orgasm or from bloody toes from poorly fitting pointe shoes.

True Bliss: A bit more mainstream is the alluring scent of a pair of brand new pointe shoes smelling of new leather and paste, filled with the promise of an amazing future of bloody toes, pain and the ecstasy of orgasms while en pointe. The scent of sweat dampened well worn pointe shoes. That incredible blend of odors from: sweat dampened paste, fabric, leather, powdered rosin, stage grime and if one is fortunate toe cheese and old semen is incredibly arousing to anyone who has a serious pointe shoe fetish. I think the scent of pointe shoes is particularly erotic to both men and women because the scent complements the senses of sight and touch and the shoes can be worn in public and for performances by women w/o revealing their secret fetish of having mind-blowing sex on their toes which is an open secret between moms and their daughters. When a woman is working en pointe she is showing her legs as well as the rest of her body to their best advantage with her buns clenched, her chest thrust forward emphasizing her breasts and her calves displayed fully contracted extending the line of her legs. Being en pointe feels amazing, knowing your body is displayed at its most alluring. And, as far as the sense of touch is concerned, when taken from behind while en pointe a girl and her partner know she is at her tightest and can be penetrated the deepest of any position for sex.

If I’m dating a man with a particular fetish I will wear what he likes and accent my costume with the appropriate scents. When we go to a fetish club I will dab a few drops of concentrated latex dust or sweaty leather in solution or light machine oil behind my ears and on my wrist pulse points. Powdered English paste (recovered from dead Freed pointes) in an alcohol solution is a fave fetish scent of pointe-shoe fetishists. I always wear it to Ballet Galas when I’m not performing. Wearing a fetish scent while out socially pleases my date while reminding the other men I meet what a marvelously erotic time we could have privately. It drives both men and women wild, for very different reasons of course!

There are more delicate erotic scents, the intimate scents produced during sexual activity. The bouquet of fresh semen or a woman’s natural vaginal lubricant both of which have very short half-lives and can be almost undetectable, but will definitely set the mood when worn immediately after sex while out socially. Then, female friends with an acute sense of smell know that by wearing such an intimate scent you are bragging.


  1. You mentioned the scents your men like to smell. Well, what about scents you like? What's your opinion of Tag's Dark Temptations scent (in body wash and spray)? They market it as if the guy is smelling like chocolate, and I can detect a cocoa-like scent in it. Otherwise, other than the natural musky scent of a sweaty guy or the neutral scent of a guy that just got out of a shower, what would you like to smell on a guy?

  2. I think fresh male sweat is awesome! And the scent of soap on his bod after a shower is wonderful too!
