8 Perfect ‘Skin’ Scents for Hot Summer Love


In the fragrance world, there are some scents described as "skin scents." Skin fragrances are scents that can only be smelled on the wearer when you're close enough to see her individual eyelashes or realize that she smells like an intoxicating mix of sunshine and vanilla cake. In honor of Summer Sex Week, here are our picks for sophisticated skin scents: from a gardenia perfume loved by Guns N' Roses and Winona Ryder to a cinematic, dewy rose scent inspired by the resting place of an Irish warrior poet. Take your cue from Halle Berry, who once told an interviewer her favorite place to apply perfume was on the inside of her thighs.
