Perfume and ochre
Smell is what attracts me to a man more than anything else. Especially the smell of wood smoke. Even if I don't physically fancy someone, that smell draws me in. I recently heard that 'muguet' or lily of the valley is the nearest smell to a woman's ovaries, it attracts sperm and you should spray it on your knickers. The French buy their women sprigs of muguet on the 1st of May. Both Napoleon and Cleopatra wore Lily of the Valley. I wear Yardleys but would like to try Diorissimo (Mick Jagger's favourite scent) and Guerlain's vintage Muguet. I like a man that notices your perfume, that you've made an effort. Underlying smell is the key however for true sexual chemistry.
When women ovulate, they show more flesh, and wear more red. Red lips and nails are an ancient come-on. Hunter/gatherer societies used ochre to emit the same signals.
