For the full-on sexy effect, however, try a musk. Musk is general a scent taken directly from animals or is an artificial fragrance designed to smell like animal musk.

Put a little on your wrist and sniff it after a few minutes sniff it again. Perfumes have layers of scents usually after the first scent evaporates, the base oil that contain the fragrance remains on your skin.
To overcome the nose fatigue ,take in fresh air or smell something that carries your own smell like your shirt sleeve or armpit.
