Cop This; Valentine's Edition.

"I believe in love and lust and sex and romance. 
I don't want everything to add up to some perfect equation. 
I want mess and chaos. 
I want someone to go crazy out of his mind for me. 
I want to feel passion and heat and sweat and madness 
and I want Valentines and Cupids 
and all the rest of that crap. 
I want it all." 
- The Mirror has Two Faces

Roses, chocolates, blah blah blah blah blah.

So, he's gonna be coppin' a feel this Valentine's Day. What a lucky guy. I'm sure you've got seduction down to a deep-V, but here are a few tools that can make you go from tempting to temptress.

Check it...

1. French lingerie. The origin of the word "lingerie" is French for a reason...and that's what you should stick to. My favorite, Kiki de Montparnasse is available online and in boutiques in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and New York City. Read more about having a Kiki in an earlier post, Let's Have A Kiki. 

Other great French lingerie brands j'adore: 

2. A good exfoliation. No one wants to be rough in the buff...except of course if rough is being used an adverb and not an adjective (adverb; in a manner that lacks gentleness vs. adjective; not soft to touch). In any circumstance, exfoliating is key.

I love the assortment of scrubs available at Barneys, like the ones below; Red Flower's Italian Blood Orange Revitalizing Sea Scrub, Cleopatra's Body Scrub by The Organic Pharmacy. 

3. A pouty lip. I'm all about injections to the lip, but there's an amazing natural lip plumper that I found that beats all of the cosmetic counter fakes...and its D.I.Y. Basically, the "lip plumpers" you see at the counters are just irritants. Unless you're actually injecting, all the goop you're applying is just like a temporary bee sting. Make one yourself that's natural and manageable to degrees of sensitivity.

Ingredients: 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 0.5 tsp cinnamon extract, 0.25 tsp ground cloves, and 1 tbs spearmint or peppermint extract.

Mix well and apply to lips only. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes, and then WIPE OFF. If you want to increase your dosage, up the cayenne pepper and cinnamon extract.

4. A scent to remember. Scent is, hands down, the best tool in the world to draw in your male prey. I went through a phase where I would only date guys wearing Tom Ford private blends. Why men are better than me? They're totally not as picky. Musky, sugary, whatever...if it smells good, they dig it.

Since we're talking about seduction however, and yours truly is leading the discussion, lets talk hot. I've racked my fragrance shelf for the sexiest scents...and please remind my credit card to not let me buy anything else in the Barneys parfum department for at least a decade. I've become an eau de fragrance hoarder.

Note to the male readers: These all make really great Valentine's Day gifts for your sweetheart, for your information. If you're not living in a city where Barneys is a landmark, there's such a thing as online shopping...two clicks, select the option for gift wrap and rush ship, and your job is done. I recommend this option regardless.
