A new survey has revealed the top 20 tricks women employ to make themselves feel seductive.
A simple spray of favourite perfume comes top of the list for helping women feel sexy.
A new hairdo and a happy smile also rank highly.
Women also hailed settling down into a warm bath, showing off their well-maintained legs and wearing a push-up bra as quick fixes for achieving the "it" factor.
The study commissioned by UK's health and beauty retailer, Superdrug, also revealed that the average woman only feels truly irresistible once a week - usually on a Saturday night.
"This poll clearly indicates that while women know exactly what they have to do in order to feel sexy, they obviously aren't doing it often enough," the Daily Express quoted Sara Wolverson of Superdrug as saying.
"Maintaining a beautiful, polished appearance can take time - something most busy women don't have enough of.
"But with a little bit of effort, such as a splash of scent, a pair of fluttering false lashes and a big smile, ladies can feel confident and incredible," she stated.
The study of 2,000 women found more than half of those polled consider a simple spritz of perfume was all it took to make them feel special.
More than one third said a new hair colour or highlights made them feel sexy.
The poll also revealed that women feel sexier if they spend hours getting ready.
Other contributors to a sexy look include waxing, applying an all-over fake tan and straightening or curling hair, exercising religiously, wearing a tight-fitting top, a short skirt and jewellery.
