LADIES should stop doing this one thing in bed, because guys secretly hate this bad bedroom habit.

Women may think they’re boosting their sex appeal with a little spritz of perfume, but they’re actually putting guys off.

Surprisingly 63% of men confessed that smelling sweetly can be a turn-off, according to the results of a new study.

The survey, conducted by extra-marital dating site Victoria Milan, sniffed around the private lives of 5,807 cheating adults from 10 countries to find out how big a role smell plays in sexual attraction.

In fact guys admitted they’d prefer their female lovers to be themselves and let their natural scent do the talking.

But if you are going to spray some perfume, men are also quite particular about which scents they find sexy.

“Lovers want each other laid bare”

When it comes to ladies’ perfumes, floral scents are the hottest followed closely by fruity (32%).

Sporty (22%) claimed nearly one-fifth of the votes and spicy fragrances will entrance just 15% of gents.

Sigurd Vedal, founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, revealed that a chance in scent could hint that your partner is being adulterous.

He said: “There’s no doubt that perfume is what initially attracts lovers to each other and now we’ve discovered that between the sheets, lovers want each other laid bare – completely natural.

“We don’t want to give away any secrets, but if your husband or wife either stops wearing perfume, or changes their ‘signature scent’ that’s a good indication someone’s told them they smell better without it.

“And that probably happened while they were having wild, passionate sex.”

Meanwhile smelling fresh isn’t just important to men because most ladies agree bad body odour is a huge deal-breaker – and it will ruin your chances of getting lucky.

A massive 78% of women would go home alone rather than sleep with a man who smells bad.

Men on the other hand are more likely to take what they can get: five in every 10 say they’ll put up with any stench once they have a lady in the bedroom.

Reeking badly was also proven to be a relationship deal-breaker because half of the ladies admitted to ending it purely because the smell of her partner didn’t please her.
