Our idea of seducing a man may be getting drunk together and falling over in his general direction, but French women do things differently.
We all know in theory that we should wear beautiful underwear and behave like a lady.
The difference is that French women put it into practice.
Use your brain
Every French woman knows the quickest way to get a man really interested in you is to use your brain - of course they look great too - but they know the most vital seduction tool is esprit. You need to be lively, engaging, intelligent and amusing. No man can resist a woman who makes him laugh, and who interests him.
OK, this one may seem a little obvious, but if we all know that men love sexy underwear, why do we still persist in wearing our sagging on M&S knickers? French women wear very sexy underwear, which is always matching.
French women also believe underwear should be under your clothes. So none of your thongs peeping out over the top of your jeans or wearing your bra over your T-shirt please.
Learn how to tease like Dita.
French women use everything they can to seduce men, including perfume. They're mad about it. Most of them won't leave the house without it.
If you're wondering where to spray your perfume, take some advice from Coco Chanel herself: "Wherever you want to be kissed."
In fact if you're not sure which perfume to go for, Chanel is a safe option; always elegant and chic. But don't overdo it, perfume has to give a hint of sweet things to follow, not knock your date out.
Lotions and potions
French women also swear by allies such as creams, lotions and potions when it comes to seduction. Their skin is beautifully soft due to all the time they spend exfoliating and preening.
If you're going for the big seduction, it's very important not to neglect parts of you that might otherwise go unnoticed. Your feet for example. Spend some time massaging cream into them a few nights before the big event and filing your toenails neatly shaped.
Talking of nails, if you're going for French seduction, of course the nails on your hands must be perfect too. But they should always be painted a subtle colour.
Spice up your life
Are you satisfied in bed?
The only thing you need to remember here is the author Franoise Sagan's dictum. "A dress makes no sense unless it inspires men to take it off you." That means a dress that inspires seduction, not one that makes you look undressed before he's even started.
Seduction French style is all about femininity and subtlety. A world away from the British ladette style. If men want some one to guzzle larger with, they'll see one of their friends. Remember, men like those things which make us different from them.
