I wonder why the OP put Asian. Asia is the most populated continent and a person from India sounds a lot different from a Chinese person. In addition the Chinese person from Hong Kong sounds different from Bejing.

Also different parts of Africa the people sound different. The people of Ghana sound as different to the people of Ghana as the English are as different as the Greeks.

Plus someone from Saudi Arabia sounds very different from someone from parts of Lebanon.

Also there is also a big difference from someone from Cuba and Argentina.

I had to lump some of them together because my list was becoming soooo long. If someone wants to be more specific they can post their reply. I also realize that there are many accents in Africa too, however, as a whole when heard by an American women she can tell it's at least African in generic terms. The African accent in general is very beautiful and when mixed with French as in Haiti it sounds even better than the original French, both on women and men. I also forget to add English Islander. I lot of women enjoy hearing a man from Jamaica or one of the other islands speak. Therefore the African accent when added to proper English, Dutch or French makes it more interesting and pleasant to the ear.

South African on a white guy is to die for. So exotic.

Scottish would be my second choice.
