Finnish. I've heard it's the only major language with more vowels than consonants in normal speech. Whether that is true I'm not sure but it does have a beautiful, flowing, gentle quality to it.

French spoken by a native speaker sounds wonderfully elegant too.

French, as spoken by Parisians.

Urdu can be nice too.

For me French sounds the most beautiful while Chinese sounds the ugliest. I find nothing sexy about hearing Chinese people speak.

No disagreement on Chinese. On the other hand, I find the sound of a female speaking Korean or Japanese to be very beautiful. Less true for a man speaking Korean as the chauvinism involved in both countries results in males taking on a much deeper sometimes almost aggressive sound.

Italian and Portuguese for me. I am French but prefer those two. Gaelic is a beautiful language too.

I've heard really beautiful French accents, but some varieties of French don't sound as pretty.
