8 Ways to Mix Pumpkins with Pleasure

With the return of fall comes a widespread desire to consume anything pumpkin. The beloved pumpkin makes its return to grocery store aisles, local coffee shops, even cosmetic counters. Log on to Pinterest and an image of just about any dessert can be found, only during this season its ingredients include pumpkin. I think it is safe to say most of us love pumpkins.  Turns out us ladies aren’t the only ones who are wild about them. According to The New York Times (via zodiac zodiac • 1 year 3 months ago Bluto,you are a jerk. Elizabeth Elizabeth • 1 year 3 months ago Well studies show that men get turned on by scents of vanilla and cinnamon. They say its something about it reminding them of home. So since pumpkin pie has cinnamon this is why. AC AC • 1 year 3 months ago I bought a sample of Eau Flirt a couple years back and while it smells fine, it didn't do anything for me (or anyone I've dated). My boyfriend didn't even notice when I put it on (and he usually comments on perfume). He does, however, always comment on D&G #3...he absolutely loves it! Пу́сси Ра́йот Пу́сси Ра́йот • 1 year 3 months ago Another brainless yahoo "news" story. Men are atracted to women. Their libidos enable men to ignore those nasty perfumes women cover themselves with. It's just one more way to seperate people from their hard earned money. Пу́сси Ра́йот Пу́сси Ра́йот • 1 year 3 months ago I'm a man and think pumpkins smell like rotting corpses. Stay away from me with that shyt. This product must have been invented by a homosexual. Only French people eat lavender. Mjolnir Mjolnir • 1 year 3 months ago I LOVE the scent of pumpkin pie. My favorite incense is pumpkin pie, I have pumpkin pie candles, and a bunch of other nice aromatic pumpkin pie scents. However, I really don't like pumpkin pie (to eat). Never have, and I do try a slice every year to see if I've changed my mind.. but nope. I don't know why but the texture and the way the flavors play in my mouth don't get along with me. The scent does wonders to my nose, though. GREAT aromatics. I may just get this perfume just because I love the smell... =D Joanna Douglas, Senior Fa ... Y! Shine Staff Joanna Douglas, Senior Fa ... • 1 year 3 months ago Maria- maybe Thanksgiving turns guys on? haha! Ayriel you're making me laugh. I've gotta admit—the photo of the pumpkin pie above made me REALLY hungry. But alas, it has no scent so maybe that's why it didn't turn me on as well. :) AyrielC AyrielC • 1 year 3 months ago Hell, I'd turn myself on if I smelled like a doughnut or pumpkin pie! * * • 1 year 3 months ago Lavender scent is a turn on? Who knew! That happens to be the scent of my favorite lotion! Awesome xD herman'sfan herman'sfan • 1 year 3 months ago I don't believe that lavender, pumpkin pie, donuts, and black licorice mix well. It would seem that the smell would be terrible, but then again, it could be great. Who knows? Ed Ed • 1 year 3 months ago Best perfume I ever smelled on a woman had the scent of hot apple pie with cinnamon. Wish I knew what it was called. (And no, she hadn't been baking, it was clearly an artificial fragrance.) 1979 1979 • 1 year 3 months ago I am not sure why men would really flirt with a girl who wears pumpkin pie perfume, I would think it reminds them of Thanksgiving. Anyways, I currently use LOVE SPELL, and I believe that the guy has to already like you in order to have the perfume drive him crazy, I mean, I'ved been stopped before while pregnant, by men who would tell me I smelled so good, and it was Dove Shampoo, and Victoria Secret APPLE body Spray, then I used Paris Hilton for Women, and men would tell me I smelled nice, but now Its LOVE SPELL, funny. Mrs. B Mrs. B • 1 year 3 months ago Mjolnir, try pumpkin pie made with a real pie pumpkin. I love all things pumpkin flavored, scented, decorated<br />
...lol...but I HATE pumpkin pie made with canned pumpkin. The real thing is far and away the best. That being said, I'm curious what this perfume really smells like. I never really thought to put Lavender and Pumpkin together...it's intriguing. SeadogMillionaire SeadogMillionaire • 1 year 3 months ago It is old news that scents, which replicate food smells, create the most attraction in people. That is why we have had vanilla or citrus scented perfumes for decades. Most perfumes/colognes include food scents (citrus, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla). I prefer a food scent on a woman, over a flowery or obscure perfume, and the women who wore these got to spend more time with me. The women who didn't .. didn't. (Although some people might argue they were the lucky ones). Avery Avery • 1 year 3 months ago Eau flirt isn't new! It's been around for a while.
