Look at it another way -- we all know where true musk and civet come from (yuk!), and all of us admit that each adds indelibly beautiful elements to certain fragrances. Why be skittish or prudish about human elements, be they real or synthetic?
Ha ha! To paraphrase an ad for another product, with a name like Vulva, it's got to be good! This one has come up a couple times before.
I think my friend TV is onto something - it's very common to criticize perfumes for smelling like some bodily secretion, animal, etc., but I bet that in certain intimate situations, those same people would be just a little bit more accepting, and less critical of the same smells all of a sudden. Perfumers clearly understand this.
It just depends on whether or not the smell-source is providing other sensations that are consderably more compelling!
