    Default 4 smells most appealing to women: which colognes have them?

    This study said licorice+ cucumber was the best.

    Followed by baby powder and lavender and pumpkin pie.


    Someone on another thread said Perry Ellis' Portfolio smells like licorice+cucumber. True?

    Any other recommendations would be welcome regarding combos of these scents.
    Article:

    "Women weren't as turned on by scents, which surprised Hirsch because they tend to have keener noses. But the combined aromas of cucumber and Good & Plenty candy (which is licorice scented) and the scent of baby powder tied for first place (a 13% increase in vaginal blood flow). Pumpkin pie plus lavender followed, with an 11% increase"

    Did you just post a thread containing the words 'vaginal blood flow'?

    Jeez..

    Wait til the ladies here on Basenotes get a glance at this thread.

    I suggest you learn a little more about women, son. Or just people in general. If you think that study means anything, colognes aren't going to help you.

    I say people should just rub good and plentys all over their body...combine that with a cucumber sandwich for lunch and you are good to go!!!

    I really want to know a) whose "study" that is and b) how they measured "vaginal blood flow"

    Right! First thing tomorrow, I'm going to purchase all this stuff and smear them all over my body before going clubbing...

    I can't believe anyone is stupid enough to use vaginal blood flow as a measure of how appealing a scent is. Another cooked up comedy.

    Are you saying you go clubbing in the morning?



    Blood flow sounds so scary.

    Does this mean the AXE effect doesn't actually exist ?

    Baby powder = 13% increase in vaginal blood flow?? Well then how come when I wear Burberry Brit I only feel an 8% increase...

    LMAO! Perhaps VBF is directly proportional to VS (vaginal secretions, which is like a hard on for a woman)? I have a scary image of somebody with a graduated cylinder collecting tube. Ok, joking aside, this is silly.

    Funny. I was wearing Dior Homme yesterday and it brought to my mind the smell/taste of Good 'n' Plentys, although there's no prevailing licorice note to the perfume. Of course, I was gettin' it on with this stripper, so I may have been distracted.
