    Oyedo by Diptique is a fruity candy one for sure, and I've seen reviews of M7 Fresh that describe it as candy-sweet. No first hand experience with that, though.

    Also, Anice by Etro reminds me of the little wrapped anis hard candies that my grandmother used to send from Cuba, it's one of my personal favorites.

    Tabac EDT smells like a roll of fruit flavored Lifesavers. It's candy to the extreme!

    (Not to be confused with the Tabac EDC or Aftershave which are both a completely different animal from the EDT).

    My first reaction is to be very sceptical about "scientific research" especially when it emanates from anyone associated with the aromatherapy crowd.
    Check "Aromatherapy" at the Skeptics Dictionary at
    http://www.skepdic.com/aroma.html
    to get a good idea of the usual "scientific" culprits.

    But who knows - maybe the research is legitimate.
    Black XS reminds me of numerous strawberry candies.

    Or try the numerous aniseed scents that remind me of aniseed balls (the candy I detest most) like Etro Anice, Armani Remix, Mat Very Male, Lempicka - which doubles your chances via the aromatherapy crowd, since they often have aniseed as one of the turns-on-women smells.

    More importantly, do you want to go around smelling like candy?

    My experience is that people generally like the smell of candy when they're eating it, but not on their significant others.

    That is a good thing for a girlfriend to do!

    SL Rahšt Loukoum does the trick.

    I'm wearing M7 Fresh right now and I get the reference to Lifesavers candy. Ugh, allergies have my nose all clogged up though.

    V/Valentino = cotton candy
    Carlos Santana = cinnamon candied apples
    AdP Blu Med Mirto di Panarea = sugared lemons

    I get more positive reactions from women in general when wearing a fragrance that is spicey/musky than when wearing a gourmand. My best friend (a woman) is sitting next to me now and says, "for a man to smell like food isn't sexy."

    There was a segment on the wonderful NPR gameshow "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" that featured questions about the book "Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex." One of the questions was on what scent women found most arousing. The scent, according to the book, is a mix of Good n' Plenty and cucumber. I haven't red the book, so I can't attest to it's veracity.

    I know this has been discussed before. But here is an article entitled "Sexy scents: The nose knows the best sensory stimuli" that talks about that:

    I love the quote in the article that says no odor decreased arousal in men!

    I was doing a bit of research on the guy who did the studies - Alan Hirsch. Considering he wrote a book titled "What's Your Food Sign?: How to Use Food Cues to Find True Love" and was hired by KFC to figure out the personality profile of customers based on what flavor they ordered (http://www.kfc.com/about/pressreleases/090905.asp), he may be a bit of a hack. Oh, and he appeared on Oprah, which automatically sets off my BS detector. If nothing else, it's a fun read, though.

    Yep ! Forgot about Rochas Man...I wore it only once and got a compliment from my......brother...(without him knowing about the shape ;-)) ....

    But, maybe....:

    you can get compliments on scents from girls (or boys), saying Ohhh you are smelling very good, and so on and so on...(f.e. acqua di Gio, Le male etc;..)

    BUT, you can get also compliments from girls (or boys) saying they wanna eat you..and THAT could be the thing about candy smelling scents..

    Now, am I good or am I good ;-)) (but by far not so good as you guys, and girl ;-) )

    Keep them going friends !

    Royall Lyme has a hard lime candy aspect to it for sure, with a subtle spice underpinning.

    Escada PH reminds me of caramels dipped in cognac. It accomplishes what Claiborne Spark tries to do and failed miserably - a heady, boozy, sweet-but-not-too-sweet oriental that works well on nights out when dessert isn't merely *ahem* eaten...;-)

    Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin has a boozy sweetness to it too, though it's about pralines and sambuca.
    I'm not big on gourmands (I like frags that "suggest" rather than "declare" an edible quality, if that makes sense). But LL's is quite good - as always with sweet stuff, small doses only.

    Mario Justiniani's excellent review says that Lomani Ignition is a very good vanilla. Maybe not candy per se , but it's enough to convince me to try it for my next sweet fix.

    My wife "loves" the candy-ish scents on me. She prefers Blue Sugar and Rochas Man. I like Blue Sugar...but once in a great while....it's too sweet. Rochas Man, however, is a little more sexy...
