Supposedly they say that us guys get turned on the most by the smells of lavender and pumpkin pie. Just curious if a scent like this existed. Thanks.

I haven't run across a scent like that but I have worn a Creamy Pumpkin oil with Serge Lutens Encens et Lavande. It's an interesting mix but I didn't notice any men falling at my feet when I wore it.

That's an interesting notion. I tried some search variations, and the closest match I could find was Gris Clair—lavender and the sweet spice of amber and incense.
In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.
Lavender with vanilla + cinnamon + nutmeg would likely approximate it.
The pumpkin frags I've tried never really capture the actual pumpkin component, they all just smell like vanilla and spice and maybe a little cocoa tossed in (< which does help make it smell like pumpkin).
This question is interesting to me. Taking some liberties in substituting to what, to me, are similarly-behaving notes (ambergris, jasmine, spices, etc.) these seem to be along the lines of what this questions bring to my mind:

The closest I have ever come to smelling something like this is Kiki by Vero Profumo - a gourmand, caramelized lavender.
"The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.
You begin to awaken"
-- Eckhart Tolle
Caramelized lavender is my description of Kiki too. A very friendly and enticing lavender.
