New Eau Flirt perfume smells like pumpkin pie, turns guys on

Men are attracted to the smell of pumpkin pie. Photo by ThinkstockMen are attracted to the smell of pumpkin pie. Photo by ThinkstockEveryone has their own idea of what fragrance smells awesome, whether it's fruits, florals, musks, or somewhere in between. We've heard big cats are attracted to Calvin Klein's Obsession for Men, and it may come as no surprise that dudes are apparently into food smells.

According to the New York Times, the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago had a group of men smell 30 different scents while hooked up to a device that measured blood flow to the penis. (We swear we're not making this up.) The results found that guys are most turned on by lavender, pumpkin pie, donuts, and black licorice. Fragrance manufacturer Harvey Prince is hoping to capitalize on these findings and have combined the scents of lavender and pumpkin pie to create Eau Flirt perfume. They've dubbed it "the world's first perfume clinically proven to make men flirt with women."

Dr. Johan Lundstrom, an assistant member of the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia tole the Times, "There's really nothing that you can spray on and the opposite sex will fall for you. It's completely a placebo effect."

There are other factors at play as well. Some guys may strongly dislike lavender, and conjure up images of dusty potpourri. Pumpkin pie may remind some men of their mothers, which may kill any sexual impulses altogether. Every guy has different memories and feelings associated with scents, and varying preferences in how they like women to smell. That said, we happen to like pumpkin pie and lavender and wouldn't mind smelling like either one so we're going to pick up a bottle of Eau Flirt. The mini 8.8ml Eau de Parfum sells for $21 while the largest 100ml (3.4 oz) size costs $100.
