Hot Dog Perfume

Is it just ME? Why cant they come out with a perfume for women that men REALLY like? How about a body splash that smells like hot dogs? Or pulled pork?!

What food perfume would YOU like to see on the market?

Hey Sushi!
You must have been catching my brain waves. I was just at Sephora (big shop full of makeup, perfumes and colognes) and was in the men's section with my nephew, helping him find a new fragrance. There's a line called "Demeter" that has one called "humidor" that rocks. It's a smoky-cedar kind of smell that I couldn't get enough of. Definitely man smell. Mesquite smelled like a guy who'd been BBQ-ing. Of course, they also have one called "rubber" "...yep, smelled like a mechanic. Also (and I kid you not) one called "dirt". Guess what it smelled like? You got it. Right up from the garden.
Ah - here's the site: http://www.sephora.com/browse/produc...ategoryId=4183

LOOOOVVVE! SEPHORA!!! jkath, a woman DEFINITELY invented this line for men. Reason being, there is no other way a man would step foot in that store willingly. I bet they have it displayed clear at the back of the store so the woman in tote can grab one of everything on the way to the back, so by the time he gets to the back to pick up what he wants, we are done shopping!

When I was a kid, I always wished they would have made a steak flavored chewing gum, or maybe pizza flavored. Hot dog would have been good too. And then there's always baked beans, or pancakes with maple syrup.

As an adult, I think that sewing shops should have a section for men, with supplies for fly fishing, especially the supplies for tying your own flys, and kits for making your own fishing creels. Both stores require specialty threads, yarns, feathers, beads, shiny things, etc. It's a natural.

And ladies, there is nothing more distracting in church than strawberry perfume! Don't wear it there. It makes it very hard to take the mind off of the stomach and put it on the speaker. The same would be true for any fruity perfume, such as orange, pear, peach, etc.

And guys, B.O. just isn't a cologne, no matter how hard you've been working on the honey-do list.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I have a perfume called Brown Sugar. When I wear it, I hear everything from, "I smell candy," to "I smell popcorn!" It really does smell like brown sugar. They also make White Sugar, but I haven't got that one.

This ties in to my wish that "they" would make candles that smell like food savory, not desserts). I'm thinking roast turkey candles would be a hit!

sush, women wear perfum for themselves (same goes for the way they dress, their makeup, shoes, accessories, etc.). they don't have to do much to get us chasing them now, do they?
in contrast, men are supposed to wear cologne for a woman's pleasure. think about it, when you buy a cologne, you think of how a chick is going to react, aren't you.
about the only thing a guy buys for himself is beer, and tickets to sporting events. and those are both just rentals, really...
The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

Very astute Bucktom! Just like clothing. I read once that women dress for other women. This seems to hold true for a lot of women--they want the approval of other women. Women are quick both to compliment other women on their clothing/make-up/hair and to rip them to shreds over them!

Ladies, ladies please, they've had the best perfume to attract a man for almost a hundred years and marketed under numerous brand names.

It's called 10W-30. Just a dab behind the ears combined with a little unleaded on the wrists and watch his little heart go pitty pat.

Just tell him it's the NASCAR look.

Hmm... why don't they come out with a men's cologne that smells like Chocolate? hee hee
