Pumpkin Pie, or Good & Plenty? Weekly Link (1/31)


Apparently, according to recent studies, the smell of pumpkin pie is an aphrodisiac for men. The same goes for women, with the smell of the licorice flavored candy, Good & Plenty.

Guys, as a quick notice, the study showed that women were not turned on by the scent of male colognes. Also, guys, if you’re looking to have some fun, don’t smell like cherry or charcoal barbecue smoke, it turns off the ladies. And, in case you were wondering (I don’t discriminate), avoid cranberry and chocolate for the men.

    Very interesting, Logan. I somewhat disagree with some of the studie’s findings, but to each his/her own I suppose. By the way, welcome to Food Studies!

    Wow, Logan. Just wow. So, why is it do you think that all of the scents listed in the article, with the possible exception of lavender, are food scents? Practically every food there is has been touted at one time or another as an aphrodisiac, but it seems that pumpkin pie, licorice, cucumbers, and cinnamon buns might actually be able to back up that claim.
    The thing that really confounds me is that these foods don’t fit into any kind of category I can think of. Two baked goods, a candy, and a green vegetable (well, technically a fruit, but in the kitchen it is treated like a vegetable). Men, at least, seem to react to lots and lots of sugar and carbs, though not always, since chocolate and cranberries performed poorly. But what is the common factor between licorice and cucumber? And what if you barbecue them? Is that a net loss, or a gain?

    I don’t know how much I trust these, but they’re interesting. Isn’t raw cocoa meant to have aphrodisiac properties?

    To answer your question, chocolate itself has natural aphrodisiac properties, but the smell was the most disliked by the subjects of the experiment.
