I like beauty products that smell like food. Rarely do my nostrils make contact with an artificial scent I can tolerate that isn’t reminiscent of food. I completely ignore the entire perfume aisle. I don’t want to smell like some actress or clothing designer! Gross!
Maybe if Rachael Ray came out with a line of fragrances…. :P
Heeehee. I think it’s hilarious in Twilight how Edward ties to explain his blood lust for Bella as that of a person with a preference to vanilla ice cream rather than chocolate. Because I would be the sort of person to go walking around smelling like vanilla or chocolate ice cream. I hate to give Twilight credit for anything sincerely funny, but there it is. Honesty. =3
Some of my favorite foodie smelling things.
- mark (Avon) Chocolate Mist
I have a foreboding feeling they’ve discontinued this remarkable product and I’m too scared to look until mine is completely used up because I can’t take the heartbreak right now. It’s the ONLY fragrance I will wear. Honestly. I will not wear any other scent. Just this chocolate stuff.
- Raspberry Lemonade Blistex
Is this chapstick actually doing anything for my lips? Dunno. Do I care? No. Because it tastes like lemonade. In fact, it’s probably counterproductive because I’m always licking it off my lips. :P Oooh well.
- Lush’s Sympathy for the Skin
Bananas, vanilla pods, and cocoa butter. Putting this miracle custard on makes me want to eat my own hands. But in a good way! I mean, I would be attracted to me with this stuff. (I don’t know what I’m saying.) Oh yes, and it even does what it’s supposed to do, which is make your hands soft. :)
- Secret’s Coco Butter Kiss
It smells like coconuts and heaven! I got hooked on this when I took a stick to Europe on a whim. So now every time I whiff my deodorant, I think of European showers, early morning hours, and sweet smelling adventuring. :)
- Glade’s Apple and Cinnamon
What’s that? The house smells like apple pie? Well that’s because I’ve been baking all day in the kitchen! Psych! It’s Glade. And it makes me want to bake pies and cinnamon rolls.
- Corn Dogs
Seriously. Corn dogs. You want to tempt me? Wave a golden-browned corn dog fresh out of the fryer right under my nose. I will be your slaaaave for liiiife. *lip trembles* I want a corn dog now. Badly. I like to eat it with ketchup and mustard, nibble the crunchy part off the stick, then swirl the leftover condiments around the plate with the newly chewed stick. It’s like a ritual. (Sometimes–okay, every time–I also eat the ketchup and mustard off the stick.)
So yes. Anything food smelling is my friend. Vanilla candles, I love. I once had this candle that could have been a brown sugar cookie. In fact, I think that’s what it was called: Vanilla and Brown Sugar Scented Candle or something. Made my mouth water. *happy sigh*
Great. Now I’m hungry. -_-‘
Confession: I also like it when the car smells like burgers. But not when mixed with boys-that-were-riding-home-from-soccer-smell and burgers. Just burgers.
