If you could wear your food as perfume...

what would you wear?
For me, it's tom kha gai, hands down. And the Hub would happily follow me around like a love-sick puppy if I dabbed Filipino pork adobo behind my ears.
So curious - because this whole house smells like the best perfume shop in the world right now and it's on my mind.
Garlic ... y'know in the spirit of Halloween.
Durian ... to separate those who are die-hards, and the posers.
Pizza maybe? Apple Pie? Or how about fresh baked bread.
But in all seriousness, if I wanted a scent that was food-related or a food-derivative, it would be something like mint, or lavender and maybe (just maybe) vanilla.
I immediately thought of some of yours (vanilla came up first in my mind - it's a favorite flavor and smell of mine). Ginger sounds great! Adding in a bit of citrus smell to some of those might be nice also. Not very original, as many perfumes already do this.
If we were to take this to the food extreme, and focus on favorite food scents, I guess it would be either cooked garlic/onions, or fruit crisp.
