addendum: Despite loving foodie scents now, my favorite designer scent was the very heavy Opium.  But I also loved the packaging too. 
I'm laughing at the "Barbie"scent comment below---I've sampled a few that smelled like Kool-aid or like some 'cupcake' dolls my daughter used to collect.  ::shudder:: Or the stickers we give to kids in school!

Nope. I do not want to smell like a vanilla coconut cake, or like chocolate pudding, or any candy like type fragrance. I don't mind a certain amount of citrus in a scent; but sweet food is out.

Yes, I do- in body creams. washes, scrubs and candles.  I've just started getting into some fruity scents like black current.   
  • Complexion: Light with pink undertones but tan easily
  • Eyes: green with yellow flecks and a dark grey rim
  • Hair: medium dark brown with lightish highlights, very thick and almost curly
I still haven't found what I'm looking for- U2.

I don't like chocolate scents or any fruit scents (except some citrus types)that smell like kool aid.
I like vanilla if it's well-blended with almond or citrus.  I also have some oils that have a distinct but not unpleasant 'boozy' note.  I've found some foodie/cookie type scents that I adore, but they all have something else added-I'm not good at identifying 'notes'-whatever else is in there,that for me, adds some extra seductiveness and fun.
I used to think I wanted a signature scent, but not anymore. I love experimenting with different scents and combinations.

I'm not a big fan of chocolate or vanilla (or some of the other odd fragrances by companies like Demeter. Smell like a brewery anyone?)

But I LOVE the Body Shop Pink Grapefruit line. When I have the winter blues, I'll slather some body butter on and get an instant lift. Or at least I used to, back when I could smell things. :(

Ha! Years ago, I bought, I think, grass.  It smelled like...grass. Anyway, I found them overpriced and not worth a return purchase.

I love The Body Shop Strawberry body butter and a coconut mango body lotion I bought at a hotel in Hawaii.

I like vanilla and I really love Luctor and Emergo, which is classified as a gourmand scent. It doesn't seem foody to me, though.

In general, I don't like them. I prefer light florals and citrus for spring/summer and spicy, amber, patchouli or incense for fall/winter.

I love Orgins Ginger, but that is about the only food fragrance I like.  Unless lavender counts-I love drying and using my home grown lavender in sachets.

I love Origins Ginger as well but I've never thought of it as a food scent, just herbal and fresh.
  • Complexion: fair neutral
  • Eyes: boring brown
  • Hair: dark brown (over the grey), coarse, naturally curly but treated with keratin

Lime, pink grapefruit and fig are the only foodie scents I really enjoy.  Or very modest amounts of vanilla in a body lotion.  I prefer all of these in lotions or candles; not perfume.

absolutely not, at all! But I'm real picky about scent anyway. I go with the following way:

"I'm drawn to mysterious, sensual, smoky, womanly scents with amber, sandalwood, patchouli, and/or musk in them.  Rowrrr."

that's me. Opium, just a drop or two, as it's heavy, but perfect on me. The bottle I have will last for the rest of my life...
