What Does Jennifer Love Hewitt Smell Like?

And we’re not talking about something abstract like desperation or tears, we’re talking about actual scents. Does she wear some special type of perfume? Some body powders, perhaps? Maybe she has a really great soap?

No, none of that. Jennifer Love Hewitt just carries around some vanilla extract in her purse for when she needs to catch her a man:

“I carry McCormick’s Pure Vanilla [in my purse] — the baking kind — and dab it on my neck. Men are attracted to the scent! One time, I put it on and four different guys were like, ‘You smell amazing!'”

Oh, Jennifer.

I was going to ask if this was a thing that people actually did, but no, I know this happens in real life. I can remember being a preteen and reading Seventeen or Cosmo or something along those lines, and there was an article about different scents and how they attract men. I believe vanilla extract was actually mentioned, but the one I remember is buttered popcorn. This article suggested that women get greasy old buttered popcorn and rub it on their necks and behind their ears, and a little on the wrist, because it will attract guys. How gross is that? I can barely stand it on my fingers at the movies, I’m not going to purposely wipe that all over my body because a dude might like it.

Hey, Jennifer: I know vanilla extract smells awesome and can conveniently be used for many dishes, and maybe it could get some guys talking to you, but have you ever thought about just being an interesting person instead?

  • it’s too bad she’s so starved for love because she’s really a beautiful woman. but the abject desperation is just not an attractive quality. she just needs a decent man in her life who will treat her well. i volunteer for the position.

  • There really is something seriously wrong with this woman. How many times has she been engaged? She likely does smell like desperation. Ugh…

  • I don’t think I’ve ever heard or read this women talk about anything other than wanting a man/ways to get a man/what men want/etc. She is SERIOUSLY pathetic.

  • lol, as I read the title I thought to my self “desperation” .. then read the first line. too easy…

  • Y’know, I wonder if she truly is as “desperate” as the media makes her out to be. Maybe she’s just asked the same questions over and over, which is why the topic of her man-hunting gets beaten to death.

  • This will sound incredibly stupid but I’m pretty sure that I read an article, probably on or, that men are more likely to be sexually attracted to a woman when they’re hungry so if I’m remembering the article correctly…she is on to something!
