Your Cooter!
Now in fruit flavors! Brought to you by the idiots at Tampax. And brought to my attention by Jackie Danicki, who found this bit below on the fabulously named blog, Lipstick Is My Crack:

So I was leafing through the August issue of Lucky when I came upon a scent-strip insert. The name of the fragrance wasn't readily apparent because the front of the insert featured only a woman in a flowing dress and some sort of water imagery, along with the words, "Beguile your senses. Succumb to the freshness." Intrigued, I opened the strip and took a sniff. Whoa! It was a very strong floral-peach scent with a strong basenote of toilet paper. Figuring it was some cheap new drugstore body spray or something, I flipped the insert over and DUDES! Do you know what it was I was huffing there? Tampax. As in tampons. They have scented ones now, apparently, and are so darn proud of it that they want you to rub the scent of tampons on your wrist and walk about in public, or something. -- always your source for the latest in vaginal fashion!

Peach? Why not make everyone happy and have them beer smelling/pizza flavored?

Now, there's a man who's got his thinking cap on about marketing to men. And isn't what they're doing, really...indirectly?

Ok, my ob/gyn tells me that scented fabric softeners, dryer sheets, soaps, and perfumes are the main causes of yeast infections. Now someone wants you to stick scents right up there? Nasty!

I've read that, too...apparently, scents irritate the area. It seems smelling like Summer's Eve might give you summer's worst yeasty beasties!
