The "scentsational" Mariah Carey stopped by Ellen Wednesday to talk turkey – and perfume.

"You smell a little like s'mores," Ellen DeGeneres said, welcoming the divine diva to her show Wednesday.

"I'm not really a fragrance girl. I don't really like scents," Carey contended as she spritzed her host from head to toe with her new perfume, M by Mariah Carey. "[But, the company] was like, 'We want this to be a representation of you.' "

The songstress worked closely with perfumers to arrive at both her signature scent as well as the pretty purple bottle which is topped by – you guessed it – a butterfly. "The marshmallow element you smelled before is the top note and was a subliminal thing – just to give you little campfire memories," she explained of her first-ever fragrance.

"My [signature scent] of course, is gin and Marlboros," countered a deadpan DeGeneres. "When you come home [with it on], they're like, 'You've been out. ... No, I have Ellen's perfume on!' "

Though she'll smell yummy, Carey's hectic schedule will keep her from having a true Thanksgiving this year. "I'm working," she told DeGeneres. "[Though] I really want to learn how to cook a turkey. It can't be that big of a deal, it just seems like one, to me."
