Yes, I can see an applesauce paste being attractive to insects.

But on the other hand, spraying with Krylon is going to cover and/or mask
the scents of the ingredients, which I thought was the whole point of
using those ingredients.

The pungeant spices are probably less likely to attract insects.

Coriander is one of my favorite flavors for chicken soup.  Was the other
one you mentioned cumin?  I buy that by the pound for personal use.  Love
it in chili and other Mexican type dishes and in curries, too!
