Did you ever think there would come a day when the sweets you eat actually make you smell sweet as well? Well, my friends, that day is today! Introducing Deo Perfume Candy, the edible deodorant that makes you smell like fresh roses from a stunningly beautiful valley in Bulgaria.
Actually, the concept has been around for some time, but food company Beneo is finally introducing it on the US market, in the form of Deo Perfume Candy. Humans have known about the connection between what we eat and what we smell like for a while, but it was a group of Japanese researchers who discovered that eating geraniol makes people smell sweet. There was even a chewing gum called Otoko Kaoru (“man scent”) launched years ago, but it didn’t really catch on and it was soon discontinued.
Deo Perfume Candy is currently priced at $10 per bag, considerably more expensive than traditional deodorants, but you can’t really eat Old Spice, can you?
The inevitable question comes to mind. Will this crap kill me?
I remember when the local bus company in the New England factory town where I lived “revolutionized” environmental issues by making their exhaust fumes smell like roses – without removing any harmful chemicals or particulates.
