BBQ, Bacon, and Other Intoxicating Cologne Scents
|Ladies love it.|
There is no reasonable answer to the previous question, which is why the innovative folks at Pork Barrel BBQ recently released Que, which is described, rather revoltingly, as a "tantalizing bouquet of spices, smoke, meat, and sweet summer sweat."
Can't forget that sweet summer sweat.
To accompany their new smoky n' meaty cologne, Pork Barrel released a trio of ads, one of which features a bipedal pig walking down a hallway stripping, ostensibly preparing for some piggy sexytime.
The product, available only online, is one of many food-centric fragrances to hit the interweb shelves this summer season. Over at Chicago-based Fargginay, not one, but TWO bacon fragrances are featured. The Bacōn Classic contains what its manufacturers call a "sophisticated smoky maple" scent, while Bacōn Gold offers a "memorable sizzling citrus" aroma. The box that houses each fragrance is decorated with a silhouette of a voluptuous woman that transforms into a crispy piece of bacon -- it's as if you took a mermaid, and replaced the fish portion with a strip of bacon (which ironically, is eerily familiar to a recurring dream of mine).
Even Burger King is hopping on the meat-scented cologne bandwagon, as the fast food giants recently released Flame, a men's body spray promoted as "the scent of seduction mixed with a hint of flame-broiled meat." Sounds...sexy?
Big-ups to Brooklyn-based CB I Hate Perfume for featuring not only meat-based fragrances, but countless other culinary favorites in their perfume repertoire: bruschetta, pesto, rice (boiled and pilaf), California roll, and cucumber sandwich, to name a few. That's right -- cucumber sandwich fragrance. Are there subtle hints of cream cheese in there?
What a world. What a smelly, smelly world.
