OK, this is not a joke – you can actually buy perfume that smells like bacon. It seems that the Brits love bacon (it’s the eighth favourite smell of the nation, apparently) and Firebox.com (the quirky website behind the new scent) expect this new ‘Bacon’ perfume to be a sell-out. It comes in two varieties: Bacon Classic – a spicy maple aroma, and Bacon Gold – a sizzling citrus scent.
Seriously, the nation might love bacon sarnies but would you really want to smell like one? Make up your own mind, but we’re not sure who your new aroma will attract: hungover men or hungry dogs! LT
