There are lots of interesting perfumes out there that go waaaaay beyond your average floral, citrus and oud fragrances. There are one that smell like gold, the scent of your favorite cocktail and weed. There is even a fragrance that smells like holy water. If you thought that the world of fragrance couldn’t get any more weird, hold that thought because the latest product will have you retracting that statement. Spoiler alert: It has nothing to do with perfume.
The latest product to push the boundaries of conventional fragrance is a pair of bacon-scented underwear. Yup, they are a thing now. J&D’s Foods are selling a pair of underwear that smells like bacon. The company sell an array of bacon products including more traditional food items like Bacon Salt and Baconnaise, to novelty items like Bacon Lip Balm and even Bacon Shaving Cream. However, the bacon-scented underwear takes thing to a whole new level.
There are lots of meat lovers out there and bacon addicts are a serious bunch. Just look at Cara Delevingne, she loves bacon so much that she got a tattoo of it. For the bacon lovers who aren’t into permanent body modification as a way to show their appreciation of the salty food, the underwear is another option. This is how they’re described on the J&D’s Foods website:
“Marrying the ultimate in comfort and cured meat, J&D’s Bacon Scented Underwear represents the gold standard of meat-scented luxury undergarments. It’s like a hot frying pan in your pants.”
And who doesn’t want a hot frying pan in their pants? If you’re wondering how the underwear get their smell, they are made with bacon-scented printing technologies. The smell is in the ink. (They used the same concept to create bacon-scented pillow cases last year.) The bacon scent is meant to last through multiple washings and can last up to six months to a year. That means there will be plenty of times someone will ask you, “Is someone cooking bacon?” and you can reply, “No, it is just my underwear.” Sexy.
Are you intrigued? A pair of bacon-scented underwear will set you back $19.99. They come in sizes small to extra-large. However, note that they come with the following warnings:
“If you have a large dog with razor sharp teeth, please do not fall asleep in J&D’s Bacon Scented Underwear. J&D’s Bacon Scented Underwear is not recommended for people in the following professions: mail carriers, zookeepers, veterinarians, dog catchers and walkers, and circus performers (especially lion tamers). If you are hiking in the woods where bears are known to roam, please do not wear Bacon Scented Underwear without also carrying a firearm.”
It makes sense, right? If you have one of those people on your holiday shopping list who you have no freaking clue what to buy for them because they have everything, a pair of of bacon-scented underwear may be just the thing.
