Blood, Semen, Excrement and Now...Bacon. Try the Latest Fragrance Inspired By Everyone's Favorite Breakfast Meat

In the beauty industry, nothing really surprises me anymore. Gaga and her Eau de Bodily Fluids, poopy perfume...does it never end? While every fiber of my being tells me this is a joke (and pretty funny one at that--wait until you see the video), I kind of hope it isn’t. A company called Farginnay just launched a fragrance called bacōn (pronounced “bay-cone”), and it comes in a Classic and Gold version. The company dug up an old legend about a Parisian butcher named John Farginnay (shouldn’t that be “Jean”??). According to press materials: The Legend of Fargginay began in 1920 when quite by accident John Fargginay, a Parisian butcher, discovered the ability to dramatically elevate his customers’ mood with a secret recipe blending herbs & essential oils with the essence of…bacon. As the story goes, film stars & heads of state would frequent his shop to procure the magical elixir. With a wink of the eye and the secret code, “fargginay,” customers would be slipped a discreet pouch containing the formula said to trigger pleasant memories. After a massive fire on July 4, 1924, the business was lost and so was the formula…Until now.

The two different versions are comprised of essential oils, flowers, herbs, and a bottom note of bacon, hidden within the other notes. Classic is described as a “spicy maple” and Gold as a “sizzling citrus.” I am eagerly waiting for a sample to arrive.

Their marketing is a bit untraditional. A bottle sells for $36, and they stop production if “the secret ingredients are not in season.” They also offer a baker’s dozen special--buy 12 and get one free.
