Breaking News!!; "Bacon Cologne"
So this is a real thing. No, really.
Apparently the concept was put into fruition in the 1920's so it can't really even be considered "breaking news" as the popularity of John Fargginay's signature blend of essential oils with bacon fat (yes, bacon fat) were wildly popular until the formula was lost in a fire in 1924. But lucky (yes, lucky (?) ) for us, the once lost recipe has been rescued from the hickory smoked rubble and brought back to life and implemented into two (yes, two) signature fragrances now gaining wild popularity.
The original or "Bacon Classic" is
"... a sophisticated spicy maple fragrance with just a hint of bacon ... crafted with the pure essential oil blend of bergamot, orange, lime, grapefruit, black pepper, cedar wood, vetiver, guaiacwood and two pinches of Bacon salty goodness. "
while "Bacon Gold" has a
"...sizzling citrus aroma with an ever so slight hint of bacon...lovingly crafted with a pure essential oil blend of mandarin, bergamot, grapefruit, lemon, nutmeg, pimento berry, black pepper & a touch of sweet, a smidgen of savory, and one pinch of Bacon salty goodness..."
Both retail for $36.00 for 30mL and are available for purchase on the company website.
