Deo Perfume Candy – Edible Deodorant?
Ever wanted to smell good enough to eat? Well …
Now you can. Kind of. Possibly. Maybe! We’re not sure. Anyway. Cybercandy sent me this little box of Bulgarian Deo Candy, which contains rose extract (said, in Japanese studies, to be excreted in your sweat after ingestion) and claims to perfume your pits for up to six hours after munching! Here at Lippie Towers, we decided to try a little science for ourselves, and put the claims to the test.
Well, we say science, it was more like sitting around on a Sunday afternoon eating sweeties then sniffing each other, but, instead of calling it “a normal Sunday afternoon with the Lippies*”, for the purposes of this review, the title “science” will just have to do …
The sweeties are pretty tasty. I expected them to be rose-flavoured, akin to a hard-boiled Turkish Delight, but they’re actually orange-y, and rather sherbety too. Very nice, in fact. Bit crunchy. I didn’t tell MrL what he was eating (although his face when I pointed out it was “edible deodorant” a bit later on was worthy of a blog post in itself, frankly), and we both enjoyed them. After an hour or so, we had a sniff of each others pits.
Man, the things I do for this blog, seriously.
So, how did we smell? Well, not that different to normal, really. Possibly slightly sweeter than usual, but there was no gust of Bulgarian rosy pits that we could discern, alas. I’m slightly disappointed, but hey! Sweeties!
For £1.85 you can have literally minutes of fun wit these, and possibly smell a bit nicer … I did actually notice that my breath was a bit sweeter after eating these, so maybe a better breath freshener, as well as a nice taste sensation.
