Can We Now Alter Our Own Body Odor?
Worried about body odor? Then Deo Perfume Candy is the thing for you. These are sweets that release a lingering rose scent through the pores of your skin. Just one serving is said to "fragrance" a 150-pound adult for up to six hours with a delicious floral aroma. Perfume Candy is manufactured by the American company Beneo, with Bulgarian confectioner Alpi, which says the product is perfectly safe and, in principle, works the same way as garlic. Believe it or not, U.S. consumers have been snapping up the sweets like crazy since they first went on sale online in August, despite their bizarre packaging -- which is more reminiscent of feminine hygiene products than snacks-- and hefty price tag of $10 bucks for a small bag. Perfume Candy is expected to be sold in shops in the U.S. soon and is also available in Spain, Germany, China, Korea and Armenia.
