It all began in 1920, when Parisian butcher John Fargginay accidentally came across an interesting aroma. By combining a super secret recipe of eleven different pure essential oils with the essence of bacon, he was able to create a scent that would, "dramatically elevate his customers' mood." Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Fargginay invented bacon cologne.
This may seem like a belated April Fools Day joke, and believe me I thought it was, but the makers of this fragrance maintain that it is a sophisticated product, which can be found at high quality retailers across the planet. The Fargginay website goes into an explanation on why you would want to smell like bacon, considering how for most people the smell of bacon triggers a memory of home. Returning to John Fargginay, the original manufacturer, he would sell this magical elixir to film stars and heads of state alike. Apparently, smelling like bacon is a lucrative business maneuver as well as a career booster!
