A new strange invention, Deo Perfume Candy, the edible deodorant, promises to keep you “sweet smelling” for hours.
An American company called Deo Perfume Candy has created a type of sweet that releases a lingering rose scent through the pores of your skin.
Already launched in the US and due to be released in the UK early next year, one mouthful of the tangerine-flavored sweets will apparently keep you smelling of roses for up to six hours.
Deo Perfume Candy has already been a great success in America, despite their price – a small bag costs $10.
The sweets contain chemical compounds that cannot be broken down by the body and so are excreted through the skin.
The main ingredient of Deo Perfume Candy, which provides the floral scent, is geraniol – a naturally occurring compound that us found in roses, lavender and vanilla.
Garlic also contains similar chemicals that cannot be broken down by the body- but mercifully the candy will leave you smelling rather sweeter than if you’d chomped down on a clove or three.
