Pizza Hut Perfume Makes Us Wish These 10 Other Food Fragrances Will Become a Reality

pizza hut perfumeYou know what smells awesome? Pizza. You know who's taking advantage of that? Pizza Hut. The restaurant's PR company posted a tongue-in-cheek question to its Facebook page back in August that read: "Do you love the smell of a box of Pizza Hut pizza being opened? We thought so. If that smell was a perfume, what would it be called?" They got so many responses that they knew they had to make a Pizza Hut perfume. A little bit bready, a little bit herbally, a lot of bit delicious, the Hut made 100 bottles of their tantalizing elixir and sent it to 100 of their Facebook commenters.

Now. I don't know about you, but I'm kind of into this idea. Food-scented perfume will keep us from having to dollop cheese on our wrists or cookie dough behind our ears to re-create our favorite aromas! So here are 10 other food fragrances I'd like to see bottled and on the shelves.

  1. Tacos. Who doesn't love a taco night? Ground beef, sour cream, and guacamole are an irresistible combination that brings all the boys and girls to the yard.
  2. Fried chicken. As if you could get a whiff of fried chicken and turn your back on it. Nay! Once those glorious, fried scent bubbles make their way up your nose, you become happy, drooly, and smiley.
  3. Turkey dinner. Mashed potatoes, gravy, turkey, and cranberry sauce make everyone feel comfy, cozy, and warm inside. One inhale of your Thanksgiving perfume and people will dole out hugs like it's the third Thursday in November.
  4. Cheeseburger. Fresh off the grill, this scent will make people's mouths water as they try to take a bite out of your neck.
  5. Coffee. Perfect for those early morning meetings or road trips. This fragrance is as eye-opening as it is delicious.
  6. Hot wings. Show everyone just how spicy you really are by literally smelling like atomic hot sauce. Why not take the guesswork out of it?
  7. Kentucky bourbon. Hungover? Smelling like last night's party? Nope! You're just wearing Maker's Mark perfume, and you don't care who knows it.
  8. Bacon and eggs. I mean, no-brainer.
  9. Pad Thai. With bouquets of peanut and lime, this eastern scent takes everyone to another world, slash, their local Thai place.
  10. Spaghetti bolognese. When you're not feeling pizza, but you still want Italian, this aroma is light, grainy, and tomatoey with a ton of acid. Mmm.

I'm turned on just thinking about these complicated, nosy perfumes. Smelling never tasted so good, am I right?

How awesome is the Pizza Hut perfume?

    Ugh sounds disgusting. Certain foods smell amazing but people smelling like food...No way. I know several people who work at restraunts that I really like but away from work they still smell like the food at work and it's horrible. That's what this reminds me of. The only exception to that would be fruity scents and things like vanilla. Those work not pizza, meat, vegetables etc.
