Weird News Wednesday-Ooooh, That Smell

LONDON (Reuters) - Some say Britain's pungent blue-veined Stilton cheese smells of old socks. But its fans have turned the rare odor into a perfume.
The Stilton Cheese Makers Association commissioned an aromatics firm to create Eau de Stilton, described on the association's Web site as featuring a "symphony of natural base notes including Yarrow, Angelica seed, Clary Sage and Valerian."
"Blue Stilton cheese has a very distinctive mellow aroma and our perfumier was able to capture the key essence of that scent and recreate it in an unusual but highly wearable perfume," said an association spokesman.
The perfume will be available from

I think I'll pass on this particular perfume. Here are a few more I'll not be dousing myself in any time soon:

Skunk Fields- An alarming fragrance sure to make your eyes water.

Eau du Sauerkraut-A bold, unisex cologne that comes back to haunt.

Mildew Musk- Carefully cultivated sources yield a lasting aroma perfect for dark, mysterious nights.

Oil of Refinery-Give yourself a powerful air.

Wet Dog no.5- You'll have the men howling.

Sneaker Essence- For those who prefer sportier fragrances.

Parfum de Sewage-A breathtaking new scent.

Roadkill Attar-Perfect on a summer's day. We're dying to have you try this.

Eau de Toilette du Chat-It's pungence lingers long after you've gone.

What perfumes will you not be trying any time soon?

I will be sure to avoid:

Eau de Toilet: wear that "Ive just been to the bathroom at the Library and boy does it smell it there" fragrance always!

L'onion: For that "i've been slicing onions for dinner" smell where ever you go!

End o' Day: Your husbands on his way home and you want him to think you've been cleaning and cooking all day, instead of blogging.
Spray on this exhilarating scent of furniture polish, cleanser sweat and dust for that hard working housewife aroma!

Ok hows that!

Hilarious, Miss Lime!

Ewww, cheese perfume??? That's nasty. I think I would stay away from the fart cologne.

I'm still working on my meme with the letter R. I've been a bit preoccupied with a pair of rambunctious kittens. I'm exhausted. I can't imagine what having children is like.

Me no like
I recently saw that vanilla beans soaked in everclear is a good perfume, but THAT I would consider wearing.

YUCK! Who in their right mind would want to wear anything that reeked of Valerian Root? Pretty soon we won't even be able to tell the bathers from the abstainers! LOL
