Eau de Burger

If you follow this blog, then you know that Gwen wishes someone would come out with a roasted turkey scented candle.

As much as I love the smell of a turkey roasting in the oven on Thanksgiving, that's just WRONG. Scented candles are meant for romance and relaxation, not roasted meat.

But what do I know? After all, you can now buy flame-grilled-burger-scented cologne.

Yes, that's right. Just in time for the holiday shopping season, Burger King has unveiled a burger-scented men's body spray called "Flame."

Utterly repulsed by this idea, I shared this disgusting tidbit with Mr. Brice, assuming he would agree with me. No such luck. Much to my utter chagrin, Mr. Brice is intrigued by the concept and is now asking for some for Christmas.

I sincerely hope he's joking.


  1. Yeah, a study showed that the perfumes that men liked best smelled like food. So forget that sexy musk, girls -- go for vanilla! And, um, Burger King? Sigh...

  2. If Steak-n-Shake put out one that smelled like a milkshake, Hotrod would have already bought me some.


  3. Actually, Cara, I rarely wear perfume. Love body spray, though, and my faves at this time of year are vanilla and chocolate! Yum!

    I am with you, Amanda. The idea of a burger-scented cologne is just repulsive. But, apparently, there are some who disagree with us . . .

  5. I once used vanilla oil (like you use for cooking) as a perfume - as a joke, after emptying the bottle making chai.

    The result it got from the hubby was no laughing matter.


    I'm not complaining, though. ;)

  6. If they made Philly Cheesesteak cologne all men would be puppets in our hands.

    Or... like... Sam Adams Dark for day and Porterhouse with Portabello for evening.

  7. The comments are as funny as the post. Srsly. *Porterhouse Portabello" Love that. I'm not letting anyone in this house know about this post. Ever. lmao

  8. link please! Two teen boys in house would love.

  9. dude, that's awesome. hahahahaha

    I am so, so going to get some of it, if it isn't too expensive. ROFL!!

  10. Ms. Menozzi! Yes. It really does work!
