Bulgarian confectionary Alpi's perfume candy, Deo

Here’s an interesting beauty movement that has yet to hit the States—and do we even want it to?  A Bulgarian candy manufacturer named Alpi claims to have invented a hard candy that leaves the skin smelling of roses. After chewing on the sweets, rose oil components are apparently emitted through the pores of the skin via an ingredient called geraniol. The sugar-free bonbons, called Deo Perfume Candy, were created to sweeten both the tongue and body.

And as odd as it sounds, this isn’t the only version of perfume candy on the market these days.  A chewing gum in Japan also claims to both freshen your breath and your body. Fuwarinka gum, which comes in fresh citrus, fruity rose and rose menthol, is marketed as a men’s deodorizing gum: after an hour of chewing the gum, the special exudes a rose scent from the skin and combats body odor, the gum claims. The gum also reportedly has anti-aging properties, thanks to added Vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Now we’ve heard everything!

But whether you’re on board with scent going in through your mouth and out through your skin or not, we may have some time to wait before the phenom hits Stateside. The perfume confectionary is slated to hit Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Hungary first, according So for the time being, we may want to hold onto those atomizers!
