They could be on to something. Widely acknowledged perfume bible The A-Z Perfume Guide starts like this:
“Women say they want a fragrance that drives men wild. There’s only one scent that drives men wild and that’s bacon. Lets move onto to more interesting questions.”
Well. That’s all we need then. Firebox make a difference reference – Lady Gaga’s infamous meat dress.
I’ve actually never thought about what Gaga’s meat smelt like, I but guess it would have been pretty bad.
The way Firebox describe their perfume – it actually sounds quite nice.
