13 Perfumes That Smell Like Food — Because Who Doesn't Want To Smell Like Bacon Or Chocolate?
My favorite scents by far are perfumes that smell like dessert. I have never liked floral perfumes (they kind of remind me of my grandma, and not in that cool “granny chic” way), and musky scents aren’t quite right for me, either. My go-to signature scents tend to be sweet, with notes of sugar and fruits.
I recently came across a whole world of perfumes that smell like all kinds of different foods, however. From the subtle (like citrus or vanilla), to the extreme (anyone want to smell like pizza or barbecue?), there is really no shortage of scents out on the market that will allow you to smell like any of your favorite foods, no matter how random.
After trying out quite a few of these mostly delicious — but sometimes totally wacky — foody perfumes, I put together this list of all the scents you need to try so you can smell like a tasty meal.
To ease into this olfactory journey, we have a vanilla and blackberry scent. I love LaVanila fragrances because they smell exactly as described, last a long time, and are free of harsh chemicals. Their scents also come in deodorant form.
The Entire Demeter Fragrance Collection
It’s hard to talk about food-scented fragrances without immediately thinking of Demeter fragrances. The entire brand has a niche on the market for wacky novelty perfumes, including their most recent newborn baby scent. Some of my favorite Demeter perfumes include their Pizza and Pumpkin Pie scents, as well as their Cotton Candy and Vanilla Cake Batter. Yeah, they also make Sushi and Lobster perfume, because who doesn’t want to smell like seafood?
One more for meat lovers (mostly because I think it’s crazy how many meat-scented perfumes actually exist), this handcrafted perfume by I Hate Perfume combines the smell of roast beef, parsley, and herbs, black pepper and spices, smoked woods, patchouli, cedar, and tobacco absolute.
