  • Eats Beat: Pizza-Scented Perfume

    New York Daily News ^ | TUESDAY, JANUARY 28, 2014, | Gina Pace
    Hot, cheesy and fresh out of the oven — exactly how a girl wants to smell, right? Demeter’s new Pizza perfume re-creates the sensation of diving into a slice of ’za, with a strong scent of dough mixed with notes of tomato sauce, mozzarella and oregano. In testing, Daily News olfactory workers deemed it “intoxicating and a little off-putting,”“as romantic as a cheese slice at 2 a.m.” and “great, if you want to smell like garlic.” The most dangerous side effect for your diet: “It makes you constantly think about pizza,” said one tester. The good news: The fragrance isn’t...

    Zombie-scented perfumes make you smell less attractive to the undead Usually a person dabs on a bit of perfume in hopes of attracting someone else's attention, but could a zombie-scented perfume repel the affections of the flesh-craving dead? Demeter Fragrance Library, purveyors of all sorts of offbeat scents, have come up with a pair of undead-themed perfumes that could come in handy during the zombie apocalypse. No, the perfume doesn't smell like decaying flesh. Instead, Zombie for Him combines dried leaves, mushrooms, mildew, moss and earth, while Zombie for Her is a more feminine version, adding "a touch of Dregs...

    Pizza Hut may have discovered a new route to a man’s heart — through his nose. The chain is releasing the limited-edition scent, which smells of “freshly baked, hand-tossed dough,” in response to an Internet joke that began last August. According to a company news release, Pizza Hut Canada’s marketing firm, Grip Ltd., asked the chain’s Facebook fans what they would name a perfume that smelled like “a box of Pizza Hut pizza being opened.” When the post went viral — earning more than 300 frenzied comments — they decided to make good on the gag.

    Beijing officials hope spraying perfume from 100 high-pressure nozzles around a major landfill can temporarily end complaints about the stink. City officials also promise to cover the Asuwei dump with more layers of plastic, The Guardian reports. People living near the landfill say the smell is almost unbearable when the wind is blowing from the dump. Getting rid of the trash generated by China's growing economy and prosperity is a difficult problem, especially in Beijing, where 17 million people live. Photographer Wang Jiuliang has spent a year taking pictures of the 200 landfills circling the city in what he calls...

    Archaeologists have discovered vases of perfumed ointment which may have been used by Mary Magdalene to anoint the feet of Jesus. The Italian team have been digging for several months at the ancient Palestinian town of Magdala – from where Mary gets her name. The archaeologists of the Franciscan academic society Studium Biblicum Franciscanum found the unopened vases dating to the first century AD conserved in mud at the bottom of a swimming pool in Magdala's thermal complex. The town is on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee and Mary Magdalene is mentioned several times throughout the Bible....

The Detroit News says U.S. District Judge Lawrence Zatkoff determined Susan McBride has a potential claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The city is asking to have the suit dismissed. McBride says she's severely sensitive to perfumes and other cosmetics. She says the perfume worn by a co-worker in the city's Planning Department made it difficult for her to breathe. She says the co-worker also used a plugged in room deodorizer. The suit says the...

    Still in Control Pervez Musharraf was calm, confident and—despite a flurry of rumors—not about to announce his resignation. Instead, the Pakistani president's "concession" to his troubled nation was an announcement that he would allow Britain's Scotland Yard to help local law enforcement agencies with their investigation into last week's assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto. Speaking in a nationally televised address two hours after Pakistan's election commission announced the postponement of the ballot to Feb. 18, six weeks later than had been scheduled, Musharraf was notably deferential in his remarks about Bhutto, often invoking her "martyrdom" and extolling...

Her sensitivity is such that she avoids the detergent sections in shops and cannot sit near perfumed people in a movie...

A federal jury this spring awarded Erin Weber (pictured, right) $10.6 million. She said station owner Infinity Broadcasting fired her in 2001 after complaining about an allergic reaction to another host's perfume at 99.5 FM WYCD. Infinity said Weber was fired for not coming to work. A federal judge reduced the award to $814,000. He said he was tempted to throw the jury's entire verdict out because he questions whether Weber really has a perfume allergy. Weber's lawyers...

Without a doubt, it is the oldest production site for perfume in the world," said Maria Rosario Belgiorno, the excavation team leader.

But businessman Yeslam Bin Ladin said he had no immediate plans to bring out any goods under the name.

In fact, a 10-year US study has found that pleasant, floral-spice perfume makes women appear 5kg lighter in the eyes of the opposite sex.
