At first I was like, “Eww, Pizza Hut perfume?!?!? What is this world coming to?” and then I remembered that there’s some bacon shaving cream makings its way to me rightthisveryminute and I was like, “Oh, of course.” And it’s in Canada so it’s unlikely I’ll be able to splash a bit of that on to mingle with the bacon cream. Unlikely, but perhaps not impossible. I’m talking to you, Canadian readers.

It all started as a joke on Facebook, says the Christian Science Monitor, but it has now become a very real, very pizza-y fragrance.

“Introducing Pizza Hut Perfume – a brand new fragrance from Pizza Hut Canada boasting top notes of freshly baked, hand-tossed dough,” reads the press release from Pizza Hut.

Pizza Hut Canada’s marketing firm put a call out on Facebook, asking fans:  “Do you love the smell of a box of Pizza Hut pizza being opened? We thought so. If that smell was a perfume, what would it be called?”

People started responding and demands flooded in for a very real scent. Voila, you got it. Well, some of you will have it, as this “limited edition perfume” is restricted to 110 bottles, which will be shared with Facebook fans who won them. Lucky Canadians.

There’s still hope we can get our hands on a bottle of this stuff, as the press release teases: “Will we be seeing Pizza Hut perfume in department stores any time soon? Only time will tell.”

If I can get me some of that, all I’ll need is some chocolate ice cream shampoo and I will be a complete work of culinary cosmeticism.
