It Tastes Like Fruit, But Makes You Smell Like a Flower

It sounds wacky, but it might be a boon for people with serious perspiration problems: a new candy that tastes like fruit contains an ingredient that isn't processed by the body, and is therefore secreted through the skin, releasing a rose-like scent.

Deo Perfume Candy is the name of the sweet -- and apparently sweet-smelling -- candy, which is produced by a company called Beneo.

The product is completely safe, the company says, as it works the way garlic does. Deo contains a compound called geraniol, a natural compound that is found in lavender, vanilla and roses. As with garlic, the body can't break down geraniol, so it's instead released through the skin.

The candy reportedly tastes like tangerines -- yum -- and gives off a fragrance that is rosy.

Deo, which comes in both regular and sugar-free versions, is available at, and according to just a few reviews that have been posted, it does actually work.

It's not cheap -- $7.99 for a two-ounce bag -- but it may be worth keeping a bag in your desk at work. You know that smelly guy who sits a couple of rows away from you, whose, ahem, personal scent is left wafting in the air every time he walks by your desk to get to the copy machine?

Well, now there's no need to force some awkward conversation with him about it. Simply offer him a piece of delicious, tangerine-flavored candy.

And chuckle to yourself with the knowledge you've turned a really stinky situation into a a bouquet of roses for the entire office.
