The bacon trend is just not going away, even after the launch of numerous products that, for any other food, would surely have signaled a jumping of the proverbial shark. Now, however, bacon-themed items have reached their apex with the creation of Fargginay Bacōn ($36), a fragrance made with "11 popular pure essential oils and an ever so slight hint of . . . bacon." The stuff is being marketed as "bacon in a bottle," and it even features a bacon-strip Venus de Milo on its atomizer. To find out more about Bacōn and see the rather funny commercial, just keep reading.
Bacōn (pronounced bay-cone for added classiness) is supposed to be the rediscovered "secret recipe" of John Fargginay, a Parisian butcher who "discovered the ability to dramatically elevate his customers’ mood" using bacon, essential oils, and herbs. Supposedly, the formula was lost in a fire in 1924, and the current Bacōn is Fargginay founder John Leydon's attempt to re-create the scent. Check out the commercial below and tell me whether you'd be interested in sniffing out Bacōn for yourself.
