I love blue cheese, including Blue Stilton, but always try to keep it off of my hands while eating it. It's too stinky and I don't want to have that potent odor lingering around all night long. This is why I am flabbergasted to hear that the Stilton Cheesemakers' Association has commissioned a Manchester-based aromatics company to create a wearable Eau de Stilton perfume. The scent will be earthy, yet fruity and feature a "symphony of natural base notes including yarrow, angelica seed, clary sage and valerian." Nigel White, of the SCA, stated:
"Blue Stilton cheese has a very distinctive, mellow aroma and our perfumier was able to capture the key essence of that scent and recreate it in what is an unusual but highly wearable perfume."
I'm a little skeptical, but admittedly, I can't wait to get a whiff of it.
