Crackling Cologne: Chicago Man Releases New Bacon Based Fragrance

Ever stop at a truck stop and think, “Gosh, I wish I could smell like this bacon everyday to drive women crazy.” Well, wait no longer. Chicago’s John Leydon has released “Bacon” by Fargginay, which will give you that “fresh from the diner” smell.

You can choose between “Bacon Classic” (with a “spicy maple aroma) and “Bacon Gold” (“sizzling citrus.”) for $36 a bottle.

You can wear it on a date to Denny’s which has introduced Bacon Sundaes.

Leydon insists that the fragrance is perfectly unisex — both sexes can be improved by smelling like a short-order cook.

After all, pigs were the product of “husbandry” going back for centuries.

The brand is named after John Fargginay, a Parisian butcher “who accidentally uncovered a ‘magical elixir’ of oils and the essence of bacon in 1920.”

By the way, I recommend that you put on your bacon cologne before using your bacon torch:

  1. And I did SWM….


    Your typos’ are not typical typos….

  2. AY sez: “I think that there was something symbolic about the apple and snake…”


    I would not touch that line with a staff of any length. (Wanders off mumbling…..)

  3. BIL, there is a local Chinese restaurant the has alligator on the menu. It is excellent, and the way they prepare it leaves it quite tender. Not like fish of course, but not at all rubbery.

  4. I’ll have to side with the rattlesnakes are good team. Not crazy about frog legs, but they are edible. Turtle Soup is one of my all time favorites with a splash of sherry. Alligator isn’t bad either, but like OS noted, poorly prepared it’s not just chewy, it’s chewy as Hell. Literally you can hurt you jaw chewing it. And very few people know how to prepare it properly.

  5. rattlesnakes are good. i used to go to the rattlesnake rodeo in opp alabama. losts of different ways to cook, fried or in a gumbo is best (my opinion).

    alligators, froglegs, turtles reptiles taste good.

    beats sending them to washington

  6. SWM.

    That relish you gave me…was tasty…. but even with that…I don’t think that any critters would taste better with it…


    I think that there was something symbolic about the apple and snake…but hey…what do I know…


    I think I have heard it call Nowlins….but what can I say…

  7. Tex has eaten rattlesnake on several occasions and when in Now Orleans he eats alligator sausage. The only food the man refuses is beets.

  8. AY the snake talked Eve into eating the fruit. She should have eaten the snake instead. So I try to correct the injustice by snacking on snake. Rattlesnake is plentiful, not endangered and quite tasty. I also like alligator, but improperly prepared it tends to be a bit chewy.

  9. OS,

    I must confess…. All snakes are deferred to…They are All after all the healing magic of the Medical Profession…. If you don’t believe me…so at the staff and the snake is intertwined… you know that came straight out of the bible… I stay away from them and the staff…

  10. OS, I eat crayfish etouffee in cajun country but that is about as exotic as I get with the critters.

  11. AY, I spent some of my formative years growing up in Louisiana. One develops a taste for some esoteric foods there. The Cajun folks will eat all the parts of a critter except the grunt or growl.

    Have you ever eaten rattlesnake, or is that a professional courtesy thing too? 😀

  12. SWM,

    I haven’t…. When is dinner? I am pretty much up for everything…but fish heads…intestines…lamb, goat, sheep, horse, dog, cat, squirrel…you get the jest….I like Beef pretty much any flavor… Swine….and most sea foods…. some are still off limits like shark, catfish…a professional courtesy thing…

  13. I used to make an amatriciana sauce with pancetta, Elaine. Don’t make it anymore. Everyone has cut back on the amount of pasta they eat.

    when they come out with the douche call me.


    Okay, everybody but pete.

  15. I was thinking that we are all just very interested in food though you are all probably right when mentioning relief from the serious … yet, it is only Tuesday and usually we save getting silly for Fridays so … I’m going to go with we love food … and trading recipes … and beer … and …

  16. pickled penis anyone ?

    LONDON – In life, Pall Arason sought attention. In death, he is getting it: The 95-year-old Icelander’s pickled penis will be the main attraction in one of his country’s most bizarre museums.

    Sigurdur Hjartarson, who runs the Phallological Museum in the tiny Icelandic fishing town of Husavik, said Arason’s organ will help round out the unusual institution’s extensive collection of phalluses from whales, seals, bears and other mammals.
