What's that Smell?

I'm sure most of you know that I really like cheese. Actually, maybe none of you know that. I don't really care. Point being, I like cheese. A lot. Some day, I'd even like to be a maitre de fromage (a sommelier, but for cheese). However, as much as I like cheese, I don't want to smell like it.

I heard on NPR today that British (English, to be more specific) Stilton producers, in an effort to educate people and encourage them to try eating Blue Stilton cheese as part of everyday meals, have commissioned a Stilton perfume. I suppose that's a good and unique marketing scheme, but if you ask me, the last thing anyone would want to smell like is blue cheese. Don't get me wrong, I sprinkle blue cheese on my salad every night; I love the stuff. But to smell like it, no thanks. According to the press release, the perfume is "eminently wearable". I encourage all of you to try this perfume and report back to me, as I'm curious to see the results. I suppose, if you really want to smell like blue cheese, you could just rub some on your face. It's probably good for your skin anyway....
