Deodorant Designed to be Eaten

Way to think outside the box.

"An American company called Deo Perfume Candy has created a type of sweet that releases a lingering rose scent through the pores of your skin.

Due to be launched in the UK early next year, one mouthful of the tangerine-flavoured sweets will apparently keep you smelling of roses for up to six hours.

They've already been a great success in America, despite their price- a small bag costs $10 (£6.25).

The sweets contain chemical compounds that cannot be broken down by the body and so are excreted through the skin.

The main ingredient, which provides the floral scent, is geraniol- a naturally occurring compound that us found in roses, lavender and vanilla.
