Bacon Gold & Classic by Fargginay (2011): Elevates Mood & So Much More {New Fragrances}


Bacon Gold & Bacon Classic by Fargginay might be the very first historical bacon fragrances to see the light of day. If bacon-scented and meaty perfumes already exist, ones that are inspired by the story of a French butcher from the 1920s is a novel twist.

"The year was 1920 and quite by accident John Fargginay, a Parisian butcher discovered the ability to dramatically elevate his customers' mood with a secret recipe blending 11 popular pure essential oils with the essence of...bacon. As the story goes, film stars & heads of state would frequent his shop to procure the magical elixir....


With a wink of the eye and the secret code, "fargginay," customers would be slipped a discreet pouch containing the formula said to trigger pleasant memories. After a massive fire on July 4, 1924, the business was lost and so was the formula…Until now.  Ladies & gentlemen, behold, bacōn fragrances, by fargginay.  The time has come to uncover a new level of awesome." 

Both Bacon perfumes are unisex blends with reportedly subtle hints of bacon, to make them easily wearable while apparently detectable enough to trigger our pleasure pathways. Juding from some of the comments on the website, they can efficaciously substitute for a musk oil.

Bacon Gold "offers a memorable sizzling citrus aroma with an ever so slight hint of bacon and the fun… is in finding it.  This artisanal Gold formula is lovingly crafted with a pure essential oil blend of mandarin, bergamot, grapefruit, lemon, nutmeg, pimento berry, black pepper & a touch of sweet, a smidgen of savory, and one pinch of Bacon salty goodness."

Bacon Classic "is a sophisticated spicy maple fragrance with just a hint of bacon and the fun… is in finding it.  This artisanal Classic formula is lovingly crafted with the pure essential oil blend of bergamot, orange, lime, grapefruit, black pepper, cedar wood, vetiver, guaiacwood and two pinches of Bacon salty goodness."

Each scent is priced at $36.

  1. That's not bacon, it's baloney!

    • I'd like to try them though. They sound like subtle bacon scents, if such things exist. I think they can.
