Pizza Hut perfume smells like ‘hand-tossed dough’
Washington Post ^ | 12/06/2012 | Caitlin Dewey

Pizza Hut may have discovered a new route to a man’s heart — through his nose.

The chain is releasing the limited-edition scent, which smells of “freshly baked, hand-tossed dough,” in response to an Internet joke that began last August.

According to a company news release, Pizza Hut Canada’s marketing firm, Grip Ltd., asked the chain’s Facebook fans what they would name a perfume that smelled like “a box of Pizza Hut pizza being opened.” When the post went viral — earning more than 300 frenzied comments — they decided to make good on the gag. (Pizza Hut)

An aromachologist brewed 110 bottles of Eau de Pizza Hut, which the chain sent to 110 Facebook fans. The perfume commemorates Pizza Hut Canada reaching 100,000 Facebook fans, according to the news release.

The process was not always tasty, though, marketing director Beverly D’Cruz told the Global and Mail. “All of them were not fun,” she said. “Cheese. You’d think cheese smells nice. Not so.”

That is funny.

I wonder how many of those 110 fans immediately put it on E-Bay?

The 3rd hour cardboard smell might be a turn-off.
The 5th hour nasty sausage smell will be a turn-off.

“That’s Amore”

(In Napoli where love is king
When boy meets girl here’s what they say)

When the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie
That’s amore
When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine
That’s amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you’ll sing “Vita bella”
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella

When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
That’s amore
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You’re in love
When you walk down in a dream but you know you’re not
Dreaming signore
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
That’s amore

“Cheese. You’d think cheese smells nice. Not so.”

All depends on who cuts it.

Who would want to smell like that? I have a new love- pure
white linen light breeze. Ladies, what’s your favorite?

This pizza dough thing doesn’t surprise me, considering the latest trend of women wanting to smell like honey and brown sugar. Ugh!

I can’t stand fragrances that are sweet or too overpoweringly floral. My mother-in-law, bless her, gave me a bottle of Flowerbomb. It gags me to take the cap off the bottle.

My current perfume love is Chanel Chance Au Fraiche....it’s a fresh green scent. It’s even a pretty light green color in the bottle.

Same with me. I can’t sand overly sweet, sweetly fruity or floral perfumes. It might have something to do with getting stranded and spending the night in a floral shop right before Valentine’s Day during the blizzard of February 12-13th 1983. To this very day, I still can’t stand the smell of roses.

I’ll have to check that out. My current favorite is Estee Lauder Sensuous but I also like Carolina Herrera 212. I like perfumes that have more woody or musky tones or ones with spicy or citrus or fresh green undertones.

LOL, I can understand how your flower shop experience turned you off on floral scents. I’m not a big fan of the smell of roses to begin with.

I have Sensuous, too. I’ll have to check out Carolina Herrera 212.

I am a big fan of musky. The hotter you get the better it smells. lol When I was younger and was cocktailing I always wore Tabu. It was cheap and by the end of the night smelled wonderful.
Right now I am hooked on Poeme by Lancome.
I wore Jadore by Dior before Poeme.

Pure White Linen light breeze has a light citrus smell that I like. Got tired of the floral spicy types.

Is Poeme a musky-type scent?

I’m going to try that one next time I’m near a fragrance counter. It sounds like it would be nice for spring and summer.

It has a musky undertone that stays with you.
