As part of a Facebook marketing ploy by Pizza Hut, the company decided to launch its own perfume.
“The limited edition perfume was designed to commemorate Pizza Hut Canada reaching 100,000 Facebook fans. Only 110 bottles were produced and shared with lucky Facebook fans who won a bottle by being among the first to share their desire for Pizza Hut perfume.”
The new fragrance from Pizza Hut Canada — a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, Inc. — vaunts an aroma of freshly baked, hand-tossed dough.
“When our ad team at GRIP brought the idea to us, we absolutely loved it,” says Beverley D’Cruz, Marketing and Product Development Director, Pizza Hut Canada.
“What better way to celebrate our Facebook fans than by providing them with a way to enjoy the fresh smell of Pizza Hut pizza whenever they want!”
According to Beverley D’Cruz, Pizza Hut perfume may or may not hit the department stores, only time will tell.
“For now, we’ve only produced 110 bottles of Eau de Pizza Hut, but who knows what the future has in store,” says D’Cruz.
“The good news is people can enjoy the great smell of fresh Pizza Hut pizza any day of the week by ordering one of our signature crust pizzas.”

French designer Philippe Starck and a Franco-American scientist, David Edwards, invented a spray called “Wahh Quantum Sensations”.
The spray device is housed in an aluminum tube designed by Philippe Starck.
Edwards claims each spray dose consists of 0.075 milliliters of alcohol, but when aerosolized by the spray’s unique mechanism, the dose makes you feel fully intoxicated, though only briefly.
The state of intoxication only last for a few seconds, and once the effects wear off, you’ll be able to pass a breathalyser.
Edwards also invented “Whif”, which sold 400,000 units, and is another spray that allows the user to experience the taste of chocolate, coffee, and tea.
“Whif” was followed by “Whaf”, a generator of flavor clouds from liquid mixtures made by the user (the martini lemon pie) and generated by an ultrasound system integrated in a carafe, developed with the culinary designer Marc Bretillot.
