Beauty & Hygiene Curiosity #2: Wiener Bouquet

20 Jan

Wiener Bouquet

I can’t remember where I bought this bottle of Wiener Bouquet perfume, but as you can imagine, it caught my attention immediately. Yes, I know the “w” is pronounced like a “v”, and Wiener is German for Vienna. Doesn’t matter. (It smells like a smelly flowery perfume, by the way.)

Perfume that actually smells of wieners may not seem like a good idea, but there is a bacon scented perfume out there (pronounced Bay-CON), so what the heck?

The tie-in to the food blog is, of course, wieners. My 1950 edition of the Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedic Cookbook has a recipe for a real Wiener Bouquet with their Stuffed Crown Roast of Frankfurters. That black & white photo makes me feel a little sad somehow.

Here’s one in colour that’s not a whole lot more uplifting. There’s just something about a cooked wiener that begs to be hidden in a bun. This is a Weight Watchers recipe from 1969. I think maybe Weight Watchers were a little confused in early days.

Got a special someone in your life? A manly man mayhaps? Splash on some meat fragrance and cook him up a bouquet o’ wieners!
