Want your farts to be fabulous? A 65-year-old French inventor and artist has formulated a product that does just that. The specially formulated pill is designed to make your farts smell as sweet as roses.
In fact, you can create designer farts in two distinct scents. One is a floral scent that hints of roses and violets and the other is a “holiday special edition” that smells like chocolate. The product is called Pilule Pet and was created by French inventor Christian Poincheval, who also goes by the name Lutin Malin—or “Crafty Imp” in English. According to The Telegraph, Poincheval notes that the invention came out of necessity following one particular stinky dinner party with some friends.
“Our farts were so smelly we were nearly suffocated. The winds were not very pleasant for our fellow diners. I had to do something.”
The foul incident gave Poincheval an idea; why not design a product that makes farts smell good? He began researching natural ingredients that would reduce flatulence, and after months of experimentation, he came up with the recipe for his pills which he claims not only reduce flatulence, but actually goes a step further to make any remaining flatulence smell good.
He has been selling the pills since 2006 and says he sells several hundred a month. He notes he has two separate types of clients; those looking for a gag gift and those with real smelly gas issues.
“I have all sorts of customers. Some buy them because they have problems with flatulence and some buy them as a joke to send to their friends. Christmas always see a surge in sales.”
What is in the magic pills that make your farts so fabulous? According to Poincheval, the pills are made from 100% natural ingredients including organic ingredients like blueberries, fennel and seaweed. The pills are also approved for consumption by French health officials.
In an interview posted to Newster, Poincheval says that a bottle of the miracle mixture “costs $12.50 and is the perfect Christmas gift for your smelly friends.”
“There will be a real need for these pills over Christmas.”
Poincheval knows that it isn’t only humans who have offending farts. Therefore, he also created a pet-friendly powder product that is specifically designed for the putrid pooch. The special powder can be added to the dog’s food to give them more pleasant smelling poots.
What do you think of Poincheval’s interesting product? Would you use this product to keep your toots tame? Or should flatulence be left alone to produce common offending odors?
