Question of the Week: Want to Smell Like BBQ?

Pork Barrel's new Que fragrance got us thinking

The minds behind the Pork Barrel BBQ company, which will open its first restaurant in Del Ray (we’ve been told) relatively soon, have concocted an idea so audacious, well, we’ll just let the press release speak for itself:

“It is with great pride that we announce to the world the debut of Que, the world’s first fragrance blend of barbeque's essential aromas. Que is an intoxicating bouquet of spices, smoke, meat and sweet summer sweat that is sure to become a hit among all fragrance lovers!

“Recognizing the absence of a barbeque-scented cologne and perfume, we worked with a team of craftsmen and fine perfumers to create the perfect barbeque aroma and believe Que has the potential to change the way the fragrance world operates in the future.”

Don't believe it? Check out these commercials.

The idea got us thinking: Is there an aroma produced in other Del Ray businesses that strikes a particular chord with you? Would you consider bottling this aroma and wearing it? Perhaps the odor of coffee at ? Maybe the smell of bread coming from the Gold Crust Bakery (which , by the way)? What about the farmers market?

Please, be as creative as possible.

Woh, I would love it if I could buy some coffee-scented potpourri for our home! Please, St. Elmo's!

Interesting promotion for Pork Barrel. But seriously, is that restaurant ever going to be finished and open?

What is Que supposed to attract? Dogs?
