Not Even Your Nostrils or Tastebuds Are Safe

In Vera Wang's ongoing campaign to invade every part of our lives, including our olfactory faculties, the designer and Macy's have dreamed up an absurd promotion. Pastry Chef Johnny Iuzzini will create desserts inspired by Vera Wang's perfume, "Princess." Iuzzini will give in-store demonstrations and talk about the relationship between scent and fine food. Some of the sweets inspired by perfume include Warm Apple-Orange Confit with Spiced Apple Cake. Pretty imaginative, considering the scent's actual ingredients include isocetyl stearate, propylene glycol, stearic acid, caprylic/capric triglyceride, and water. (Images via Macy's)
