Weight-Loss Perfume: Smells Like A Scam

Just when you think the universe is finally tapped out on wacky weight-loss tools, the fragrance industry throws its hat into the ring. That's right, Velds has just released Prends-Moi, a fragrance designed to "slim with pleasure."
This Parfum de Minceur (rough translation: thinning perfume) features sparkling top notes of caffeine, carnitine, and spirulina — mmm. With this magic combo, the fragrance claims to reduce the need to snack by 75%. Another not-real-but-kind-of-creepy-sounding stat? A surprising 73% of users claimed to experience a "feeling of pleasure." We'd kind of like them to elaborate on that ... but kind of not.
