Ever wish your sweet tooth could do something good for your body? Now, thanks to new Deo Perfume Candy, it can.

The new lollies are the brainchild of US ingredients company Beneo and Bulgarian confectionary company Alpi.

According to its makers, once Deo Perfume Candy is consumed, a rose fragrance is released through the skin’s pores, and lasts for for up to six hours. It works similarly to foods such as garlic or spices, which can make skin smell after consumption.

This unusual beauty treat is already on shelves in Europe and Asia and can also be bought online from Amazon.
