Fill Your Home With the Stench of a Garage With This New Petrol-Scented Fragrance Oil

By Shabana Arif on at

If you love winding down your window to breathe in the heady aroma of gasoline, you'll be thrilled to know you can bring the smell home, with none of the flammability.

UK candle maker, Cosy Owl, has launched the new fragrance for all you lunatics out there who love to get in a furtive whiff at the petrol pump. After running a poll on the more non-traditional scents that people like to snuffle up, petrol came up smelling like roses - roses doused in fuel. Richard Fewings, managing director of the company, said:

“When deciding our 2020 product range, we wanted to get the opinion of the public on which scents they would most like to see introduced. We were looking for quirky fragrances to add into our range, and as petrol (45%) was voted as the most desirable scent this will now be added to our range as a new fragrance oil. You don’t just have to be a petrolhead to be a fan of this unusual scent!”

After taking votes on social media, petrol managed to beat out such contenders as cow manure, Andrex toilet roll, prosecco, and orange blossom. Cheesy garlic bread wasn't included, but Subway has that covered with its Ultimate Cheesy Garlic Bread Reed Diffuser, sure to penetrate the nasal passages and fabrics of every home.

There are only four reviews for the petrol fragrance oil on the website, and it's sitting at 4.5/5 stars, so seems to be doing the job for most people. It's currently sold out, which is a surprise, so I guess there's a lot of homes out there smelling like an arsonist's wet dream. You can grab a tester bottle of oil for less than £2, or go all out on one litre.
