Stumped about what to get for the fashionable ladies in your life this holiday season? Well, fear not, ’cause it’s Pizza Hut to the rescue! The pizza chain has unveiled Eau de Pizza Hut, a perfume that smells like her favorite scent — Pizza Hut pizza fresh from the box!

According to MarketWire, Eau de Pizza Hut was launched by Pizza Hut Canada to commemorate reaching 100,000 Facebook fans.

“When our ad team at GRIP brought the idea to us, we absolutely loved it,” said Beverley D’Cruz, Marketing and Product Development Director, Pizza Hut Canada. “What better way to celebrate our Facebook fans than by providing them with a way to enjoy the fresh smell of Pizza Hut pizza whenever they want!”

Only 110 bottles of the limited edition perfume were produced; they were given to Pizza Hut Facebook fans who were first to share their desire for Eau de Pizza Hut on the social networking site.

But now, for the million dollar question: will the scent ever hit shelves?

“Who knows what the future has in store,” says D’Cruz. “The good news is people can enjoy the great smell of fresh Pizza Hut pizza any day of the week by ordering one of our signature crust pizzas.”

Hmm, I smell a marketing strategy…but the thing is, this perfume isn’t really that much more ridiculous than Brad Pitt’s Chanel No. 5 ad, which was hilariously parodied by SNL.

Now, if you really want to impress the lady in your life this Christmas, perhaps the best idea is gift basket based on limited edition and hard-to-find food products. Why not impress your BFF or significant other with a gift basket of Pizza Hut perfume, Hostess products and Crystal Pepsi (Ebay is your friend!)?
