The fascination will never end: A new durian cosmetic

Is Elianto’s durian-flavoured lipstick for real?

Here’s how the company described it:

Elianto said that the pesticide-free lipstick features a strong durian aroma that gives the wearer a “sense of satisfaction similar to gobbling a mouthful of Musang King at one go.”

And here’s the over-pitch:

“….this scientific marvel is even said to be able to cure hangover and prevent alcoholic blackout”

Hmm…..quite unlikely at lipstick dose.

The lipstick isn’t for sale yet, I can’t see how yellow lipstick would flatter anyone in or out of the office. So it’d be a great gag gift but not one that you might particularly enjoy receiving even if you like durian. That’s why we all wash our hands and rinse our mouths clean of the durian aromas afterwards.

Conceal as you may, the burps will always reveal the thorny truth. 🙂

Ps. Elianto, if you do launch it, please send me a Musang king lipstick to check out…..

Durian flavoured condoms

Well this article was certainly enlightening. I had no idea there would be a market for a durian flavoured condom. 

Apparently a company in Bangkok is commencing production of these. Whether their market survey showed that it would be profitable as a promo gimmick or a staple product, would be interesting to know… 

And, they’re not the first to produce durian flavoured condoms

either, an Indonesian company was the pioneer in this area.. I wonder whether sales of this product has been good. You can see on their website (Sutra Fiesta) that they package the condom with other sex toys…
There is a prevailing idea that durian inspires kinkiness and perhaps sex.. But the point is that the fruit itself is a huge source of energy to power a night of passion… I’m just not sure the scent or flavour of it is enough to do the same.
