Did you know there are actually pills that make farts smell like flowers and chocolate?

Yep, that’s true. They are also available in other scents so as to make your farts smell like lily, violet, ginger, and roses. While the idea might gross you out in the first instance, it is somewhat practical.

Imagine being in packed car with your friends and having to roll down the windows because of the awful stench emanating from someone’s bottom. Disgust turns into humor of some in such a scene but the one who passed the gas can certainly not outrun the moment’s embarrassment.

It’s all the more of a dealbreaker if you face such a conundrum while on a date.

The manufacturer of these pills

The ‘natural’ pills made using ‘kitchen ingredients’ have been devised by a French inventor named Christian Poincheval. The company behind this endeavor is Lutin Malin.

Taking about how the idea of scented flatulence pills came into his mind, Poincheval said, “we were at table with friends after a copious meal when we nearly asphyxiated ourselves with our smelly farts. The gas wasn’t that great for our table neighbours. So, something had to be done about this.”

Apart from the fart pill, which came out in 2004, the French inventor has also created printable toilet papers. These toilet papers have stories written on them, allowing people to have a good time on the toilet seat.

Though Poincheval said, “you can disguise the sound of a fart but not the stench” we wouldn’t really agree with that. The no.1 concern that people have with these pills is that it doesn’t make their gas bombs sound like singing, birds chirping or spraying. Needless to say, the sound of a fart can also be difficult to hide most of the times and is equally mortifying.

So how do these scented fart pills work?

Basically, you are supposed to take the scented fart pills regularly, from about 2 to 6 capsules per day, for results to show. You are supposed to take the pills with meals. These natural pills will make your farts smell better. However, the results you get hugely depend on your dietary habits and condition.

Now the thing is, what if you are wasting your money over something that may or may not work? The makers of the pill say that they do work and have proved that by showing off some customer’s feedback.

Overall, the company doesn’t receive as many testimonials, explaining that that is because people are not willing to talk about such stuff and the company doesn’t insist them on sharing feedback anymore. As for the shipping, it is discreet enough that you can also order without feeling ashamed.

Are there any pills for dogs?

The stench of a pooch’s gas poo can also be pretty difficult to bear. Interestingly, there is a product for improving the stench of flatulence for dogs as well sold by another company. Instead of packing the ingredients into capsules, this company sells scented flatulence powder. Pet parents can mix the powder into the meals of their dogs for easy intake.
