A wry view of life for the world-weary

Toilet Roll Of The Week


For the household that has almost everything, I read this week, Tesco have launched a luxury soft tissue bog roll which smells of mulled wine. On sale in all of its UK retail outlets it contains citrol, eugenol, cinnamol, citronella and limonene. According to a spokesperson, “it has a mulled spice fragrance core and a decorated paper for extra indulgence everyday”.

Apart from the obvious why, the other $64,000 question is whether its fragrance is strong enough to mask the odour of digested Brussels sprouts. Only time will tell, I guess.

It has never crossed my mind to sniff a toilet roll but perhaps it will catch on. After all, stranger things have happened this week.
