Perfumery goes green by turning brewery waste into sweet smelling cologne

At Seattle's Blue Marble Energy, chemists are cooking up a perfume made from the waste products of a local organic brewery, including rancid beer grains, green algae and a "sludge" consisting of 50,000 different kinds of bacteria. The grains replace petroleum in the production process making the perfume, called Eos, completely carbon neutral.

Unfortunately, guys, despite the ingredients in Eos, it does not smell like beer. But the handmade perfume by Seattle's "Sweet Anthem" does smell nice.

Eos comes in both masculine and feminine versions.

When asked if one goes better with nachos and the other with chocolate, Sweet Anthem founder Meredith Tucker said, "Well... it's all personal taste."
