What does it smell like when you put perfume on a rotten chicken?

I know, because I have done this.

Yes, tell me, too. Also let us know why you did it.

My guess is that it just makes it smell even more rotten.

GA simply because this is such a weird questions and I’m extremely intrigued. :P

Sort of like putting lipstick on a pig.

It sweetens the pervasive smell of the rot. Makes it ‘catchy’ and totally impossible to ignore. Instead of being a smell that catches you off guard occasionally and disgusts you, if becomes a smell that constantly invites you to vomit.

One time I had a chicken set out on the gas stove to thaw and was unexpectedly called away for the holiday. Forgot to put the chicken away. Not only did it thaw, but the juices ran in under the cooktop and rotted. I tried to cover it up with something sweet smelling and for 6–8 weeks wanted to vomit whenever I was within 2 foot of the stove.

Probably would’ve been better to use something to absorb the malodor, such as bicarbonate of soda.

I can only imagine!

I did, @Yetanotheruser. I tried burying it in baking soda, and the smell just held on, and on.

Accessibility was a problem, as it was only the coagulated juices that had rotted.
