Scratch and Sniff Baguette Postage Stamp Smells Like a Baguette

France continues to march forward in grandeur nationale, bearing the baguette as its symbol of collective pride. Last Thursday marked a special occasion for that leavened nationalism. It was the feast day of Saint Honoré, the patron saint of bakers. To celebrate, the national postal service released a scratch and sniff stamp that smells like a baguette.

France 24 reports that the stamp has a value of 1.96 Euros. The baguette is embraced with a ribbon showing the red, white, and blue colors of Revolutionary France--the proper order. The postal service is selling a total of 594,000 such stamps.
