The Truffle Shuffle

What would Pepe le Pew think of the Perigord truffle, which is described like this:

The classic black truffle smells of lust: soil, mold, garlic, sweat, ripe mushrooms, hazelnuts, sweet onions, an animal in heat.

For many humans, it’s a good stink. But a truffle farmer in Burgundy is pushing the less odoriferous Bourgogne one. Maybe it’s not as attractive, but it’s more available and affordable.
