The Scent of Gasoline

Ford has collaborated with fragrance firm Olfiction to create a scent called "Mach-Eau" that smells like gasoline. Or, as they put it, the fragrance has "smoky and rubbery accents reminiscent of the petrol smell so many love." They've done this, they say, for the sake of owners of electric cars who miss the smell of gasoline.

However, it seems that Ford isn't actually selling this fragrance. So we have to take their word for it that they really did create it.

As an ex biker I would want hot engine oil.

I used to own a Harley, so I'd have to get a bottle that leaked.

I assume their test supervisor is Jesco White of Boone County, West Virginia. Jesco huffed gasoline so long he can tell regular from premium by its odor.

@Phideaux I've owned 2 Harleys over 17 years and never had that problem. Toured the US on my Low Rider.
