Worst. Scent. Ever!


I, too, enjoy a lovely autumn day in Manhattan. But wanting to smell like NYC? Not a good idea!

Still, if you must, purchase yours here.

Every time I have to take the scooter into the center I come back smelling like downtown Athens.

Top notes- summer dumpster, a hint of homeless man.

Middle notes- late night subway car, bus depot public restroom

Base notes- vehicle exhaust, sewer vent, and finally aroma of crime scene.

New York, better smell like it than live in it!

If they came out with a "I Love Chicago" line the one I would buy is the "Maxwell Street Polish sausage" scent. Probably the only smell associated with a big city that wouldn't knock a buzzard off a gut wagon.

A pleasant summer's evening, mid July, when the temperature has dropped from 95 down to a balmy 93 after dark, the strike in it's third week. The smells of the dinner remnants of hundreds of households float gently down the block. Restaurant dumpsters, hospital dumpsters, and hotel dumpsters all adding their unique scents to the city...

Like that? :cheese:

I haven't smelled this one, but the rest of the line are well-made, whether or not they are to one's taste.

I must allow I have almost no experience of smelling genuine NYC air, but I lived in France for a few years, so I can imagine. Eau de M├ętro...

My favorite bad smell description is JK Rowling's description of a troll's BO: a mixture of dirty socks and the sort of public bathroom no one s=ever seems to clean.

You may, just be a bit biased, no? 😉
