I think I'll have some spam, egg, spam, spam, bacon and spam.

I don't even want to think about that. I did see bacon scented AS once though. Excuse me, it was cologne.

Mmmm, Stilton scented cologne. Why not Limburger?
While novelty scents might seem interesting in concept they rarely prove to be something you'd use in execution.  Spam?  I picked up a soap and splash set a while back from PAA, it was called 9 and was an homage to Hoppe's 9 gun oil.  I used it once.  It smelled like Hoppe's 9 for sure but as it turned out, I didn't really enjoy the scent that much.  Who knew  Big Grin
I think the enjoyment of a lot of scents is situational - smells good in the environment you use the product in but not so good with your morning shave or all day as an aftershave.  Everybody (almost) enjoys the smell of bacon frying with your morning breakfast and coffee but not so much with your morning shave or all day long as you go about your business.

So then I assume you wouldn't want Stilton or Limburger scented cologne? (If you've never smelled limburger it definitely smells like toe jam, but it tastes delicious once you get it past the nose.) Big Grin

Story... At work each year around Christmas time we'd bring stuff in for the crew. I brought in Limburger and sliced onions and party rye. We were eating it and I made an open face bite for a friend. He partook and immediately spit it out. He had it in his mouth just as the aroma hit his nose and thought it was something best flushed. It took some convincing and his own hand making the bite to try it again. The flavor is totally unlike the aroma.

ShadowsDad that sounds similar to durian fruit. In countries where it’s grown and enjoyed (KL) they say it smells like hell but tastes like heaven. 

My wife had an experience a few years ago when she was traveling from Montreal to the interior of British Columbia. Quebec is known for their artisanal cheeses and she had packed several in her carry on bag. We have an annual wine and cheese party and that one was going to be special. She was on a layover in Vancouver and while sitting in the departure lounge she noticed an unpleasant odour which she assumed was coming from the people nearby. She got up and moved to another seat and could still smell the odour. She checked her bag and realized with horror that she was the stinky one.  Big Grin Oh well, it’s the price you pay. The cheese was excellent.

Marko, I'm gut laughing over that. Decades ago I worked in a factory and we'd have a gent go out every day to buy the makin's for our lunches. We'd place our order and he'd bring it back with change. I loved Tilsit cheese and still do, I just can't find it where I currently live. It's Limburger in training, but the same basic aroma. The guys at the table hated it, but I was in hog heaven.

I would have loved to have seen your wifes face when she realized where the scent was coming from. I can picture it even though I don't know your wife. I wonder how her clothing smelled.

I know ShadowsDad , if it had been me or you or probably almost any other guy we’d have just sat there with a satisfied smirk on our face but my wife, like almost any woman would be, was mortified. I’m chuckling the memory and I wasn’t even there to see it.  The mortification came through in her telling about though.
