Smells are important: primal, even. Anyone’s who has smelled an infant’s scalp knows this. My daughters smell like roses and ice cream.
I take the bus to and from work each day, and I can tell you more about how my bus-mates smell than what they look like. Yesterday a chap parked next to me and smelled like he’d spent the night sleeping in his car buried in cigarettes.
You can smell when someone’s been drinking; it’s like the scent of decayed lettuce hanging like a balloon in the air.
Sometimes teenagers fill the bus in the morning on their way to school. They smell like candy and a combination of corn chips and raspberry licorice.
Last night a young woman sat beside me and I thought she might be an artist or school teacher. She smelled oddly familiar, and it took a few minutes before I pinned down the scent. She smelled like Play Dough.
If you decided to market the smell I figure you’d have to invent a toilet water and call it something like Play D’eau.
