Sorry, people.

My observations of canine behaviour have opened the door to willy waving nonesense.

I could not have foreseen it.

For some reason I can't explain, Virgin Voyager trains. They stink in a way that is unknown to science.


Dare I say it, a specific type of Australian. I have no idea why but perhaps we smell terrible to them too.

Back in the '60s there was a boiling-down works, Gearin O'Riordans, just up the road from Sydney Airport and the Qantas maintenance base.

Nothing worse, on a hot summer afternoon, working in the wing tanks of a 707, with the aroma of the boiling down works being pumped in to give you 'fresh' air combining with the aroma of jet fuel.

The worst smell in the world has got to be Stinky Tofu, I hear that is has been banned under the Geneva Convention.

Heads Down, look out for the flak

I detest the smell of coffee.
Really!

Sixty-odd years ago when I studied forensic medicine, the lecturer advised on the handling of murdered and other mature and evil-smelling corpses.

The trick, he said, is to have some coffee beans nearby on a hot plate. The smell of the coffee overwhelms the corpse-smell but oddly enough the corpse-smell does not diminish one's taste for coffee. Just one man's point of view, of course.

The toilets on the 2nd floor of the Airbus Final Assembly Hangar in Toulouse in the late '80's

You needed breathing apparatus in that hell hole.

The stale p!$$ smell of some of the homeless people in Sydney - it is a great shame though that self esteem can be evaporated to the point that going in one's pants is just the norm - I have seen it many times.

Dog diarrhoea - OMG Nothing quite like being greeted with a puddle of that in the kitchen at 5.00am

-That unholy stink that is emitted from Muckdonald's.
-Tobacco smoke
-Marijuana smoke
-Dog shite.
-That gear oil that I use in my bus transmission. Smells like cat piss.
FFS, NEVER get it on your overalls - The smell lasts for days, and will survive at least a dozen washes.

Fish oil: In a distant youth one worked aboard chemical tankers and part of the job was to go down and clean the tanks after discharging the cargo.
Fish Oil was the worst, palm oil a distant second. Vodka was rather pleasant, benzine not so.
Them were the days before protective gear and breathing apparatus

...Stinky Tofu...

Is that the one that smells of chunder? Have to agree with that. Got caught out once thinking it was some kind of relish. Came close to topping up the serving bowl.

Cigarette smoke - vile!

There's a plant that's quite common on the Highveld that smells just like fairly fresh BO. I remember going on a 'first date' once and as I arrived at the girl's place I parked the car and caught this whiff of BO ...... which was odd as I was freshly showered, but I went back to my nearby hotel for a shower, and called her to say I was running late.

On returning, I parked the car and caught this whiff of BO .......... whereupon I realised what it was.

Khakibos, CT?

I quite like the smell of khakibos. Almost a tea tree type of smell. Keeps the flies away too.

Different species but too sensitive subject for scientists to acknowledge.
Same with the Welsh and french also.

The smell of "Western" people after I had been travelling for weeks in remote areas of China. Smells like baby poo/vomit which only a mother can endure.
