What a strange scent! O_o
Little back-story for you.

Sometimes, I just buy toiletries while forgetting that I always get some each birthday and Christmas. Last night I remembered, so I got out a gift set I'd got for the Christmas '07 ... and it smells like black tea (adding milk to tea seems to dilute the scent). It's nice, as I know some teas are renowned for being perfumed, but quite strange to have it in soap and shower gel. o_o

Lip-balm seems to be the worst (best?) for this kind of thing - I've come across not only plant, yoghurt, dessert, chocolate scented brands, but also ones that TASTE like apple crumble/chocolate mousse/peach and banana (or rather, it's meant to taste like that. o_o)

My off-topic question, OKP, is this - what's the strangest-scented bubblebath/shower gel/soap/lip-balm - ANYTHING under that umbrella of 'toiletries' - you've heard of or received?

I can't understand why anyone wouldn't!

Breweries, I've found, smell like Marmite (I take AS-level Biology, I don't usually hang around Coors Brewery for the heck of it <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->) so I guess it's a smell you either love or hate?

When they invent aftershave that smells like cider, Strongbow will do, oh my.

I'll either want the guy or five pints of amber nectar . . . but I most always want 5 pints anyway, so there you go.

hahaha.
Yumm cider.. The proper farm-brewed stuff thankyou =)
I live in the home of cider so the fact that I'm only 16 really doesnt matter at all ^_^

lolage.
It's the yeast. And the hops.
And I think I'm the only person ever that finds marmite okay..

With the beer thing. I mean why would you want to smell like you've been on the piss when you haven't even drank anything?

EDIT: I remembered one of my facebook groups.
Cider is from Somerset: It is neither Irish nor was it 'born for ice'

Being 16 matters? Before Magners' marketting, 16 was the average age of a cider drinker anywhere <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

Yep, in fact, the used yeast at Coors Brewery goes to the Marmite factory down the road. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

And don't you KNOW? Smelling like you've drank half an off-licence is such a conversation starter. <!-- sWink --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- sWink -->
