Oh, you ever had Crystal Pepsi? Well when I first opened a can of that stuff it gave me very blunt smell memory and I could never quite place it. A few years later when I was at seaside in Portland, Oregon I walked into an old shop for gifts and such and I smelled that famous scent once again. It was the pungent stench of that stuff you squeezed out of a small tube and put on the end of a plastic straw to blow a chemical bubble and you could handle them with your hands and they wouldn't pop cause you could just re-seal them again by pinching it. Remember that? Same smell as crystal pepsi, I kid you not.
