    For me this doesn't occupy a high place on my list of favored "smells."

    Confession: I find the smell of skunk (animal, not plant) really invigorating at a safe distance.

    Yeah, I kinda like that stale beer/bar smell.

    Since I discovered Kouros (and I love Kouros) I find that when I walk around the city and pass by a spot outside a bar, say, that's been used for years as an impromptu toilet then what happens now is that when I sniff the air I go 'Ah, Kouros - how delightful!' instead of 'Yuck, stale piss - how revolting!'.

    So Kouros has changed the way that parts of the world actually smell to me - which is to say that the associations that are now triggered in relation to particular odours are different and these associations have pleasant affects attached to them instead of unpleasant affects.

    So no, I don't think that liking the smell of stale beer makes you weird, I think it makes you someone that has identified a smell they like.

    (If you liked the smell of your victims beneath the floorboards, however...)

    I love the smell you get when walking past/into a pub.

    Bar smell! Yeah.. I love that boozy atmosphere, but not sure about empty beer can thing, eh..

    Liking weird smells is nothing unusual though. Personally, I love the smells of complex hydrocarbons, such as kerosene, bitumens, diesel and, naturally, gasolene blends

    Then you should try Le Labo Oud 27. It's got that dank maltiness.

    Stale beer, no....lime flavored beer, YES! Although, if given the choice I would rather be drinking it instead.

    You and me both! I'm in scent heaven whenever I work on my motorcycle or take my car to the mechanic.

    A while ago I started a thread about liking the smell of cat breath. But in that case, it turns it was only me. :-)

    I also love the smell of my old truck. Gas, oil, vinyl, leather, rubber, exhaust all baked in the sun. It's a good smell. It's a tough scent to describe, but anyone who has been in an older carbureted truck knows what I'm talking about. Smells like man-work or like the smell of a dad or grandfather....if that makes sense.

    Makes total sense. Given your description above, I highly recommend you get your nose on Santa Maria Novella Nostalgia -- leather, gas, oil and tire rubber mixed to perfection.

    This is strange and hilarious. When I saw the title for this thread, I came on here to write exactly this!

    I don't always chime in on zombie threads. But when I do, it's to praise the smell of distant skunk.
