Friday Five: Scents that don't make sense

I'm not going to dwell on this, but the perfumes used to cover odours in the toilet seem to me a little odd. Pine forests, lavender flowers, and spring blossoms are popular, leading to the unsettling feeling that something may have taken root in the soil in there. 'Clean Linen' bothers me with the suggestion that someone may have inadvertently muddled the laundry and water closets. Ocean breezes are also often used, conjuring the worrying thought that the cistern has flooded.
Air fresheners should certainly freshen the air by chemical means, but who wants their lavatory to smell of home baking? I find fake food fragrances particularly sensorially discombobulating.

5 Disconcerting Smells from the Smallest Room:
  1. Vanilla
  2. Sparkling Citrus
  3. Apple Cinnamon
  4. Frangipani & Mango
  5. Fresh Berries
