I do not have a 'smells' tag

Ah hah. So the 'Aoyama' incense petronia bought for me at that upscale botique at the island airport is supposed to smell like old houses in Aoyama. Taishou Aoyama, then-- woodsmoke and sandalwood-- because Aoyama doesn't smell like that now. Equally, when burning the incense does smell like old temples; in its box it smells of someone else's notion of White Linen.

(BTW, you can say what you like, but Chanel no.5 doesn't smell the same now as it did in the 60s.)
