    Have you ever wondered what something smells like? Feels like? Tastes like? This is the thread for you. Let's talk about it!

    Here's mine: I've always wondered what ambergris smells like. I've heard it smells both disgusting and amazing at the same time and I wonder what a scent that is concurrently disgusting and amazing smells like.









    Thanks for the reps, @smichal and @Cylon! :-D

    Thank you for responding, @Winston Ono. This is the first thread I've started and I thought it was going to die a virgin.







    Thank you for the reps, @Lola. :-D

    Nope. Definitely thinking of ambergris. But now that you've mentioned it, I don't think I've ever smelled Limburger cheese either.

    Well, at upwards of $10,000 a pound, I'd gladly stumble upon a large chunk at the beach and risk exposing myself to the smell, whatever it may be. ;)

    :jj:

    Before your edit, I read this as you first posted it when your autocorrect had replaced limbergris with "limber grins" and I swear I thought you were referring to the distinctive aroma associated with this particular "grin", for which one must certainly be limber:

    Welp. This was clearly a dumb idea for a thread.

    I don't even know what it is, so I Googled it ... And Google doesn't even know what it is. Give me a another one and I'll tell you what it smells like.

    I've heard the durian fruit has a strong unpleasant odor and wonderful taste. The description of it is "tastes like heaven, stinks like hell".

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durian for more information.

    Durian is another one I'm curious about. I can't imagine its awful stench, but amazing flavor. LOL.

    I have passed it at a farmer's market, even wrapped in cellophane - it's smells quite literally of musty vomit. I don't know how people get it under their nose to even get into their mouth.
