    Naw, some of that stuff smells good to me too!

    What I really like is the polish I use on my bik, "BikeLust"; man, I lust after BikeLust!

    Does a dog's ass smell like a dog's fart? If it does then I know what a dog's ass smells like, an' it's reeeely rank!
    I . . can . . . doooo . . . it

    i was just thinking the exact same thing as i opened the box where i'd packed my bike when returning from a cycling trip
    it's intoxicating isn't it?
    it must be all the memories associated with all the sweet time spent on my bike
    and taking care of it to make sure our happy relationship continues
    it still amazes me that i've never had any issues with it the last 2 cycling tours i went to (in sri lanka)
    through thin and thick, good roads and non existent ones, aggressive drivers and courteous ones, rain or shine
    my name is teobesta and i love the smell of grease
    so happy to have found this post where others feel the same way!

    Do the manufacturers put some kind of flowery scent in this stuff?
    It is likely that scent is added.

    When I read the title of this thread, I thought that the OP was watching "apocalypse now" too much and the lube was the smell of victory.

    Now I have to go to my shop and smell all the lubes.


    ....Ok checked out my lubes, now I' m getting a headache or a buzz. but a couple were kinda sweet, Phil wood tenacious oil didn't have a distinctive scent.

    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    I think you're using the wrong bottle of lube on your bike chain. Might want to return that bottle back to your nightstand drawer.

    I must admit (since this thread has been resurrected) that I really like the smell of mineral spirits. I never mind when it's time to clean a chain, and I may be guilty of cleaning one or two before it was absolutely necessary.
