The 20 Most Recognized Scents In The World

According to a Yale University study cited by Salon.com and Crayola.

At first glance I saw baby powder and cigarette butts back to back and thought for a split second that they'd listed baby butts. "Yep," I thought to myself, "That's a recognizable scent all right."

Hard to believe B.O. didn't make the list. It's fairly recognizable, particularly on a crowded bus or in France. The smell of desperation is well-known to most adults, too.

1. Coffee
2. Peanut butter
3. Vicks VapoRub
4. Chocolate
5. Wintergreen oil
6. Baby powder
7. Cigarette butts
8. Mothballs
9. Dry cat food
10. Beer
11. Ivory bar soap
12. Juicy Fruit gum
13. Orange
14. Cinnamon
15. Lemon
16. Tuna
17. Banana
18. Crayons
19. Cheese
20. Bleach

From Crayola.com. Click each pic for a much larger view.

Check this out to read more about former colors, how some names were chosen or changed, and much more. Fascinating. Except they don't say what the fuck a cerulean is.

Some of the colors were named by consumers. Maybe we should come up with some of our own. Like Disappointment Gray... Smegma Smudge... Horny Boss Green... Pink Sock... Honky Peach.
