Smell like New York!

I'm kind of fascinated with these Bond No. 9 fragrances, all named after areas of New York City.

Does Wall Street really smell like citrus, leather and musk? Park Avenue may indeed smell like old ladies (paperwhite, iris, rose and chamomile), but does the Bowery really smell like lime, basil, violet, thyme and oakmoss?

This kind of reminds me of the "South Park" episode where Cartman says his grandmother smelled like "aspirin and pee." Yeah, I don't think that combination would sell for $168 a bottle either.

As someone who lives a block away from the bowery, I can tell you that, although it might seem that lime, basil, violet, thyme and oakmoss are the OBVIOUS choices to describe Bowery....urine, sewer, beer and ashtray are MUCH more accurate.
