The London Underground, locally called “the Tube,” is being spritzed with the scent of French roses in order to mask odors, reports that city’s Times. In actual fact, the fragrance is the French import, Eau de Madeleine. As of Monday, the 148-year-old transportation system, the world’s oldest underground, smelled of what the Times described as a floral bouquet of rose and jasmine combined with citrus top notes, giving way to strong woody accents and a hint of sweetness. The Paris Metro has smelled that way since 1998.
