Well, my nose isn`t small, and air`s free as they say in Israel . . . but the smell of the innards of a piano? or a Hammond Organ/ leslie speaker are almost unique. And bring back happy memories. Like the smell of stale beer amidst the electronic circuitry which belies one or two mishaps . . . and its working environment. . . .

The inside of my piano does have it's own particular smell. On a related note, the smell of motor oil and french fry grease on a hot day reminds me of amusement parks.
