Mmmm .... Germolene

When I was a kid, I used to love the smell of Germolene.


.
It used to come in a round tin, and I would quite often lift the lid for a smell ... I wanted to be able to eat it.
.
When I was a teenager, Ronald started selling McRoot Beer which, to me, tasted just like the smell of Germolene.
.

.
One day, Ronald stopped selling McRoot Beer, probably on the grounds that there were only about 3 of us that liked it.
.
Imagine my delight when my dentist (yes, her again) recommended this toothpaste
.
.
It tastes just like the smell of Germolene! AND it whitens your teeth!
.

.
Okay, so how weird am I?

Haha! I love it! I'm not sure how Germolene smells, but I understand the sentiment. I have the same thing with a certain type of plastic wrap, for example. :D

I have always loved the smell of it too! I was always scraping my knees and elbows as a child so my mom often got that little yellow tin out! I've always loved the smell and taste of bonjela too.

I adore the smell of Germolene. When I was young my dad used to take me to football matches (Preston!) and I loved it when the players got near the touchline. they had some linament that smelled just like it!
By the way thanks for the blog link. I'll do the same.
