rutee071198635dI have tired sniffing the ones that stayed in the microwave for too long or the smell of lead soldering. The best crack so far is the mixture of lead and melting human protein.
Try hot sparks and aluminum dust from an angle grinder
Lung problems et. al.
10/10 would recommend

Nanos960735dI'm reminded of:
Old stuff smells of phenolic based circuit boards. No longer made, nasty ingredients. That 'sharp', hot smell.
I've got an unused board of it someplace in the garage here..
You sometimes smell it on really old aircraft !
Smells from Technics and Panasonic are the same (both Matshusita), but differs from Sony. And these from Luxman, Pioneer, all distinctive. The NAD I recently resurrected was almost odeurless, a bit dull. My Thorens TD160 has stopped breathing altogether, but the tube from the SME3 tonearm is unique.
Bought a solderstrip recently. Sniffing and back in memory lane.
Old wartime instruments have an almost addictive smell especially if the case is airtight.
zlot37635dI do love the smell of solder in the morning.
PrivateGER1802234dnothing beats inhaling lead solder fumes
