I also like the smell of the XW's and the Baader Zoom though I don't know how much of it is coming from the eyepiece or the pluck foam they reside in most of the time.

Eau de Dob Parfum, a new fragrance by Explore Scientific, coming Black Friday 2013.
Some enterprising astronomer should come out with a line of bakelite and sonotube air fresheners for vehicles and such.

Baader Clicklocks always smell kinda funky.
The 2" Clicklock does, but not the 1.25". I guess it must be the rubber grip, which the smaller version lacks.
The 2" smell really is quite bad - I wonder if one could get rid of it be removing the rubber gip, and throughly claning it with water and detergent?

Mmmm, New scope smell.
My XT8 is losing it
Same problem here with my 3 year old Z10
But good news!...That new smell can be brought back by flocking your scope with new velvet. Plus you help the OTA. Flocking my scope cut down on the spider vane spikes by about 70%...and it smelled fabulous.
Smell ya later!

There is something vaguely perverse about this thread. GW
Quoted for truth.
I have synasthesia, so reading this thread smells purple to me.
