    "Does it smell like this shoe filled with raw meat I saw floating in a storm drain while walking to work this morning?"

    French fragrance company Diptyque Paris recently announced they will be selling a candle that captures the scent of New York City.

    Yes, that's right. The aroma of NYC. What imagery could that possibly conjure? Well, the people of Twitter had a few thoughts on the matter.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
