    The Linq has a VERY distinctive scent that, in my mind, is a bit overbearing.

    I've always maintained that it's a blend of cigarette smoke, spilled beer & stripper's body-powder. ;)

    That's quite the potpourri. The "Shoe used to have that plus the urine scent from the men's room in the back pit.

    I guess I have to open up a pretzel stand in my house if I want to experience my favorite Vegas aroma at home. Walk into NYNY from the pedestrian bridge between NYNY and MGM Grand and smell freshly baked pretzels (or re-heated? ...honestly, I don't know, I've walked by 100s of times but never actually looked at the pretzel stand!)

    I own the machine and quite a few scents. Best product I've purchased in quite some time. I have my machine set to 20% and the entire house smells.

    When I miss Vegas, I light up a Camel and feel immediately transported to the Orleans. "7 out! Line away!"

    I've told this story before so bear with me. Playing craps in the ElCo late one evening a dude asked of no one in particular, "That smell...that ElCortez smell...what is that? The boxman fiddling around with something with his back to the table immediately said "New money".

    I bought the Cosmo scent oil as a Christmas gift for my wife. I’m very interested to see how it works at home, especially since we’ll be using it in a standard humidifier type diffuser rather than their fancy rig.

    We tried the Walmart wax melts that have been suggested on here previously and didn’t find them to be a great match, so hopefully this works better. I’ll report back if it’s worth the expense once we try it.

    I always thought the Flamingo smelled like coconut. I wonder how they got the scent in the place like pumped it in the AC or maybe sprayed the carpet. The Mirage had sort of the same smell.

    Agree 100%. They definitely dialed down the scent since the early days. I agree it’s the best smelling casino.

    Somebody at work had some coconut something or other at their desk last week... I immediately thought of Mandalay Bay whenever I walked by.

    It’s deliberately pumped into the casinos. I’m not sure if it’s HVAC or some other method. There are a couple of companies that specialize in it.

    Mandalay Bay is another favorite. Probably because once I get that first whiff, I know I'm "home" and ready to chill out for a few.

    that hot vanilla scent that comes out of the vents by the north and south entrances has stayed with me since my first visit

    How about a shout out to vintage Golden Gate aroma? They claimed it was a mold situation under the carpet, but it’s easily recreated by stubbing out a cigarette on a urinal cake. O.G. Dank.

    It hits you before you get in the door, I can smell it as soon as I'm outside the casino, with the entrance doors closed.

    My husband and I spend time at "smelly places" like Bath and Body Works picking out "smellies" for the car and whatnot. He mostly picks things out based on what Vegas casino the smell reminds him of. There was on year BBW really had a lot to pick from, stocked up during that time.

    {Anecdote}
    About 22 years ago I took a trip to Ecuador. While slogging through the Amazon jungle, I inhaled some floral aroma that immediately caused me to visualize the Mirage. I never figured out what it was and I'm sure that was several iterations ago for the Mirage and back when it was the run by Wynn.
    {/Anecdote}

    I don't think I would want these scents in my home because they would become what my home smells like, and takes away an element of the specialness of vacation.

    How long does each bottle of scent last?

    They're good for calming me down when I get stressed out though.
