Re: True Jem Case Experience are they scented?

I always thought I must have OCD or something having enjoyed the smell of a freshly opened pink case because the late 80's/early 90's cases definitely had a "sweet" smell. Much nicer than the glue smell of the black, blue and later maroon fur cases. Of course I've probably got about 6 coats of shiny nostalgia in my head blurring reality as well. Nonetheless, I feel some resolution having seen someone else finally bring this up. It's like a SA support group.

There's a lot of people sniffing stuff here on this site.

Re: True Jem Case Experience are they scented?

I had a case for my Paul Stanley model Ibanez Iceman and it smelled like glue. I used to have the old pink lined case for one of my Jems and it smelled like glue. I just bought a new case for my Jem with the deep red/maroon interior and it smells like cotton candy! I am dissappointed, I like the smell of glue!

No, it's glue. I know what glue smells like.

Re: True Jem Case Experience are they scented?

I love the smell of Carvin cases - a pair of Carvins were the first 2 guitars I ever reviewed for a magazine. So to me they smell like ...*sniffs* accomplishment.

Re: True Jem Case Experience are they scented?

yeah or some cleaning stuff they use to clean the case before putting the guitar in. Gibson's new cases smell like vanilla.

If by saying "Cotton Candy" you mean "Cigarette Smoke" then YES.


Actually, I just went and sniffed mine and it DOES have some sort of stale cotton candy smell. Kinda like cotton candy that's been tucked in your ass pocket since last year's county fair.

My 89 77FP case smelled like chocolate. As did my bassists' case for his Soundgear. It was the weirdest thing.

And everything did not smell like cotton candy back in the 80's, it smelled like Aqua Net or Stiff Stuff (also hairspray for those follically challenged folks)
