It sure does! Well…the paper currency does.
I visited Canada twice last year. First time I flew to Ottawa, Ontario in May and the second time I drove up to Abbotsford, British Columbia from down here in Southern California in August. So before I drove back home, I had to make sure that I brought back some fresh Canadian currency.
When I left Abbotsford, I stopped by the shop at the US/Canadian border to buy a few things an received one of the brand new $10 for Canada’s 150th anniversary. I was so stoked that I just wanted to smell it. And once I did, I had to smell it again. Yup, smells like maple syrup!
I had forgotten about this until I was reminded somehow today that Canadian money smells like maple syrup. I had to take it out of my wallet and smell it again. Yep, still smells like maple syrup!
