Re: “A map of Halifax's most notable smells

Perhaps there should be a heritage category for fragrances that were well know but have disappeared (like Ben's shortly). The most well know was Moir's Chocolates when their large factory was next to the Grand Parade (where the WTCC is today). The delicious chocolate smell would sometime mingle with a whiff of salt cod that dried on the roof of the AM Smith fish plant, where the new section of the Maritime Museum is located. Subtler was the fragrance on Mayflower (our provincial flower). For a couple of 100 years Mi'kmaq brought bouquets of Mayflowers downtown to sell. I recall a salesman on Barrington St in about 1980 with bunches of flowers in elegant waxed paper wrappers.
