A more clinical aroma than the modern day hospital with hints of iodine.
Just ordered this particular smell in an aerosol. The company were friendly and helpful and delivery was quick (not cheap, but that is down to using a tracked courier for safety). I just gave the can a quick spray in my flat to see the effect it would have. Only about one second. The smell lingered in the whole flat for about 10 minutes! I am no expert, so I just have to say what I sensed from it. There is instant mustiness. A chemical smell; slightly cleaning fluid, slightly bleachy. A darkness to it; a sense of dirtiness and age. You couldn't ask for a better concoction, really. As our current show is based in an 1880s hospital, a quick spray of this as the audience enter is going to really hit the spot. Very impressed!

This is quite an effective odour of old fashioned hospitals. It incorporates methyl salicylate (wintergreen) which is the smell of surgical spirit, previously in common use. Plus possibly a tarry aspect reminiscent of Jeyes fluid.
