Did you guys think the Emancipation CDs smelled like a freshly opened stack of Pez candies?

Seriously, was that CD set perfumed??

Does anyone else know what I'm talking about?

No other CD I ever bought from 1985 to ~2010 smelled like Emancipation. Sort of a

cloying fruity scent.

It wasn't perfumed, but Like A Prayer actually was scented.

Just when U think U've got more than enough, that's when it all up and flies away.

I am not a newbie and I completely agree! Each time I open that case, the smell takes me back to that era... I always thought that it was the type of ink or type of paper, or the combination of the two, used for that print job.

Thank you! It really has baffled me since I bought the album in the 90s. It just smells so odd. Not a bad, unpleasant smell...just strange...

That case definitely had a smell to it and I never thought of it as Pez candies but I can kinda get the comparison.

U know, I remember getting the Like A Prayer cassette back in the day from a used record store not to long after it came out. I just thought that it was in someone's home who wore way too much perfume!! I never knew that it was supposed to smell like that! I never liked the smell of it...really funny!

Yes you're right, there was a hint of patchouli if I remember it well...
