Canada Bank Note Maple Syrup

May 28, 2013 by  

Canada Bank Note Maple Syrup, Canada’s new $100 bill has started a fresh controversy, with dozens of residents contacting the Bank of Canada to ask why the bill smells like maple syrup.

Toronto-based news agency The Canadian Press obtained a year’s worth of rather hilarious emails sent to the country’s central bank from concerned Canadians inquiring about the sweet smell in the bills that were introduced in 2011.

However, the Bank of Canada didn’t have the answer some may have wanted: No syrup smell has been added to the new bills, the outlet reported Sunday.

Still, many Canadians, like Vancouver-based perfume manufacturer Monique Sherrett, are convinced there’s a maple odor in the currency.

Sherrett told The Press she smelled maple syrup on a $100 bill after it was taken out of a friend’s back pocket.

“I do think heat has something to do with activating the smell,” Sherrett said. “My friend’s warm butt is likely the activator.”
