If you were at Barclays Center when the Brooklyn Nets won one of their home games this past season, upon leaving you weren't just sniffing the sweet smell of success. Thanks to a company called ScentAir, the arena has its own signature fragrance getting pumped through the HVAC system in an effort to "enhance the consumer experience and build brand identities." And they aren't the only ones. Cowboys Stadium, the Atlanta Hawks' Philips Arena and the St. Louis Rams' Edward Jones Dome all use ScentAir as well. Fun fact: The Rams' arena apparently has a "cotton candy" fragrance.


In case you're wondering, the DNAinfo New York article claims that the scent has citrus notes while other people have compared it to everything from Axe body spray to a Calvin Klein store to simply "clean smelling."

If you've visited the Barclays Center already, what does it smell like to you? And no, second-hand garbage from the New Jersey Meadowlands area is not an answer.
