Nope! I love the odor too.
But then I also love the odor of strong solvants. So whenever I smell it, I think "ohh yeah" and then the other part of my brain kicks in and says "get out of here, its bad for you", so I leave...

In all honesty, I have been known to take a whiff of my gas cap while filling up before.

Yes you are odd. I hate the smell of CLP, Hoppes and Cosmoline...

I LOVE the smell of burnt gunpowder though.

Me too. It completes the experience of going to the shooting range.

Re: Burnt powder
+1 especially Fedral shotshell powder, it's got a distinctive smell that goes back to my childhood.

Yeah, I love all those smells, horse manure as well. One bad thing, I tried out "Gunscrubber" (feeling lazy), I don't think it did much and when I sprayed it into the bore it came back and hit me in the face/mouth/eyes. I don't like that smell anymore....

I am not a fan of CLP's smell, but Eezox and Cosmo are fine. I love Hoppes

Sometimes, the smell of CLP, along with certain bath soaps gives me a feeling of deja vu. For a second or two, I get the same sick feeling of sheer terror that I felt my first week in Marine Corps bootcamp.

I love the smell of burned alky and nitromethane. I also like burned diesel fuel, and that peculiar machine shop smell of burned cutting oil and steel.

I'd have to say the sweetist smelling cleaner has gotta be hoppes #9. Love that smell:D Anyone agree?

Personally I think they all smell good... they smell like a clean bore :)! My favorite scent (if you could call it that) is definitely breakfree though!

Man, chicks dig the smell of Hoppe's #9. When I don't have time to run home after shooting I just dab a little Hoppe's #9 in certain strategic and tactical theaters and I'm good to go.

You're probably just fine but then some people, "...love the smell of napalm in the morning". :D

I don't know what Breakfree CLP smells like, and haven't got any idea what Eezox is, but....

I love the smell of most rifle cleaners (not Sweet's 7.62 solvent, good GOD that's a strong ammonia smell!!!) and care products. My wife thinks I'm nuts and that they "stink." I think they smell great (maybe it's the fumes?). Hoppes #9 is the best-smelling, I think. I've loved the smell since I was a kid, and wish they'd market a cologne version.

I love the smell of a freshly-opened tin of 7.62x54R, too. :D Smells like... cheap old ammo. :p

My wife thinks Hoppes #9 is a cologne.

She literally gives me the stink eye if she smells it because I dont wear any purfumy stuff.

As long as you're not breaking into anyones house to sniff theirs,and if you do dont fall asleep on their bed.

The smell of Unique burning on a cool morning during dove season. And of course Hoppe's #9.

I use MPro7 also, but I have to alternate with Hoppe's. The gun just doesn't feel clean if it doesn't smell like Hoppe's.

I once almost started an online petition to make Hoppes 9 into a cologne but UGH EFFORT.
