Song of India Multi-Purpose Aroma Oil

Here's some oil I saw for sale at a University of Pennsylvania museum gift shop a couple months ago.

It "smells just like temples in India." Huh? What is that smell? You've got your incense. You've got your flowers, especially jasmine. And maybe some other less pleasant smells. But that all doesn't really all add up to one particular combination you could bottle. The later claim that "you will find yourself in a fragrant garden chasing the flowers" is more promising, but even more unlikely.

The gift shop wanted $10.50 (430 rupees) for the not-so-big bottles of oil, so I'll never know if using this oil is truly like H E A V E N !!!
