... what smell would you suggest for a fragranced stamp from your country?  A rose for the UK?  Cinammon for the USofA?

Cabbage for Poland?
 
Bigos, a savoury stew of meat and cabbage, is considered to be the national dish of Poland.
 
This thought came to mind, being a collector of Discworld cinderellas, because cabbages are of course a particularly important vegetable from a flatelic perspective. They have provided illustrative inspiration for a number of stamps. And a perfumed-ish aroma for the famous " http://www.discworldstampcatalogue.co.uk/shs0011.html - Skunk Stamp ".

Welsh regionals should alternate between the scent of leeks, coal dust and lanolin

I saw that the post of the Faroe Islands is going to issue fish skin stamps! I don't know if they will smell. But if they do, he smell would be quite suitable for the country I think.

I suspect that fish skins get used in lots of everyday products we and we are not even aware of it - cosmetics, foods etc.

A fun idea for their stamps though.  I keep reading that stamp production is in decline since the advent of email but issues like these suggest otherwise.

If any collectors of Faroe Island stamps are also vegans, will it mean they will have gaps in their collections?

Now that's a diagram I'd like to see...

100% population; % of population are stamp collectors; % of stamp collectors collect Faroe Island stamps; % of Faroe Island collecting stamp collectors who are vegan; % of completist vegan Faroe Island collecting stamp collectors staring wistfully at their stock book.
