The Smell of Truffles

I have heard many attempts at describing the smell of truffles but Georgina Laidlaw makes an unusual comparison in an article entitled “Foodies Savor the Smell of Rich People” which discusses the view of truffles in Australia as being “exclusive”:

In one memorable episode of the long-running but now discontinued ABC food program The Cook and The Chef, Maggie Beer sniffed ecstatically at an Australian black truffle before proffering it to co-host Simon Bryant. The chuckling Bryant told her it smelled like rich people.”
