Is there a plant/tree that smells like male sperm?

I live in Harford County, Maryland and driving along back roads I constantly get wiffs of this smell and it bugged me forever. I finally was driving with someone and they commented that it smells like semen and, well, they were right. It is just driving my crazy to try and figure out what the heck this smell is coming from! Only mature answers please, I just want to know if anyone knows if this is a certain plant or tree.

    Bradford Pears, when in bloom, smell like semen here in Rome, Georgia.

    Source(s): Have put up with that smell for 17 years now. Makes me wish I had planted real pears or real anything.

    I don't know the answer to this question but I can definitely support you and verify that I too have smelled this plant life before. I live in Western MA and smell it all the time in the summer. Good luck with that answer...let me know if you find out.

  • It's definitely acacia. These trees are planted or grown in abundance in Iran. Those who've not smelled semen will like the smell.

    The smell of the blooming acacia trees along the highway in the Santa Cruz mountains was like that. At least, I was told it was the acacias -- I suppose it could have been something else. I don't know if you have acacias where you live ... they have big yellow fluffy blossoms and feathery foliage.

    im from PA and wonder the same thing EVERY day! i don't know for sure. i think its the humidity. on nice warm, non humid days with no chance of rain its never there. right before and right after it rains the smell is more noticible.

    If you do a google search for tree semen smell you get a lot of listings for the Bradford pear that Stephen C mentions...so I would say he is correct.
