Have any of you guys tried Le Nez Du Vin? In essence, it's a small, expensive box of nasty smells (obviously an ideal gift for a loved one or Mother). What you get in the box is twelve little bottles, each identified in a booklet and when you take off the lids, you smell appalling smells such as rotten egg, sulphur, cauliflower, etc., which are supposed to indicate if the wine is oxidised and so on.
My main criticism of this malodorous set is that wines don't always smell exactly the same if something has gone wrong - otherwise I highly recommend and it's great to get out at dinner parties. You might want to do a bit of decanting and sniffing first though - just in case!
