    Sassafras. Smells like Hall's Mentho-Lyptus cough drops. ==c

    I know sassafras blind folded. As soon as the chain touches the bark. The smell is sweet like.... rootbeer.

    I think it is Sassafras. It definitely isn't Black Cherry or Black Locust. Too bad we can't smell it over the internet. Maybe the iphone 6 will have an app for that.
