Smells like Tokyo

Today, when I got in a cab, I detected an unusual aroma emanating from the front of the car. I soon noticed a pink air freshener with the words, "Tokyo 828" on it. Apparently, the driver has never heard of pine or lemon-scented fresheners in the shape of an evergreen tree. According to the cabbie, the so-called Tokyo-scented can of fragrance is supposed to smell like Japanese cherry blossoms in Spring. If you ask me, it reeks of a geisha girl's cheap perfume and some raw fish.
