Published November 25, 2007 01:13 am - For those Britons who drink in pubs but miss the atmosphere as it was before smoking bans (for example, who may be disoriented by “new” smells that are no longer masked by cigarette smoke), the company Dale Air has introduced, in aerosol cans, a fragrance that it says mimics the musty, ashtray-based scent so familiar to veteran pub-goers.

— For those Britons who drink in pubs but miss the atmosphere as it was before smoking bans (for example, who may be disoriented by “new” smells that are no longer masked by cigarette smoke), the company Dale Air has introduced, in aerosol cans, a fragrance that it says mimics the musty, ashtray-based scent so familiar to veteran pub-goers.

— A price war broke out in November among chain stores in Britain, with Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda vying for the cheap-drunk customers, and at press time, Asda was leading by offering a low-end lager in multipacks for the equivalent of 46 cents a pint, which is less than colas or bottled water.
