Have you considered snorting exhaust fumes?

A German man has canned the noxious-smelling exhaust fumes of East Germany’s cult Trabant car and is doing a brisk trade selling the scent to those nostalgic for the former Communist state.

“The smell is something very special and scarce nowadays,” said Thorsten Jahn, whose cans of “Trabi” exhaust sell online for 3.98 euros ($4.81).
