Durian: King of Fruits, Scourge of Air Fresheners

Though comical, the No Durian signs of South-East Asia are not to be ignored.

This spiky “King of Fruits” has a smell not unlike decomposing garbage. It’s a sweet rot that cannot be thwarted with household air freshener alone.

That’s why it’s eaten outside.

And why it’s banned from public transport and hotels.

Once that smell gets in, there’s no getting it out.
