the scent of... tomato?

I was wandering aimlessly in Greenwich Village in NYC, and stumbled into the best little stationery shop - Greenwich Letterpress. Scads of cool cards, fun gifts, custom invitations... you name it, they have it. I was particularly drawn to the scent coming from a Kobo candle scented with tomato vine, clover and ivy. A lot of candles smell fake and icky to me, but this was refreshingly different, and Kobo are made with soy wax and lead-free wicks. If you're in Austin you can pick one up at Wildflower Organics. I wonder what the Manchurian Dragon Fruit scent smells like?
