Once I waited too long between mixing up my pigmented gelatin (AKA "glop") and pouring my carbon tissues. The glop had started to get a little moldy. I did make some carbon prints with those tissues. Now, I have made some lousy prints before, but they were the the only ones I have made that truly stunk.
As long as they do not cause spontaneous hardening of the gelatin, I could add smelly stuff to my gelatin and have, for example, carbon prints of roses that actually smell like roses.
Many years ago a local printing company used one of my redwood images for a poster (sent out to their customers). They added a coating that smelled like ferns.

At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
