The overall background smell in Lisbon, besides the occasional overwhelming sulphurous pong of sewers, is grilled sardines.

However, rounding a corner, I was assaulted by the really strong smell of pee. Initially, I suspected the seedy looking men lounging around but then realised it was the blossom from these trees whose honeyed scent carried a faint ammoniac overtone.
