I Love The Smell Of Napalm In The Morning

I wonder if Kilgore would still think Napalm smells like victory after the Vietnam War? 馃 What does napalm smell like anyway? 馃槙

it smells like gasoline wich is it's primary ingredient along aluminum salts thickening agents of napthenic and palmitic acid..

Jellied gasoline, when it splashes on you, it melts and spreads very quickly, trying to wipe it off just spreads it around even more... very nasty.

Gasoline with a hint of styric acid, AKA Styrofoam.

Like gas mostly, but highly effective and very useful.

It's a mix of naptha and palm oil hence the name. The burning smell is distinctive and disgusting

Smells like gasoline with a soapy and slight mothball overtone to it.
