"The lobby smells horrific," said broker Robin Schneiderman. "It plays with your mind a little bit." Rosalind Rodburg even said the smell prevented her from selling her $1.8 million apartment in the building! But hey—one of Le Cirque's owners tells us the truffle aroma is "reminiscent of certain aromas created during romance." So maybe she should just try advertising in the back of the Village Voice?
