I think that the early Mobil 1 and Exxon 2380 jet turbine oil also had a slightly "sweet" coconut-like smell to them.

Reminds me of G oil. I got two gallon in my garage that is about 5 years old and I am afraid to use it because it's probably bio degraded now.

Motul 300V has a similar odor. It's the esters that give off that smell.
