Gee, This Bathroom Smells Terrific!

Just got back from lunch at Eats and a quick pit stop to the Publix restroom because well, yeah.
As soon as I walked in the ladies' room I was hit with an overpowering familiar smell. No, not that one, you sickos.
The Publix restroom smelled exactly like the shampoo I used to use in high school, the apple-scented Salon Selectives that came in a pink bottle. It was a perfect olfactory match and I stopped in the middle of the room and inhaled deeply a few times, reliving my tenth grade glory days. Mid-sniff a woman about my age walked in the door, stoped in her tracks and stared at me. I gave her a weak smile and jumped into a stall.
What would have been the appropriate thing to say here?
"I just love the smell of fresh urine, don't you?"
"I think someone must have eaten asparagus for lunch."
"Don't mind me, I'm just practicing my lamaze. In...out...heeeee...heeeeee...hooooo"
"Gee, this bathroom smells terrific!"
