*snicker-snarlfle!* I have a friend (yes still) who once threatened to
let me walk home if I ordered any Durian pearl drinks in future.
I countered that he has a convertible.
He said that is right, but the Durian smell was in his convertible for
like a week. And that was after he aired the car out for that entire period.
He compares the smell to "a combination of open sewer and stagnant water
with a wiff of decaying somethings."
I said that it's just an intense rich smell.
He just groaned, "Ya gotaa be frikkin' kiddin' me! That stuff should
qualify as a biological weapon!"

ROTFLMAO Oh that is just libelous conspiracy theorizing from the Fringe
BTW it is quite funny to google how many active Durian fruit
fansites/blogs there are!
