The smell of burnt flashbulbs in a hand soap

When I was in sixth grade I had a Kodak Brownie Fiesta camera. In addition to the joy of taking photographs with the camera, I got a special kick out of the smell of used flashbulbs. A sort of spicy, burnt smell that I really enjoyed.

Fast forward to recent times when we picked up some Bath & Body Works Deep Cleansing Hand Soap scented with Kitchen Herb.

Damn if the scent of this hand soap wasn't identical to the smell of spent flash bulbs from my Brownie Fiesta camera! How does this happen?
