I am a complete apple snob. I really, truly dislike fake apple smell; also, I'm really sensitive to artificial scent.
This Macintosh Apple is the real deal! It smells as if you walked into an apple mart (if you don't remember, or haven't ever been in an apple mart--they are a vanishing species, sadly!--, it's the orchard market, pretty much just a big room in a barn, where all the apples are in wooden bins for you to buy). It really, truly, smells like real, fresh apples. I admit I was completely skeptical when I bought this, but I was blown away by how amazing it is. So, so happy!
