I don't remember the name Affixofix and I can't find a single reference to that name on the internet at all, which is very unusually, how confident are you that this is the correct name? I would love to find something that smelled close to the same as the glue paste in the blue tub just for the memories it would invoke!
    Yeah I remember that almond smelling glue and like the others here I can't remember what it was called either. It was white and came in a tub with a small plastic applicator, that bent as you scooped the glue out.

    Weirdly I did a review of some pipe tobacco a few days ago and likened the smell of that blend to that paste we used back in the mid 60's.

    If I remember rightly that glue was useless and didn't stick anything !

    After seeing this thread I found some similar comments from mainland Europe about a white paste craft glue that smells of almond called COCCOINA 603 that was sold in a small metal tin with a brush. It's still sold in a few places. Amazon has it but only in a pack of ten. Curiosity got the better of me and I ordered a single tine from etsy (I live in the US now) for $10.

    The smell is almost identical to the blue tub/white lid paste I remember from my childhood. I think if I had first smelled it blindfolded without knowing that it was not the blue tub, I would have said it was exactly the smell but I am guessing it is not quite the same. It is close enough that I can close my eyes, take a whiff and be transported back to 1960's Manchester.
