So, what IS that distinctive bubblegum-like smell and flavor? What is it made of, and what is it supposed to be?

It's a simplified artificial strawberry flavor/scent plus a simplified artificial banana flavor/scent. It makes me wonder if it would be possible to do something with actual strawberries and bananas to play off of that, but I suspect not. Real strawberries and real bananas are far to complicated -- and I think that the artificial banana flavorings are based off of the might-as-well-be-extinct Gros Michele banana, rather than the modern Cavendish, so, unless I got my hands on enough Gros Micheles to experiment with, I'm never going to find out.

You could start with isoamyl acetate for the banana. I don't know what to suggest for the strawberry, though.

Huh! I have learned something today. I never thought of it as having a banana note, I usually don't like artificial banana.

We have "berry" flavored toddler toothpaste and it basically smells like bubble gum.
