Cumaru is supposed to have a scent.

Unfortunately a lot of these South American hardwoods look very similar. I suspect they play a little fast and loose with naming them. In the batch of ipe I got there was one board noticeably different, I came to believe it was cumaru (which has a scent supposedly) but it could have been anything.
