Second hand fenugreek?

I wonder if the lactating women of New York noticed a boost in their milk supplies in October 2005 with the fenugreek (herb that boosts milk supply) wafting through the air....
NEW YORK (Reuters) – A mysterious, maple syrup-like odour that has periodically wafted over New York City since October 2005 has been linked to New Jersey fragrance processing plants, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Thursday.
Fragrance and food additive factories in nearby New Jersey where fenugreek seeds are processed are the "probable source" of the odour, Bloomberg told a news conference at City Hall.
