Which Major Vegas Hotel's Soap Smells Like Salmon?

If you're like me - and who the fudge isn't a 43 year old retired rock n roll guitar hero with a belly and a table saw under the xmas tree - you steal everything that isn't bolted down from your hotel room. If you're like my wife, you pick a coupla extra of the stuff you really like/want/need/can sell on eBay from the housekeeping cart.
Being a Vegas toiletries collector beyond compare it can take some time to work your way through the stash. The backlog got so bad at one point that we had a Facebook contest to give away a box full of the stuff I snagged in Macau in 2007. The upside is you always smell differently and you always smell like Vegas, or Biloxi, or Atlantic City, or Macau.
Today was new soap day and boy was I surprised to find that the soap I was using... shaped in a curve much like Encore, smelled like fresh aromatic salmon with a hint of wild berries. That soap... the Qua Baths & Spa Cleansing Bar from Caesars Palace.
Unfortunately, they haven't invented smellavision plugin for the internet so you'll just have to trust me, the Qua Baths Cleansing Bar at Caesars Palace smells like salmon. The good news is that I like salmon. Baked, grilled, deep fried, smoked or finely sliced and served on rice with wasabi and soy sauce.
What gives it that salmon scent? Sodium palmitate and sodium palm kernelate are salts from palm and aid in cleansing, moisturizing and slight exfoliation, water is water, glycerin is for moisturizing, sodium chloride is salt, titanium dioxide is possibly a carcinogen that can be used to protect you from the sun and store electrical energy, tetrasodium edta keeps ions from dispersing their energy and softens water, aloe barbadensis leaf juice is alow, known to be good for healing and nourishing skin, tetrasodium etironate is also a water softener and prevents the soap from forming soap scum.
Funny. I don't see salmon listed on the ingredients. What gives?
