"Male kākāpō emit a loud booming sound to attract females and smell “like the inside of a clarinet case, musty and kind of like resin and wood,” said Laura Keown, spokesperson for the competition."

As a speaker of French, I would have feared something else with a name like that ... Not in my clarinet case please !

That's pretty funny. However, not all clarinet cases smell alike.

My Yamaha double case still smells like emulsion paint - same as my Yamaha Custom sax cases.

Must be the glue Yamaha use.
