My brain hurts!

Identify this smell filter: I just used some McCormick brand vanilla extract and it smells exactly like kindergarten. My husband agreed. Our only guess is that it smells like the paste we used to use with the little stick shown here with Ralph Wiggum

The extract straight out of the bottle doesn't smell like vanilla - I suppose it's too concentrated. I can't find any paste online - does anyone sell it anymore? This is driving me crazy. Is there anywhere to buy paste for comparison? Or alternatively, is there anyone out there who thinks, "You're right! Vanilla extract straight out of the bottle smells exactly like rubber cement!" (Or something.) It's not a playdoh smell - that smells better, and I've had a lot of playdoh since kindergarten. This is a smell from much further back in my brain...
