    Freshcut Wood

    I love the smell of firewood on a cool night... when you need a blanket even to sit by it ... curled up with a hot cup of coffee and just taking in the scent of the wood burning ... watching the flames dance and the smoke roll of the top of it ... and then to wake up and smell...

    Has to be my favorite smell,

    it reminds me of my childhood when I would go camping all the time with my family. Now I try to have a fire when possible in my backyard. The smell combined with watching the flames dance is enough to put me to sleep. I like that the next day the jacket that you wore still...

    Feeding the Flame

    When I smell a fire it brings back some great memories from my high school days. That is why I love it so much. It brings back memories of a night I met the first person I fell the hardest for.

    I Always Thought I Was Weird...

    No one I've ever met likes the smell of fire. I especially like the smell of a bonfire, burnt sugar (i.e. burnt marshmellows), and car exhaust. That's right, gasoline. It's really bad to breathe in, I know, but for some reason I love it.

    Fire On The Beach...

    I really do love the smell of a fire, especially a camp fire on the beach after a really hot day in the sun and the sea. In the summer, spending the day and then the evening on the beach, its just fantastic. ...Going to find kindling and wood to burn amongst the sand dunes and...
