    Scent of the Past

    I worked several years at a tourism site tucked in the mountains near a National Park. It felt remote but was easily accessible. I came to understand the beauty of my strength and explored my physical boundaries while I was there. It is one of the fondest places in my memory. All...

    3 Things

    Tire stores have a distinct smell that I've always loved, since I was just a small brat. Also love the smell of a coffee shop/expresso stand.  Third would be a bakery.

    The Smell Of Night

    I love lots of smells but one which is really amazing is the smell of night air standing in the door of my house after dark. Rain, tarmac, damp leaves, vegetation, car exhaust; all these smells combine to make that outside smell, but it's the contrast to the warm cosy house...
