    It Is Wonderful

    The best smell ... no not the full diapers. The aroma of baby powder and lotion that so conjures up memories happy and peaceful. Then frying onions, lavender, chocolate, fresh baked bread, french vanilla, cinnamon,  flowers, fresh cut grass, and the outdoors after a spring...

    Elm City Memories

    Scents, at times, have a remarkable ability to bring vivid memories back to life.  Most times this happens by chance.  A whiff on the breeze of a very particular brand of paint thinner may carry one instantly to a moment in early childhood watching Dad paint the garage...

    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.
