    Coffee, Bacon, Coconut Sunscreen

    Memories

    My favorite smells are old books and my dad's cologne.  Old books remind me of the really old books my parents used to read to my brother and me when we were little.  My dad's cologne reminds me of when he and Mom used to go out to dinner late at night and my grandma...

    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.

    Mmh :)

    I bought a small mouse stuffed animal yesterday and it lay on my desk until now. For some unknown reason, I just smelled it. It smells like a cinema we had in our town until about 10 years ago. It just reminds me of this cinema. The smell is somewhat like freshly washed...

    Making The Neighbours Hungry

    I love to bake and cook at home, indoors and outdoors and the smells are just fantastic. In my new kitchen, I had an exhaust fan installed (one that actually goes to the outside and not just a filter).  Now whenever I'm cooking anything indoors I'll have the fan...

    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...

    Moth Ball Fiend

    Moth balls and pear drops-that smell combined reminds me of being a six year old at my mum's after work,eating all the sweets and then coming across the moth balls,and Mum shouting in fright at me not to eat them. Nice smells are also my best friend's house for some reason ( I...

    When I was in a craft store,

    I noticed an artificial plant. But for some reason, it had a peculiar scent. It was really stinky. Especially since they were clumped together. The smell also covered large parts of the store too. But the stink drew me in. So I was smelling it like a weirdo, nonstop. Then I...

    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...

    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...
