    Burn Baby Burn

    I love the smell.... not sure what they put on those things but I could burn a whole pack one by one. I always grab books of them when we are out and about. With all the no smoking rules now though not to many restaurants give them out anymore.

    Smoke

    I love the smell of smoke that comes from matches. It permeates everything, your clothes, your hair, I swear my skin even smells like it afterwards. It just such a thoughtful, intense smell to me. My best friend's parents have a match collection, so there are vases full of...

    People Judge Me For It .

    I love the smell of matches. I have a fascination for the whole process. Removing it from the box or book... drawing it along the scratch pad... the sound....the spark.....the flame.... and that moment when it almost reaches your fingertips just before you extinguish the flame...

    Sulfur?

    Is that what it is? I don't know but it smells wonderful.  I love the smell of matches, and I love watching them burn.  It's a release.

    Odd? Maybe...but I Don't Care!

    Love the sulfur smell of a freshly lit match! :-) I sometimes even sit in my bedroom, with the door and window closed,and light several...one after another. Then just sit back,and enjoy the aroma. :-)

    Oh, Me Too!

    You blow it out, and that white smoke curls up and rises to your nose...so nice.  Oh, and I like the smell of candles just after you blow them out.  They've got that smoky, burned fragrance, too.
