    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.

    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.

    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. :-)

    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...

    Grandma

    When I was little, I shared a bedroom with my grandparents. We had a little altar on our dresser, and before we went to sleep, my grandma would light candles and pray. I loved the "burning" smell that wafted around the room whenever she lit a match and blew out the...
