    Reminds Me Of Childhood

    I don't think we even played much with play doh as children, but we must have done, because the smell of it makes me quite happy, and makes me think of where I used to live as a child. I'm not addicted to the smell, but it is quite nice, haha.

    OMG I Remember That!!

    As soon as I saw this group I could smell it in my mind!  I used to crack the can open and inhale...  But it didn't smell very good when it dried out.

    It's Bizarre, and Yet Comforting.

    the smell is somehow warm, but not as soft and colourful as play doh itself actually is. it has a slightly chalky smell to it, with a tint of something fishy. i visualize it as little clouds of colour that linger on your hands after you're done playing. and no, i'm not...

    Once....

    When I was little, I once decided that, if it smelt nice, it'd taste nice too, wouldn't it?? So I tried some, and it didn't taste as nice as I thought it would be. Infact, I remember being ill for a day afterwards.

    Children

    The smell of play-dough always reminds me of little kids. I used to always be making fresh play-dough for the play-school when I was training there..The smell always takes me back to that year and reminds me of all the kids that were there and the funny things they would tell me...

    I Thought I Knew..

    I thought I knew, I thought I remembered, what Play Doh smelled like. I hadn't smelled it in years. I remember it being one of my favorite things about Play-Doh, the smell.  Recently, my niece was playing with some and I jumped at the chance to join her.  She had...

    And Also the Taste of It.

    What can I say. I like salt. The smell, the taste, the everything. And the texture of play-dough... it's fantastic. I was always one of those children who ended up with it ground into her clothes, into the carpet, etc. One cannot have had a happy childhood without play-dough.

    I'm an extremely olfactory oriented person. Always have been. Used to smell everything I picked up! So, I tend to know how most things smell! or should smell! Love play doh!

    *sniff Sniff*

    Having two kids its easy to find an excuse to play with Play Doh. I think it has somewhat of a salty smell to it too. I also love the smell of a brand new carton of crayola crayons.

    Sniff Sniff

    My mom is a teacher and has tiny things of play-dough for her kids.  I took one and keep it just to smell every now and then.  Haven't touched the dough, just take off the cap and sniff sniff.  I love it.

    Smells Like Fun!

    There was only a few times my sister and I were given play-doh, as a gift. I loved the smell of it and I still remember it! And when my nephews stopped by with some, I would play along with them, just so I can smell it! XD To me, it smells like fun! It brings up all the happy...

    Play Doh - the Fragrance

    Oh yeah, I found it hard to believe, but it's true! There is a Play Doh perfume! I haven't seen it in stores but I've read about it several times. I do understand why people like the smell, I guess it's something from our childhoods that's comforting :)
