    The Perfect Work Mate?

    My son received his first can of Play Doh at a birthday party today.  I had forgotten how much I LOVE the smell and the feeling of the cool, plasticy, clay is irresistable.  I'm thinking I need a can to keep in my desk at work.  On a stressful day, what could be...

    *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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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...

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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...
