Coffee, Bacon, Coconut Sunscreen
the ocean on a windy summer night, baked treats in the oven, the smell of turkey and dressing cooking on the morning of Thanksgiving, biscuits baking (i must be hungry). Fresh cut christmas tree, jasmine and honeysuckle in the summer, puppy breath, fresh sheets and towels from the dryer. Pinon trees in Santa Fe, pinon wood fires, coffee roasters, bookstores with a coffee bar, fresh lavender, lavender oil, lavender soap. Dr. Bronners peppermint soap, La Mer moisturizer, Aveda products. The first cold snap of winter - when everyone has fires in their fireplaces and you can smell it down the street. Barbecue charcoal smells from backyards. My grandmother's house. My mother's house. My husband's skin. The smell of a clean newborn and then the smell of spit up on the newborn. haha Brand new leather interior in a new car. Bakeries. Diptyque Lavender candles. Cinnamon/apple cider warming on the stove. Watermelon, cantelope, cocounut, bananas - in the summer. Ginger (my dog). Forests with aspens and pines, up in the mountains, with icy cold water running thru. Santa Fe, Taos, Durango in the evenings, in the fall - the desert smells. I could write a novel on my favorite smells.
