Some of my favorite smells are:
Fresh brewed cinnamon coffee with Hazlenut creamer. I add more cinnamon on occasion. I use that mix at work and it is kinda' an aroma therapy for me. It helps maintaining a sense of calmness with the day to day normal stresses.
Oddly, gasoline is one. I think that goes back to the hey-day time period of Hot Rods, NHRA Racing as a participant, within its complex of manufacturing entrepreneurs, and today a spectator, and finally it just revs me up.
I like the smell of a hot-out-the-oven pizza with a secret tomato sauce. It can be vegetarian, or meat lovers, or Hawaiian, or shrimp, or just a great sweet New York Style cheese pizza too.
I like the smell of a baby in her/him mom's/dad's arms just after a bath. The twinkle in the eyes and cute smile help too.
I like the smell of morning. I sleep in a chair next to a window usually. My bed is below a bunch of power wires so the theory is EMF signals disturb my sleep. I dun'no. However, I sleep with the window open. I go to work at noon. So, I let the smell of dawn awaken me naturally. Yup, morning smells wonderful . . .
My favourites are:
1. A freshly painted fence.
2. Fresh, clean air.
3. Freshly grilled beefburgers
4. Hugo Boss Aftershave
5. New car smell.
6. Radox shower gel.
The smell of my grandchildren fresh from the bath - and the smell of my husband fresh from work...
Mmm...let's see, mine are (in no particular order):
- Old books
Now, I wonder what all of these preferences say about us as people.
- freshly cut grass
- new tarmac on a road
- bacon roll
- coffee brewing
- new baby smell
Down Here in the pine forests out back of backwards.....
It's gotta be....
A hot Moose and Bourbon Pie
Freshly BBQed Skunk
That pair of trainers that followed me home
The fresh air that rushes into the room when someone leaves
& those trainers that followed me home and aren't allowed inside, or near friends.... well ya know... they are not too smooth in the smell department!!
OOOOh, bacon, I totally forgot bacon! Add that to my list too.
and cigarettes (i am not a smoker but i love the smell)
night blooming jasmine
home made cinnamon buns baking in the oven
freshly cut grass
freshly brewed coffee
Clinique happy - it instantly makes me happy
Ooh night blooming jasmine!
I took a cutting home from Spain in the spring, and it is now 4 feet high and has just finished flowering - indoors because it is a bit too cold for it outside here, except in summer.
-Washer/Dryer exhaust vent (not kidding, that steamy clean smell is amazing)
-The smell of salt water waves crashing on the beach
-That smell right after it rains
Interesting....my list is long but to name a few, I love:
1. Grapefruit and Bergamot
2. Baby's breath (the real thing)
3. Fresh cotton or linen scent
4. That fresh grassy scent after the rain
5. Fresh brewing coffee
Off the top of my head...
- warm cinnamon rolls
-Gloria Jean's butter toffee k cups (coffee that my co-worker makes in a Keurig)
-that smell right before it rains
-inside of a Starbuck's
Funny ...two of mine involve coffee although I hate the taste of it and don't drink it.
Meat on the grill -- can be burgers, dogs, steak -- just that waft of a neighbor's fired up charcoal instantly says "summer" to me.
Candles -- pumpkin spice, vanilla, apple cinammon
Fresh cracked can of beer -- preferably Bud (don't drink it, just brings back great memories).
Snow in pine trees (specifically, the crisp cold air breathed from a chair lift)
Norell -- reminds me of my Grammy coming for Christmas
Muguet des Bois -- lily of the valley perfume by Coty (hard to find now)
Love's Musky Jasmine Flower (purple bottle same shape as "Baby Soft" -- impossible to find now)
Anything pumpkin spice or apple cinnamon
Fresh cut grass
Freshly bathed babies
Coconut Lime Verbena anything from Bath & Body Works
Freshly extinguished candles
Murphy's Oil Soap
(In no particular order, of course)
Some really good additions on your list.
Baking brownies or cookies -- yum!
I love Murphys Oil Soap and also love the smell of PineSol!
I love herbs, lavender, rosemary, thyme, mint, lemon grass etc. They all small so earthy and natural but are unique in the most pleasant of ways.
Even though I do not drink coffee, and never have, I love the smell of a newly opened container of ground coffee.
Coffee. Is there any thing else that should even be on the list? Just coffee.
lavender vanilla lotion
smell after a rain
smell of lavender Fabreze room spray
I love anything lavender I guess
Thanks Habee. This was relaxing
2. lilac flowers
5. various evergreens
The list could go on! Scents are one of the strongest memory recallers, and this is why yuzu is on my list. It is one of the signature scents of a mountain spa in Santa Fe, where I used to live. I loved it there!
A camp fire
AND gasoline. Yes, I went there. And no I don't huff the stuff for effect. I just really love the occasional whiff at the gas station.
Gasoline/petrol/diesel - all does it for me too! lol I was destined to become a taxi driver, and get to fill up with diesel every night.
No-one else just adore the smell of tarmac? Maybe there is another name for it in the States? That black stuff they re-surface roads with? Mix of tar and stone chips?
And I love the smell of the sea. That salty tang that comes in with the breeze as you stand on the shore with the wind in your hair. I missed that in Spain, even though the sea was never more that 5 miles or so away (as the crow flies).
And talking of Spain, walking through the 'campo' when the almond trees are in flower is Heavenly.
Or just walking by bars and smelling that heady mix of coffee and beer.
Oh I get the tarmac thing, Izzy. Over the summer we had our street re-tarred (is that a word?) and I was the only one in the neighborhood who was happy. Everyone else had their windows seal up tightly... not me.
We must have similar "smell buds" because I also love the smell of the sea. Just left the Oregon coast and was loving how my clothes still smell.
sauteed garlic and onions
olive oil and herbs for dipping bread
chicken grilling outside
@Izzy, I'm not feeling the love for the smell of tarmac.. I do love the smell of the salty sea air, it's like therapy for me. Maybe why I live in Florida.
I also love the smell of a hot summer night in Florida with a slight breeze.
I also like the smell of Murphys Oil Soap. It's what I use to clean my floors, furniture and counters.
How can I forget orange blossoms.
Hope you folks in Florida have the hatches well battened in view of the impending storm.
Full moon tomorrow = highest tides in the next week.
That plus Sandy looks a bit dangerous. Stay safe!
Even if you don't like the smell of tarmac!
Thanks Izzy, the storms often come our way, but this one is heading towards DC, New Jersey, the Northeast. I think the east coast of Florida may have felt some effects, but we didn't over here on the Gulf coast. My thoughts are also with the people who may be affected. We went through one a few months ago, and it was not fun. My street and yard turned into a lake.
I hope those in mandatory evacuation zones take the necessary precautions and leave. Situations can get very serious quickly.
I saw on the news something about Venice being flooded?
They showed pavement cafes with people sitting in about 6 inches of water. Well, one person. Guess the rest made a fast exit.
1. My Toddler Grandson fresh out of the bath still all snuggly wrapped up in a towel, scuirming to get loose and run naked through the house.

I love the smell of a kindergarden classroom...that gluey, pasty, papery smell. It brings me way back.
Onions. Raw onions. Seriously, just cut the onion in half and hand it to me.
Other than that...I don't know, various women's shampoos?
2. Freshly baked bread
4. The fresh Winter air
