I find all kinds of smells appealing; lavender, wax crayons, tarmac, freshly painted rooms, the sea, a pine forest, bread baking ... the list is endless. To define a favourite is an impossible task. I've never really thought about it. An interesting question.
I know what you mean! There are so many wonderful smells to choose from. My own list is endless too... vanilla, the smell after it rains, cinnamon, the beach, the list goes on. Beeswax candles are one of my favorite smells.
Great question with so many answers. I think bread baking and fresh coffee brewing are two of my favourites along with freshly cut grass (preferably without the sneezing I get with it)and chocolate melting. I also like the smell of early morning rainfall though I'm not sure if that would vary place to place, by me it seems to freshen the factory and road smells into something natural and fulfilling, but it could just be me
The smell of rain on the parched ground, The smell of flowers wafting in from the garden at dawn, The smell of fresh air on the mountain top, The smell of a BABY The smell of Christmas... has a distinct smell in my memory..and so on..
Great question. I have many smells I enjoy, not necessarily a single one, but for various reasons of nostalgia, or pleasure, they resonate with me:
flower fragrances, in particular lilac and honey suckle gasoline; musk, woods, cedar, a forest, apple pie, bread baking, chocolate chip cookies out of the oven, musk my skin when the sun soaks into it, coconut suntan lotion, the ocean, fresh cut grass, my late husband's cologne, baby lotion...
...vanilla - have a nice natural skin cream with the scent ...jasmine - natural oil; love it ...sweet frankincense and sage and other natural incense (not the sticks) - i burn lots of it - the natural resin burned on incense charcoal - especially in the winter
