    What smell brings about your greatest memory?

    Thanks to HappyHer for inspiring this question. Her hub made me think about smells and how they can affect people.

    The smell of rain after a hot summer day, the smell of coffee while yet in bed, the smell of fresh bread while it is baked.

    Great answer sofs.. Cigars do it for me. They remind me of my grandfather. He was probably the greatest man I will ever meet and wish he could have been a part of my life longer.

    sounds funny but the smell of glue, like elmers glue reminds me of bible school from when I was a child. The smell of honeysuckles remind me of the farm we lived on when I was a kid and the smell of peaches remind of the old peach tree we had in the side yard, that always scared me because it had a big knot in the trunk that looked like a face.

    Freshly cut cherry laurals in the summertime, bakes apples in the fall, cinnamon tea in winter and gardenias in the spring. These smells have the power to transport me to a memorable experience and simpler time.

    The smell of freshly sharpened pencils and erasers, takes me all the way back to kindergarten smile
