    Lovely question.

    I love the smell of Night Scented Stock- it reminds me of my childhood- or jasmine flowers.

    The smell of warm, melted chocolate for obvious reasons smile  I also love the smell of a bakery.  It reminds me of when I was a kid, walking to my Gran's house.  There was a small bakery that I walked passed on a small road and the sweet smell of dough would let me know I was nearly there.  Sadly it's gone now but I can still remember that smell like I remember my own name.  Those were the days.

    Definitely the smell you get when you walk by Cinnabon.  The sweet smell of cinnamon and sugar along with baked bread is unlike any other.  Hard to resist.

      I'm with you. I like general the smell of petrol. I've loved it as a child. Later, I realized that it might be unhealthy to breathe in gasoline. :-|

    In tangible, bottled scents, anything coconut.

    In the real world, I have two. One is that damp soil smell that comes right before a rain. The other is the minty, icy smell on the air before snow. So, the smells of weather!

    Satya Fresh Rose Incense! smile I think it just smells spectacular burning. I think this is a scent everyone should try out in their homes once! Well, I also think the Rose Water toner also smells this good. I don't think roses themselves actually smell as good as the rose scent in these products. I don't know why. Probably because I have an allergic reaction from sniffing a real rose!

    If this means a smell for anything? I'm a woman so I'd have to say my favorite perfume 'Chanel No 5' I like it and Love it but for this reason this is because it's way out of my price range.

    Bit of an odd one - The smell of burning coal.

    When I was a kid we used to frequent a park with small steam trains which you could ride on, so that's where it came from smile

    I love the smell of cookies baking in the oven on a cold winter's day whether it is  chocolate chip or sugar cookies. I like it because it is usually a family affair and whether I get to be froster or cookie cutter this year is anyone's guess. smile

    A fresh honeysuckle flower smells fantastic.  It is seductively sweet, without any harsh overtones like you find in perfumes.  I prefer its smell over that of roses.  It reminds me of the sweet smells of Texas summers.

    I love the smell of lilacs and cherry blossoms. It says to me that the cold, cruel winter is finally over and I can look forward to months of peaceful warmth.

    I also like that almost dusty smell the air gets when it just begins to rain...it's almost as if the world is being washed clean again. It's a comforting feeling, especially if it's been dry for too long.
