Smells that you like
« on: April 10, 2019, 02:25:31 AM »
Basically anything ordinary to the spectrum of "a bit odd". Stuff like fresh baked cookies to the smell of your pet animal or something.

On the subject of weird scents that I like... gasoline and burning pipe tobacco.

As far as more relatable ones go? Lots of food ones; like grilled meat (sausage, beef, chicken, etc) or fish. Another would be Cinnamon and lavender... but in the form of incense as opposed to actual cinnamon or lavender.

Hm. There's a lot.

Cigar smoke. Coffee. Lemon/Lime. Vanilla. Sandalwood. Caramel. Cinnamon. Leather. The way my husband smells. Melons in general. The grass after the rain. Roses. Freshly washed laundry. Coconut. Oregano. Basil. Patchouli. Anise.

I love the smell of freshly cut grass right after it has rained.

I love the scent of ozone (O3) before a rain storm and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) during a lightning strike. They both emanate that crisp, pungent aroma that stimulates my olfactory senses. I also enjoy the smell of watermelons, donuts, old books, cedar wood, Colts (Rum & Wine), and the interior of new cars.

Bread!

I always smell it before I eat it, a weird habit of mine I guess.

Incense used to rub me the wrong way but I kind of like it now.

 I had a chamomile and ylang ylang lotion that I loved to bits. I am a sucker for magnolia and jasmine fragrances. I like sandlewood too.

Petrichor. Diesel. Any and all citrusy or acidic odors. Oddly fond of the scent of vinegar, too.

The strangely pristine papery aroma of a new car or book.

The extremely light yet pervasive scent of honeysuckle flowers.

Coffee. Rain. Pinesol and Bleach (they smell like "Clean" to me... and also have to be in moderation).  Those are my favorites, anyway.

Oh oh, I have one! Flour! Plain flour. It reminds me of cooking or baking with my mother, and in general when I am happy I like to cook or bake. So it is home and happiness in scent form.

I also like fresh lilac or honeysuckle. 

And the smell of old books. Paper, Post-It notes in particular. Coffee beans, before they are ground. The smell of Scrubbing Bubbles (Found out the hard way this product should be used with a window open though.) Ozone.

I especially like catching just a hint of a nice cologne or scent of a man in passing. It's not so much a specific cologne/scent but the fact that it was pleasant and just a faint tease of it, leaving you wanting more.

I remember when I was really little, the local Toys 'R Us entryway had this really pleasing scent, like paint that hadn't dried all the way, and I loved it but I'd only get one whiff before entering the store proper.

Also the smell of Fruity Pebbles. Curiously I dislike Trix and Froot Loops despite them being kind of all the same thing just in different geometric shapes.

In no particular order. The smell in the air after a downpour. (Especially the first downpour of the spring.) Fresh apples. Roasting garlic. Freshly parmesan cheese. That "new car" smell. The air at the moment of sunrise on a camping trip miles from anywhere. Frying spam. The air when sailing in a storm. Tabasco sauce. Books, especially old ones. Fruit candies. Clean sheets on a well-made bed. The crisp smell of the air after a fresh snow. The smell of my grandparents' house when we'd go there for Christmas.
Lots of air smells in there.
