Aren't they just.... I specified the colour because for some reason I haven't yet come across any kind of peonies that have scent like the old, light pink (almost white) variety that is luckily quite widespread....

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

Has anyone else noticed that smells are often linked to tastes (as far as how much you like them?)

What's "biscoti"? Sorry, I'm probably being a simpleton here, but I've never heard of it.
I'm not sure if I spelled it right, but biscoti is an Italian cookie.

Oh, cool!

I was thinking more along the lines of tomato soup dumped over alfredo pasta and basil leaves

My imagination when it comes to new words is absolutely no good!

Not always...I adore the smell of coffee, but I hate the taste. I guess that's because the taste is completely different from the smell. So in most cases you might be right.

I don't think so. But there are white ones, dark pink ones and various shades of red. But in my experience (and I do try to smell peonies when I come across them, because I love the scent so much) only the light pink ones are scented.

I'm not sure about peonies, but I specified the yellow and pink roses, because they smell better than red, white, etc.

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

Coffee- nothing makes a morning better.
rain- after the first rain in the hills, you can smell the wet cedars and pavement and its very soothing.
caramel cooking- I worked in a chocolate factory so the smell sort of is a comfort thing.
my lizards- they have a very earthy smell to them, and its not a stink, just a musky smell. and when I handle them I can smell the change in what their bodies are putting off.
napalm in the morning- and THATS no joke. I (used) to have a recipe for it and a friend of mine and I (when we were very young and EXTREMELY stupid. as a cautionary note, do NOT try this at home it could get you killed or worse.) made a batch and burned off a field during the summer burnoffs, under total supervision of the Fire Dept. of course. the smell is oily and heady, like Victory in the morning. again I cannot stress enough not to try this at home I am a trained professional and a little wiser now, wise enough that I wont be doing it any time in the next 1000 years. but I do like the smell of napalm, in the morning.

Cool! Working at a chocolate factory seems like Heaven

I most DEFINITELY never knew that Lizards had a smell That's really cool, what kind of lizards do you have?

As for the peonies and roses, I have noticed that Pink Roses are particularly sweet-smelling, but I have never personally smelled a yellow one. And for the peonies, I would agree that the pink ones smell the most.

I love the smell of my cats when they come inside from lying under a bush on a hot day

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

I like the smell right after it rains the best
But i also like baking sugar cookies and apple pie oh and hot chocolate
And the smell of leaves... like if you're walking through a forest or something Weird, i know
And i absolutely love the smell of horses! Don't know why, most people are grossed out, but hey, i'm a horse person!

Okay. Here's my thing with horses. They're magnificent creatures, but I am allergic. So, as such, I can never get within five feet of one. It's kinda sad

I'm ok with the smell of horses if I'm not dead before smelling it.

That's disapointing
I used to be allergic to cats, but my allergy went away.

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

Coco / Coconut.

It┤s mostly my favorite smell and one of my favorite fruits.
I like everything that has taste of coconut.

Maybe that┤s because I┤m from a tropical country, so I grew up eating a lot of coconuts because near my house a guy used to sell coconuts, and we used to went there and eat coconuts almost everyday.

And I grew up going to the beach on weekends too, and for some weird reason our skin and our swinsuit always had a coconut smell after a day at the beach (It had something to do with sea water, the Sun Blockers, and oils)

Everytime I smell coconut those moment come back!!!!! So magical.
So, one of my favorite smells.
And I absolutely love coconut taste too

Besides coconut, I also LOVE vanilla and cinammon.
