Clean wet towels, when they're coming out of the washing machine...it's random, but that is the best smell in the world.

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

I love the smell of laundry, like the just-got-washed-with-amazing-smelling-fabric-softener-smell. It reminds me of a comfy home and I just want to bury my face in newly washed clothes.

I love the smell of something baking, especially chocolate chip cookies or the smell of a sweet type of cake-like bread baking.

And I love the smell of beach. I like the saltiness of the sea, but combined with a musty, but somewhat, fresh atmosphere.

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

Oh, my, I hardly know where to start :

Lilacs
Honeysuckle on a cool, summer's evening breeze
Old Spice aftershave
Cocoanut
A freshly peeled banana
Fresh coffee brewing and bacon frying in the morning
Apple pie baking
Pumpkin pie baking
Freshly baked bread
Leather (like a new saddle or bridle)
A baby right after you bathe them and they're all powdery and fresh-smelling
New car smell
New box of crayons
Chocolate chip cookies baking
Turkey roasting
Buttered popcorn


OOps! I almost forgot,
Tangerines
Fresh pine tree smell
Spice cookies
Thunder storms, and the fresh smell after the rain
Chili simmering on a cold winter day

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

I love the smell of a new book!

Other favourite smells/aromas:
New Car
Honeysuckles
Lilies
Coffee Shops (coffee mixed with pastries )
My mother (It may sound weird, but she always had her own distinct aroma - I guess you realize how much you actually enjoy this smell when your parent passes away. )

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

I don't know why or how but I have a strange, small obsession with smells. I like to smell good myself and I love good perfume or good scents in general.

Some of my all time favorites are honey, vanille, exotic fruits, freshly mown grass, the scent you smell when you walk through a garden in the spring/summer (especially those lovely lavender flowers), the sea, cupcakes baking in the oven, the deodorant of my best friend and the smell of freshly washed laundry. Oh, there are so many more. But you have to start somewhere, don't you?

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

- One of Hermione's (HBP) - Mowed grass. It reminds me of summer.
- I have this Fresh & Clean body spray from VS Pink that I love. It is seriously one of the best things i have ever smelled.
- Brownies, cookies, that sort of thing, when they're steaming in the oven.
- New car smell!
- My mom uses a lavender scented fabric softener on my blankets that smells heavenly.

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

My most favourite smell would be petrichor, the smell of cool rain when it falls on dry ground. Freshly mown grass (reminds me of my childhood summers), the aroma of coffee brewing, old books, campfires, the beach, and leather are a few more favoured smells that come to mind...
