Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

Hey mods that I know are reading this!

I searched, in the first two pages there's nothing like this that I could find, so I think I'm good.



Okay, so this is a thread about your favorite smells. Do you like the smell of fresh blueberries? Does cigarette smoke trigger your smile? Do those scented markers make you swoon? Tell us!!

My favorite fragrance list:
Coffee
New-Car smell
Rain
(or the smell right after a rainstorm)
Pumpkin Pie


Now tell us yours!

Re: Your favorite smells, scents, and aromas!

No, fave smell? I have hundreds!

Well, those I remember right now is:

- Fresh-picked raspberries
- Spring on a sunny day in the Sulis mountains (that is the best smell ever)
- A new book, almost untouched by others than me
- Mango/peach tea (love tea in general, really)
- Good food!

I can't write down all, that would take a year, at least. This is my favourite favourite smells, or those I remember these seconds. This really got me thinking about which smells I like, but I do like more than four. Just can't remember them at the mo'...

Wow, our favorite smells are REALLY different!

(not just me and PureBloodGirl)


What's "biscoti"? Sorry, I'm probably being a simpleton here, but I've never heard of it.

Herbal Essence shampoo (the old kind especially)
freshly cut grass
Coppertone sunscreen
the smell of a fire (a bonfire or in a fireplace)
Green apples

Trust you!
I've never smelt eucalyptus or patchouli, but I love those other smells also!!!


And yes, Germany most definitely has its own smell. Every time I come back to the States, when I open my suitcases, they smell totally like Germany!
