Something you LOVE to smell ? Anything at all ? Is there a reason you like it sooooo much ? What do you think about when you smell it ? Does it bring back a memory ? or does it just pleasure your nose holes ?

OHHHHH what a great discussion!!!!I LOVE lilac. It is my utmost favorite smell, I love how they look in the early summer. It brings back memories of my home in springhill. I just have always loved it we had all kinds of them at my home in springhill and when ever i see a bush of them I have to stop and smell them. I hav tried to find cremes and stuff thaty smell the same but none do at all. Plus I like the smell of a new baby and candy, gummy candy dmells the best. Actually I could probably go on forever about the different smells i love but i will leave it at that!!!

Lilac is a beautiful smell as well. That always reminds me of my Nan. She had bushes and bushes all around her garden and yard. She made sachets for all of our dressers out of dried flowers.

I like the smell of fresh cut grass in the spring time. Smells so good and lilacs of course. My mom would always steal some from trees and put them in the house when I was little now she has her own lilac bush to steal off of. I like sweet pea lotion and bath soap. I also like the smell of wood burning. I like to camp so it reminds of camping.

The smell of the rain on the ocean on a hot day while sailing and the sun is still shining britely! It is the whole experience that makes it pleasurable. Shalom Lil Sis

Sis that would probably have to be my favorite Toilet water. Anais Anais. Although the smell of a newborn baby, runs a tight tie. In fact the first bottle I ever had was given to me as a gift by my mother-in-law right after the birth of my second son. So I think that is why the two smells are intermingled for me :)) I wear it all of the time. I even spritz the bed and pillows lightly with it.

I am in love with the smell of the world after a cleansing rain.... I guess it is the ozone I am smelling - it is so fresh and lively...mmmm I am in love with the scent of lilacs that facilitates sending my thoughts heavenward I am warmed by the smell of fresh yeast rolls rising or baking, which brings back so many lovely memories of my childhood and mother.

Thanks for your response Modestah! I am willing to bet that since your in love with the smell of the "clensing" rain, you DO NOT live in a city. Haha ;) Or in an overpopulated state or province! I am from NOVA Scotia, on the east coast of canada and we dont have many factory's there. i dont think ANY car making factories, and the air is SO much cleaner then in ontario where there is a factory of some sort in every town!! Your lucky tou dont live in a polluted area!!

you are right, I live in the boonies and about 100 miles from anything that is NOT the boonies. I visited nova scotia when I was a teen and thoroughly enjoyed it - the people were so beautiful and gregarious everything was clean and fresh. thank you for the Rating!

i love the smell of fresh rubber gloves. it reminds me of sundays. every sunday evening Nurse Pilchard slaps on her rubber gloves and rolls me on my front to administer my enema. that is as exciting as it gets for me now. Could be worse, could be Jimmy the manky janitor, he looks like he would like to do it!

I love fruity scents, they just smell so sweet and tasty to me. ^__^;; my colognes are mostly fruit-flavored coz I love smelling fruity and tasty and sweet. LOL it doesn't bring any memory, it just tickles my nostrils. ^__^;; there's one scent that brings memory to me though. although, I can't remember the scent itself, I remember where I have smelled it. from my computer science professor back in college. ^__^;; it was his very own male scent. everytime I remember him, it makes me think of how I went crazy over his scent because I just found it so... manly and natural. I could have bet that even his sweat would smell that way. LOL his scent really gave sleepless nights back then. ^__^;; I could have live with it forever. LOL

Hideaway Pizza! The Hideaway has been a pizza restaurant in Stillwater for over fifty years. It's the best pizza place in town, and I just love the smell. I met a girl who worked there who became my wife. But when we were dating, she'd come over to my place after work, and as soon as she entered the apartment my roommate and I could smell the pizza fragrance that was clinging to her. Mmmmmmmm....
