I don't usually remember smell. Unless that particular person is with a very special 'smell' that I can't stand.

It will take some more time and age for you to get the hang of it.

Yes I do remember people by smell. The good smells of my grandmother still hang in my mind. The after shave my father wore still is fresh in my mind. On the other side of the coin, I have a relative who needs to smell better. The distinct foul odor of this person's body is absolutely disgusting. This person is married and am surprised the spouse doesn't make some sort of comment about the lack of bathing or showering. Guess there are two sides to every story...lol

That is one of the wretched things I can never stand.How can the people roam around with that stink I don't understand.

I don't understand either. If it was one of our kids, I'd pull them aside and we would talk. This is another family member and it's gross.

Oh yes, the smell of white musk! When my aunt was alived and I went to stay with her everything in her house smelt of white musk, it wasn't an unpleasant odour it was a smell I always associate with her, it was nice actually and you got used to it. Now, whenever I smell white musk I always think of her and I easily flashback to envisaging her house in my head.

My grandmother was a chain-smoker so it was like going into a bar when we went into her house. Not the best memories of I have of my grandmother. Thanks Zelo

Yes, my grandma's smell...the smell of her house and the outside area.....they all were distinctly different smells. And I still remember them years later. There are so many smells from my childhood that I remember....sometimes I remember the smells but can't place them.

Smell is a very powerful medium that always get connected to a certain interesting incident and gets lodged in our brain forever.

I remember the smell of a very dear aunt of mine, who has long passed. She always wore a gorgeous perfume. And years ago there was a certain listick she wore that smelled really nice too. You always knew when she was in the room. She always smelt really nice. Thanks for the memory. :-)
