What do you like the smell of?



  • Lol Kwilter, i read my post again afterwards and thats exactly what i read it as and i thought i'd made a typo...i didn't think anyone would notice....image

    on that train of thought - i do like a man in uniform image

  • Yes I'd go for the fireman too, sweaty and smoky...image Has to be clean sweat though not dirty rancid sweat image

    Other smells;

    My loved ones neck and head (when I'm not single) although I did have a partner years ago with an odd smell I didn't like, not bad or dirty just different image 


    Thunder storm

    Wet autumn leaves

    Freshly cut grass/hay especially if  I can hear the lawnmower/combined harvester in the background

    Jasmin, Hyacinth, Lillies and Lilac flowers in particular but all flowers and plants really

    Petrichor (thanks for the new word)

    Coffee beans/powder

    Tobacco leaves

    Baby heads and necks

  • Despite repetition it's got to be the following in this order:

    1) Freshly cut grass (I run better if I can smell this!)
    2) Fresh coffee
    3) New car.

    In fact, if I can drive out to the country in a new car, run through freshly mowed fields and have a fresh coffee when I get back to recover, thats a good day!

    I love the smell of:

    - Petrol (only at the petrol station)
    - Fresh coffee
    - A new book (when you open up the pages)
    - Fresh clothes just out of the washing machine

  • A brand new vinyl record when you take it out of the sleeve the first time.

    The countryside early on a late spring/early summer morning after rain

  • Like the fact you remember vinyl BOTF! I'm a bit of a vinyl collector. DO remember the static you get when you first take it out of the sleeve?

    Anyway, was out running last night and we went past a pub that had its' “Curry and a Pint for a £5” night. The smell of curry in the cold night air was gorgeous.
