WE TALK ABOUT FOOD ALL THE TIME, YET WE HAVE NEGLECTED THE WORLD OF SCENTS!
WHAT SCENTS DO YOU FIND GREAT WHILE OTHERS MAY GAG AT THEM?
(My husband gags if I open a can of tuna!)

My mom had the nose of a beagle. She could smell things a block away! Therefore she always kept the house filled with air freshners because she liked them. Anyone remember the Wick sticks? As an asthmatic kid, I used to spend time outside just breathing until the doc finally explained why the Wick sticks had to go! She did comply but once I grew up and left home those things came back..lol

Otherwise, we always knew dinner was done in the evening by the scent of burnt dinner rolls. ;bg3

Oddly enough, the smell of shoe polish reminds me of my brother's bedroom when we were school kids. They were always polishing their school shoes, lol.

Also the smells of bacon, eggs and coffee reminds me of mornings in our home.

I love the smell of lavender, but John grumbles that it smells like his grandmother!

At the end of our driveway at the old farmhouse we lived in was a huge lilac bush. Smelling those lilacs leaving or coming home on my bike was a scent I smelled every summer.

I hated the smell of my Mom making salmon patties on Fridays.

Oh my, I have a nose like a blood hound (I always knew when my husband's friends were smoking pot in my car, or when the idiot had his girlfriend in my car becaus of her perfume). I hate those scented sprays, also I hate perfume, people tend to use too much. As for favorite scents I love spearmint and orange, the smell of green chile roasting in August, but I also love the smell of pinto beans cooking, fresh baked bread or cookies, cinnamon, the flowers on my tree at night in May.

As far as food goes, i love the smell of a barbecue. Night time, the smell of a campfire also just brings back alot of memories. Now my absolute favorite (not food) is the smell of fall around here. I always say...It smells like October :)
The smell of a campfire in fall....that's something I miss.
