    Re: Your favourite smells ... inc unusual ones ..

    Ah fresh donuts remind me of a holiday in Caister as a kid as they had a donut shop near the beach.
    I like the smell of new electronics being used for the first time, that solder smell.
    Cucumber as that reminds me of the summer salads we had as kids when friends came over.
    The smell of WH Smiths, how it used to smell when it was all magazines and books.
    The smell of the old newsagent, sweets and comics.
    Arcades, the old proper ones, not these **** ticket machine jobs.

    I have just had a bath so I am also adding the smell of the bubble bath and deodorant (which I put on prior to getting in) when you get out of the bath - a nicer smell than when one gets in the bath!

    WD40 has quite a nice smell to it.

    Freshly made doughnuts & popcorn.

    Fried onions.

    Pizza.

    When people are selling their house it helps to make some ground coffee or bake bread as the smell is attractive.

    Garlic bread.

    Ikea scented candles.
    Omg ..

    I forgot about fresh doughnuts !!

    Fresh laundry has always been a fave of mine, plus coffee, bread being baked, baked potatoes, and my local takeaway!

    Tetra chloride as used in dry cleaning machines in launderettes

    So when I got the clothes out I would stick my head in pretending to look for a lost sock if anyone asked lol

    Also Tippex - as good as glue for sniffing

    The smell of the bakery department when you enter a supermarket
    The inside of a Tetley tea box - I used to sniff the empty box for that lovely tea smell
    Cut grass
    New booklets and the smell of the print

    And the smell of cinnamon reminds me of Christmas - putting the tree up and all that.

    My favourite smell used to be Ushers brewery until it was brought out and shut down. The worse smell was Bowyers or the slaughter house part of it. The drains smelt terrible. Even now occasionally after all these years that smell sometimes evades the town especially when the soil is disturbed in the area. It's far worse then the sewage works on a bad day.

    Petrichor - the smell when it rains after a long dry spell. First time I smelled that was on holiday as a kid.
    Fresh mowed grass.
    Welding blankets - reminds me of my dad's van as a kid.
    Oddly enough we were struggling to get our bonfire to start a few weeks ago and someone suggested petrol but this bloke said don't use petrol I'll sort it out ...
    Ten minutes later him and his son came back with some big tins of gloss paint !!

    They poured gallons of paint all over the bonfire and set it on fire .. after a slow start the whole thing was burning wonderfully well ..

    Another little petrol based tale ..

    I was sorting our shed out and cams across a petrol cab with an inch or so in the bottom ..

    I decided to tip it out in the corner of our lawn .. just so it wasn't hanging around in the shed ..

    Anyways I decided to set fire to the grass just to see if what would happen ... anyways it burnt non stop for about 25 minutes !!
