    New furniture & carpets have an odd slightly chemical smell, but somehow it makes your home feel refreshed.

    The smell of beer when passing the pubs and clubs when I was quite young.
    The smell of a car interior during the 1970s. Don't ask me why.....

    Tarmac has been mentioned previously, but I remember being told to breathe in deeply when passing newly laid Tarmac as it was good for your lungs.

    I will be surprised if breathing in Tarmac fumes is still advice teachers give out.

    The smell of chlorine that hit you as soon as you went into the swimming baths on school swimming trips.
