    Rotisserie chicken

    Sausage meat stuffing

    Engine sheds at historic railways, a nice combination of machine oil & burning coal.

    Christmas puddings, the smell of them always told be Christmas was on the way when I was young.

    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

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

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

    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 !!

    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!
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    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.
