    Petrol
    Lit matches
    (the above two not together)
    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 !!

    I remember my Cousin reckoned car exhausts smelt sweetish back when leaded petrol was in regular use.

    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.

    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.

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