personally, I like the smell of mothballs, gasoline, a wood fire, fresh asphalt, skunks, and cow manure.

The cow manure requires explanation: Ever take a drive out in the country on a warm day and had the windows down and smell cows nearby? Yeah, that. Just smells like a peaceful, idyllic life.

:) for me its wood-smoke from chimmneys, a fire, whatever also really clear clean air with a tang of frost to it, pine, leather :), vanilla.

The first 3 are directly derived from my memories of going on holiday to Aviemore ( Scottish Highlands) for years.

^^ Yaye good evening MasterJedi,

I believe that I enjoy very many beautiful smells and believe that the smells who you lotr_addict are very beautiful also.

^^ I believe that I enjoy very much the smell of Nell and Plato and my Grandfather's house and lovely smells who bless me when I visit the sea and toasted bread and lentil soup and paper and leaves and flowers and I am very sorry as I believe that I may not remember very many more smells that I enjoy. I apologise for being horrible.

Napalm in the morning.

Not really, it's just a partial quote.

I like the smell of french vanilla and hazelnut coffee. I also like various cologne smells, and the smell of laundry.

Gasoline
Coffee
Pipe smoke
Fresh cut grass
Lemons

Above all else, my son's hair after he wakes up from a nap.

There are nice smells like fresh fruits, mint or chlorine, but my hypersensitive smell doesn't tolerate anything for longer time. There are perfumes I like, but I can't use any of them, because of their smell. My windows are always open to reduce the smell of anything. If somebody comes, I must air the room after they go away. People stink!

Back in the early 60s, Beatrix Potter books where quite small, maybe 5 inches by 3.5, they had the finest quality paper and ink Ive ever seen in a book, and the smell of the pages when you opened the cover was exquisite.
If I knew they where printed the same today, I would buy a set from Amazon, just to smell them again.
