10 smells to sniff at (24)
To some of you this may seem a little odd but yesterday as I sat waiting for a bus a distinct smell wafted beneath my nostrils and it was very comforting. Am I the only one who finds certain smells comforting? Nooooo. I am sure you all have some favourites so feel free to share them in the comments :D
Here are my top 10 favourite smells....
1. Wet mud
This might be due to a childhood passion of making mud pies...A LOT! and yet..I'm not a chef today..lol!
2. Fresh cut grass
I do have hay fever but my allergy is to Tree pollen so grass being cut doesnt bother me so much...and the smell!! Oh the smell...
3. Fresh bread
Maybe everything on my list needs to be prefaced with 'Fresh' but this smell was probably created by the devil him/herself as waft of this and your body craves it.
I had to include this because the smell of bacon is mesmeric, I don't know why, but I think the smell is much better than the taste, but what a smell.
5. Roberto Cavalli perfume
This is my favourite perfume at the moment :D That is all!
6. Clean sheets
Nothing makes you want to go to bed early like freshly cleaned sheets and mores the better if they have been dried on the washing line - you can sink into them and drift off to sleep with such ease.
I know some people are iffy about vanilla, but I like the smell.
8. The sea
The smell of the sea sparks your brain into accessing its memory banks (if like me you live almost as far away from any coastline that you can be in the UK) and it makes me think of blustery days and period novels (those set in a specific period...not the other kind of period! ewwwww).
I nearly never included this, as its only once a year that you will find me buying cinnamon scented candles, and yes its at Christmas.
10. Hair spray
Again with smells and linking to memories, but the smell of hair spray always reminds me of my younger years getting ready to go out, or watching my sister getting ready, and you wouldn't go anywhere in the 80s/early 90s without hair spray. The smell is forever associated with that moment just before the fun starts, haha.
