I love the smell of Crayola crayons, especially the first time you open the box.  No other brand, only Crayola.

Gas stations.  I have no idea why I love the smell, but I do and so does my FI.  Ironically, my FI and I drive an electric car and don’t go to gas stations as much.

I love the smell of fresh cut grass or grass just after it rains

Also the smell of books, new or old, doesn’t matter 🙂

@Bebealways:  A/C smell is my go-to mental happy place when I feel slightly queasy. It’s a cool and clean smell. I love it too. It also reminds me of good times; the smell of the radio station where I worked Friday nights and the smell of the recording studio where I work now.

I love the smell of horse, horse sweat on leather tack, sweet horse feed and different grasses. I particularly enjoy the smell of fresh teff (like timothy grass) and lucerne (alfalfa SIC). 

I love the smell of the inside of my mom’s handbag; chanel and oil of olay.

Oh, grass after a rain is good. I love the smell of a downpour / thunderstorm. I LOVE the smell of a fresh jar / pack of coffee. I sniff it like an addict! lol. Smells I hate, not many but really don’t like the smell of wet dog. I agree with the sun cream and swimming p9ols as a nice reminder of good weather and holidays.

I was actually going to start a post like this yesterday!Smile

I LOVE the smell of puppy breath. They have a very distinct smell when they’re puppies and I willingly let them lick my face because of said smell.

I also love the smell of plastic, but it has to be a very specific type. Usually new bathroom plastic certains have it.

I love/get extremely turned on by the scent of cologne/after shave my fiance uses.

I love the smell of warm scents like vanilla, chocolate, or baked goods candles.

HATE the smell of seafood! I.just.can’t. Fun fact: I used to work at a seafood restaurant. Talk about hell.
