@Bebealways:  I know this is really crazy but I used to have a huge problem with rubber bands. I would gag at the sight of them, back when I was in grade school. My brother once had a paper route and had rubber bands scattered ALL over the living room and I was about having a panic attack.

I’m much better about it now but I really prefer not to look at rubber bands and I never, ever use them if I can avoid it.

On that note I also have a huge problem with popped balloons. The combination of the rubber smell and the spittle typically found on the inside is a no-go.

I love how WD-40 smells, so sweet.

Buffalo sauce smells like baked vomit.

Smells I love: sawdust or freshly cut wood, baby powder or lotion, the ocean, sunblock, sautéed garlic and onions in olive oil, sun warmed berries of any kind, clean laundry. 


Smells I hate: gasoline, nail polish remover, canned tuna fish, spam (old roommate fried it and ate it all the time-yuck!!!), ammonia, indoor swimming pools, wet dog, cooked cabbage, Subway (the sandwich shop).

ETA: feet!  Even if they’re clean. I hate feet with the exception of clean, pudgy baby feet- love them!

Ok, mine is kind of random. You know that high gloss thick paper they use in car brochure booklets? I love the smell of those booklets. I have no idea why, but I guess it goes hand in hand with my love for new car smell. Yeah, I’m weird.

i also love the smell of fresh alfalfa hay.

Hairspray – i was a ballet dancer for 10 years and it reminds me of concert time and competitions. I also love the smell of books.

Hate the smell of corriander ughhh (cilantro i think it’s called in the states?) Oh also that fridge/freezer smell, like when something has been in the fridge or freezer uncovered it gets that weird smell.

I love the smell of dew. That smell is amazing to me, that wet grass freshness of the morning, ice on the car windows. I think it’s more nostalgic than anything else. I love the smell of puppies especially they’re breath lol. Cilantro mmm just takes me back. 

I hate the smell of roses and most flowers, it’s just gross to me. I also don’t care for the smell of newborns. I hate admitting that actually because all the women in my family love that smell. I’m hoping it’ll grow on me but so far no.

@Bebealways:  gross? lol I dunno it’s that really gross smell after it rains.  Not the good rain smell, but the nasty one when all the worms are out all over the ground.
