Obviously, this list is all about favourite smells. I guess my smells aren’t too unorthodox. Maybe Dettol is a bit weird, but the rest you could file in the box marked ‘Mmmm’, I think.
There are a ton of cooking smells I could add to this list. Onion caramelising. Bread. Just out of the oven chocolate cake. Stewed rhubarb. Weeties. Stewed rhubarb AND Weeties. Bacon. Fresh salsa. Toffee. Boiling jam. Just-made chutney. Homemade tomato sauce.
Hm. I wonder if the foodie smells rely on their freshness or in-the-midst-ness to be GOOD smells. I think that’s true… Although I do love the smell of Lee & Perrins Worcestershire sauce and that’s not fresh by any stretch of the imagination.
Perfumes too must hold a special place, particularly the perfumes you associate with your favourite people. Nanna perfume. Mum perfume. Friend perfume. I like those too.
And the smell of people’s homes…. you know how some houses have a particular (hopefully nice) smell?
Or how about people’s WASHING POWDER… when you can smell it on their clothes. I am not sure if that one is good or bad…
