mmm, all yummy smells, but there is just nothing that is better than the scent of a little baby. my Mom and i discuss that pretty often; i think she's beginning to get Grandma-instincts but i'm just not ready to make her a Grammy yet, lol. i don't think she wants to say it out loud yet, but...

At Christmas time we make an aroma on the stove that is made up of pineapple juice, orange juice, sugar, cinnamon sticks, clove and lemon. I love that smell.

I agree with the sagebrush. It does smell good especially after it rains. I also like the smell of pine trees baking in the sun on a really hot day. It smells like their sap is boiling. I also forgot another smell that I like the smell of fried chicken cooking.

Rosemary- fresh enough to make you think everything's clean (till you spot the cat hair)
Bergamot
cypress
ginger, especially
and vanilla, but not the stuff they put in candles, the real bean...stuck down in the sugar jar, you open the jar and you get this true vanilla/sugar thing....feels good.
