sense of smell

Right now, my house is filled with the scent of an apple pie baking in the oven. I love the smell of almost anything baking. I love how it smells after it rains and I love how my son smells when he gets out of the bath.

What are your favorites smells?

Since I get smacked now when I try to smell my son after he bathes I wash the dog in Johnson's Baby Shampoo

I love smelling things cook with curry in them.

And NOTHING beats a turkey cooking in the oven on Thanksgiving day.

If sushi had a smell I'd say the smell of sushi - but it doesn't smell! lol

I couldn't agree more! Am I the only one counting down the days until Thanksgiving?

Gosh Cora,

first off, the smell of a sweet baby's neck or your grandsons when they climb into your lap for a hug..the earth after rain, bread baking, my mom's pasta sauce simmering on the stove, apples,cinnamon and cloves, the smell of sun scented roses, ripe fruit you've just picked off the tree..but of all of these, for me, you guessed it my grandsons when we snuggle

don't you just the scent of clean? don't care what it is- laundry, fresh sheets, hand soap- that is just the best scent.

I wish I could smell. Lost it 10 years ago....and it's greatly missed! Now I just have to use my imagination.
