Lilac is my favorite. I cut a bouquet and hang it from my rear view mirror as an air freshener in the spring.

Thanks for bumping this one, Vitauta.

A few more -- mint leaves crushed in your fingers, fresh basil leaves, too; wood smoke; a pine forest; potatoes frying, ditto bacon; cinnamon rolls baking; model airplane glue (just a whiff, not a sniff); orange wood; slightly musty books; carnations; fish fresh-caught from a cold Canadian lake - rolled in cornmeal, frying in Crisco in a cast iron pan on a wood stove.

Not many Florida smells, you sound homesick!

I enjoy all of the smells associated with fall in the north woods, the musty old books, damp wool coats, gun oil, potatoes frying, fresh bread baking etc...

The best one for me though is the smell of sheets that have been dried on the line in the yard.

Love the smells in the country, especially in the spring & fall: Newly upturned black dirt in the fields, morning dew at sunrise, freshly mowed grass, apple blossoms, lilac's, mulberry tree blossoms, harvest time with combining the wheat. My Dh & daughter both have terrible allergies & cannot stand these things, I miss them sometimes.
