Fish cannery towns, paper mills, pre-1960s Secaucus NJ, Sharpie markers, stale eggs, and certain bath houses.

The smell in the house the day after I fry fish or chicken. Not so bad when I am cooking/eating, but later--phew.

Solved that one with a covered deep fryer--not so pervasive now.

Diesel fumes make me sick, and any kind of aerosol spray makes me stop breathing--no air fresheners for me.

We had a woman at work that brought fried fish to warm up at lunch, let's call her, Annoying. I never heard so many people complaining and rolling their eyes about this warmed up fried fish. I've tried to compete as Ms. Annoying, though I couldn't make the whole building whine about it.

Fried liver bugs me. I don't mind fried fish, if I am the one frying it. I lived in an apartment once and every few days somebody was cooking something that made my stomach turn every time I went out my door. Not sure why, but sometimes other peoples' food can smell really good, or really bad....

Used to be generated by the use of carbon tetra chloride fire extinguishers.

I hate waiting in the auto service area at WalMart or a tire repair shop. The smell of new tires is overpowering.
