We have smelled the Venetian canals in May, don't want to smell them in July or August!
We had a similar experience. Just substitute the word 'bluefish' everywhere you have asparagus and let you imagination run wild.

That reminds me, I really miss hubcaps. When all cars/trucks had hubcaps. In those days, if someone really p*$$#* you off, you could stuff some catfish inside their hubcaps and they couldn't figure out where the smell was coming from.

AHA! It's people like you that are responsible for the premature retirement of the venerated hub cap and its higher class cousin, the wheel cover.

I know others may disagree, but I hate the smell of rain. I also can't stand to smell someone eating a tuna sandwich. I usually have to take my lunch and move away.

...but I love the smell of a basement. It reminds me of Grandpa and Grandma's house.

I can't take the smell of Campbell's cream of tomato soup. I thought it was cream of tomato soup, but no, it's that special Campbell's version that makes me nauseous.

I love the smell of rain, it's the next day when the worms are all out in the sun that stink.

Today, my garlic is smelling up the garage and I'm hot and bothered--I couldn't have made that stink myself, could I?
