1) I love "new electronics" smell, right when you unbox a new amp or CD player.

2) The smell of steaks cooking on the grill.

3) Red Perfume.

4) Baking bread.

If we're not supposed to eat animals, then how come they're made out of meat?

As much as I love dogs, I've always been neutral on the puppy breath thing

Great thread.... but SOOO many lovely smells to chose from!!

1)the smell of my hubby and children (not BO or a soap smell, just there nateral scent when im cuddling up to them)

2)freshly washed bed sheets

3)the smell of lamb roasting in the oven on a chilly Autumn/winter day (makes me think of growing up)

4)either freshly cut grass or the smell of summer rain

hahahahahah, that's funny, I'm envisioning you walking into an icy cold garage and taking in a huge ole waft
As a little girl growing up in Chatsworth Ca, I would awaken to my horses talking along with our burrow honking. I'm sure the neighbors adored it, not.
Anyway, I'd sneak down to the barn and quietly lie down with my horsies. I'd pet them while they were lying still and they'd let me. Often times I road Sam or Blackstrap to school, where I'd tie him or her up, visit and take an apple during lunch and then ride 'em home. Many times it rained back then and after school, I'd get on a horse and ride to Roy and Dales house and sit on the porch, while Roy sang to us little girls. The smell of horse maneur while it was raining, brings back to me, having a gentle man, Roy Rogers, care so genuinely for us little tiny girls. Ahhhh.....
I only asked for 4 smells but my Norwegian grandparents kitchen/whole house smelled like heaven on earth. What is that white cream called that forms on newborns in the womb? Disgusting again for most I'm sure, but it should be bottled

And when you smoke bacon over cherry wood, oooooo BABY!
