Wave Oh yes BS I love those too.

 

Nice morning here, but I don't hold out too much hope for the afternoon.  Clouds beginning to build.

Wave  It did indeed BS and do you know the threatened rain never came.  I am sitting here tonight catching up - hasn't the Forum been busy today - and thinking of tomorrow.  I am going to Fife to pick up my girls and their Mum and tomorrow night the house will be full of voices and laughter and giggles.  Oh I am so looking forward to it all.  It will be   Magic

Brightspark, your comment also sparked a memory in me for a wonderful smell.

It might be a little odd (okay maybe a lot odd) but something that always got me¦.

Puppy breath.

Oh, had to edit, Danast, you are a puppy breath person too? Good. I don't feel too weird now...

 

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

Oh Michelle that was one of mine too. -post 14.  Until you have smelled it you cannot believe how sweet it is.  It makes me want to cry.  

My wee midge ( black lab ) has just come into season and I have to decide in the next  week or so whether or not to let her have pups again.  But oh puppy breath!!!!

Black Lab? Aren't they just the sweetest dogs in the world? I have a Black Lab mix (Dixie) and she is such a love, I don't know what I ever did with out her!I wish I could let her have a litter, but alas, she was a rescue dog and came to me fixed.

So, Puppy Breath=good, Dog Breath=very bad indeed.

Is there a transitional state?

Onions frying in a pan is a mouthwatering smell, on a par with bacon.

That mix of hot air and aviation fumes that hits you when you step onto the tarmac of some warm holiday destination.

Never knowingly underfed

Mid-morning and while shopping, inviting coffee aromas - perhaps with a crepe (chocolate of course!) Smile

Fresh rain in summer is, i beleive, an internationally recognised phenomenon of awesome smellingness, and no-one really knows what causes it. In India they bake terracota discs and leave them out in the sun then moisten them to collect the sent to make perfumes.

I totally see why, it's a gorgeou smell.

also fresh mown grass.

And a roast dinner cooking. or a nice cake. If I'm downstairs baking and my man is up in his office working eh frequently gets drawn down by the smell of the cake in the oven.

 

At the risk of sounding odd, I'd ad cordite from a freshly fired .22 cartridge. I used to adore that smell when I was an air cadet, spent every minute I could on the range, and opften wore my OG shirt to bed because it smelled of lingering cordite.

 

And woodsmoke. I used to love bonfires on the beach when I was a student and the way it made my hoodies smell of woodsmoke for days afterwards.

 

and pacco rabane ultra violet for men. it's the bext perfume ever. I've foloowed strangers in the past because they walked past me smelling of ultra violet. Before my ex and I got together if he'd been round my flat the cushions he had lent on smelled ever so faintly of ultra violet, and i'd hug them and sniff them, but was scared to sniff too much incase i sniffed up all the scent. is that sad?

 

and orange and clove incense.

and, this might be another contravertial one, i really like the smell of cigarettes and beer on a bloke after a night out. it's comforting.

Intolerance will not be tolerated.
