    I like the smell of
    * Good scotch whisky.
    * Ripe mango.
    * Chicken and vegetables roasting in the oven.
    * Babies (except when they need a nappy change).
    * Really fresh fish - not the "fish market" smell, but a nice fish that I've just caught, cleaned, scaled and washed off in seawater.

    Coffee
    the forest
    the air anywhere after a good thunderstorm
    the ocean, particularly the south Pacific
    vanilla
    meat on the grill

    I get an instant headache from anything involving a volatile hydrocarbon (gasoline, paint, solvents, 99.9% of perfume)

    I get that as well with some paints and solvents, instant and shocking headache. Even if someone is painting on a different floor of an office building I get a headache from the fumes coming through the air con. Perfume seems to be okay though.

    I just put in my order to Yankee Candle to start my new "scent" therapy to help lift my moods. I like to pick scents according to the season. Now its going into Fall so I picked a lot of pumpkin, cinnamon and apple scents. For Christmas it will be balsam and cedar, cinnamon, and cookie smells. Then in Spring I like more fruity and flowery scents. For Summer I have "beachy" scents. Oh! I just ordered a smell for the car too! It's supposed to smell just like leather and customers have given it great reviews saying it smells just like a new car. I'm excited! I'm going to wash and wax the car and clean the leather inside then hang the "car jar" up and I guess we'll see! Whoopee!

    Oh yeah...scented candles. Vanilla, Cranberry-Mandarin, Orange Ice Cream...love em. I like the colors for decorating accents, but if I walk past them I often have to pick them up and snort em. :p

    Of course then I have to carefully put them back exactly positioned where they belong. OCD and all...:eek:

    My very favorite smell is brush fires. Another reason I look forward to autumn, everybody is raking up leaves and sticks and then setting the pile on fire. That aside, most smells from outside. Grass, dirt, trees, leaves, and so forth. The further away from roads I get, the happier I am.

    And this little candle I've had on my desk for two years. "Apple Jack and Peel". It's from a local shop and I think it's her variation of Apple Cinnamon.

    Ozone (that smell of laundry drying outside in the sun)
    Gasoline (I used to tag along to the gas station with my dad when he went to fill up)
    Resinous odors like lavender, tree sap and sage brush in the rain.
    My dog; he's a Vizsla; they never smell bad - always like burnt toast.
    Grilled meat. YUM!

    THIS. :D
    And cannabis :oops:

    Also I used to love the smell of gasoline when I was little (not much sensory overload back then), but now it's just annoying and it can give me headaches.
