My Favourite Smells

There are a fair few smells in life that are pretty disgusting. There are probably too many to mention. But there are a handful of smells that I love, that make me happy as soon as my senses come into contact with them.

  • That ‘just rained’ smell – the dewy, muddy, grassy fresh smell that only comes at the start or end of a really, really good rain. That’s the time I love to go and stand outside and just breath – the freshest air you’ll ever ever inhale!
  • Freshly cut grass. This is even better if you go to a local park when the council have just cut the grass! A huge expanse of freshly cut grass smell.
  • I can’t stand coffee. It makes me gaga and leaves this nasty bitter taste in my mouth. But I love the smell of it. It reminds me of being a kid and going into old fashioned coffee shops with hessian sacks of coffee beans everywhere and manual coffee grinders. Hubby has a coffee machine and I love the house smelling of coffee. I’ll never drink it though!
  • Fresh bread. Amazing smell, so homely. You really cannot beat the smell of freshly baked bread.
  • Bacon cooking has to be my all time favourite food smell. The love of bacon and the smell of it cooking is the single biggest reason I could never be vegetarian – I would always succomb to the amazing bacon smell.
  • New Baby Smell. You cannot beat that baby smell. The new baby, lovely smell. I cannot even describe it but it is amazing!

What are your favourite smells?

    The smell of Christmas – mulled wine, cinnamon and spices.
    Cut grass is fantastic especially on a sunny morning as it wafts into the bedroom (and I’m still in bed!)
    Johnsons baby products – they smell lovely and remind me of my neices.

    Bizarrely, I really like the smell of sponges! New sponges….I could just bury my nose in there! Also – my cat’s fur, new Β£ notes, clean bedding (smell and feel!), anything coconut, sun lotion. I also really like the smell of fake tan, that biscuity smell everyone complains about. I love it!

      New sponges?! Weirdo!! Soggy cat fur is quite a nice smell actually! hehe. I’m very familiar with new bank note smell, so nice, before the general public get their grimy paws on it! clean bedding is definitely an amazing smell – like fresh air and bedtime rolled into one! I have no idea what fake tan smells like, never used it or been around anyone using it! x

    Hehehe……..I like a few of the same ones as you and also another favourite is puppy breath. However, a vet helpfully pointed out to me that what it really is is worm breath since all puppies come with worms !! Shattered all my illusions πŸ™‚

      I honestly have no idea what puppy breath smells like!! hehe. However, that would shatter anyone’s illusions I think! Thanks for reading! x
