Nice one Gizzard - never know it was called that.  Wonderful smell.

It's a great word isn't it, I think it should be used at least once a day. Amazing what you can pick up from a running forum

Some gret smells listed already; I'll include a few in my random list:

Almonds and marzipan

New magazine print

My dog, when she's clean (can't say I've ever smelt her paws, but shall do later )

Fresh apricots

Fresh baked bread

Play Doh - Before they went and changed it (It's still got a bit of the old smell, but not nearly as lovely).

Fresh laundry 

My boyfriend, fresh from the shower

Edited: For spelling, and also because I've noted that 'fresh' is a bit of a common theme in my list. Good!

A bag of chips from the chipshop with salt and vinegar/..................a taste I can never resist

26/08/2011 at 16:21

Lillies,

fresh cut grass,

coffee (though hate the taste)

A new box of Earl Grey Tea,

rosemary,

coriander,

lime,

gin

I have a theory that people don't mind the smell of their own farts compared to other peoples as you get used to your own smell!

Ah yes lavender - I keep grabbing snippets of it to sniff as I walk past gardens
Lemons, especially if you scrape the skin a bit with your nail

26/08/2011 at 16:24
I do that with rosemary Parky if I see a bush of it.
26/08/2011 at 16:29
Oh yes that too BDB.  I'll often surreptitiously be squidging it and other herbs between my fingers while I talk to people outside their gardens.

Petrol fumes, oh and lit matches..not the safety type.
